Great SD food blog search engine idea Kirk, I can definitely use it! I've always been curious to ask, did you have a food blog when you were back in Hawaii? It hasn't even been a year for me and my older stuff feels ancient already. I can't believe you've been doing this 8 years +!!


Hey Dennis - Though it sometimes feels like 8 years, or even 80, we've only been doing this for about 4 years! ;o) When I left Honolulu in '97, blogging was not even heard of yet! Let me know what you think of the search engine.


I still need to try out Crab Hut, we almost went there the other night, but decided to go to Tofu house instead. Oh well, maybe next time.


Ah missed me and my little SD blog,



everything looks and sounds delicious :)

Thanks for the link to the sweet tater fries recipe. A fish shop in my area out here does a credible version. The coating gives the fries a nice crunch to got with the taste of sweet potatoes.


Of all the times I've been to Crab Hut, I still haven't tried their sweet potato fries. The Mister was just saying the other day he had a craving for Crab Hut.I'm getting the sweet 'taters instead of the Cajun fries next time.

I tried making them once and I couldn't get it crisp enough. But I think I'm going to try WP's recipe. I like the shrimp on top idea!


Hi Lynnea - Yes, check them out.

Hi Zach - Ok, you should be there now.

Hi Kat - As a whole, yes.

Hi Ed - No problemo.

Hi Carol - You should get some Banh Tom from Vien Dong Restaurant in GG, next time you're in the area.

You are such a SD resource Kirk! I think I am going to have to move in with you and the Missus someday, just so that I can be an SD food blog too!


Hi PE - Geez, I dunno what to say.... Thanks as always!


I am also a San Diego based food blogger - love following your blog!


Hi Kristin - OK, you've been added to the search. Thanks for letting me know.

I would LOVE to try out Crab Hut but the parking area is like parking in a jungle filled with hungry animals looking for prey lol. It doesn't help when you got Yogurt World, Tofu House, Tapioca Express, and O'briens pub in the same plaza. Grrr :P


Hi Brian - It is the parking lot from hell.....I park on a side street and walk.

Love that you build a custom blog search! I **think** you should be able to trim the search box size to fit your sidebar. I remember playing around with it a lot, but then because I wanted something viral, I went with the widget approach so other people could embed it. It's surprising how useful it can be; when you want to check out a place, you can easily see what other bloggers have been there.

Happy blogging, and keep it up!



Hi Krista - Thanks for the inspiration and tips!


My husband LOVES Indian food, especially Chicken Tikka Marsala. Is this a good place to take him in SD?


Hi Wyndham - I don't think Surati Farsan is what you want, first off it's vegetarian....

If you don't mind a severe lack of ambiance, I'd give Punjabi Tandoor a try:
