More S.D. desserts to try (Desserts #4 & #5)

I was craving a burrito in the worst way and no 24-hour drive-thru restaurants like Roberto’s were going to do. I wanted one from an institution…..a restaurant having survived all the ups and downs like the dot bombs, all the lingering effects of foreclosures (San Diego is one of the hard hit cities where I last read: One in every 37 homes is being foreclosed), and most importantly, one that will still be around 25, 40+ years from now. Any San Diegan who’s knows anything about mexican food has likely been to El Indio Mexican Restaurant on India Street. It’s been around since the 40’s. Might as well make it a national historical landmark. (Silly me, I didn’t snap a shot of my huuuge burrito. Sorry!)

A few doors down is Gelato Vero Caffe. I didn’t know what to expect when I went inside. I certainly didn’t want gelato, and I was in luck because they had other goodies. I wasn’t the least bit disappointed either.

Do yourself (and your stomach) a favor by stopping in both El Indio and Gelato Vero Caffe. You’ll be glad you did!
