Just moved from PB up to Mira Mesa (Calle Cristobal and Camino Ruiz area) and I'm looking to for some specific recommendations. We've been eating out all week (stove was just delivered yesterday) and have had some good food. Highlights so far have been Roast Duck and Snow Pea Greens at Silver Ark, Pho at Lucky, Kabobs @ Ariana, Sisig and Lechon at New Manila, and of course Popeye's. I think the places I will miss the most from the PB area are Pata Negra/Costa Brava, Home Grown Meats, Wine Time, Pops, Cass St., The Fishery, Great News!, Charlies Best, French Gourmet, Ota, LJ Farmers Market, Cantina, 3rd Corner, Azucar, blah, blah.
First thing I need is a butcher, Bischers in Poway seems kind of far are there any closer options? I will still make a road trip to LJ for grass-fed, and little Italy for Curtis's chicken.
Sushi - Closer than Katio.
If I had guests comming and needed good sherry vinegar fast, where would I go?
Burgers, wings, good beer - not many places cover the trifecta but High Dive come close are there any options in MM?
Bakery - Baguette, Boules, Batards any thing in the area? I know I can get some good pan de sal.
Don't get me wrong I will travel great distances for food, just trying to get the lay of the land. Any word on Azteca market? Got some props on the chorizo thread. Please feel free to share you favorites. I'm very happy to be close to many of the Asian markets and eatery's. Thanks for the assistance.
