Killer Pizza From Mars? Well, maybe it’s not from another planet, but it is seriously tasty pizza right in Escondido. Plus, the décor makes it a fun place to hang out, especially for kids, who love the kitschy outer-space décor with a swirling galaxy of wall art and kooky extra-terrestrial creatures scattered around watching you chow down on your pie. There are lots of video games to entertain the tykes. The daily lunch special is a bargain, with your choice of an 8” pizza with two toppings, a slice with a salad, or a sandwich, plus drink for only $6.03. A favorite pizza is the Chuck Rogers, with chicken, white sauce, onion and tomato. Crust is thick-style, nice and crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle.
One of the best things about living in California is the sheer diversity of cuisines available in the state. that have made the state their home. You can sample cuisine from all over the globe, including some you’ve probably never thought about. The small island of Guam, for example, is represented well at Oceanside’s Guahan Grill. Diners say that the food here is spectacular, full of vibrant flavors and well-prepared meats. The house specialty is kelaguen, a preparation of meat served with lemon, hot pepper, and green onions. It’s a very diverse technique, suiting itself to both barbecue chicken and raw tuna. Also very worth trying is the Chamorro, a special marinade that’s used for fried pork ribs as well as chicken. Locals rave that it’s perfectly incredible. One caveat is that Guamanian food can be quite salty – the natives there eat fruit dipped in soy sauce, for example – so if you’re watching your sodium levels you might want to be careful what you order.
