mmm-yoso!!! is the blog. Kirk doesn't want to blog today, neither does ed (from Yuma) that leaves me to let you have insight into my little life...
Hi again. It has come to my attention that some people think because I live in the East County of San Diego yet contributes to this blog, that I am not overly adventurous with my eating, seeing as how a majority of my posts center on Mediterranean foods and taco shops...but that is so untrue. I just try to not 'overlap' posts with Kirk. Truth be told, he and I have extremely the same palates and before I started blogging, I accused him of
stalking following me and The Mister to restaurants, since we had both been there for a meal and then Kirk posted about them a few days later.. like for 3 months in a row...
Anyhow, these are photos just to show you I eat at all these exciting places also, and like it.
Last week, we went back. We could not decide, wanted something fried...so just got the Appetizer Boat ($14) cajun fries, fried okra, onion rings, fish fillets, fried shrimp, potato poppers(potatoes, cheddar and jalapeno), Crab Hut rolls (crab meat, shrimp, pork, taro and carrot in rice paper, fried) served with a variety of sauces...The fry cook here deserves to be paid more. Always, *always* the fried foods here are so perfectly prepared! Here are the accompanying sauces for the boat of fried wonderment! Here is the same old same old 1/2 lb of shrimp...medium heat, 1/2 Old Bay, 1/2 garlic butter... and here are leftovers... As a treat, here is an Old Bay seasoned whole Blue Crab. This brought back such memories. Many, many years ago, when living in Virginia, The Mister and I would get a dozen of these and a six pack of beer and sit on our deck, cracking crabs, getting really messy-and drunk. The taste of fresh blue crab is ...perfect...
Ah, other places I eat... Most of you recognize this place setting- Little Sheep. Kirk took The Mister and I here for our first visit, and we have been back on our own...many times. This is an average meal- two broths, 3 meats, 2 types of dumpling (one is always lamb), tofu in some form, some sort of green and then something to eat without cooking (in this case the lamb skewers)
We really like it here.
Then there was the day- the infamous day not that long ago-when Kirk, ed (from Yuma) and I met for lunch. For first time. Ever. The magic of blogging. What did we order? I got the tapioca noodle based shrimp and 'crab' soup... Both Kirk and ed got the Bo Kho. Kirk says this place makes a mean Bo Kho.
Then there is my latest passion, Yum Asia, (with clear noodles, please) from Asia Cafe. Great in the hot weather.
The pork larb is particularly juicy flavored and made with just enough heat so you can taste the meat as well as enjoy the spices.
So, anyhow, that's it for now. I didn't have enough to do a single post about any of these places, and might not have said much except I love the way the food tastes, so you get to just vicariously enjoy. Links to Kirk's bloggings about all but one of the above restaurants:Crab Hut Little Sheep Asia Cafe . The first five people who can correctly guess which restaurant was chosen as a meeting place for the three of us for our first lunch together will get an e-gift certificate from Peets.
