So I hit up Roy Choi’s new restaurant POT in the Line Hotel the other day for lunch. I had an excellent meal and put up an Instagram pic about the experience. The official POT account there, @eatatpot, likes the post. Cool, I thought. Now curious, I check out their account and see them posting all kinds of cool food pics… like these Fruity Pebbles Rice Krispie Treats they were selling at the Line Cafe that day!!
I didn’t even know there was a Line Cafe and I missed them! :(
But the food at eatatpot was amazing!! Post coming soon…

We had some mind-blowing Okinanwan sea salts in Tokyo on our last trip, used in a number of different ways at several restaurants. Picked up several varieties at a salt specialty shop in Azabu-Jyuban to take home and now started testing them for a dinner party we’re having tomorrow. Such amazing textures and tastes!

Werewolf American Pub, San Diego

I’d been hearing good things about the Werewolf even before I came out to San Diego for Comic Con this year…

I decided to check the joint out for myself for a lunch meeting yesterday and we were pleasantly surprised by the food and the atmosphere. The staff was totally embraced the Comic Con spirit and were dressed in costumes, from Ghostbusters, to Adventure Time to Frozen. A life-sized R2D2 greeted you at the hostess station as you entered, unfortunately blocked in the pic above. Rather than look down on con goers like some local establishments here do, Werewolf welcomed us with open arms.

And the food was just wonderful! We started with their grilled garlic ginger wings, which I fell in love with. Smoky, sweet and spicy, I would eat these every day if I could…

I had their con special which was the Full Boar burger…

A 1/3 lb. patty of 100% wild boar with jack cheese, jalapeno blackberry compote, crispy onions, greens and a roasted garlic aioli!

My colleague ordered the Belly Cubano…

Pork belly glazed in maple syrup and citrus, pressed with Swiss cheese, whole grain mustard and habanero dill pickles…

Both sandwiches were delectable!

If you’re looking for a fun place with friendly folks and fantastic food just a short walk up from the San Diego convention center, I highly recommend you check out the Werewolf!
