wow fog! that is something we don't see too much of in Hawaii. I hope Spring comes for everyone soon.


I've been wanting so much to try ALFORON! They've gotten so many great reviews from others as well. I've read your Alforon posts a few times and the place sounds great. Do you know if they primary serve flatbreads? Do they have any kebab or protein dishes?

Lastly, I'm a huge fan of Baba Ghannouj - how 'smokey' was their version? I tried Taste of Lebanon once and their BG was terrible smokey (tasting) for me.

Beautiful pic of the fog too :)

 Farm Fresh San Diego

The chicken tawook looks absolutely amazing!!


Hi Kat - For some reason, I'm still fascinated by fog.....

Hi Faye - I like the Baba Ghanouj at Village Grill, it's been renamed Babylon Grill, but I've been told it's the same food and same folks.
Ali Baba was also good, but the protein items weren't. They still make my favorite Kubtz:

Hi FFSD - It was very good!


Just went to Sultan Kebab and Baklava and the owner is at the Hillcrest Farmers Market on Sunday. Didn't know he opened up a place in El Cajon until I walked in the door and he recognized me. He offers so much more at the restaurant and can't wait to try the many more Kebabs.


Hi Roland - The selection is wonderful; and not just the kebabs.


Hi Kirk I was wondering if you had any idea of how pho restaurants prepare tripe?

I have cooked tripe before and it has always involved long stewing to tenderize and a strong gamey aroma. It seems to me the tripe in pho is thin shaved with an almost crisp texture, yet lacking in that tripe smell. I would ask, but have no Vietnamese language skills.

If you have any idea or can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it :)


Hi Chris - I only know about doing it the way you described. I'll email you some of my findings.
