Seafood, SEAFOOD BOIL

Crab Town – San Diego, CA

My world revolves around food. It truly does. I’ve always said food brings people together. A meal can mend, heal, celebrate whatever you’re going through. I’m on a crazy Louisiana seafood boil craze at the moment and I’m lucky to have amazing friends who help me feed my current food frenzy. I hadn’t heard much… Read More Crab Town – San Diego, CA

Karina’s Mexican Seafood

I was invited to try out Karina’s Mexican Seafood and was pretty excited as this seafood restaurant has been on my bucket list for years.

The Buffet @ Valley View ( Free AYCE lobster buffet for 1st timers) – San Diego, CA

Merry Christmas 2013 !

It’s been a lazy Christmas morning for me and I don’t think I would have it any other way. This week blew by so quickly that it’s hard to believe that TODAY is actually Christmas.

Puck’s Tavern ( Test Dinner ) – Anaheim (Honda Center), CA

My earliest memories of Wolfgang Puck was in college. One of the University’s dining areas had Wolfgang’s pizza and salads. I remember the food being really expensive AND their Chinois chicken salad being really spicy (wasabi-spicy). My college buddies and I used to joke that we would make a special trip to Cut (Puck’s famous… Read More Puck’s Tavern ( Test Dinner ) – Anaheim (Honda Center), CA
