Gor Gai Thai Eatery – 4S Ranch

I don’t eat Thai food often. I never understood why I don’t crave Thai food the way I do Japanese or Shanghai or whatever. I’ve visited Thailand, solo on my own, for two Decembers too. A new Thai restaurant opened up in 4S Ranch. Gor Gai Thai Eatery is a small restaurant. Cdj has wanted… Read More Gor Gai Thai Eatery – 4S Ranch

Phil’s BBQ (finally a revisit after 10 years)

I was in San Marcos with some work people. I asked if they’ve ever tried Phil’s BBQ which they replied ‘hells yeah it’s awesome’. They asked if I’ve ever tried any of Phil’s BBQ locations. I shrugged and said yeah, like ten years ago. They both said something so incredibly funny …”don’t you think Phil’s… Read More Phil’s BBQ (finally a revisit after 10 years)

Shabu-Works (formerly Little Sheep) $17.99 AYCE Lunch Special

My sister recently visited Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot in Mira Mesa. She said the restaurant was adding a ‘buffet’ style station to this location. The set up (inside) was almost complete. Fast forward to today and the restaurant is now re branded as Shabu-Works. Shabu-Works is still owned by the founders of Little Sheep… Read More Shabu-Works (formerly Little Sheep) $17.99 AYCE Lunch Special

Yu Spa (restaurant & fun date) – San Diego, CA

Funny things are happening. Not all things funny means all things happy/sad. I’m learning to embrace what’s currently in front of me and to say yes more often. As a surprise a few weeks ago, Cdj had his team design a new blog logo. It’s inspired me to share more stories that bring food and… Read More Yu Spa (restaurant & fun date) – San Diego, CA

ASIAN FUSION

Cross Street Chicken & Beer – San Diego, CA

Cross Street Chicken & Beer has been on my absolute ‘to try’ list for 2018. I’m a sucker for fried chicken wings. My food adventures, the beginning of this new year, has been dismal. I’ve been ordering more take out than I’d like or am used to. Then excessively exercising all the dumb calories away.… Read More Cross Street Chicken & Beer – San Diego, CA

Tandoori Grill ($8.99 Lunch Specials) – San Marcos, CA

We sometimes switch on and off who brings lunch to meetings. It was my turn the other day and I gladly took advantage of it. How you ask. Well, I get to 1) pick something *I* crave and 2) I can expense it. Tandoori Grill is located in San Marcos. I was originally looking for… Read More Tandoori Grill ($8.99 Lunch Specials) – San Marcos, CA

Seafood

Seasurf Fish Co – Del Mar, CA

I’m surprisingly enjoying life, as it is, at the moment. My schedule has been non stop with work but it’s been balanced with meeting friends to touch base on how life is ever changing for everyone. My friend Diana has been a steady force keeping my mind focused when my mind wanders. She’s a foodie… Read More Seasurf Fish Co – Del Mar, CA

Smokeyard BBQ & Chop Shop – La Jolla (UTC)

That was a long break of not blogging. Work has been all consuming (in a good way) so writing about food blissfully took a second place to actually making money (maybe I’ll profit from this blog one day). Smokeyard BBQ & Chop Shop opened a few weeks ago. I had heard nothing about this new… Read More Smokeyard BBQ & Chop Shop – La Jolla (UTC)

Brigantine – Del Mar, CA

I think I’m the only one in San Diego who likes the dreary weather. Friend and I were free for lunch so we both decided to try Brigantine in Del Mar. They open at 11:30a. Valet parking is the only option (priced at $6) here unless you want to find paid street parking. Brigantine Del… Read More Brigantine – Del Mar, CA

Burgers

Shake Shack – La Jolla (UTC), CA

I’ll admit that I buy into the ‘over hyped’. At times. But, sis and I have agreement that no new place is worth a more than 15+ min wait nowadays. We’ve all heard of Shake Shack coming to the revamped UTC mall in La Jolla. I personally didn’t have much knowledge of this burger joint.… Read More Shake Shack – La Jolla (UTC), CA
