One of the most amazing cookies I've had: the gingerbread chocolate chunk from Azucar in Ocean Beach. Owner Vivian Hernandez Jackson blends her Cuban heritage and classic French pastry skills for some seriously tasty confections, including the best-selling mojito cookie, and another of my favorites, the key lime tart. The chocolate sea salt caramels (.50 each, photographer below) are lovely. I can't resist Azucar when I'm visiting OB!

Super Cocina specializes in guisados, or stews, making it the place to eat when you're in need of some comfort. The food is served from a steam table, but I've never had a less-than-fresh experience. I still need to go for breakfast because the City Heights restaurant supposedly has the best chilaquiles out there...
|Super Cocina is the bomb. Get a relleno next time you're there!|
The chile relleno is incredible here. The red sauce it comes in is tomato-y sweet and the chile stuffed with creamy cheese is soft and perfect.
