Encinitas - New To The Area and Eating Great!

Enorah | Jun 26, 2007 02:24 PM

So, we moved here from Northern California a few weeks ago and are loving the food choices here. I want to express my gratitude to those of you who have taken the time to share here as you all have made wonderful suggestions. We certainly have benefited from the opinions here.

Here are some of my favorites in the area

Kaito and Tomiko for sushi.

At Tomiko I had a piece of Spanish mackerel that I still dream about and the views are truly wonderful.

Everything at Kaito was superior. Every single piece of fish just delicious

For Mexican we have eaten at Bety's, La Especial Norte, and El Torrito Market.

I enjoyed them all for different reasons and could not possibly choose a favorite.

Bety's was friendly and laid back. The flavors in the food were layered and complex and wonderful. I had the rolled tacos with beef, my honey had a grilled shrimp dish, and our friend a carne asada burrito. We were all happy. I also really loved their salsa.

La Especial Norte - well the soups, the soups, yum! So far we've had the tortilla and chicken. I also had a couple of chicken enchiladas with mole sauce that were crazy good.

Last night we picked up a lb. of carnitas at El Torrito, some salsa fresca and corn tortillas. Probably the best carnitas I've eaten. That was fun, sitting at home with our pile of carnitas and toppings, stuffing our faces.
