El Pescador Fish Market & Restaurant

I visited El Pescador Fish Market & Restaurant when they were located in a tiny location in La Jolla. The restaurant was cramped, parking was tough, and the visit always seemed stressful. I heard they relocated just across the street so I figured it was time to visit El Pescador and see what seafood they… Read More El Pescador Fish Market & Restaurant

Kazoku – Hualien, Taiwan

To say that I’m making each moment count here in Taiwan is an understatement. Jet lag can’t even stop the time I’m memorizing with my mom and grandma. I haven’t been sleeping much, not just because of the time change, but mostly because the three of us stay up talking and laughing until well after… Read More Kazoku – Hualien, Taiwan

Liberty Public Market

The buzz about the Liberty Public Market was pretty exciting and loud wasn’t it. I didn’t think too much about this new indoor public market as I’ve been to similar versions in Seattle and San Francisco (gosh all with exs too, how ironic). Liberty Public Market is located in Point Loma and finding parking that… Read More Liberty Public Market

Tajima Izakaya

Tajima Izakaya is the restaurant my guy friends (who could care two sh*ts about food) prefer to eat when they’re done partying. These are the same guy friends that think Guy Fieri is a wonderful man and want to be friends with. SO, not sure if that gives Tajima Izakaya cred or no cred if you… Read More Tajima Izakaya

SUSHI HUKU – SAN MARCOS, CA

I stumbled across this sushi restaurant the other week. A meeting went longer than expected and I was faint (I’m so dramatic) from being so hungry. Someone I owed a huge favor to was going to join me so we both thought Sushi Huku would be a nice place to have lunch. I couldn’t quite… Read More SUSHI HUKU – SAN MARCOS, CA

Wrench and Rodent Seabasstropub

This post of Wrench and Rodent Seabasstropub is over due as I visited this restaurant some weeks ago. It’s been a hectic week so it’s been hard to take a breather and write about food. I don’t know how other bloggers do it sometimes. So I will do my best to remember what’s in these… Read More Wrench and Rodent Seabasstropub

Ikiru Japanese (+ Skinny Fish ramblings) – Point Loma (San Diego, CA)

Ikiru Japanese has been on my ” Must Eat” places in SD for some time now. It’s hard to find a new Japanese restaurant that you can fall in love with. I have my regular Japanese/Korean sushi places I frequent but there’s not really one specific place that I’d say is *THE* sushi place to… Read More Ikiru Japanese (+ Skinny Fish ramblings) – Point Loma (San Diego, CA)

Zip Fusion (+ Stupid Lifu the Dog ramblings) – Torrey Hills (San Diego), CA

I’ve seen ads for this place for quite some time now but never had the urge to try it out. They’re not really located in the Carmel Valley area that I normally frequent so it’s never been on my list of places to check out. But before the SF trip, I wanted sushi so bad.… Read More Zip Fusion (+ Stupid Lifu the Dog ramblings) – Torrey Hills (San Diego), CA

Shimbashi Izakaya (+ Love/Dating ramblings) – Del Mar, CA

Love is in the air. There. I said it. It grosses me out to say that but it’s true. I used to read blogs and smile when the blogger would speak about their significant others. Kirk has The Missus Kirbie has Mr. K CC has Bert Mary has Jake Their significant others would usually be… Read More Shimbashi Izakaya (+ Love/Dating ramblings) – Del Mar, CA

Sushi Express (Conveyor belt Sushi NT$30/plate = $1 US/plate) – Hualien, Taiwan

I have a huge fascination with sushi served on conveyor belts. My first experience with the sushi conveyor belt was in LA’s Little Tokyo. There was something about seeing the little, covered plates of sushi go around and around and around. So mom told me she heard of a sushi bar conveyor belt restaurant here… Read More Sushi Express (Conveyor belt Sushi NT$30/plate = $1 US/plate) – Hualien, Taiwan
