Review: Vegas Goes South of the Border

Review: Vegas Goes South of the Border
Most people think they know Mexican food, but anyone who has eaten Mexican food in San Diego can attest to the fact that it is way different than dishes typical of El Paso.  South of San Diego, the Baja peninsula is separate from mainland Mexico and its food shows the difference.  Baja is known for its seafood with fish tacos, shrimp burritos and whole lobster plates served with tortillas, beans and rice. Baja food is addictive, but not too easy to find in Vegas – until now.  Hussong’s has...

Have You Tried The New BBQ Joint In Toronto?

I did tonight. It was good. The stuff were super friendly, and the service was very fast. I had 3 ribs (dry) with a side salad, the Mrs. had the brisket sandwich hold the bun (of course). I think from order to plate took about 7 minuted flat. The brisket was very good. Not too fatty but a tad plain. The ribs were big, very big. They were fall off the bone, which isn’t my thing, but if it is yours you will love them. The BBQ sauce on the side is very good, not to sweet and not too...

The Isle Casino in Pompano Park is well-known for their casino and racing, but it is about to become famous for their incredibly valuable meal deals.

Cheap Eats – Washington, DC Street Food at Julia’s Empanadas

The stuffed-dough Spanish turnover called the empanada dates back to an ancient Arab dish, first created around the 8th-century. The delicious baked or deep-fried pockets are filled with savory meats and vegetables, or with sweetened fruit and served as a dessert. Fillings vary as much as the cultures that eat them, ranging from plantains to lobster, papaya to hard-boiled eggs. Similar turnovers are found around the world, with the “empanada” traditionally found in Spain and Central and South...
