All of these places sound so yummy right now!  I'm gonna have to go grab some food once I get off work   If she was doing some cheap Asian, I'd have her go to Dao Son on El Cajon Blvd (it's across from the Red Fox Room).  We used to go there all the time, but now that we live a little bit further away, it's not as accessible 

Oh good one! & how can we forget (while we're in the neighborhood) The Chicken Pie Shop?

Yum. I'd have to throw in Ponce's for some old fashioned, cheap, Mexican food (with great margs).  And something I'm craving right now.... Phil's BBQ!

One more, my favorite Thai is Kafe Yen in PB at the pier. Love, love,
love their food and since they do not have an alcohol license the bill
is usually not very high...

binibining,

Yes - Doughnut Star is on Washington across the street from the "dueling grocery stores".  (There's a Vons and an Albertson's across the street from eachother - don't know why, it's a mystery.)

The best way to get there is exit Washington Street from the 5 fwy and head east.  You will pass Gelato Vera (and all of the other tasties on India Street), The Lamplighter and about 4 lights.  It will be on your right.

If you get to the grocery stores, you've just passed it.  It's on the corner across from the Vons.

Happy snacking!

:)

I just wanted to let ya'll know I went to Donut Star and Grab n Go and was quite pleased. 

The only thing was that the Grilled Cheese Feta cost me $6.35!  I thought that was expensive.

Each store serves a purpose in my life (I live in the neighborhood)  - I hit ALbertson's when I'm planning to linger and want a nicer shopping experience, or am buying meat/seafood, etc.  Von's, which is a little older (but they should remodel it and do up the Retro feel..) is the place to go when I have forgotten butter for a recipe and don't want to stand in line with the after-work crowd at Albie's.  And I sometimes feel a little sorry for that Von's; it gets overshadowed by the nicer store across the street.  I think they try to compensate by being overly nice, such as the bagger ALWAYS asking if I need help out, even if I only have that one stick of butter!   Sorry to hijack the post!
SPeaking if the actual restaurants, we took my mom from Indiana to Big Kitchen and she was fine, not too impressed until she noticed the Rachel Ray article framed on the wall above her.  Needless to say, she perked right up and suddenly was in love with the place!  Whatever it takes....
