Sandwiches

Rock N’ Jenny’s Italian Subs – Escondido, CA

How many sandwiches have I had over a lifetime. Quite a bit I’d like to think. My love of sandwiches has grown over the years as I punish myself over freshly baked bread while counting carbs. We were in Escondido over the weekend and wanted to find a quick/cheap sandwich place to try out before… Read More Rock N’ Jenny’s Italian Subs – Escondido, CA

Mexican

Hacienda de Vega – Escondido, CA

Hacienda de Vega is located in Escondido. I had heard about this Mexican restaurant from a friend who enjoys the margaritas here. It was a blistering hot day and there’s no indoor seating at Hacienda de Vega. Friend said it’s no biggie as the outdoor patio seating had a nice breeze and I’d be fine.… Read More Hacienda de Vega – Escondido, CA

Italian

Roma Market – Escondido, CA

What does a girl do when she’s having a bad day with not much of an appetite. She goes to an Italian market to use a gift certificate she previously bought for someone else. Then she orders like a cray cray with the facade of ‘oh yes I’m bringing this *second* sandwich back to my… Read More Roma Market – Escondido, CA

I’m a creature of habit so finding new breakfast locations to try out has been difficult for some reason. So I was curious when I heard about Suzy… Read More Suzy Q’s Diner

BREWERY

Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Escondido, CA

Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens Gosh that’s a long restaurant name ain’t it. Friends and I had time to meet for a long lunch so we decided to meet here at Stone Brewing as they’ve known my non-existent desire to try another brewery. But hey, if there’s a restaurant inside the brewery, then that’s… Read More Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Escondido, CA

American, Happy Hour

The Cheesecake Factory Happy Hour (+ Are you a man or a mouse ramblings) – Escondido, CA

The Cheesecake Factory I wouldn’t normally do a blog post about The Cheesecake Factory because it’s like, yawn, The Cheesecake Factory. Don’t get me wrong – they have ok food. But the long wait to get a table, the quickly churned out food, etc etc doesn’t seem appealing to even write about. But a weird ‘return… Read More The Cheesecake Factory Happy Hour (+ Are you a man or a mouse ramblings) – Escondido, CA

Vintana Wine + Dine – Escondido, CA

When I first heard about Vintana, I shook my head in question wondering ‘whyyyy on EARTH would ANYONE want to open a restaurant INSIDE a car dealership’. It made me question the all-so-powerful Cohn Restaurant conglomerate. I’ve never been a huge fan of their restaurants. Always felt their menus had a lot of hype but… Read More Vintana Wine + Dine – Escondido, CA
