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

Fogo de Chao ( New Gaucho Lunch $15 AYCE Market Market Table & Feijoada Bar)

I’ve visited Fogo de Chao way more times than I’d like to remember. I was there with family just last Mother’s Day for lunch. Service was great but I think I just over-meated out. The salad bar didn’t seem as phenomenal and the plethora of people at the salad bar made it difficult to enjoy.… Read More Fogo de Chao ( New Gaucho Lunch $15 AYCE Market Market Table & Feijoada Bar)

Seaside Buffet ( $19.88 AYCE weekend lunch) – Miramar, CA

I’d like to think I’m going through a transformation of some sort. Sports used to be such a big part of my life and I’m determined to get back into it. Friends have helped me greatly with this (they know the bone this dog needs to have in order to get fixated again). I’ll share… Read More Seaside Buffet ( $19.88 AYCE weekend lunch) – Miramar, CA

Roadem BBQ ($9.99 AYCE Lunch Special)

My friends and I always complain how there’s no affordable all you can eat Korean BBQs for lunch here in San Diego. We’ve paid the full dinner AYCE price at many places but never felt we ate enough, for lunch, to warrant the $22+ dollars. So I was curious when I kept seeing Roadem BBQ… Read More Roadem BBQ ($9.99 AYCE Lunch Special)

Souplantation (Eat with the Farmers Event)

I receivedĀ an invite to Souplantation’s Eat with the Farmers Event in Carmel Valley a few weeks ago. I’ve been to this Carmel Valley location many times and actually liked the location even more after they remodeled (but I was depressed they took out the chicken in my beloved Chinese Chicken Salad, boo). This event intrigued… Read More Souplantation (Eat with the Farmers Event)

Best Taste of China AYCE $16.99 Hotpot – San Diego (Mira Mesa), CA

Mom and sis were in town last week. They felt bad that they made me go to Pala Casino the night before to try out the casino’s buffet. So to make up for it, they let me choose a place to eat for dinner the next day. I honestly didn’t eat the entire next day… Read More Best Taste of China AYCE $16.99 Hotpot – San Diego (Mira Mesa), CA

Le Fountainbleu ( Sunday Champagne Brunch @ The Westgate Hotel) – San Diego,

Le Fountainbleu One of the most memorable things a friend once told me was that being a friend (in his circle) meant that I was in their ‘flock’. That the way a shepherd takes care of their sheep, his friends take care of each other. I thought that was one of the coolest things I’ve… Read More Le Fountainbleu ( Sunday Champagne Brunch @ The Westgate Hotel) – San Diego,

The Buffet @ Valley View ( Free AYCE lobster buffet for 1st timers) – San Diego, CA

The Buffet ( Just a precursor : This is a long post with LOTS of photos about the buffet. FYI… ) I don’t introduce random people to my family. It takes awhile for me to even introduce friends to them. It’s just that my family isn’t the warmest or most social of beings if that… Read More The Buffet @ Valley View ( Free AYCE lobster buffet for 1st timers) – San Diego, CA

Bellefleur ( Endless “Hold the OJ” Mimosa Sunday Brunch ) – Carlsbad, CA

Carlsbad isn’t a part of town I visit all that often. It just seems like a far drive for some reason and I haven’t been a fan of that outlet mall for some time now. NY and CDJ wanted to get together recently. It had been a while since all three of us had met… Read More Bellefleur ( Endless “Hold the OJ” Mimosa Sunday Brunch ) – Carlsbad, CA

Pranzo at Vivace ($45/pp Brunch @ Park Hyatt Aviara Resort) – Carlsbad, CA

I’ve wanted to visit this brunch place for ages now. It isn’t the typical Sunday brunch buffet where you have all these different stations you can go to for food. Instead, here at Pranzo, while the variety of stations are available, you are given the opportunity to order one entree (per person) to partake during… Read More Pranzo at Vivace ($45/pp Brunch @ Park Hyatt Aviara Resort) – Carlsbad, CA
