I’m already trying to edit the Juniper & Ivy posts otherwise there will be too many. Definitely one of the best things about San Diego!

Yet another fantastic meal at one of my favorites, Momofuku Ko. This was actually my first visit for lunch and I especially loved the new-to-me pork and squash dish. I’m missing a few photos but I overcast about Ko anyway!

I really cannot say enough good things about the large format fried chicken dinner at the Breslin. I was skeptical as nothing for a group ever seems to be as good as individual. My pictures do not at all convey how much food there was. We could have easily fed twice as many people. Everything was absolutely delicious and I could not stop eating. And for NYC this was an absolutely incredible value.
I don’t know what the typical dining scene is in Tijuana on a weekday but i was very surprised to almost have the entire restaurant to myself for lunch. Javier Plascencia had a place right down the street from my new apartment but unfortunately it closed before I moved. My lunch at Mision 19 was lovely as was the service and for a minute I really wasn’t sure where I was but I wouldn’t have guessed Tijuana. If you find yourself in Baja California absolutely seek out one of Plascencia’s spots.
Tacos El Franc
I really hope that some of the rumors of Mexican taco spots moving north of the border come to fruition. These were delicious and ridiculously cheap.
