Rolled in early this morning to San Diego where I’ve been asked to sit as one of the judges of the San Diego International Wine Competition (and ya’ll thought I was kidding about drinking oaky “Napa Cab” on Facebook!).
Made a beeline to Super Cocina (above) where brother Tad hooked me up with the goods. Man, anyone who comes to San Diego and doesn’t check this place out might as well just stay home… I love it that much… The chicharrònes were super tender and swam deliciously in their tomatillo sauce.
In other news…
I just finished translating Franco’s editorial on the “Italian Unity Bottle Project.” Click here to see what he had to say.
Brother Tad’s office is out in City Heights on the east side of San Diego. I went out there this morning to meet him for lunch at Super Cocina. Man, I’m here to tell you, this place ROCKS… well worth the drive and then some… I can’t remember the name of this beef stew with potatoes, a dish the owner said was from Mexico City. Anyone know?
But the chicharrones… o my goodness… the chicharrones… slowly stewed melt-in-your-mouth pork rind and tomatillos… I also had the green mole (on the right of the dish).
One of the crazy things about this family-friendly, more-than-reasonably-priced restaurant is that the owner gives you little tasting cups of any and all of the dishes in the food line. The owner knows that he’s got the good stuff and that you’re going to like it.
Highly, highly recommended… and definitely worth the drive. Thanks Brother Tad for hipping me to this awesome place!
