Big Catch Seafood House ( $45 AYCE Sunday Brunch)

My holy trinity in life consists of all F’s: Faith, family, and food friends. I was determined to visit my family in LA on Christmas Day. My mom is in love with a new restaurant called Big Catch Seafood House in Alhambra. It’s not even an Asian restaurant. We visited Big Catch some weeks ago… Read More Big Catch Seafood House ( $45 AYCE Sunday Brunch)

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

R&B Crawfish Lounge

We often talk about the best restaurants to take a first date. I might have just found the place to take her (or him) if you 1) either like her/him alot or 2) want to see her/him patience threshold. More to come on that later. We noticed R&B Crawfish Lounge being built for some time… Read More R&B Crawfish Lounge

Wonderland Ocean Pub

I’m used to getting my ocean views when I visit La Jolla or Del Mar. But those views are kinda pricey when you’re enjoying them from a restaurant in those cities. I don’t visit Ocean Beach as often but was curious about Wonderland Ocean Pub as I heard their 2nd floor views of the ocean… Read More Wonderland Ocean Pub

Oceana Coastal Kitchen (Sunday Champagne Brunch)

I figured out the secret(s) to having a successful Sunday brunch: you must like the company that is sitting next to you; there must be some sort of classy liqueur; and there must be an abundant amount of fresh seafood. Oceana Coastal Kitchen was my answer to ‘Brunch, where’ve you been all my life?’. Their… Read More Oceana Coastal Kitchen (Sunday Champagne Brunch)

TRIFECTA TAVERN (BUCK A SHUCK OYSTERS & $6 Flight of 4 FRIDAYS) – DEL MAR

You either love or you either hate raw oysters. Our flock used to go to The Fish Market to get our fix of raw oysters. Inappropriate (often filthy) descriptions were used to describe what and how a raw oyster tasted like. But raw oysters, no matter how much you make fun of the taste/texture/etc, still… Read More TRIFECTA TAVERN (BUCK A SHUCK OYSTERS & $6 Flight of 4 FRIDAYS) – DEL MAR

Hello Betty Fish House (Beats, Boards, Bites, Brew Event)- Oceanside, CA

HELLO BETTY FISH HOUSE I would be lying if I said it’s not awesome to get invites from restaurants to come in and try whatever event or menu compliments of the house. Of course it’s awesome. But it was never the reason I started this food blog. Yes, I like going as an invited person… Read More Hello Betty Fish House (Beats, Boards, Bites, Brew Event)- Oceanside, CA

YAKITORI YAKYUDORI

Why can’t we have more Japanese skewer restaurants like Yakitori Yakyudori here in San Diego. My family likes this place so much. Even my impatient mom, who RARELY waits on any list for a restaurant, came here first one night to put her name on the wait list. We waited AN HOUR AND 20 MINUTES… Read More YAKITORI YAKYUDORI
