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

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

The Marshall Store ( Best surprise trip ever! ) – Tomales Bay, CA

I just re read the title post and chuckled. What if people think this post is about me going to Marshalls (the department store). Joking aside, this is a belated post about my trip to San Francisco some weeks ago. I had the most memorable surprise day trip. Kat and Al had suggested either Napa… Read More The Marshall Store ( Best surprise trip ever! ) – Tomales Bay, CA

Americana Restaurant – Del Mar, CA

I just had the most whirlwind week of my life. I don’t know if I met the love of my life (being dramatic here) but I honestly had the best meet and greets (aka dates) with a special guy. It left me lovesick which I’ve never said on this blog. Hence why I’ve been MIA… Read More Americana Restaurant – Del Mar, CA

Mission Rock Resort : Oysters , Bar, Grill (with some great friends) – San Francisco, CA

I flew up to San Francisco for both work and relaxation. It’s not often that I get that opportunity so I was grateful when the timing (and, yawn) the stars aligned. I wasn’t expecting much from the trip as work was my first priority. But, sometimes, just SOMETIMES, you get to work with some pretty… Read More Mission Rock Resort : Oysters , Bar, Grill (with some great friends) – San Francisco, CA

Poseidon on the Beach – Del Mar, CA

This colder weather has made my spirit happy. There’s something, to this day, about this weather that puts me at ease. I wanted to catch up with a friend so we both thought it would be fun to have a late lunch at Poseidon on the Beach one sunny afternoon. Actually, it was a really… Read More Poseidon on the Beach – Del Mar, CA

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
