5 Dishes You Must Try While You're Still Alive!

Mon, 9th Nov 2015

We've all got a bucket list, mine just happens to include these five food dishes that are to-die-for.  Cross these five heavenly dishes off your food bucket list and enter the pearly gates with a full stomach and a satisfied soul.

Buen Appetito - Little Italy- Ossoboco Alla Milanese
One bite into a braised-in-red-wine veal shank of the Ossoboco Alla Milanese dish at Buen Appetito in Little Italy is enough to send your taste buds happily cruising along in a gondola ride down picturesque Milan at night. Known for incorporating Classic Italian and Nouvelle Italian cooking, Buen Appetito braises the veal shank perfectly, transforming the meat into a tender, juicy, savory and heavenly dish.

Prepkitchen- Little Italy- Fusilli Bolognese
When you want your fill of a robust, hearty, Italian comfort meal, the Fusilli Bolognese at Prepkitchen in Little Italy transports you to historic Italy with each flavorful mouthful of the beef and pork flavors packed into every crevice of the wonderful, spiral Fusilli pasta. The delightful, yet sharp combination of Parmigianio-Reggiono cheese delights your food senses as you dream of the culinary delights in Italy, perhaps the dining joint capital of the world.

The Cottage- La Jolla - Crispy Buttermilk Boneless Fried Chicken
Now this, my friends, is truly finger-licking good fried chicken. You'll never have to worry about the "Crispy Buttermilk Boneless Fried Chicken" at The Cottage in La Jolla being mechanically separated, this fried chicken is made from fresh ingredients that will have you convinced the chicken was just freshly delivered from the farm. Tip: you're in La Jolla, so if you must lick your fingers, do so discreetly.

Saigon on 5th- Hillcrest - Coconut Shrimp Specialty
There's nothing tiny about the big and flavorful Coconut Shrimp Specialty dish at Saigon on 5th in Hillcrest. As the name implies, Saigon on 5th is a Vietnamese Restaurant considered by foodies to have some of the tastiest dipping sauces this side of the Western Hemisphere. What sets apart the Coconut Shrimp Specialty dish is the fresh, nice-sized shrimp, baked in a fresh whole coconut, natural coconut juice and their own special seasoning. The burst of coconut and shrimp flavors have you feeling as if you've just stepped into an island of tropical flavors.

The Land and Water Company - Carlsbad - Ankimo Monkfish Liver
Though a tad bit controversial in the food world, Ankimo Monkfish liver, with its extra rich and creamy, yet light and delicate tasteful combination might best be described as the "Foie Gras of the Sea". The silky and velvety sensation on your palate is one you're not soon to forget. Although Ankimo is not found in very many sushi joints in San Diego, The Land and Water Company in the Carlsbad Village features this wonderfully appetizing Japanese delicacy, the perfect complement to your meal and night on the town.
