39 Hour Visit to San Diego (Part II)

It’s crazy to think how fast 39 hours flies when you’re spending that time with friends. 39 hours is not enough time to annoy one another BUT it’s *just* enough time to ride each others’ ass** about dumb stuff. You can have a thick, or thin, skin in this group but it’s preferred you don’t take… Read More 39 Hour Visit to San Diego (Part II)

TASTING EVENTS

Lemon Zest & Garlic Fest – San Diego, CA

San Diego’s first ever Lemon Zest & Garlic Fest recently held it’s event at The Waterfront in San Diego.

Chinese

Dumpling Hut – San Diego, CA

Sis and I have had epic auto-correct fails. Case in point, I texted her that we’re at Dumping Hut for lunch. You’d think she’d find that amusing but no. She just takes it as another opportunity to laugh and shame me – all via text. I don’t think San Diego can ever, EVER, have enough… Read More Dumpling Hut – San Diego, CA

INTERNATIONAL PAELLA & WINE FESTIVAL – SAN DIEGO, CA

San Diego hosted her first ever International Paella & Wine Festival at the Embarcadero Marina Park South over the weekend.

Bacon

Bacon and Barrels 2015 – San Diego, CA

I couldn’t believe it when I got a media invite to Bacon and Barrels 2015. It was an event that I’d been wanting to try but never got around to in the past. So the invite felt like raindrop on roses and whiskers on kittens (please tell me you know where that came from). The… Read More Bacon and Barrels 2015 – San Diego, CA

Korean

Jeong Won Korean BBQ Buffet ($21.95 AYCE)- San Diego, CA

Jeong Won Korean BBQ Buffet This place is my go-to AYCE Korean BBQ here in San Diego. I believe they are the only KBBQ, here in San Diego, that offers ‘serve yourself’ meats/vegetables/banchan. I, personally, prefer that as it gives you a wealth of variety to choose from. Besides, I like LOOKING at what I can… Read More Jeong Won Korean BBQ Buffet ($21.95 AYCE)- San Diego, CA

Baja, Mexican

SEA180 Coastal Tavern (Yelp Event)

I first heard about SEA180 Coastal Tavern from Reader Ben a few months back. I’m not familiar with Imperial Beach nor am I someone to drive the extra distance to try out Baja Mediterranean food. So it was nice when Yelp partnered with SEA180 Coastal Tavern to host an event. At these events, my two… Read More SEA180 Coastal Tavern (Yelp Event)
