Mama Cinia Rice & Noodles – Mira Mesa, CA

I’ve been missing my friend Peanut. It’s been fun catching up with her via texts/phone calls. She’s now a busy mama to a beautiful girl but that doesn’t mean the two of us ever stopped gossiping or talking smack. She’s my ride or die girlfriend and someone who is fiercely loyal. She also introduced me… Read More Mama Cinia Rice & Noodles – Mira Mesa, CA

Dim Sum

Fung Fung Yuen (midweek Dim Sum) – Mira Mesa, CA

There’s been so much anticipation waiting for Fung Fung Yuen to open in Mira Mesa. They took over the now defunct Hometown Buffet building sometime ago. Fung Fung Yuen serves dim sum and then some (sorry, had to type that). People must lose their minds about dim sum because Fung Fung Yuen has been receiving… Read More Fung Fung Yuen (midweek Dim Sum) – Mira Mesa, CA

BAKLAVA

Baklavalicious – San Diego, CA

Getting a box of gourmet baklava will always make a girl’s day. What is about beautiful looking, two bite desserts, that gets me giddy and romantic. You will always eat with your eyes first and that will happen when you see the baklavas from Baklavalicious. Baklavalicious is located here in San Diego and has a… Read More Baklavalicious – San Diego, CA

BAGELS

New York Bagels & Cafe – Rancho Bernardo, CA

The last week or so has been packed full of activities. My grandma has been staying with me so life has been simple and accountable. She’s still incredibly humble but there’s a feistiness to her that we all love. Friend recently met grams and said grams exudes a special unspoken kindness. I haven’t used Groupon… Read More New York Bagels & Cafe – Rancho Bernardo, CA

Hawaiian

Duke’s La Jolla

I’ve been waiting for Duke’s La Jolla to open. It seemed to take forever for them to remodel/rebuil this location. I had visited once but only did a walk thru. A date night would have been fun here that night but we ended up at a brewery down the street instead. The weather has been… Read More Duke’s La Jolla

YELP EVENTS

Cinepolis ( Yelp Event – dinner & a movie )- Del Mar, CA

This is an over due post about this Yelp event some weeks ago. Cinepolis recently remodeled and teamed with Yelp to host an event that featured menu items as well as a movie. I met my friend Diana at the event and we were both excited to watch the fantastically horrible girls movie Rough Night.

Italian

Stella Italianfare UTC

I’m used to being made fun of by my friends. I’m an easy target. A sitting duck. So friend suggested to try out Stella Italianfare UTC because, you know, Stella got her groove back. ~snicker~ ~snicker~ I don’t understand the snicker. Kidding aside, we decided to try Stella Italianfare UTC one afternoon. This Italian restaurant… Read More Stella Italianfare UTC

Asian

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

Pizza

Fresh Brothers – San Diego, CA

Carbs. What more can I say. It’s a girl’s best friend. I’ve been on a weird pizza craze lately. Not even sure why. I’m not much of a crust person. I’m even more not a deep dish crust kinda person. I went to a Yelp spin event and they gave us a coupon for a… Read More Fresh Brothers – San Diego, CA
