Dumpling Inn (moving?) – San Diego, CA

DUMPLING INN I swore off the popular Dumpling Inn some years ago as I’d written it off as the ‘Ha tricked you’ best xiao long bao restaurant here in San Diego. Plus, I was SO OVER my quest of xiao long bao (soup dumplings) in San Diego. But as with any food addiction (be a… Read More Dumpling Inn (moving?) – San Diego, CA

I just love… Read More Sieu Sieu BBQ – San Diego, CA

OB Noodle House – Ocean Beach (San Diego), CA

OB NOODLE HOUSE I love my dude buddies. Buddies are sometimes better than girlfriends because they’re just non fussy, clumsy, and just plain ol’ funny. You know – like dudes. I don’t have a lot of buddies that are foodies. They honestly don’t care where or what they eat. Because, you know – they’re dudes.… Read More OB Noodle House – Ocean Beach (San Diego), CA

Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern – Point Loma (San Diego), CA

Gatten Sushi (Revolving sushi belt + FREE DONUTS @ Del Mar Race Track 7/19/14) – Monterey Park, CA

GATTEN SUSHI This post will be mostly pics of sushi because 1) I’m a bit exhausted from a long week and 2) this sushi place reminds me of my family (who happens to be in town). AT&T set up new service at my house the other day. Long story short, I spent over 10+ hours… Read More Gatten Sushi (Revolving sushi belt + FREE DONUTS @ Del Mar Race Track 7/19/14) – Monterey Park, CA

Eureka! Discover American Craft (Happy Hour & Lunch) – La Jolla, CA

Eureka! Discover American Craft Gosh. I’ve wanted to like this place. Friend and I went to try out their Happy Hour one early evening. I just called Eureka! to confirm their Happy Hour days.

Tobey’s 19th Hole Restaurant (& Balboa Park visit) – San Diego, CA

TOBEY’S 19TH HOLE CAFE Do you ever just wake up in the morning WANTING to eat something for breakfast SO BAD. Granted, my last meal was at 11a the previous day so I woke up starving.

Jeong Won Korean BBQ Buffet ($21.95 AYCE)- San Diego, CA

Jeong Won Korean BBQ Buffet This place is my go-to AYCE Korean BBQ here in San Diego. I believe they are the only KBBQ, here in San Diego, that offers ‘serve yourself’ meats/vegetables/banchan. I, personally, prefer that as it gives you a wealth of variety to choose from. Besides, I like LOOKING at what I can… Read More Jeong Won Korean BBQ Buffet ($21.95 AYCE)- San Diego, CA
