I realize this is asking a lot, but: What's good, chow-ish, and not too expensive in Coronado?
This is for a group of visiting history professors who study China and other East Asian lands, so food wimpery is no problem; most of these folks scarf down bowls of Sichuan peppercorns for breakfast. The more unusual the origin of the food, the better -- and definitely not necessarily Chinese; these folks can get great Chinese back in NYC or Boston or Shanghai. (If we want great Chinese we'll go to Ba Ren on the mainland!) No need to stoke the "Bay view" fetish, either: the food's the thing, and academic money is tight.
"Unusual origin," for visitors, of course, can include good authentic Mexican or Left Coast Yew-Ess chow. But Bhutanese or Eritrean would be even better (yeah, right, I'd assume those are not likely in Coronado, but that's why I'm asking).
Thank you for attending to my obnoxiously demanding request!
