Mad Girl Eats Danny’s Donuts in Vista CA!


Danny’s Donuts, Donuts and Bagels, 102 Eucalyptus Ave, Vista, CA.

Donuts. Doughnuts. Whichever way you spell it, doughnuts are the end all be all of sweet goodness. A cup of coffee and a doughnut is the most delectable way to start my morning, afternoon, or evening. lol. Seriously! Finding really genuinely calorie-worthy doughnuts is a bit harder. A list comprised by The Daily Meal of “America’s 25 Best Donuts”, is one that brought me to Danny’s! Danny’s was ranked #6. I don’t trust many lists, because I travel and eat all over, but The Daily Meal never steers me wrong, unlike most.

A delightful variety, nice guy at the window, this tiny bakery shop on the corner deserves its place on the Best Of list. The Blueberry cake doughnut is what they are known for, and also the flavor I’m known for, so let’s have at it! I’m on a maple kick, so throw a long john in there too. OOOOMMMMGGGGeeeee, I’m glad I live on the other side of the country because I would not be able to resist these magical pieces of heaven.

I gently crisp outer and oodles of tender, pillow-y insides makes for a perfect textured doughnut. Add the blueberry flavor and glaze and yes, a divine doughnut. The maple long john was just as scrumptious. The amount of sweetness of the maple frosting and generous portion topping on the doughnut, gave me endless happiness.

Oh boy, I want a doughnut right now! Best doughnuts I have found in Southern California, and I’ve tried MANY. They place has been around since 1922, so they must be doing something right!

Hours: Mon – Fri 4:00am – 12:00pm, Sat – Sun 4:00am – 1:00pm.

Mad Girl Eats San Diego Fish Tacos


South Beach Bar and Grille, 5059 Newport Ave., Ocean Beach, CA.

You can’t go to San Diego and not have fish tacos. If you don’t, you’re a huge fool. The best I have found, without jumping the border into Mexico and going to Ensenada, South Beach Bar and Grille on Ocean Beach just north of downtown San Diego rocks all others.

The far range of tacos to choose from are mesmerizing. Luckily, it was Taco Tuesday so all tacos were $2.75 (except for lobster) so let’s have a variety! I can get beef and chicken tacos anywhere, so I chose a nice mix of grilled and fried goodies from the sea. I tried a few…Wahoo, Lobster, Baja Fish, Oyster, Calamari, and Shrimp.

Each incredibly delicious, fresh, full of flavor. My faves of course were Shrimp and the customary Baja Fish. I love the white sauce on top, it just highlights a tasty bite. I asked in Mexico what it was, they said sour cream, but it wasn’t the sour cream I know…but so crazy good.

The locals also rate this place #1, so I say it’s a must stop if you’re in San Diego. You must stop. Thank me later!

Tips: Sit upstairs if possible, this resto is right on the beach and you can’t beat the view. Cash only. Taco Tuesday lasts all day, so get wild.
