Dim Sum

China Max (Dim Sum lunch)

It’s been a hard dim sum season for me and sis. Sounds so dramatic. Like we’re too baby piglets hunting for truffles or something. We haven’t been able to find any restaurants in San Diego that offers decent dim sum. Especially mid week. We were in Convoy one day for lunch and were so desperate… Read More China Max (Dim Sum lunch)

Sababa Kitchen recently opened in Del Sur. I had heard about this restaurant but didn’t know much about it.

This Mediterranean Restaurant /Middle Eastern Restaurant has a cafeteria style ordering system. They offer a variety… Read More Sababa Kitchen

Hot Pot

Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot ($11.95 lunch special) – Mira Mesa

My sister informed me about this new Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot in Mira Mesa. She saw it many months ago when we were eating nearby when she, um, was searching for Pokemon characters (or whatever players search for). She came back and tried to google for information about the opening but nothing came up.… Read More Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot ($11.95 lunch special) – Mira Mesa


Mendocino Farms – La Jolla, CA

It’s been fascinating to see La Jolla Village transform over the years. The shopping strip/mall was old but I never really cared as I had fond memories of spending time in this area with friends when I was younger. The revamping of this mall has been major with big players moving in (Nordstrom Rack, BJ’s… Read More Mendocino Farms – La Jolla, CA


Meizhou Dongpo Restaurant – Arcadia, CA

Meizhou Dongpo Restaurant is a restaurant I have been wanting to try for some time now. They are located in Arcadia, CA. I’ve passed by this restaurant several times and was itching to try their famous Meizhou Roast Duck. My mom is such a lovable parent that she immediately said yes when I threw a… Read More Meizhou Dongpo Restaurant – Arcadia, CA


Hui An Garden – San Diego, CA

My uncle recently treated the family to dinner at Hui An Garden. The restaurant has been in a strange transition over the past few months. I heard a manager from Jasmine took over the restaurant when it was still Fu An Garden but that didn’t fare well. Then it was recently re branded Hui An… Read More Hui An Garden – San Diego, CA


Rock N’ Jenny’s Italian Subs – Escondido, CA

How many sandwiches have I had over a lifetime. Quite a bit I’d like to think. My love of sandwiches has grown over the years as I punish myself over freshly baked bread while counting carbs. We were in Escondido over the weekend and wanted to find a quick/cheap sandwich place to try out before… Read More Rock N’ Jenny’s Italian Subs – Escondido, CA

Alforon – San Diego, CA

I met a friend by SDSU to catch up and treat her to lunch. The pictures of the flatbreads at Alforon had me so hungry. Alforon is a Mediterranean Lebanese restaurant located on El Cajon Blvd. It’s a small restaurant but seems to have a loyal following. I believe the restaurant is owned by a… Read More Alforon – San Diego, CA


Trade Winds Tavern – San Diego, CA

I was curious to see what Trade Winds Tavern was about. I had seen them slowly take over the previous location. I didn’t know much about Trade Winds Tavern except seeing the mural of the girl every time we passed by. I didn’t know if the tavern would be Asian themed in regards to decor,… Read More Trade Winds Tavern – San Diego, CA
