Ken Sushi Workshop

My sister has mentioned several times to visit Ken Sushi Workshop for a dinner date. She and Peanut enjoy this restaurant for special sushi dinner nights with their husbands. This unassuming restaurant is located in a business park with California Bank & Trust. One of the chefs used to work for the infamous Sushi Ota… Read More Ken Sushi Workshop

Tasting Room Del Mar

I’ve been looking for an opportunity to try out the Tasting Room Del Mar. I believe they only have evening hours so it was difficult finding the time to try out this tiny outdoor/indoor restaurant in downtown Del Mar. So it was fitting when someone suggested trying out Tasting Room Del Mar for a first… Read More Tasting Room Del Mar

Pokewan – Del Mar, CA

Pokewan recently opened in the Del Mar Highlands shopping center. The poke shop is located on the bottom level next to the yogurt store and Pappalecco (which does anyone else read/enunciate as Poppa Let Go). Pokewan has received decent reviews. The owners also have a stake in Love Boat Sushi. I visited one late afternoon… Read More Pokewan – Del Mar, CA

Boto Sushi Del Mar

We noticed Boto Sushi Del Mar had opened sometime ago in this revamped plaza. The restaurant is located towards the back of the plaza by Vons. There’s plenty of parking. We’ve visited twice in the past months for their lunch specials as well as a few other dishes.

The Clubhouse Grill @ Fairmont Grand Del Mar

I’m not into hotel restaurants as they’re usually fancy and expensive. Grand Del Mar has been known for it’s grandeur. I’ve had friends visit their fancy restaurant for special occasions and tell me how expensive things were. That was beyond my budget. A blogger friend told me the hotel has a coffee shop that’s affordable… Read More The Clubhouse Grill @ Fairmont Grand Del Mar

Pacifica Del Mar

My friends are my lifeline. Family is always there but my few close friends are the ones I depend on more on a daily basis. I’m lucky my friends like to eat. Actually, I’m lucky that I have friends who know *I* like to eat. I recently met up with a best friend to have… Read More Pacifica Del Mar

I cannot remember if I’ve ever visited but I vividly remember seeing Le Bambou Restaurant every time I visit this part of town. The restaurant is tucked away in a… Read More Le Bambou Restaurant – Del Mar, CA

Bushfire Kitchen – Del Mar, CA

It was exciting to see Bushfire Kitchen open a location in Del Mar. I’ve visited their Carlsbad location ages ago and had heard about their new location. The construction seemed to take longer than expected but this Bushfire location is modern and quite pretty. They’re located off the 5 freeway and there was plenty of… Read More Bushfire Kitchen – Del Mar, CA

Sbicca – Del Mar, CA

I visited Sbicca years ago for a friend’s girls-only wedding shower. I thought the food and views were ok but nothing memorable.  Recently, friend and I originally made lunch reservations for Poseidon but that quickly went to heck when we saw the disastrous parking situation by the beach. So we stumbled across Sbicca – well, more like… Read More Sbicca – Del Mar, CA

Snooze an A.M. Eatery – Del Mar, CA

Does life get so busy that you forget to write about a breakfast place. Or maybe the food wasn’t that great and your blog’s subconscious doesn’t want to put in the effort. Can a blog even have a conscience. Or maybe there was meaning behind the meal that wasn’t worth sharing about at the time… Read More Snooze an A.M. Eatery – Del Mar, CA
