Urban Plates – La Jolla, CA

I visited Urban Plates over the weekend. I can’t even remember why I was in the area. Probably because I was too cheap this weekend to turn on the a/c so I was looking for places that had it blasting in their establishments. I have seen Urban Plates expand over the years. We were huge… Read More Urban Plates – La Jolla, CA

Red O – La Jolla, CA

Above and Beyond. That has been in my head for the past couple weeks. It’s what I do when I care about someone. Cdj’s birthday was last week and I wanted to surprise him. I had a few surprises but the primary was dinner. Red O Taste of Mexico recently opened in La Jolla. The… Read More Red O – La Jolla, CA

Roy’s Restaurant (Lunch) – La Jolla, CA

Sometime I shake my head in disbelief when schedules match and friends are available to meet up for lunch. Pair that with 1000 OpenTable points and you have yourself a win win deal. Roy’s Restaurant is located in the Costa Verde shopping center. They specialize in Hawaiian fusion cuisine and offer seafood, steaks, and sushi.… Read More Roy’s Restaurant (Lunch) – La Jolla, CA

The Grill at Torrey Pines

I have a fondness for Torrey Pines. My grandfather used to love the public golf course here. Growing up, he would tell me the time slots (to tee off) were difficult to obtain. The time slots he did get would be early mornings. He was excited when sis and I obtained our driver license(s) so… Read More The Grill at Torrey Pines

Barbarella (Brunch) – La Jolla, CA

Happy Good Friday 2017 everyone. Easter is upon us and I’m looking forward to quietly celebrating with family. What’s the most important meal during this time though. You know the answer. Starts with a B and ends with an H. I think I have friends who would guess the wrong answer. Kidding aside, brunch is… Read More Barbarella (Brunch) – La Jolla, CA

Barbarella Restaurant & Bar

San Diego never ceases to amaze me. I’ve lived in this beautiful city most of my life but there are restaurants/places/sites I still have yet to discover. I’ve visited La Jolla Shores many a times be it with friends, on a first date, for a run on the beach. I have seen Barbarella Restaurant &… Read More Barbarella Restaurant & Bar

Sandwiches

Mendocino Farms – La Jolla, CA

It’s been fascinating to see La Jolla Village transform over the years. The shopping strip/mall was old but I never really cared as I had fond memories of spending time in this area with friends when I was younger. The revamping of this mall has been major with big players moving in (Nordstrom Rack, BJ’s… Read More Mendocino Farms – La Jolla, CA

Seafood

El Pescador Fish Market & Restaurant

I visited El Pescador Fish Market & Restaurant when they were located in a tiny location in La Jolla. The restaurant was cramped, parking was tough, and the visit always seemed stressful. I heard they relocated just across the street so I figured it was time to visit El Pescador and see what seafood they… Read More El Pescador Fish Market & Restaurant

StreetCar Merchants of Fried Chicken, Doughnuts & Coffee – La Jolla, CA

I was browsing Yelp when I gasped at what I was seeing on the screen before me. StreetCar Merchants was open in LA JOLLA ? Say what. I’ve been craving fried chicken lately so the new opening of StreetCar got me excited. They took over a previous restaurant building next to the Inn and re modeled… Read More StreetCar Merchants of Fried Chicken, Doughnuts & Coffee – La Jolla, CA

Shore Rider – La Jolla, CA

I’m sunburned. Like, super super super bad. I spent almost an entire day hiking and sunning at Torrey Pines state beach (which friends say is as shocking as re joining Facebook). Joking aside, I’m learning to make the most of our beautiful San Diego which includes doing outdoor-sy stuff. Shore Rider recently opened in the… Read More Shore Rider – La Jolla, CA
