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.

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)

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

Village North – San Diego, CA

I’ve been wanting to try Village North for months now. I even tried to plan a family dinner party there but no one at the restaurant ever picks up the phone. Cdj even drove by one night to see what’s up and he said the restaurant was completely empty and looked out of business. Thankfully… Read More Village North – San Diego, CA

Hive – San Diego (Convoy), CA

I  was surprised when I heard Hive San Diego opening in Convoy. The huge location took over the old Office Depot spot. The investors remodeled the space and made it into something quite downtown-ish. The parking that evening was tight as they share a small lot with a few neighbors which include a dance studio,… Read More Hive – San Diego (Convoy), CA

Hui An Garden – San Diego, CA

My uncle recently treated the family to dinner at Hui An Garden. The restaurant has been in a strange transition over the past few months. I heard a manager from Jasmine took over the restaurant when it was still Fu An Garden but that didn’t fare well. Then it was recently re branded Hui An… Read More Hui An Garden – San Diego, CA
