Dive Deep for Deliciousness [Miramar Speed Circuit]

November 4th, 2011  |  Published in Dive Deep for Deliciousness, Feature  |  16 Comments

I approach my vittles the same way I approach my never ending “where did you find that” wardrobe;  I dive deep people, I dive really deep.  That perfect vintage dress was probably from a friend of a friend’s online shop in Minnesota or snatched up at the most unassuming yard sale.  I learned to dive deep for deliciousness from my parents.  One summer we dined on champagne sorbet at the Beverly Hilton and the following week, we were back home in Appalachia eating chicken fried steak at the YMCA’s cafeteria.  So when I found the most succulent pulled rotisserie chicken sammie at a race track hidden in a section of San Diego’s Corporate Concrete America, I was a sparkly kind of happy.  Miramar Speed Circuit’s indoor track with Honda engined karts and a killer deli redefine 7-minutes in heaven.  My personal fave is the Monaco; fresh french baguette, secret seasoned hot pulled rotisserie chicken, homemade pesto, melted cheese and ran through the garden.  When I asked how they came up with such a gem, I was told the menu was originally created years ago by the masterminds that have since moved on to San Diego’s St. Tropez and Authentic Flavors catering. That pretty much explained everything.  Now go let off some steam and have the best unassuming sammie in San Diego; just don’t underestimate the gal racing next to you in a fine pair of vintage sunglasses and piled high red hair.

    It's the most unassuming of places that serve the most flavorful plates of AWESOME. Sometimes you just need to undress the FANCY to get down to the real goodness. I'm going to have to take my non-fancy boys to the races!!

    This is a great tip about Miramar! I thought there were only fast food joints in that area, but thanks to you, I know where I am headed the next time I am on Miramar Road. Nothing better than a fresh chicken sammie.

    Fun! Thanks for the tip on the food, I didn't even think of trying their food the first time I went, assuming it was better suited for the kids' birthday parties. I'll give it a shot now!

    Does Sammy mean Sandwich???

    • obeychad

      Yep it does. I don't know when the hell that happened – but I figure there are bigger linguistic battles to fight.
