What's Cooking?

I think the new Santana's on Rosecrans might be closer to another than this one. Same sign (Both Location Now Open). I think it was about 2 blocks away.


I love your selection of books!


Hi Ambarna - That's crazy. "Kelly" just emailed me and told me that when asked they say they'll keep both restaurants open.

Hi Kat - Thanks...I think I have too many of them though.


Santana's also opened one on Scripps Poway Parkway in the old Carl's Jr. with the indoor playground (about 0.5 miles east of I-15). They call it the Poway location even though it's in San Diego.


Hi Sandy - Looks like Santana's is taking over the city!


Kirk, besides driving around and eating interesting and delicious food, traveling the world and exploring other cultures and their foods, looks like you spend a fair amount of your spare time ...reading about food! Those are great books too!


Hi FH - I think I spend a bit too much $$$ on food books...though it helps me to relax in the evening.

Kirk, cool choices. I saw a book by Elizabeth Andoh called Washoku. I think that book best explained Japanese home style cooking the best.
I can't wait to read Fuchsia Dunlop's new book. It looks great.
Jennifer 8 Lee's book was great. Really gave me a great behind the scenes on Americana Chinese food.
The Harold McGee book was one I saw in Cambridge a long time ago and one that I lusted after. So when I saw the new edition, I immediately ordered a copy.
Another book I thought was excellent is Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food. A very thoughtful look at the food industry and our perceptions of food.
My current book is Vegetarian Indian Cooking. Really cool and the recipes aren't that hard to follow and plus their delicious.


Hi Jeffrey - All 3 books are great - I don't know if you've read Jen Lin-Liu's book yet, but I'm really enjoying it!


You weren't kidding when you said that Santana's is taking over the city. The Wendy's on Mira Mesa Blvd and Black Mountain Rd (near Bolsa) closed recently, and there's a sign for Santana's. I guess they'll be competing with the Roberto's that took over the Burger King about a block away.


Hi Sandy - I guess Santana's wants to give Roberto's a run for their money...for me this is just Burrito saturation.
