Mendocino Farms ( Soft Opening & Yelp event ) – Del Mar, CA

It was a surprise to see Carnitas Snack Shack close its doors in Del Mar. There was so much hype and adoration for Carnitas Snack Shack that eventually died down. We even stopped visiting as the food was inconsistent and tasted, well, unhealthy. So, it was an even bigger surprise when signs for Mendocino Farms… Read More Mendocino Farms ( Soft Opening & Yelp event ) – Del Mar, CA


Board & Brew – Del Sur

Sis and kids wanted to do lunch so I suggested Board & Brew that opened in Del Sur. They have never tried this sandwich shop so were curious about their items. The location has their signature outdoor patio and craft beers on tap. They share a parking lot with Target and Starbucks.


Rock N’ Jenny’s Italian Subs – Escondido, CA

How many sandwiches have I had over a lifetime. Quite a bit I’d like to think. My love of sandwiches has grown over the years as I punish myself over freshly baked bread while counting carbs. We were in Escondido over the weekend and wanted to find a quick/cheap sandwich place to try out before… Read More Rock N’ Jenny’s Italian Subs – Escondido, CA


Roma Market – Escondido, CA

What does a girl do when she’s having a bad day with not much of an appetite. She goes to an Italian market to use a gift certificate she previously bought for someone else. Then she orders like a cray cray with the facade of ‘oh yes I’m bringing this *second* sandwich back to my… Read More Roma Market – Escondido, CA


Le Parfait Paris (Yelp event) – San Diego, CA

Yelp recently partnered with Le Parfait Paris to offer yelpers a chance to try out the restaurant’s French inspired dishes and pastries. We were given a $25 credit to try anything we wanted from Le Parfait Paris. Making a reservation was easy and confirmation was appreciated via an email sent to us. We visited on a… Read More Le Parfait Paris (Yelp event) – San Diego, CA


The Barrel Room

There’s nothing better than getting together with a girlfriend and catching up. It’s great to do so over coffee or a walk on the beach but this is a food blog so who let’s keep it real. Catching up with a friend is best done over a cheese & meat board with a bottle of… Read More The Barrel Room


O’Brien’s Pub – San Diego, CA

I’m nervous to tell you the reason I’ve never been to O’Brien’s Pub in Convoy. So here it goes – I thought everyone there would be irate at Asians because that parking lot sucks so bad. There. I said it. I half kid but the truth of the matter is that I’ve eaten at every… Read More O’Brien’s Pub – San Diego, CA


House of Bites – San Diego (Miramar), CA

I’ll take up any opportunity to try out a new hole in the wall in Miramar. I used to work in the area so this part of town holds a special place in this blogger’s food obsessed heart. I hadn’t heard of House of Bites and read favorable reviews about this Mediterranean and Italian (?)… Read More House of Bites – San Diego (Miramar), CA


Veranda Fireside Lounge & Restaurant (Rancho Bernardo Inn)

I’m a blessed girl when it comes to my friends and family. Sometimes they just know what I need without me asking for it. I had never been to Rancho Bernardo Inn because I thought it was a lame golf resort where old people hung out (I’d be in that category so don’t hate). Tox surprised… Read More Veranda Fireside Lounge & Restaurant (Rancho Bernardo Inn)



I don’t frequent Leucadia or Encinitas all that often but was giddy when I came across Solterra Winery & Kitchen some many months ago. I knew instantly I wanted to have my birthday celebration here. I’m not exactly subtle at dropping hints so it wasn’t hard for Cdj to pick up on the very obvious… Read More SOLTERRA WINERY & KITCHEN
