Oh my god, have you tried the Portabello mushroom & chili tacos that are part of Rubios new gourmet taco menu? Run, don't walk, to the nearest Rubios. Forgive me WW friends but these babies are just too good to pass up.
And if you are in North Park/Kensington area don't miss Bleu Boheme, one of my favorite restaurants, and Kensington Vine, for wine & small bites.
The duck salad at La Vache in Hillcrest is also outstanding, and the moussaka at Georgia's Greek in the Sports Arena area is some of the best I've had.
The macaroni salad at Kehelani's in Encinitas is worth the drive, and beef machaca at La Especiale Norte in Leucadia is worth a look.
Visited the bird house grill in Leucadia, just south of Marcheta cross street, and their hummus is outstanding, very garlicy. I had the special plate with 3 skewers, way too much food for me, but they also offer a seasoning of powered sumac which adds another dimension of flavor. They only take cash, and you can bring your own booze, it's a great value !
