You won’t need the luck of the Irish to find corned beef and cabbage in San Diego on St. Patrick's Day. But your hunt won’t yield anything better than the one at D.Z. Akins. It’s main attraction? Authentic “Jewish soul food” like scrambled lox, eggs and onions, kreplach soup, potato knish and hamantash. But a better reason to visit today is for the corned beef and cabbage plate. Strips of corned beef hash, cabbage and potatoes come with a honey glaze, which offsets the richness of the meat. Red potatoes, freshly baked rye bread, a soup or salad and clover cookie complete the feast. In usual D.Z. Akins' style, the serving is huge. Order it today only for for $13.95 during the lunch hour and for $16.95 after 3 PM. 6930 Alvarado Rd.; 619-265-0218
