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

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

Shan Xi Magic Kitchen ( no rice? + NYE dinner)

Happy New Year 2018! That’s the second time I’ve written 2018 this year. I had some meaningful end of the year thoughts I was going to post before the new year but was too busy eating to do so. Figures right. Annie from Jewskimo had told me about Shan Xi Magic Kitchen some time ago.… Read More Shan Xi Magic Kitchen ( no rice? + NYE dinner)

Rancho Bernardo Inn ( Day at the Spa + Eats – all day )

I think this might be the second to last post before New Years for me. So, why not post about a girlfriends day that still has me smiling. I can go on how much my friends mean to me but I’m sure you already know that (as you could probably say the same about the friends… Read More Rancho Bernardo Inn ( Day at the Spa + Eats – all day )

Hinotez ( Christmas Eve dinner) – San Diego, CA

I didn’t think I’d be having Christmas Eve dinner at Hinotez this 2017. The decision happened because we 1) had no plan; 2) no one wanted Chinese food; and 3) Hinotez was open until a whopping 1am that holiday eve. I’ve been to Hinotez myself for lunch and thought the food was ok. Never tried… Read More Hinotez ( Christmas Eve dinner) – San Diego, CA

Larsen’s Steakhouse ($36 Prix Fixe lunch menu) – La Jolla, CA

It is so starting to feel like Christmas. Did you know tomorrow, 12/21, is the first day of winter. I didn’t until a few weeks ago. But you would never know it with the 75 degree weather we’re having here in our beautiful San Diego. My cold is starting to break – I feel fantastic… Read More Larsen’s Steakhouse ($36 Prix Fixe lunch menu) – La Jolla, CA
