Yes, yes, yes, I am going through a Michelin Star/Celebrity Chef stage. There’s no doubt about it. I go to a new city and I want to try the best, along with the street food. And that’s how I find myself at Brian Malarkey’s Searsucker in San Diego.
His restaurant in San Diego is right in the heart of Gas Lamp on a major corner.
The waitress, Megan, really was quite good and talked me into some Brussels Sprouts. I really didn’t want to get them, as I ALWAYS get Brussels Sprouts. But the allure of Walnuts and Serrano wine, why not?
It was done nicely, but to me, a little on the salty side.I was trying to decide on a main as well. I considered the steak, the duck, but in the end, the scallops won for me. Done with Bok Choy, Bacon, Nori and Sunchoke
Tender and juicy, without a doubt. But what was strange to me was that some bites were salty and some weren’t. Maybe it was just me.For dessert I went with the donuts and two sauces, Chocolate and Pumpkin. The Pumpkin did it for me. But, less than enthused by it. I tried it to experience it. I wound up a little disappointed in the food. The service though was excellent.
