For instance, the day after the wedding, my local homey demanded I steer our out-of-friends to the perfunctory tourist trap known as The Fish Market (downtown on the bay). Dissapointing. The oysters were ok, the chowder less so, and the entrees boring. Meh.
And really nothing by the beach was anything at all to write home about.
I did drop off my mom at my cousin’s in Linda Vista, and stopped by K Sandwiches (I think that’s the name). I was actually looking for my old Pho haunt when I lived there 9 years ago, but it was no longer. I did have a decent bbq pork banh mi and some curried chicken and a couple crusty french rolls to go. That — and the steak dinner I had at the wedding, the chasyu ramen I had at Takara at Mitsuye(sic?) supermarket @805/163/Convoy, and In-N-Out Burger — were the highlight of the trip.
Come to think of it, it was a pretty good trip for only 4 days consumed by a wedding in which I was a groomsman. Next time I need to really explore my former stomping grounds.]]>
