Well, I gotta tell this to someone. I’m sittin’ here laughing like crazy at myself!
I read the thread and saw the SD. I thought it was for South Dakota! When I found out it was San Diego I had to laugh. Caught in the act of being myself!
Besides following my mother’s admonition to order from the middle of the menu when being treated, I always felt like it sent the wrong message, like, "Now you know you’re getting lucky!". Of course, after dating my fiance for six years, he probably feels like he’s "getting lucky" when I cook his favorite pork chops.
I don’t know about you, elise……….but maybe I’m just used to women who only order lobster when I’m paying![;)]
Puerto Nuevo is a little lobster fishing village just south of Rosarito on the Baja peninsula. They deep-fry their lobsters in the shell, then cut them in half and sometimes finish them on the grill.
I noticed Anthony’s says theirs is served with a cilantro sauce. But I got the scallops, because I never order lobster when I’m not paying.
What’s Puerto Neuevo style? You’ve got me hungry!
Anthony’s has the Puerto Neuevo Lobster? I am SSSOOOO there![:D]
If it’s still there, Some Like It Hot, a southwest Phoenix restaurant owned by a Mexican family, merits consideration. Their Mexican food tasted so good though it is spiced very hot. The food shows no mercy for them, who, what, don’t like VERY HOT! [:)]
Update: We had a great dinner last night at Anthony’s Fish Grotto in San Diego. It’s a little touristy-looking, but has history, a great view of the ocean, and amazing seafood…and spiny lobsters are in season. They also will do the lobsters Puerto Nuevo style. Today we had a mediocre breakfast at the Harbor House on Coast Highway in Oceanside. Great pancakes, but the potatoes had huge chunks of raw green pepper in them, and the steak was just meat-flavored chewing gum.
We’d love to have Alice back if you guys are done with him.
Well, he doesn’t sing, "…I told her that I came from Phoenix city…" so he must have left his heart in Detroit.
It’s a cool BBQ joint Alice has, but I still feel a trip to Lovejoy’s would be bountiful.
I’m assuming from their "have your portrait painted with stevie" link, http://www.johannas-art.com/Portraits.htm , that they have a bit of an obsession with the gold dust woman. Pretty funny stuff. As you can tell, I feel a sense of humor is necessary for any descent into the valley of the sun.
Funny you should tell that story…this particular band he’s touring with, the Rotters, has a song about Stevie Nicks that her legal department did not find very humorous.
By the way, I saw the newfangled Meat Puppets (sans one troublesome Kirkwood) the last time they came around.
Don’t know about Alice’s BBQ. He lives by 44th and Camelback and our friend who lived nearby would see him show up at the grocery store to buy his sunday paper. He’s a good, golf playing republican, perfect for east Phoenix. The big native stars of phoenix are Wayne Newton, Stevie Nicks, Lynda Carter, marty robbins, alice, and the meat puppets. Stevie Nicks story: Our friend James worked for the high end stereo store and went to install an outdoor system at stevie nicks’ pool.
She hated the sound of the Bose outdoor speakers and threw them in the pool! the wonders of Cocaine and 115 degree heat.
As I said, Arizona is haunted! Jerome makes up for the downside of Arizona, however. http://www.azjerome.com/
Except for the island of Tempe, the Valley of the Sun is more midwestern than the Midwest, with a dash of California escapees, who like elsewhere, prefer to remain invisible, lest they incur the wrath of the locals.(anyone who got there before them) I did my time, 85-89,
before escaping to southern oregon.(heaven:missouri+california=oregon) The influx of people from cold climates,
overwhelmingly from the heartland, gives a distinct flavor. That said, Arizona Mexican food is one of the anchors people can secure themselves to when they arrive, much as BBQ is to other locales. It lends an identity they can get on board with. And AzMex food is really good! None of those effete green vegetables you get further west. Charred, spicy, meat! yes!
