Good vs Bad – Good Meal in San Diego

When I went down to San Diego, I knew my fellow foodie friend Jonathan would be thinking of some good spots for us to check out. And boy did he deliver! We headed to the Linkery restaurant—and my initial thought was “We’re going to a place that only has sausages?” But this place is so much more than that.

Not sure what use to be in the space, but there is a great roll-up door that on the hot summer night I was there, it was rolled up and people could feel the cool San Diego breeze. The menu is awesome—and includes details about the farms the food comes from, the methods of preparation, and really focuses on local, organic and sustainable. There’s a whole section on the back of the menu called “Meet Your Meal” that even talks about the farmers themselves. I loved it.

The house made links are awesome (our favorite of the night was the Sweet Chinese link—I think I might have a new nickname…), and the one that sounded really good (but they had sold out by the time we got there!) was the curry chicken link.

Highlight of the dinner (for me!) was the Complete Burger. Grass-fed beef, house cured bacon, aged Gouda cheese, tomatoes, grilled onions, grilled pineapple, and topped off with a fried egg. YUM. (Although kind of filling—good thing I had my friend Bahram to share it with!)

A great place for dinner…especially for those who care about where their food comes from!
