Trade Winds Tavern – San Diego, CA

I was curious to see what Trade Winds Tavern was about. I had seen them slowly take over the previous location. I didn’t know much about Trade Winds Tavern except seeing the mural of the girl every time we passed by. I didn’t know if the tavern would be Asian themed in regards to decor,… Read More Trade Winds Tavern – San Diego, CA

Cusp Dining & Drinks (Happy Hour) – La Jolla, CA

I was meeting a friend and she suggested trying Cusp Dining & Drinks in La Jolla. I visited Cusp years ago and thought the view was fine but the food was meh. They offer happy hour Mon-Sun from 4pm-7pm. The restaurant is located on the 11th floor of Hotel La Jolla. There’s now only a… Read More Cusp Dining & Drinks (Happy Hour) – La Jolla, CA

Tostadas ( North Park )

Pretty food sometimes just makes my day. The pictures don’t have to be perfect or photoshopped. I’m talking about food pictures where vibrant colors makes you want to throw down your camera and start eating from visual food hunger. The beautifully prepared ceviche and tostadas here at Tostadas North Park were breath taking. I was… Read More Tostadas ( North Park )

Karina’s Mexican Seafood

I was invited to try out Karina’s Mexican Seafood and was pretty excited as this seafood restaurant has been on my bucket list for years. Karina’s Mexican Seafood has been notorious for two things : 1) beautiful servers and 2) ceviche. I was able to bring a plus 1 and called CDJ. When I asked… Read More Karina’s Mexican Seafood

Casa Sol y Mar – Del Mar, CA

I visited Casa Sol y Mar two years ago with Snooks and Toxie to try their Happy Hour. We all collectively thought the food was mediocre and the staff a bit rude. So there wasn’t ever an urge to return. But a group of friends recently wanted to get together for lunch and one of… Read More Casa Sol y Mar – Del Mar, CA

Hello Betty Fish House (Beats, Boards, Bites, Brew Event)- Oceanside, CA

HELLO BETTY FISH HOUSE I would be lying if I said it’s not awesome to get invites from restaurants to come in and try whatever event or menu compliments of the house. Of course it’s awesome. But it was never the reason I started this food blog. Yes, I like going as an invited person… Read More Hello Betty Fish House (Beats, Boards, Bites, Brew Event)- Oceanside, CA

Vallarta Supermarkets (Ceviches & Torta Cubana) – Escondido, CA

I was hosting a milestone birthday party for my dearest of friends Arrow recently. I wuv him because he’s a no BS kinda dude and he never answers my questions the way *I* want him to answer my questions. No matter how much I act like a brat, he simply shakes his head, laughs and… Read More Vallarta Supermarkets (Ceviches & Torta Cubana) – Escondido, CA

CRUSHED (BRUNCH & TAPAS)- PACIFIC BEACH

CRUSHED – PACIFIC BEACH I don’t frequent PB very often but we happened to be in the area last weekend. I was so praying for rain but we had the misfortune of having ample sunshine and pleasant breezes that day. Dang it San Diego, why can’t you keep raining.

DON RIOS (previously MXN previously Santanas) – Rancho Penasquitos

I grew up hearing about Santanas as everyone in school just loved their burritos so much. I never really ate there so it wasn’t a big deal to me when Santanas changed to MXN. I recently drove by MXN in Rancho Penasquitos and noticed a new sign that said Don Rios where MXN used to… Read More DON RIOS (previously MXN previously Santanas) – Rancho Penasquitos
