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

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. She saw it many months ago when we were eating nearby when she, um, was searching for Pokemon characters (or whatever players search for). She came back and tried to google for information about the opening but nothing came up.… Read More Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot ($11.95 lunch special) – Mira Mesa

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

Mama Testa

I was smiling when I saw Mama Testa coming to Mira Mesa. I had seen the build out of their new location when I would visit this plaza. They were originally located in Hillcrest and garnered a fan base due to their appearance on an episode of Bobby Flay’s Throwdown some many years ago. I… Read More Mama Testa

IT’S RAW POKE SHOP – San Diego (Mira Mesa Farmers Market), CA

I was in Mira Mesa for lunch the other day and realized I’d be in the area for their Farmers Market. I was still hungry after lunch (something I call Beast Mode Eating when I’m in that hunger mood) so I figured I’d quickly visit Mira Mesa Farmers Market and grab an arepa, takoyaki, maybe… Read More IT’S RAW POKE SHOP – San Diego (Mira Mesa Farmers Market), CA

QT POT revisit (& Hot Stone Rice Pot)

I used to visit QT Pot all the time. The owners had gotten to know me quite well that they’d invite me to share a table with them when I was there eating alone. Then life got busy and QT Pot got pushed aside in the back of my mind for whatever reason. They now… Read More QT POT revisit (& Hot Stone Rice Pot)

TIM KY NOODLE

I have to admit that I get happy when I see a new(er) restaurant in Mira Mesa. I like eating in this part of town but feel that I’ve tried every single place. So new restaurant blood is much needed to this sometimes ravenous blogger. Tim Ky Noodle opened some time ago but I had… Read More TIM KY NOODLE

Cali Baguette Express – Mira Mesa, CA

I think I can officially say my banh mi binges are over. It was getting kinda scary in the beginning. I’m not saying I don’t still enjoy a banh mi sandwich – I’m just saying I think I’ve tuckered out on ’em (at least for the moment). I have seen and passed by Cali Baguette… Read More Cali Baguette Express – Mira Mesa, CA

Bale French Sandwiches – Mira Mesa

Anyone who knows me will blatantly reveal that I have a small case of OCD. When I get fixated on something, I. GET. FIXATED. There’s no talking me out of it. There’s no reasoning with me. So behold. My latest obsession…banh mi sandwiches. I know almost nothing about these Vietnamese sandwiches. My dad taught us… Read More Bale French Sandwiches – Mira Mesa
