Harvest International Market ( hot deli specials & fresh baklava too! )

I don’t frequent this part of town all that often unless I visit my cheap (albeit strong) Thai massage place. Or visit the super old Costco a few miles down. I’ve seen Harvest International Market over the years but thought it used to be a Mexican supermarket. I was surprised that it’s now, or has… Read More Harvest International Market ( hot deli specials & fresh baklava too! )

99 Ranch Market – (2nd San Diego location)

Can anyone else relate to the following observation. Asians call this supermarket 99 Ranch. Non-Asians call it Ranch 99. It’s just what I’ve personally noticed in my circle of friends. I was excited when I heard 99 Ranch Market opening a new location just a few miles from their original San Diego location. I actually… Read More 99 Ranch Market – (2nd San Diego location)

Cardiff Seaside Market

Yelp San Diego hosted an event two weeks ago at the Cinepolis in Vista. The revamped theater now has 4DX which is a new movie watching experience. Imagine seats that move, spray mist, tilt up/down. It was intense watching Guardians of the Galaxy in 4DX. Cdj and I decided to take the coast up to… Read More Cardiff Seaside Market

Lazy Acres Market (sister to Bristol Farms) – Encinitas

My heart melts when I see a new super market opening. I love the smell, sights, touch of these new markets. I had never heard of Lazy Acres Market. I didn’t know if it was a chain or perhaps a pricey organic kinda place (hello Whole Foods). So I was surprised to discover Lazy Acres… Read More Lazy Acres Market (sister to Bristol Farms) – Encinitas

H Mart (Fermented Skate Wing?!!) & Paris Cafe findings (+ Donkey Wine ramblings) – San Diego, CA

I honestly should have separated out these topics into multiple posts but hey, I’m tired and it’s hot as all frekkkkk today. I can’t even cuss right because I’m that miserable from the heat. I haven’t been going to H Mart as often. It’s still a cool market (actually they have A/C…crap, maybe I should… Read More H Mart (Fermented Skate Wing?!!) & Paris Cafe findings (+ Donkey Wine ramblings) – San Diego, CA

99 Ranch (Peculiar Findings) – San Diego, CA

I don’t know how anyone survived before 99 Ranch came to San Diego. It was a cool place to go b/c 1) so much Asian grocery inventory; 2) Sam Woo and 168 restaurant ; and  3) I never got tired of finding new things to ewwww and ahhhh at. But over the years, I stopped going… Read More 99 Ranch (Peculiar Findings) – San Diego, CA

Whole Foods – Del Mar, CA – Grand Opening – 2/27/2013

Anyone who grew up going to the Promenade (I still think of 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica for some reason) in Flower Hill (Del Mar) will be shocked when they visit the new Whole Foods. It used to be a movie theatre. An old, run down theatre. I remember going there to watch a… Read More Whole Foods – Del Mar, CA – Grand Opening – 2/27/2013
