Boto Sushi Del Mar

We noticed Boto Sushi Del Mar had opened sometime ago in this revamped plaza. The restaurant is located towards the back of the plaza by Vons. There’s plenty of parking. We’ve visited twice in the past months for their lunch specials as well as a few other dishes.

Tasty Pot – Mira Mesa, CA

Friends and I all met for a quick lunch one afternoon. I was stressed from work and needed a break. Tasty Pot recently opened in Mira Mesa. I’ve heard of their Convoy location but never wanted to try them out. I’m over the hot pot craze (for the time being). But we figured we give Tasty… Read More Tasty Pot – Mira Mesa, CA

BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse – La Jolla, CA

My appetite the last few weeks has been a bit off. I haven’t been as hungry so discovering new places to eat hasn’t been a priority. Friends have been wanting to try out BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse so we finally had a chance to visit (twice) in the last week. BJ’s Restaurant is located in… Read More BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse – La Jolla, CA

Mr Fish & Chips – San Diego, CA

Don’t you ever wonder how certain cravings come about. My lunch cravings usually stems from something I was thinking about the night before. Or when I visit Yelp or fellow bloggers websites. Food pics – that’s another trigger for cravings. Mr Fish & Chips is located in Clairemont. Freshly battered deep fried fish is a… Read More Mr Fish & Chips – San Diego, CA

Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot ($11.95 lunch special) – Mira Mesa

My sister informed me about this new Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot in Mira Mesa.

Chun’s Seafood & Grill (formerly Chin’s Seafood & Grill)

Chin’s (not to be confused with Chun’s) Seafood & Grill used to be my go to place for lunch. I loved their Da Ru mein and Shanghai spareribs. The location was simple and convenient.

Calibanzo Hummus & Grill ($9.50 Lunch Specials)

Is it crazy that I don’t mind this dry heat weather. It hit 103 degrees yesterday where I live. My room alone was a record whooping 91.6 degrees. But it didn’t bother me as dry heat is so much easier to tolerate than drenching humidity heat that I had just experienced in Taiwan. I had… Read More Calibanzo Hummus & Grill ($9.50 Lunch Specials)
