In honor of my Tio’s birthday this week, I thought it would be a perfect day to discuss the latest San Diego Follow My Fork day! If you are new to the blog, my uncle runs an Instagram account called Follow.My.Fork (which you can find here) where he posts all about the really yummy food he eats, mostly around his home in San Diego. He always takes me and my brother on food outings and this last one was my belated birthday gift.
We always do at least a 3-course outing and this was no exception. I will have links below to the places we went!
I told him I was craving some ramen, so our first stop was to Menya Ultra to get some authentic ramen. I got the Tonkotsu with an extra egg, butter and added corn. SO good, it was an overcast day but the ramen warmed me right up. I also stole a bite of the braised pork from my uncle’s plate, it is the restaurant’s limited add ons so you can only have 2 orders per table and once it is gone it’s gone. If you want to get it out you have to get there early because people start putting their names in before the restaurant even opens.
Course 2 was to get appetizers of pork xiao long bao- soup dumplings from the tasty Noodle House, which is always what my brother asks for when we go out. Dipping it in a combination of vinegar and chili is the way to go because it adds an extra kick of flavor to the already yummy goodness. Sadly, they weren’t as good this time because the soup kept draining out before we ate them. 🙁 I’m sure we will have a day for them to redeem themselves though.
The final course was a dessert of crepes at Creme de la Crepe. It was a perfect choice because crepes are light and I was already insanely full. My brother and I split a fruit crepe filled with banana, mango, and strawberries while my uncle got the crepe Suzette which gets lit on fire.
A perfect ending to a delicious outing. Bon Appetit
Let me know if you try any of these places, or if you have any suggestions for our next Follow My Fork day!
