Posting to the general CA farm for the first time - I usually stick to my home turf in SF Bay Area. I will be in Oceanside for thanksgiving this year, so I'm looking for food recommendations, particularly a Friday post-turkey dinner. I have seen a post on Ruby's on the pier, but that's about all I know. I'm up for places within a 15 minute drive of the beach.
Also, I would like to make a visit to the fabled Chino Ranch Vegetable Shop. I've read about it in Steingarten's book and have the phone, hours, and address. And I know about the cash only policy. Any other tips? Is it easy to find?
Lastly, if you know of good posts about food along the 101 btwn SF & Oceanside, please let me know!
