Zel’s Del Mar

Sundays can be stressful for a variety of reasons. One consistent reason has always been breakfast. Friends and I always have the same question every Sunday around 10a. “WHATAWEDOING” for breakfast is the text I get every single time. Unbeknownst to me, they made an executive decision without my input, consent, yay or nay…well, you… Read More Zel’s Del Mar

Mendocino Farms ( Soft Opening & Yelp event ) – Del Mar, CA

It was a surprise to see Carnitas Snack Shack close its doors in Del Mar. There was so much hype and adoration for Carnitas Snack Shack that eventually died down. We even stopped visiting as the food was inconsistent and tasted, well, unhealthy. So, it was an even bigger surprise when signs for Mendocino Farms… Read More Mendocino Farms ( Soft Opening & Yelp event ) – Del Mar, CA

Pegah’s Kitchen – Escondido, CA

I was in Escondido to have my car serviced. It was an early morning and all I could think about was chicken fried steak. And country gravy. I discovered Pegah’s Kitchen on my Yelp app and decided to try the restaurant as they offered chicken fried steak with country gravy on their breakfast menu. Pegah’s… Read More Pegah’s Kitchen – Escondido, CA

Waypoint Public Del Sur

I’ve seen Waypoint Public at various events through out the years. They offered samples but none of which I can currently remember. Cdj visited their North Park location some weeks ago after watching fights at a nearby bar and swore he had one of his best dinners at Waypoint Public (then again, he’d probably give… Read More Waypoint Public Del Sur

C Level – San Diego, CA

I’m learning above and beyond is meant for special people in your life. You don’t offer that to someone who doesn’t feel the same. We recently celebrated V’s birthday. She loves the ocean. She’s the worst food critic for someone who rarely eats out. So I thought it only fitting to surprise her with lunch… Read More C Level – San Diego, CA

Thyme in the Ranch – Rancho Santa Fe, CA

I’ve been feeling quietly blessed the last few weeks. Those are the best blessings. My mind tends to race when I get nervous or when stress takes over. Often times I feel I’m sinking but then feel strong hands grabbing under my armpits to lift me back up. A good friend is getting married at… Read More Thyme in the Ranch – Rancho Santa Fe, CA

BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse – La Jolla, CA

My appetite the last few weeks has been a bit off. I haven’t been as hungry so discovering new places to eat hasn’t been a priority. Friends have been wanting to try out BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse so we finally had a chance to visit (twice) in the last week. BJ’s Restaurant is located in… Read More BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse – La Jolla, CA

The Clubhouse Grill @ Fairmont Grand Del Mar

I’m not into hotel restaurants as they’re usually fancy and expensive. Grand Del Mar has been known for it’s grandeur. I’ve had friends visit their fancy restaurant for special occasions and tell me how expensive things were. That was beyond my budget. A blogger friend told me the hotel has a coffee shop that’s affordable… Read More The Clubhouse Grill @ Fairmont Grand Del Mar

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

Claire’s on Cedros – Solana Beach, CA

My mom recently came to town via Amtrak. The train station is located in Solana Beach. Claire’s on Cedros is just two blocks down so we all met for breakfast recently. Claire’s on Cedros is known for their breakfast. I read lines can be extremely long on weekends. The friendly girl I spoke to that… Read More Claire’s on Cedros – Solana Beach, CA
