Urban Plates – La Jolla, CA

I visited Urban Plates over the weekend. I can’t even remember why I was in the area. Probably because I was too cheap this weekend to turn on the a/c so I was looking for places that had it blasting in their establishments. I have seen Urban Plates expand over the years. We were huge… Read More Urban Plates – La Jolla, CA

Nicky Rottens Bar & Burger Joint – Coronado, CA

I don’t know what’s happening to this non country bumpkin food blogger. I don’t normally enjoy the outdoors, beach, fresh air. I prefer very much to relax on my sofa with Lifu, watching reality tv, when I have downtime. So I was blown away by a different part of Coronado when we visited Nicky Rottens… Read More Nicky Rottens Bar & Burger Joint – Coronado, CA

Pacifica Del Mar

My friends are my lifeline. Family is always there but my few close friends are the ones I depend on more on a daily basis. I’m lucky my friends like to eat. Actually, I’m lucky that I have friends who know *I* like to eat. I recently met up with a best friend to have… Read More Pacifica Del Mar

The Grill at Torrey Pines

I have a fondness for Torrey Pines. My grandfather used to love the public golf course here. Growing up, he would tell me the time slots (to tee off) were difficult to obtain. The time slots he did get would be early mornings. He was excited when sis and I obtained our driver license(s) so… Read More The Grill at Torrey Pines

California Tap Room

What is about freshly baked pretzels that makes a girl happy. I think it’s because I’ve watched my bread (carb) intake for so many years now. I’ve let me bread cravings take over every once in awhile and the other night was one of those ‘every once in a while’ kinda time. California Tap Room… Read More California Tap Room

The Hat – Murrieta, CA

I don’t often venture to Murrieta because, well, it’s Murrieta. Kidding aside, I’d only see the town on my drives to LA, Vegas, or Big Bear. Friend planned a getaway to Idyllwild (another place I’ve yet to visit) and he was super excited to drive by Murrieta. Why you ask. Because he’s a pastrami loving… Read More The Hat – Murrieta, CA

I was browsing Yelp when I gasped at what I was seeing on the screen before me. StreetCar Merchants was open in LA JOLLA ? Say what.
