Manila Fast Food & Desserts

My search for sisig continues. Or is it continued. I’m kinda over it now but that’s what happens to me. I overdo it. When I crave something. Every. Single. Time. I’d pass by Manila Fast Food & Desserts without much thought. I’m not sure why. They’re located in the same plaza as Boiling Crab and… Read More Manila Fast Food & Desserts

Mama Cinia Rice & Noodles – Mira Mesa, CA

I’ve been missing my friend Peanut. It’s been fun catching up with her via texts/phone calls. She’s now a busy mama to a beautiful girl but that doesn’t mean the two of us ever stopped gossiping or talking smack. She’s my ride or die girlfriend and someone who is fiercely loyal. She also introduced me… Read More Mama Cinia Rice & Noodles – Mira Mesa, CA

Fung Fung Yuen (midweek Dim Sum) – Mira Mesa, CA

There’s been so much anticipation waiting for Fung Fung Yuen to open in Mira Mesa. They took over the now defunct Hometown Buffet building sometime ago. Fung Fung Yuen serves dim sum and then some (sorry, had to type that).

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

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

I hope everyone had a fattening Thanksgiving Holiday. Taking a week off from blogging felt thankfully lazy. So I’m back ready to blog about an all you can eat (AYCE) Indian buffet in Mira Mesa.

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)
