hot dogs el tigre food stand

Last month after one of Jake’s softball games, we were driving around in search of food. We decided to drive east on University Avenue from the 805 to just wander until we found something that caught our eye. That’s when I saw a food stand on the street in front of a body shop called Tito’s Body Shop. It’s catty corner to Canada Steak Burger and we parked in a lot next to a little market.

The sign that caught my …

a-chau vietnamese sandwiches

Taking a break from all of those desert posts to tell you about some FOOD I actually ate recently. Vietnamese food to be exact! Most of the time I only seem to eat Vietnamese food around Mira Mesa but I was down in Jake’s ‘hood and needed a bite to eat. Jake was doing the Little League thing and I was on my own to grab something before his game started. I decided to go and check out A-Chau which …

tacos el g

I went to Tacos el G (which I thought was Tacos el Gordo) last weekend with Jake, T, and Laura on Saturday night. We had just gone to see The Avengers over at the Regal Cinemas off East H Street (only $5.50 for an evening ticket!) and I wanted tacos. Laura had never been to Tacos el Gordo and we figured the National City location would be a little less crazy than the Chula Vista spot. Sadly I did NOT realize this …

san diego burger week 2015 recap

San Diego Burger Week is amazing because 1) there are $5 burgers (like crazy, gourmet like burgers) all over town! For FIVE dollars! 2) Burger Week lasts LONGER than one week and 3) It’s fun to try a bunch of burgers and share them and 4) A lot of places have $10 deals to get your grubby paws on some fries and beer. Total score for San Diegans everywhere.
Here’s my recap of San Diego Burger Week. I didn’t visit quite …

carnitas uruapan revist

We hadn’t been back to Carnitas Uruapan in awhile. If you remember, I like calling this place Uhura (Star Trek, yo) instead because I kept forgetting how to say “Uruapan.” It pretty much still happens to this day. Sometimes I’ll just look at Jake and say “Uhuraaaaaaa!” and he’ll know what it is that I want. Ain’t that awesome?

I last wrote about Carintas Uruapan back in 2013 (thought we’ve been back many times) and I’m happy to see that the menu …

rodeos meat market

Tacos! Tacos are a completely lovely thing, aren’t they? Street style Tijuana tacos are even better than “normal” tacos with their oodles of meat and simple toppings. When you find a hidden taco gem if feels like you just stumbled upon a secret clubhouse filled with treasures. That’s how Jake and I felt when we found Rodeos Meat Market. 

Jake had been wanting to visit another place in this little strip mall off Market and 47th street. Said place wasn’t prepared …
