Over the past couple of weeks I've noticed a few changes, and new restaurants opening, or about to open in the Clairemont area.
Aji Seco - New Peruvian Restaurant, first mentioned to me by Candice Woo. We've only had the Pescado a lo Macho and the Lomo Saltado, but the food is decent, and the prices not bad. Located at 4310 Genesee, the restaurant set-up is a bit odd, the dining area for Nieto's Taco Shop connects to Aji Seco, though the kitchens are seperate.
Spicy City - Now under the same Ownership as Yun Gui Garden in Monterey Park. Very few Yunnan dishes, mostly Sichuan. Dishes are prepared with a lighter hand in regards to heat and oil. The offerings are a mixed bag, we've had some pretty good items(chicken feet and chicken with chilies), and some not so good items(Yunnan Chicken in Airpot). Located at 4690 Convoy St.
Thang Thang - Supposedly a sochu joint a la Min Sok Chon. Drinks and pub grub, set to open in the next few weeks. 7905 Engineer Rd.
Jeong Won Korean BBQ - Set to open a few doors down from Spicy City. After asking around, I was told former Owner of Arirang is opening this restaurant. Scheduled to open in the middle of March.
