Just a quick one for this Wednesday:
Anny's Fine Burgers coming to Clairemont:
Man, it was just a couple of months ago that I noticed Dusit Thai had replaced Mrs. Rice in the strip mall on the corner of Clairemont Mesa and Kearney Villa Road. I guess we didn't need yet another Thia Restaurant in the area......what I guess we do need is another burger joint!
The sign says Anny's Fine Burgers is opening in this spot. I recalled hearing this name before, and yes Cathy has posted on the Santee location of Anny's.
I had thought we'd hit the burger saturation point, but maybe not.

Jonathan Gold's 99 Essential LA Restaurants, rap style:
Jonathan Gold's decision to leave LA Weekly after almost 30 off and on years was pretty big news to me. The only food critic to ever win a Pulitzer Prize, he was source of some great restaurant recommendations when we lived in LA. Haven't really been keeping up in recent years, but for me it's the end of an era. There was, at least for me, a silver lining. Someone actually did the rap version of Jonathan Gold 99 Restaurants to Jay-Z's "99 Problems." Even more amazing, this person actually ate at each of these places first.
Talk about dedication. JG has indeed earned a Pulitzer, but this dude deserves something. So check it out. My favorite lines are "Oinkster Heart Disease" and "Gorbal's of Steel". Gotta love it!
Hope everyone is having a great week!
