Whenever I head down to San Diego to visit my son Dustin, we always stop at True North. It’s a great combination of sports bar, craft beer bar and gourmet comfort food joint. On my last visit, we sat at the bar to a packed house watching the England v. Italy World Cup match, downed a few Manzanita Riverwalk Blonde and Sculpin IPAs, and feasted on one of the best bar plates ever – Loaded Tots!
Now, these are not your everyday frozen Ore Ida tots – these are freshly made tots, smothered in a plethora of choices. On this day, it was the Carne Asada and Avocado tots – dripping with a spicy chipotle mayo sauce, pico de gallo, fresh avo slices and some really well seasoned grilled carne. This one was a winner – even if England wasn’t.
