e & drink in san diego

This is a shoutout to the new eatery inside the 99 ranch complex on Clairemont Mesa in San Diego. While not a veg restaurant, they do a super yummy veggie mini hotpot, complete with a litany of sauces and pickled bits to dip in and enjoy with the rice and bubbling veggies. Not being an unfermented soy eater, I had to pick out the tofu and soy skin, but I'll just be sure to order it without next time. Two of us ate for about $12.

The owner is an afficionado of teas as well, and with our meal we received a delicious glass of sweet iced green Alishan tea of the highest quality. She said to try the red tea from Taiwan the next time I come. I think I will!

This place has been here for about 2 go and support them if you're in the area! Then, do what we do and duck into 99 ranch for fresh coconuts, seaweed, funky mushrooms and other Asian delights. There's also a Chinese "pharmacy" in the complex with a doctor on site to help you with your Eastern medicinal needs.
