Korean, Tofu

D&C Tofu House – San Diego (Mira Mesa), CA

My quest for Korean Tofu continues in Mira Mesa. WTF is wrong with me. At least that’s what sis keeps telling me every time I suggest trying another tofu house. Plus, keep in mind these visits (to D&C Tofu House) were during the heat wave. I haven’t heard much about D&C Tofu House from other… Read More D&C Tofu House – San Diego (Mira Mesa), CA

SEA180 Coastal Tavern (Yelp Event)

I first heard about SEA180 Coastal Tavern from Reader Ben a few months back. I’m not familiar with Imperial Beach nor am I someone to drive the extra distance to try out Baja Mediterranean food. So it was nice when Yelp partnered with SEA180 Coastal Tavern to host an event. At these events, my two… Read More SEA180 Coastal Tavern (Yelp Event)

Roy Yamaguchi’s Pacific Rim Cuisine (Aloha Hour) – La Jolla, CA

It’s still strange to me why they rebranded this restaurant to it’s current name, Roy Yamaguchi. I still just see this place, simply, as Roy’s. Toxie, Snooks, and I finally were able to get together yesterday. They let me choose a place and I suggested Green Acres as they were having a Wine Wednesday ‘get… Read More Roy Yamaguchi’s Pacific Rim Cuisine (Aloha Hour) – La Jolla, CA

Cellar Door (Underground Supper Club + JT SNL Crew) – San Diego, CA

Cellar Door Tommy informed me of an underground supper club event. I asked where it was going to take place. “I can’t tell you that. Then it wouldn’t be underground” was his reply. Let me tell you a recipe for disaster at FayesFork. Sitting at a table with random strangers + No knowledge of menu… Read More Cellar Door (Underground Supper Club + JT SNL Crew) – San Diego, CA

El Agave Restaurant and Tequileria – Del Mar, CA

El Agave Restaurant and Tequileria I was really bummed when Flavor del Mar closed down last year. I enjoyed the food and ambiance of Flavor. Plus I was a huge fan of Chef Brian Redzikowski. I heard El Agave was taking over the space. I was a bit excited as it seemed like a great… Read More El Agave Restaurant and Tequileria – Del Mar, CA

Shozen & Manpo BBQ – San Diego (Mira Mesa), CA

Ok. Obviously, as you can see, I’ve been on a weird Korean tofu/BBQ kick for the past few weeks. I’ve been trying to keep it in the Mira Mesa part of town to keep it interesting. Shozen has been around for ages and my family used to go there for their grille-at-the-table BBQ. But as… Read More Shozen & Manpo BBQ – San Diego (Mira Mesa), CA

Catalina Offshore Products (& chance meeting grumpy Tommy Gomes) – San Diego, CA

Catalina Offshore Products Who hasn’t heard of Catalina Offshore Products. Or more so about their fishmonger Tommy Gomes. I’ve heard so much about him. I’m not all that into his superstardom from being on Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. That doesn’t phase me all that much. What does phase me is all the readings on… Read More Catalina Offshore Products (& chance meeting grumpy Tommy Gomes) – San Diego, CA

Original Pancake House (Eating like a Weirdo) – Poway, CA

Original Pancake House Look. *I* don’t think I eat like a weirdo but all my friends and family do. It’s rare that I don’t somehow modify a dish (as stated on menu) when I order. I don’t see that as a bad thing because 1) I’m paying for it and think it’s only right to… Read More Original Pancake House (Eating like a Weirdo) – Poway, CA

H Mart (Fermented Skate Wing?!!) & Paris Cafe findings (+ Donkey Wine ramblings) – San Diego, CA

I honestly should have separated out these topics into multiple posts but hey, I’m tired and it’s hot as all frekkkkk today. I can’t even cuss right because I’m that miserable from the heat. I haven’t been going to H Mart as often. It’s still a cool market (actually they have A/C…crap, maybe I should… Read More H Mart (Fermented Skate Wing?!!) & Paris Cafe findings (+ Donkey Wine ramblings) – San Diego, CA
