Post Thanksgiving eats (& activities) – San Diego, CA

This was the first Thanksgiving I think we’ve ever had that had NO Asian food. Like zero, zilch, none. And the turkey wasn’t just a centerpiece for everyone to look at and pass over for fried rice, noodles, or roast duck. – Prime rib I usually cook this medium+ because of the family’s kids, etc.… Read More Post Thanksgiving eats (& activities) – San Diego, CA

Happy Thanksgiving 2013 (+ my Orphans)

Happy Thanksgiving ! 2013… Mom and youngest sis came down last night to spend Thanksgiving with me. I bought most of everything last night from Albertson’s and Ralph’s. I’m excited about this Thanksgiving actually. Usually I spend it with my cousins and their family. But this year, I’m having it at my house. Every year,… Read More Happy Thanksgiving 2013 (+ my Orphans)

Japanese, Lunch, teppanyaki

Benihana (Lunch – don’t laugh!) – City of Industry, CA

Go ahead and laugh. I know you want to. When was the last time anyone (over 21+) has gone to Benihana. And for LUNCH. Well folks, that would be me and my friend MK (my guy friends nicknamed her Munchkin b/c she’s cute and they all have a mad crush on her). I was going… Read More Benihana (Lunch – don’t laugh!) – City of Industry, CA

Herringbone ( Olive trees + Fireplace) – La Jolla, CA

HERRINGBONE – LA JOLLA, CA It just occurred to me that this is another Brian Malarkey restaurant (I just posted about Searsucker Del Mar which is also a Malarkey owned restaurant). I’ve wanted to try Herringbone for some time now. I went there with my friend Peanut some months ago for drinks. The ambiance that… Read More Herringbone ( Olive trees + Fireplace) – La Jolla, CA

American, Happy Hour

Searsucker ( Happy Hour!!) – Del Mar, CA

So two of my close friends and I were *finally* able to get together Monday night to catch up. It felt like ages since we all had the opportunity to be together. Toxie and Snooks (nicknames we agreed on that night) suggested Searsucker in Del Mar. It used to be Burlap some months back but… Read More Searsucker ( Happy Hour!!) – Del Mar, CA

Sandwiches

Wich Addiction – San Diego (Mira Mesa, CA)

I visited Wich Addiction in Mira Mesa with Mary and CC some months ago to try out their sandwiches. I had heard great things about this place and was happy to have an opportunity to check it out. It’s located in Mira Mesa (literally in the middle of MM so it doesn’t matter if you… Read More Wich Addiction – San Diego (Mira Mesa, CA)

BBQ, Brazilian

Fogo de Chao ( Yelp event + Saturday ramblings) – San Diego (Gaslamp), CA

Sin of gluttony. Those words gave me shivers every time I heard them in church growing up. Well…I inadvertently sinned last Saturday at Fogo de Chao… And it was sooooo good (the FOOD, not the actually sinning…right?). Yelp recently partnered with the newly open Fogo de Chao of San Diego to host a luncheon for… Read More Fogo de Chao ( Yelp event + Saturday ramblings) – San Diego (Gaslamp), CA

Luna Grill (Shhhhh! – Kids eat FREE Tuesday) – San Diego, CA

Not sure if it’s really a Shhhhh! thing but I don’t see this anywhere on their website and we personally think it’s an AMAZING deal.┬áSis has two beautiful little boys (and nooo, I’m not biased) and is a bit compulsive with her/their eating routines (I’m not sure where she gets that from). But she told… Read More Luna Grill (Shhhhh! – Kids eat FREE Tuesday) – San Diego, CA

Kang Kang Food Court ( Shengjian Bao + cheap Chinese food FAIL) – Alhambra, CA

As I mentioned in my last post, I had to come up to LA last minute to help family with a few things. It was a bit last minute and I tried to come up Saturday night but was too tired. So first thing early Sunday morning, I jumped in car with dogs and drove… Read More Kang Kang Food Court ( Shengjian Bao + cheap Chinese food FAIL) – Alhambra, CA

Burgers

Eureka! (UTC mall) – La Jolla, CA

I didn’t put the (!) at the end of Eureka because I was blown away by this place FYI… That’s how their name is listed on their website and in their restaurants – which is a bit odd to me. Feels like they’re shouting. I met friend at the UTC mall last Sunday evening to… Read More Eureka! (UTC mall) – La Jolla, CA
