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


Handoo Korean BBQ ( AYCE Korean BBQ) – San Diego, CA

This cooler weather has been making me happy. It rained (at least in my neck of the woods) Sunday morning which made me cozy up on the sofa even more before I headed to church. The cooler weather also makes me hungry. I guess it’s the whatever-bear-that’s-supposed-to-be-hibernating-in-the-winter in me. Gosh, is it almost winter too?… Read More Handoo Korean BBQ ( AYCE Korean BBQ) – San Diego, CA


Manila Sunset Grille

Manila Sunset Grille has been in Mira Mesa for some time now. Their location went through a nice exterior renovation recently. I’m not sure how we ended up finally trying Manila Sunset Grille last year but it’s been my go to grilled skewers place since then. Each item is made to order so there’s usually a… Read More Manila Sunset Grille


Manna BBQ – Mira Mesa, CA

MANNA BBQ I was excited when I heard an all you can eat Korean buffet was coming to Mira Mesa. This type of gluttony is only reserved for the elite of the elite (I love you Joey Chestnut). Joking aside, this part of town needed new AYCE blood that they could sink their fangs into.… Read More Manna BBQ – Mira Mesa, CA



I don’t frequent Poway all that often but CDJ was in the area and we decided to meet for a quick lunch at Poway Sushi Lounge. My aunt and uncle took me here some years ago as they swore Poway Sushi Lounge makes dang good sushi. They also own Lifu’s spaz sister so that should… Read More POWAY SUSHI LOUNGE

KOGI BBQ With the sincerest apologies, Happy Belated New Years! Christmas blew by so quickly and New Years…well, how can it already be 2015. I don’t understand.

Korean, Tofu

D&C Tofu House – San Diego (Mira Mesa), CA

My quest for Korean Tofu continues in Mira Mesa. WTF is wrong with me. At least that’s what sis keeps telling me every time I suggest trying another tofu house. Plus, keep in mind these visits (to D&C Tofu House) were during the heat wave. I haven’t heard much about D&C Tofu House from other… Read More D&C Tofu House – San Diego (Mira Mesa), CA


Shozen & Manpo BBQ – San Diego (Mira Mesa), CA

Ok. Obviously, as you can see, I’ve been on a weird Korean tofu/BBQ kick for the past few weeks. I’ve been trying to keep it in the Mira Mesa part of town to keep it interesting. Shozen has been around for ages and my family used to go there for their grille-at-the-table BBQ. But as… Read More Shozen & Manpo BBQ – San Diego (Mira Mesa), CA


Do Re Mi – San Diego, CA

I haven’t had Korean food in ages and finally had the weirdest craving for spicy hot tofu soup. I was driving around Convoy and decided to stop by Do Re Mi to see if they were still open for lunch. Thankfully they were as my stomach wasn’t taking no for an answer. I used to… Read More Do Re Mi – San Diego, CA
