Romesco: On Amazing Happy Hours

Most of my posts this year have been introspective, somewhat dreary, and always bordering on the clichéd. Sure, a lot's happened. My inner voice whispers:

Yo, lady, this is still a flippin' food blog...

That's right, it is. I haven't been faithful about the posting, but when I do, it really shouldn't be constant musings on my quest for school. At this rate, Frodo and Sam took less time to get to Mordor. Let's get back to the food, with my new love Romesco (not a new restaurant, just new to me).

I had the best happy hour there and covered it for San Diego CityBeat. Take a look at the piece here and I'm including a few extra photos to get you to head to Romesco right now.

At the top's a cochinita pibil slider. Then, the Grandma's tacos de fideos, the chinchulines, and the cazuelita de lengua en pipián. Less elegantly in English, that would be spaghetti tacos, fried tripe, and beef tongue stewed in pipián, which is a mole-style sauce with lots of tasty, pungent spices and a base of pumpkin or squash seeds.

Dessert needs no introduction. These ain't Disneyland churros, folks... it's the real thing, freshly fried and served with a cup of hot chocolate or dulce de leche for dipping.

Don't forget the martinis.
