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

Tresors de la Mer (@Addiction Aquatic Development) – Taipei, Taiwan

Our adventure at the Addiction Aquatic Development led us to Tresors de la Mer which is a sit down Japanese restaurant at the Taipei Fish Market. There’s no sit down sushi area inside Addiction Aquatic Development so my mom insisted we try Tresors de la Mer which is located to the right of the charcoal… Read More Tresors de la Mer (@Addiction Aquatic Development) – Taipei, Taiwan

Ignite Bistro – Carlsbad, CA

Cdj had a birthday recently and I wanted to surprise him with as many gifts possible. The surprises included: him choosing a movie at a fancy movie place (without me criticizing about his movie pick), a nice lunch (without me judging him for his pick), and parasailing adventure at Torrey Pines Gliderport (without me nagging… Read More Ignite Bistro – Carlsbad, 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

Brunch

Vessel Restaurant + Bar ($15 BOTTOMLESS Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar + Weekend Brunch)

San Diego is such a beautiful city to explore for brunches. We have the views, the weather, and enough towns in this city to find a nice brunch to try. But, when was the last time you saw a BOTTOMLESS Build your own Bloody Mary bar. Yeah, bottomless. Meaning you can go up as many… Read More Vessel Restaurant + Bar ($15 BOTTOMLESS Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar + Weekend Brunch)

Karina’s Mexican Seafood

I was invited to try out Karina’s Mexican Seafood and was pretty excited as this seafood restaurant has been on my bucket list for years. Karina’s Mexican Seafood has been notorious for two things : 1) beautiful servers and 2) ceviche. I was able to bring a plus 1 and called CDJ. When I asked… Read More Karina’s Mexican Seafood

The Cheesecake Factory (happy birthday sis) – PASADENA, CA

I wouldn’t normally write about food at The Cheesecake Factory. Who hasn’t eaten there right. We’re all pretty familiar with this humungously popular food chain. Plus, the wait to just get a table can be over an hour. No thank you. But, when baby sis quietly says she wants to go to The Cheesecake Factory… Read More The Cheesecake Factory (happy birthday sis) – PASADENA, CA

Shogun Restaurant (BEST Teppanyaki Lunch Special) – San Marcos, CA

It’s rare when sis, mom, and I are all in the same part of town AND all free for a quick lunch. Mom was getting ready to drive back to LA but we all managed to agree to have lunch together as it’s been too long since our last sitting (which I think was at… Read More Shogun Restaurant (BEST Teppanyaki Lunch Special) – San Marcos, CA

Italian

CATANIA COASTAL ITALIAN – LA JOLLA, CA

There are certain streets in La Jolla that remind me of Greek Row in a prestigious Ivy League university. Prospect Street is the Harvard Greek Row, Girard Avenue is the Yale Greek Row, and Fay Street (ya know I had to use a street named after me, minus their error of forgetting to add an… Read More CATANIA COASTAL ITALIAN – LA JOLLA, CA

PUERTO LA BOCA

PUERTO LA BOCA Let’s keep the streak with my Groupon obsession shall we. I bought a Puerto La Boca deal off Groupon some weeks ago and surprise, surprise – the Groupon was expiring soon. I had read great reviews about this Argentinian restaurant and Soo has raved about the steaks here. So I figured I’d… Read More PUERTO LA BOCA
