  1. Everything you had looked good, especially that duck tostada. OMG.

    I don’t like sitting at barstools either. I like to have some sort of back support.

    I like that there are lot of good places to eat in your neck of the woods. It’s kind of boring down here in suburbian eastern cv.

      Hi CC – The tostada was pretty yummy and so colorful! Oh yeah, I also hate the lack of back support on stools. I’m glad there are new things popping up around Miramar! Makes lunch much more interesting.

    I hope this place does well. I sometimes visit this strip mall for the drive thru Starbucks and Savory Buffet. I saw this place when it was Champs but never visited b/c it always seemed so dark and dreary? I wonder if this place can sustain itself when Ballast Pt is now so close by. I was giggling b/c I seriously think you could create a new dish called pork lion b/c that actually sounds really exotic and delicious for some reason. Like make a sandwich with the face of a lion somehow. Me likes. Those wings look good – did they give you about 4 pieces for $5?

      Hi Faye – Yeah, I never went to Champs, didn’t seem too interesting to me. They have their own beer and there’s a lot of little micro breweries in this area (Saint Archer is like next door down Distribution Ave and there’s also Rough Draft, Mike Hess, AleSmith, 32 North, in addition to Ballast Point). This area is like the craft brew mecca or something. Still haven’t gone to Ballast for lunch! It’s next on my list. And yes, it was 4 pieces of wings for $5. Not bad for such meaty wings!

      Sigh, pork lion. I’ll be fixing that right after I post this comment, damn it.
