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


Crust Pizzeria – Torrey Hills, CA

I don’t visit this part of town often but recently discovered Crust Pizzeria in a Torrey Hills strip mall. They make their pizza dough and pizza sauces fresh daily. They also import their 100% fresh mozzarella from Wisconsin. The restaurant also offers salads, sandwiches, and a few entrees. There’s also wine as well as draft… Read More Crust Pizzeria – Torrey Hills, CA


Elbow Room (Weekend Happy Hour) – San Diego, CA

Football has been harder to watch this season because, well, the Chargers suck. More so that they can’t keep a lead and blow the 4th quarter. It’s a miracle they’ve won the last two games but I probably jinxed it right there by typing that. It’s tough finding a restaurant/bar that offers some sort of… Read More Elbow Room (Weekend Happy Hour) – San Diego, CA


Tidewater Tavern – Solana Beach, CA

How have I never been to Tidewater Tavern in Solana Beach. And how did Cdj find this place before me. The conundrums I face in my daily life. Cdj usually texts me during Sunday service to 1) pay attention to service; 2) stop checking football stats on; 3) where are we eating after I’m… Read More Tidewater Tavern – Solana Beach, CA


777 Noodle House

I don’t visit City Heights often but knew there were some reputable restaurants in this area. Reputable not meaning Michelin three stars but more yelp stars if you know what I mean. I was in the area some weeks ago on a Friday for a funeral. It was strangely a warming way to start the 4th… Read More 777 Noodle House

Seaside Buffet ( $19.88 AYCE weekend lunch) – Miramar, CA

I’d like to think I’m going through a transformation of some sort. Sports used to be such a big part of my life and I’m determined to get back into it. Friends have helped me greatly with this (they know the bone this dog needs to have in order to get fixated again). I’ll share… Read More Seaside Buffet ( $19.88 AYCE weekend lunch) – Miramar, CA


Westroot Tavern (Carmel Valley, CA)

A bunch of us were waiting patiently for the opening of Westroot Tavern. We only recently noticed their restaurant signs go up and final completion of their outdoor patio. So I was excited when one of my best friends said she was free one afternoon to meet for lunch to finally try out Westroot Tavern.… Read More Westroot Tavern (Carmel Valley, CA)


Char House: Saigon Grill and Pho – San Diego, CA

Friends think I should rent a condo in Convoy as I’m in that area at least two times a week. To eat. Like, seriously. For food. I’ve seen signs for Char House over the last few months and was curious to see what this new Vietnamese restaurant had to offer. Note to self and to… Read More Char House: Saigon Grill and Pho – San Diego, CA


Crab Town – San Diego, CA

My world revolves around food. It truly does. I’ve always said food brings people together. A meal can mend, heal, celebrate whatever you’re going through. I’m on a crazy Louisiana seafood boil craze at the moment and I’m lucky to have amazing friends who help me feed my current food frenzy. I hadn’t heard much… Read More Crab Town – San Diego, CA


Streetcar Merchants (Chicken Wings galore)

I am a fuhhh-reak about chicken wings. Particularly deep fried chicken wings. And more particularly chicken wings that are WHOLE (drumette, wingette/flat, and tip – all joined together). I cannot remember the last time I had a whole chicken wing that was deep fried. I mostly enjoy the wingette part, eat the skin of the… Read More Streetcar Merchants (Chicken Wings galore)
