  • Annel & Drew's Kitchen
    Though Annel and Drew come from different backgrounds—she's a Michoacán, Mexico, native who learned about food in the kitchens of her family's restaurants, and he's a culinary-school grad who's training to become a certified health counselor—they share a common purpose: to handcraft original meals that use fresh ingredients obtained from local merchants. Together they do just that out of their eponymous mobile kitchen, a food truck that sets up shop a few days a week at accessible locations such as the Leucadia Farmer’s Market, the Oceanside Sunset Market, and right behind you a second ago. As the nutrition expert, it's Drew's job to fill the seasonal menu with healthful dishes such as organic salads and sandwiches made with veggies from Suzie’s Farm. But like a thief who up and stole a whole Amazon warehouse, Annel also has plenty to offer. Having worked at acclaimed LA eatery El Floridita, she's got Cuban cuisine mastered; her kitchen makes a cuban sandwich the Coast News’ David Boylan declared is “as good as it gets.” Her degree in fashion may even have something to do with the artful presentation that marks dishes such as the grilled balsamic artichokes, which were named one of the Best Bites of 2011 in San Diego Magazine’s Best of North County.

  • Surf Brothers Teriyaki
    After graduating from high school, Reza Karkouti dreamed of opening his own teriyaki restaurant. He garnered support from family and friends, and he and his father, Ahad, opened a tiny eatery called Tokyo's Teriyaki in Encinitas in 1992. Through hard work and an attention to detail, the restaurant's reputation grew, and the demand for juicy, teriyaki-glazed chicken and beef quickly spread to other cities. This led Reza’s younger brother, Amir, to help open a second location. Now a seven-location, family-owned chain, Surf Brothers Teriyaki still sees its two siblings focusing on customer service and quality products. The duo chooses natural meats that are minimally processed, hand trimmed, and grilled, avoiding shortcuts such as microwaves, frozen foods, and laser-based slicing. Their Hawaiian-themed restaurants and catering business have been featured in numerous television spots, radio shows, and newspaper articles. Michelle Murphy Zive of SanDiegoFamily.com says the restaurant offers "a taste of Hawaii" and "healthy food served fast." The brothers give back to the community that helped them grow by donating to charitable organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Homes project.
