ASIAN FUSION

Trade Winds Tavern – San Diego, CA

I was curious to see what Trade Winds Tavern was about. I had seen them slowly take over the previous location. I didn’t know much about Trade Winds Tavern except seeing the mural of the girl every time we passed by. I didn’t know if the tavern would be Asian themed in regards to decor,… Read More Trade Winds Tavern – San Diego, CA

Le Bambou Restaurant – Del Mar, CA

Le Bambou Restaurant in Del Mar is considered a mainstay in this area. It’s been around for ages and has managed to survive the times. I cannot remember if I’ve ever visited but I vividly remember seeing Le Bambou Restaurant every time I visit this part of town. The restaurant is tucked away in a… Read More Le Bambou Restaurant – Del Mar, CA

Pho T Cali (for UFC 200 fight night)

I was kinda duped into hosting a UFC fight night recently. It was a big fight card and friends wanted someone who had a/c to host the party. They promised they would bring worthy food and beer. They also promised not to dirty the place, put feet on anything, and not breathe (a few were… Read More Pho T Cali (for UFC 200 fight night)

777 Noodle House

I don’t visit City Heights often but knew there were some reputable restaurants in this area. Reputable not meaning Michelin three stars but more yelp stars if you know what I mean. I was in the area some weeks ago on a Friday for a funeral. It was strangely a warming way to start the 4th… Read More 777 Noodle House

Pho Ca Dao & Grill – Rancho Bernardo

Pho Ca Dao & Grill is my favorite Vietnamese restaurant at the moment. I think sis or V introduced me to this Rancho Bernardo location and I’ve been hooked ever since. The restaurant is clean, bright, and comfortable. There’s always a wait during lunch but it goes by quickly with the fast host that seats… Read More Pho Ca Dao & Grill – Rancho Bernardo

Char House: Saigon Grill and Pho – San Diego, CA

Friends think I should rent a condo in Convoy as I’m in that area at least two times a week. To eat. Like, seriously. For food. I’ve seen signs for Char House over the last few months and was curious to see what this new Vietnamese restaurant had to offer. Note to self and to… Read More Char House: Saigon Grill and Pho – San Diego, CA

OB Noodle House Bar 1502

I still have a bad habit of being hungry before/during/after church. I pay attention during service, don’t get me wrong, but my stomach tells me to figure the eff out where we (that’s my stomach and I) will eat afterwards. Friend and I decided to go to OB Noodle House Bar 1502 (what a long… Read More OB Noodle House Bar 1502

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

TIM KY NOODLE

I have to admit that I get happy when I see a new(er) restaurant in Mira Mesa. I like eating in this part of town but feel that I’ve tried every single place. So new restaurant blood is much needed to this sometimes ravenous blogger. Tim Ky Noodle opened some time ago but I had… Read More TIM KY NOODLE

Cali Baguette Express – Mira Mesa, CA

I think I can officially say my banh mi binges are over. It was getting kinda scary in the beginning. I’m not saying I don’t still enjoy a banh mi sandwich – I’m just saying I think I’ve tuckered out on ’em (at least for the moment). I have seen and passed by Cali Baguette… Read More Cali Baguette Express – Mira Mesa, CA
