Royal Mandarin update:
To follow-up on a comment made on my December 30th post by Johari, regarding the fire at Royal Mandarin. You can see a more detailed story here. I decided to take adrive down to National City myself and check out what's going on.
To get to the point, it looks like Royal Mandarin will be reopening soon, though I think a March date is pretty ambitious.
Taco Truck Stuff:
Over the holidays, I noticed that the Mariscos German Taco Truck was gone from the lot on the corner of Balboa and Clairemont Drive. I hoped that it was only for a break over the holidays, and I was rewarded with a sighting of the truck this past week. So it looks like the truck is back.
On a sadder note, it looks like the La Princesita Taco truck is gone from the Linda Vista location for good. A sad day indeed.....
