Patron Meat Market & Deli – San Marcos, CA

I’ve been having a lot of meetings recently. Meetings tend to go better when there’s food available. I was in San Marcos and decided to visit Patron Meat Market & Deli. Someone told me this market has a hot deli section and makes huge burritos at an affordable price.

Red O – La Jolla, CA

Above and Beyond. That has been in my head for the past couple weeks. It’s what I do when I care about someone. Cdj’s birthday was last week and I wanted to surprise him. I had a few surprises but the primary was dinner. Red O Taste of Mexico recently opened in La Jolla. The… Read More Red O – La Jolla, CA

Mexican

Don Pollo – Poway, CA

I’m glad I’m not the only person sick during this season. Not that I wish coughs and sniffles on friends but…it’s nice to have someone who shares the same miseries. That’s not grinch-y is it. Chicken soup has been known to help get over a bad cold. Not sure the science behind it but I… Read More Don Pollo – Poway, CA

Miguel’s Cocina – 4S Ranch

This has been a nice holiday season. I’m still fighting a cough but other than that I’m feeling quite good. And spirited. I can almost feel the light at the end of the tunnel. Friend and I met up at Miguel’s Cocina a few weeks ago for a leisurely lunch. Miguel’s Cocina has a few… Read More Miguel’s Cocina – 4S Ranch

Mexican

Hacienda de Vega – Escondido, CA

Hacienda de Vega is located in Escondido. I had heard about this Mexican restaurant from a friend who enjoys the margaritas here. It was a blistering hot day and there’s no indoor seating at Hacienda de Vega. Friend said it’s no biggie as the outdoor patio seating had a nice breeze and I’d be fine.… Read More Hacienda de Vega – Escondido, CA

Las Brisas Restaurant (OMG ocean views) – Laguna Beach, CA

LAS BRISAS RESTAURANT My last two nights in Taipei were filled to the brim with family time. That’s all that seemed to matter. Saying goodbye to them on the final day brought uncontrollable tears (on my part) and the question, from my grandma, when will you come back? My mom took the same flight as… Read More Las Brisas Restaurant (OMG ocean views) – Laguna Beach, CA

Mexican

Jorge’s Mexicatessen – Encinitas, CA

When I crave something, I CRAVE it. Like, bad. It’s more important than work, my friends, my mental health. Someone taught me how to make chicken soup some many years ago and I still think that recipe is awesome. But I haven’t found a place in San Diego that makes memorable chicken soup. So cue… Read More Jorge’s Mexicatessen – Encinitas, CA

Mexican

Galaxy Taco – La Jolla, CA

I don’t think I can convey how happy a rainy day makes me feel. It’s even harder to express that happiness when that rainy day falls on a weekday that I have free for lunch. I hadn’t heard much about Galaxy Taco in La Jolla but was game for trying them out since their menu… Read More Galaxy Taco – La Jolla, CA

Mexican

Lucha Libre (North Park)

Lucha Libre opened a sister location in North Park some time ago. I’ve been visiting North Park more often and have passed by their new location several times. There’s no parking and signage for this location is quite minimal. I rarely crave Mexican food but one thing that I absolutely crave is Lucha Libre’s thick… Read More Lucha Libre (North Park)

El Agave (Old Town)

Out of town friends constantly remind me that San Diego is the most beautiful city in the world. I’ve visited Old Town more often in the last year than I have since I’ve resided in San Diego. I was surprised by the quality and variety of Mexican restaurants I’ve tried on those visits. I’ve always… Read More El Agave (Old Town)
