New and interesting in north inland SD
–China Fun in Carmel mtn area of rancho Bernardo is now Spicy house from Convoy and is a huge upgrade on authentic, non-hot pot, Chinese food in this area. The signage may still be China fun and it seems they still serve Americanized food from the old China fun menu whereas the spicy house menu has more authentic dishes. Service is efficient and not necessarily warm. Very happy to have this close by.
Atlas international market (same owners as balboa market) is open in poway and has an international food court (yes in poway) with Indian, Korean, sushi, pizza, Persian and a bakery with fresh sangak bread. I have not eaten at any of the places but have high hopes as I walked through prior to opening and the menus looked good. The market is also terrific for Asian (compared to other places in area, not compared to hmart or 99 ranch), Indian and middle eastern groceries. They actually have a pickle barrel!
Kikos food truck is now consistently parked at poway Rd and pomerado rd in poway. Not as good as mariscos German but still really good.
If anyone has any recommendations for any type of food anywhere in Sd county or beyond, let me know.
