Shabu-Works (formerly Little Sheep) $17.99 AYCE Lunch Special

My sister recently visited Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot in Mira Mesa. She said the restaurant was adding a ‘buffet’ style station to this location. The set up (inside) was almost complete. Fast forward to today and the restaurant is now re branded as Shabu-Works. Shabu-Works is still owned by the founders of Little Sheep… Read More Shabu-Works (formerly Little Sheep) $17.99 AYCE Lunch Special

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)

Jasmine Express (Chicken Feet is expensive per Toe) – San Diego, CA

Quick post here as I’m still shaking my head about my penchant for math when it comes to food. I was in Convoy and had a coupon to burn at Kula (which has gone down hill BTW). I had a quick lunch at Kula but wanted to bring some dim sum back for a late… Read More Jasmine Express (Chicken Feet is expensive per Toe) – San Diego, CA

Mister Jiu’s – San Francisco, CA

I didn’t realize I was MIA from writing until recently. That is an utmost great sign that, well, I have a life. Seriously. My friends think: more posts = no life ; less posts = life. Kinda have to agree. I recently returned from San Francisco. It was a trip of a lifetime. I can’t… Read More Mister Jiu’s – San Francisco, CA

Golden Chopsticks Restaurant

V and I were going to be in National City so I researched restaurants for us to try for lunch. We always enjoy salt and pepper chicken wings so Soo suggested either Golden Chopsticks Restaurant or Royal Mandarin. Both had lunch specials but we opted for Golden Chopsticks Restaurant as it was a mile closer… Read More Golden Chopsticks Restaurant

Golden State Seafood Restaurant ( Family lunch feast + My Grandma ramblings ) – Mira Mesa, CA

My grandma has been in the States for a few months now and is getting ready to return to Taiwan soon. I’ll have to do a separate post about my adventures with her during this summer. She has kept me grounded and laughing. Plus, she thinks Lifu is a hoot (since her brother owns Lifu’s… Read More Golden State Seafood Restaurant ( Family lunch feast + My Grandma ramblings ) – Mira Mesa, CA

Del Mar Rendezvous (Appetizers & Lunch)

Del Mar Rendezvous has been in this part of town for quite some time. I don’t visit often as 1) their prices are high and 2) I don’t mind driving the extra distance to Convoy to satisfy my Asian food fix. Del Mar Rendezvous is located in the Del Mar Plaza. There are a few… Read More Del Mar Rendezvous (Appetizers & Lunch)

Dragon Style Buffet ($10.99 AYCE lunch) – Rancho Bernardo, CA

This post has been in the pipeline for quite some time. Dragon Style buffet is located in Rancho Bernardo. I visited when they were under a different name (Hibachi Buffet) but re visited several times after they rebranded to Dragon Style. They have an AYCE $10.99 lunch option that I liked. The variety and service… Read More Dragon Style Buffet ($10.99 AYCE lunch) – Rancho Bernardo, CA

Tasty Pot – Mira Mesa, CA

Friends and I all met for a quick lunch one afternoon. I was stressed from work and¬†needed a break. Tasty Pot recently opened in Mira Mesa. I’ve heard of their Convoy location but never wanted to try them out. I’m over the hot pot craze (for the time being). But we figured we give Tasty… Read More Tasty Pot – Mira Mesa, CA

Jasmine House – Alhambra, CA

My parents found a new restaurant in San Gabriel that they said was pretty good. “Pretty good” , when describing Asian food, shocks me when I hear my family describe a restaurant (as they’re the toughest food critics around). Jasmine House is located in Alhambra. They are fairly new and attract customers with their ¬†‘free’… Read More Jasmine House – Alhambra, CA
