Pho Ngoc Vietnamese Restaurant

An early morning visit to the slice of Chandler south of the 202 meant we ended up hungry and ready for breakfast, but we don't really know the area at all. Fortunately for us, Google Maps pointed us to Pho Ngoc, were we sat down for pho and banh. The restaurant must be newly opened, as we saw a lot...

Re: Temptations Cafe

I have been back three or four times, generally taking an early or late luncheon with colleagues, as we can talk at a normal volume inside the restaurant, and the food is an excellent mix of "regular" food Americans can eat with relish, and "exotic" stuff that pleases my tastes. ...

Re: Valentine

JayJ is correct about the pastries at Valentine. We rocked up right after they opened for some coffee and pastries, and the A-team was definitely in operation in the baking department. 2024-06-15.jpg The Green Chili Cheddar and Chorizo Scone on the top left was immensely, massively delicious.

Re: San Diego recommendations

Our top SD recommendations are based on a lot of trial and error - as JayJ mentioned, as a visitor it is easy to eat at places without much merit in San Diego. However, we do have some real hits. Azucar , which is a couple blocks from Ocean Beach. If you enjoy JL Patisserie or Essence here in the va...

Re: Feringhee Modern Indian Cuisine

With the exception of the gulab jamun cheesecake, you ordered items entirely different than we had, so I'm please to have some new things to try next time we visit. During our visit, the music was classic jazz from the late '50s and early '60s. Was it something else this time, or is hard bop just n...

Re: Feringhee Modern Indian Cuisine

We drove down the length of the 101 to Chandler this evening for an early dinner before my better half had a social obligation, so here are some pictures of what I regard as very nicely done Americanized Indian food. Exit2Lef has expressed exactly what you can expect, and everything was presented in...

Temptations Cafe

My daughter and I stopped by the Temptations Cafe after an early morning of birding down in the Southeast Valley, prompted by the recent visit by Saturday Faturday . The Cafe is located just across McDowell from the old Motorola Government Business headquarters, now General Dynamics Mission systems,...

Re: Can we talk about Taco Chelo? [DTPHX]

I agree with JayJ's point regarding the chicken and the vegetable tacos. Really outstanding tacos, a head above the rest on the menu.
