More Restaurants in San Diego’s Expanding Gayborhood

Hillcrest - Apple MapsWe hope you enjoyed the mouth-watering reviews of restaurants and eateries in Mission Hills, Bankers Hill and Hillcrest (issue #153). We continue our exploration of gastronomic delights in this issue and sample the fare found throughout University Heights, South Park, North Park and Adams Avenue. Eat this, hungry readers!
University Heights

Pomegranate (2312 El Cajon Blvd.) offers Russian-Georgian cuisine. Borscht? You bet. Their deep red-purple beetroot soup is simmered for hours until the chunks of beet melt in your mouth and is served with a dollop of sour cream. My friend raved about the Salad Sampler Platter which offers tastes of potato, beet, carrot, eggplant and bean salads. I was smitten by the pelmeni dumplings stuffed with meats and topped with a yogurt dill sauce. For dessert, we split the Toad Sweat Ice Cream which brought a bit of heat to the cool sweetness. Lots of fascinating graffiti on the walls of the dimly lit dining room.

If you’re yearning for modern European fare, then visit Hanna’s Gourmet (2864 Adams Ave.). The apple and goat cheese stuffed chicken was filling, but not heavy. The potato butternut squash mash paired well with the chicken as did the tarragon sauce. Linger in the Hanna’s bright homey dining room or on the adjacent patio. Be sure to leave room for dessert. The moist carrot cake is phenomenal and you might want to take a second slice home for a midnight treat. Open for lunch and dinner. Closed Monday and Tuesday.
