Yu Spa (restaurant & fun date) – San Diego, CA

Funny things are happening. Not all things funny means all things happy/sad. I’m learning to embrace what’s currently in front of me and to say yes more often. As a surprise a few weeks ago, Cdj had his team design a new blog logo. It’s inspired me to share more stories that bring food and… Read More Yu Spa (restaurant & fun date) – San Diego, CA


Shan Xi Magic Kitchen ( no rice? + NYE dinner)

Happy New Year 2018! That’s the second time I’ve written 2018 this year. I had some meaningful end of the year thoughts I was going to post before the new year but was too busy eating to do so. Figures right. Annie from Jewskimo had told me about Shan Xi Magic Kitchen some time ago.… Read More Shan Xi Magic Kitchen ( no rice? + NYE dinner)

Dim Sum

Fung Fung Yuen (midweek Dim Sum) – Mira Mesa, CA

There’s been so much anticipation waiting for Fung Fung Yuen to open in Mira Mesa. They took over the now defunct Hometown Buffet building sometime ago. Fung Fung Yuen serves dim sum and then some (sorry, had to type that). People must lose their minds about dim sum because Fung Fung Yuen has been receiving… Read More Fung Fung Yuen (midweek Dim Sum) – Mira Mesa, CA


Village North – San Diego, CA

I’ve been wanting to try Village North for months now. I even tried to plan a family dinner party there but no one at the restaurant ever picks up the phone. Cdj even drove by one night to see what’s up and he said the restaurant was completely empty and looked out of business. Thankfully… Read More Village North – San Diego, CA


Great Wow – San Diego, CA

I’ve been on a blogging hiatus because food hasn’t been much on my mind. You won’t hear me ever say that again. Kidding aside, life has been catching up to me and I’ve been trying to get my un manicured hands to blog more. Great Wow restaurant opened some months ago. Sis didn’t want to… Read More Great Wow – San Diego, CA


Long Xing Ji (*GIANT* xiao long bao) – San Gabriel

I’ve been back a few weeks now from Taiwan. I didn’t crave Asian food for some time but finally missed some dumplings. My mom was in town and left her phone here so I decided to drive up to LA to return the phone (and have her treat me to dumplings galore). That’s what moms… Read More Long Xing Ji (*GIANT* xiao long bao) – San Gabriel


Dumpling Inn – Shanghai Saloon

I haven’t been to their new location since they took over the old Korean market. I visited the gutted site some time ago and couldn’t believe they were moving into this larger location. No one else seemed to believe me but Dumpling Inn did move. Plus, they added Shanghai Saloon to their brand. I’m not… Read More Dumpling Inn – Shanghai Saloon


Pacific Coast Grill

I think I visited Pacific Coast Grill when they were located some miles South in Solana Beach years ago. Sis has mentioned that the views and food in their Cardiff location is pretty good. Friend took his nephew and niece here some months ago and agreed with sis’ sentiments. We visited for Easter brunch last… Read More Pacific Coast Grill


Noble Chef – San Diego, CA

I think I know Convoy Street (and the area) pretty well so I wasn’t really quite sure why I hadn’t been to Noble Chef before. I’ve seen this restaurant but never paid much thought to it. So I was a bit taken aback when I glanced in to take a quick look. The first thing… Read More Noble Chef – San Diego, CA

Asian, Desserts

T-Pop Desserts & More

T-Pop Desserts & More is a small dessert shop located in Mira Mesa. They also serve various ramens, appetizers, and rice dishes. We visited some weeks ago as I had a Groupon deal to burn before the expiration date. The deal required that you order at least one non-dessert item from their menu. I’m not… Read More T-Pop Desserts & More
