Supermarkets

99 Ranch Market – (2nd San Diego location)

Can anyone else relate to the following observation. Asians call this supermarket 99 Ranch. Non-Asians call it Ranch 99. It’s just what I’ve personally noticed in my circle of friends. I was excited when I heard 99 Ranch Market opening a new location just a few miles from their original San Diego location. I actually… Read More 99 Ranch Market – (2nd San Diego location)

Hot Pot

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

Korean

356 BBQ & Bar ($25.99 AYCE) – San Diego, CA

We don’t venture outside of Convoy for AYCE Korean BBQ often. I was surprised and curious when a new Korean BBQ restaurant opened in Mission Valley. The restaurant was brand new, modern, and not AYCE. I should have written ‘but not AYCE’ because Cdj about fainted when he saw the prices here at 356 BBQ… Read More 356 BBQ & Bar ($25.99 AYCE) – San Diego, CA

American

Brothers Provisions – Rancho Bernardo, CA

The last few weeks have been just draining. Everything seemed to hit me at once and I still shake my head thinking about it. I’d like to think I was supergirl and took care of business the way a grown ass woman should do but no. That’s what friends and family are for. They’ve had… Read More Brothers Provisions – Rancho Bernardo, CA

AYCE, Korean

Roadem BBQ ($9.99 AYCE Lunch Special)

My friends and I always complain how there’s no affordable all you can eat Korean BBQs for lunch here in San Diego. We’ve paid the full dinner AYCE price at many places but never felt we ate enough, for lunch, to warrant the $22+ dollars. So I was curious when I kept seeing Roadem BBQ… Read More Roadem BBQ ($9.99 AYCE Lunch Special)

BANH MI, Vietnamese

Baguette Bros – San Diego, CA

I saw Baguette Bros some weeks ago when they newly opened. I was curious about this French banh mi shop but my banh mi obsession (remember all the posts from last year) had strangely subsided. I was recently back in this plaza and Cdj felt like something non-spicy/Chinese/chicken feet/insert anything Asian here. He’s aware the… Read More Baguette Bros – San Diego, CA

American

High Dive Bar and Grill (Ballast Point Tap Takeover)

I’m always looking for the cool, dungy dive bar that I can walk into and just feel like I’m one of the ‘regulars’. I’m not exactly known to be a dive bar-y kinda gal (the decor clashes with my J Crew outfit – just kidding) but I do love me some good ol’ greasy bar… Read More High Dive Bar and Grill (Ballast Point Tap Takeover)

American

Ironside Fish & Oyster

It bums me out that I don’t venture to Little Italy more often. It’s a upbeat part of town that houses some pretty incredible restaurants and handsome chefs (helllllo Richard Blais). I’ve read quite a bit about Ironside Fish & Oyster so I was excited when I went on a dinner date there for my… Read More Ironside Fish & Oyster

Asian, Taiwanese

TASTY NOODLE HOUSE – SAN DIEGO, CA

Sis and I saw the sign for Tasty Noodle House some weeks ago when we were in Convoy for lunch. We knew Yu’s Garden had closed but had no idea what type of cuisine Tasty Noodle House served. We promised one another our first visit here would be together but I totally couldn’t wait so… Read More TASTY NOODLE HOUSE – SAN DIEGO, CA

San Diego Restaurant Week recently threw a Launch Party showcasing their September “Celebrate Local” theme. The event would take place at Go Green Agriculture located in Encinitas. I was excited upon hearing that 20 food vendors would be participating in this launch as what better way to sample all the various dishes you can try… Read More San Diego Restaurant Week Launch Party 2015
