  1. hi mary – i’m so glad you guys enjoyed it there, especially the longanisa fries! The guys working there are so chill.

      The guys working there are really chill and cool! One guy (I think maybe the owner) was explaining a lot of things to us, telling us about all the popular items they had. Very cool atmosphere!

    I totally hear ya about the ‘in or out of mood’ for certain things – it’s funny b/c I went thru an egg-spell for some time, then got super sick of it, then just recently got back into it. Go figure.

    But the sliders looked really good – especially the buns for some reason. So soft and pillow-y.

    I’ve never tried avo ice cream before and it still freaks me out thinking about it – so perhaps I’ll have to muster up the courage soon to do so!

      Yes! Sometimes I want certain things all the time then I get sick of them. Eggs are currently on my “bleah” list, the last few times I had them they were overcooked or just gross or something. Pan del sal is quite tasty, I grew up eating those buns so it was funny to me to see them used for slider buns! Sweet avocado things still kind of freak me out, too, but the yogurt was actually really good and makes me want to try other avocado sweets!

    First off, I want to say I love your blog.

    I am orginally from San Diego and look forward to visiting whenever I can. Infact, I am so excited about my trip this weekend, that I was searching for a picture of Longaniza Fries to send to my friends- which is how I magically landed on your page. I am soooooo glad I did.

    I have always wanted to try new places and always get stuck going to the same ol’ places I know will satisfy my taste buds. However, you and your blog have inspired me to try all the places that I have on “the list”.

    I have added your blog to my favorites list and look forward to future posts!

      Thank you, Roxanne! It like having a little adventure in your life to try all those little places you’ve been wanting to try forever! Sometimes it’s hit or miss – but the hits make it totally worth the ride! Hope you have fun adventuring and trying out new places! 🙂
