Barbarella (Brunch) – La Jolla, CA

Happy Good Friday 2017 everyone. Easter is upon us and I’m looking forward to quietly celebrating with family. What’s the most important meal during this time though. You know the answer. Starts with a B and ends with an H. I think I have friends who would guess the wrong answer. Kidding aside, brunch is… Read More Barbarella (Brunch) – La Jolla, CA

Cow By Bear (Sunday Brunch pop up) – San Diego

I’m seeing someone who earnestly tries to find new food adventures for dates. I was surprised when he said he got into a brunch event at a pop up named Cow By Bear. I wasn’t sure if I heard him correctly but he repeated: “Cow (like MOOOOOO). By. Bear (like ROOOARRRR)”.  Ok. Real funny. His sense… Read More Cow By Bear (Sunday Brunch pop up) – San Diego

Big Catch Seafood House ( $45 AYCE Sunday Brunch)

My holy trinity in life consists of all F’s: Faith, family, and food friends. I was determined to visit my family in LA on Christmas Day.

I’ve been wanting to re visit the Karl Strauss Brunch for a few months now. My mom took me and Cdj in 2013 and we had an ok time.

The French Gourmet

Breakfast is a meal that I don’t look forward to as much as, say, lunch or dinner. I used to enjoy going to breakfast alone in the mornings to gather my thoughts before work. I stopped doing that some years ago. The French Gourmet has been around for years. I swear they sold their fruit… Read More The French Gourmet

Hash House A Go Go – San Diego, CA

There are certain food photos that instantly remind of cetain  friends and family.

I had… Read More Hash House A Go Go – San Diego, CA

Queenstown Public House (Little Italy)

A rain storm was coming to San Diego so we wanted to take advantage of the warm sunshine before the skies started to weep. It was  one of those lazy weekends where you sit on the couch, in your baggy pjs, wondering ‘self, where would you like to treat yourself to today’. I had read… Read More Queenstown Public House (Little Italy)
