What San Diegans Eat – Robin Roth
Robin Roth has been a local music personality in San Diego for years. She was a DJ at 91x, and most recently at Rock 105.3 where she hosted the 11th hour every Friday night. But she also can be seen around town DJing at various goth club nights. Robin can be spotted spinning at the Flame’s Club Sabbat, Ascension at the Kava Lounge, and the newest night to start on June 21st at the Satin Lounge – Dominion. She also hosts Pussy Galore at the Whistle Stop – a monthly live band showcase with DJ’s spinning in between sets.
List everything that you consumed in the past 24 hours:
Yesterday for lunch I had a turkey, jack cheese, avocado, cucumber and spinach sandwich on whole wheat bread.
For snacks I had raw almonds, a banana and a protein bar.
I was a bad girl and went to Savory Buffet – Chinese/Japanese buffet on Miramar Road – for dinner last night and stuffed myself. So I ate everything but the kitchen sink. I had cut sushi rolls (crab, spicy tuna, salmon) and salmon and tuna sashimi, pepper shrimp, coconut shrimp, general Tso’s chicken, beef with broccoli, a pot sticker, sautéed kale, steamed asparagus, frozen chocolate yogurt, fruit. FYI…some of these items were fried which is a no-no in my book.
This morning I had a bowl of oat bran flakes cereal with strawberries and non-fat milk.
Only water and Pellegrino to drink in that 24 hours.
Your top five restaurants, meals you like to cook, or your “rotation”:
I LOVE to eat and it’s hard to just pick five places, but here are the ones I can always count on to get a great meal.
Your favorite grocery store:
A Trader Joe’s just opened up in my neighborhood. But I’ve always been a fan of Henry’s and Whole Foods as well.
Your favorite meal you’ve eaten in the past month:
One of my favorites…Macadamia nut encrusted halibut with garlic mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach with garlic. Yes, I LOVE garlic! For dessert, I’ll go with a vanilla crème brulee.
What is one food item you could not bare to live without?
I’ve never lived without it…Dark Chocolate.
What do you want the readers to know about yourself?
I love Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. I could never eat half of the things he does.
My ultimate job would be working for the Food Network as a traveling reporter. It combines two of my favorite things…eating and meeting new people.
