SD CHers What's Your "Holy Grail" Dish [Moved from SD board]

Those SuperDiners are at it again. This week's column was on the ONE dish they seem to try over and over again searching for the quintessential or perfect version - http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/20...

So just out of curiosity, what is the 1 dish that my fellow San Diego Chowhounds seem to always be on the lookout for? Or the dish you try over and over again no matter where you go searching for that perfect version.

There are a couple of mine:

* Arroz con Leche - it's more than just simple rice pudding. It's more creme anglaise based, not to thick, not too thin, plump (not overcooked) rice, hints of lime and canela

* Corn tortillas & Carnitas - there is NOTHING that compares to soft, plushy corn tortillas wrapped around bits of crisp, soft and velvety pork. And nothing like eating it at Carnitas Aeropuerto on the free road just outside of Zamora, Michoacan, MX at 9 am in the morning after a red-eye flight from LAX-GDL. I've yet to find that perfect match of pork and corn NOB <sigh>
