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

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

Din Tai Fung (1088 S Baldwin Ave) – Arcadia, CA

I’ve always wanted this blog to be about food and how it brings people together. My family still amazes me, even today, when they bring that to life. My mom was leaving for Taiwan and wanted to treat us to ‘anywhere’ we wanted to eat. The ‘anywhere’ just had to be in Los Angeles. Dang… Read More Din Tai Fung (1088 S Baldwin Ave) – Arcadia, CA

TIM KY NOODLE

I have to admit that I get happy when I see a new(er) restaurant in Mira Mesa. I like eating in this part of town but feel that I’ve tried every single place. So new restaurant blood is much needed to this sometimes ravenous blogger. Tim Ky Noodle opened some time ago but I had… Read More TIM KY NOODLE

Dumpling Hut – San Diego, CA

Sis and I have had epic auto-correct fails. Case in point, I texted her that we’re at Dumping Hut for lunch. You’d think she’d find that amusing but no. She just takes it as another opportunity to laugh and shame me – all via text. I don’t think San Diego can ever, EVER, have enough… Read More Dumpling Hut – San Diego, CA
