hodad’s + birthdays

T turned 17 last week. Jake and I remarked profusely about how time passes so quickly. I feel like summer just started and now we’re nearing the final days of summer instead. T will be starting his junior year of high school in a couple of weeks and I’m amazed at how much he’s grown over the years. For his birthday, we went to Hodad’s in Downtown San Diego with Jake’s mom, T, Jake and I all in tow. I …

bagatelle cafe & bistro
August 24th, 2015Mary, Miramar, San Diego Countymary 6 Comments

Bagatelle Cafe & Bistro is one of the newer restaurants to open up recently in the Miramar area. I love it when new places open up around my office – it gives me new foods to try! Bagatelle Cafe is in the same strip mall as SuperNatural Sandwiches and they serve French-American food for breakfast and lunch. I’ve been a few times and feel I can now properly assess them.

world curry 20th anniversary

Recently I was invited to attend an anniversary dinner for World Curry in Pacific Beach. World Curry has been around for 20 years (!) serving all kinds of different curries from around the globe (very appropriate restaurant name, don’t you think?). I took Stacey as my date and we saw a few familiar faces at the event such as Lynn from oh-so yummy, Faye from Faye’s Fork, and J.S. from Sun Diego Eats! 

The restaurant was closed down for this special …

the grove grinder

The Grove Grinder is one of those little places we’ve passed by so many times without ever actually going in. One recent weekend it was finally time for us to check out this little building and see what it was all about.

The Grove Grinder is across the street from the GTM store and about a stone’s throw away from the Giant Lemon. You can see it on a side street if you’re driving up Broadway towards the lemon. It looks …

mary’s donuts

Looking through my past donut posts I was surprised to find I have never done a dedicated post to my favorite donut shop in town! What?! Oh it’s been mentioned on here before but I felt it was high time to officially share with you my very favorite donuts in San Diego: Mary’s Donuts.
I swear it’s not because we share a name, either.

I don’t even remember how long we’ve been coming to Mary’s Donuts but it’s been a few years now. …

el cilantro mexican restaurant

Over the weekend Jake and I headed down to Imperial Beach to try and see if we could catch some Stardust Donuts. It was a failed endeavor though as we drove up we could clearly see there were no donuts left. Ahhh! Foiled again! So the trip south wouldn’t be a total loss, I found us a new-to-us place to try called El Cilantro Mexican Restaurant.

El Cilantro is tucked away in the back of the Imperial Beach Plaza Shopping Center, …

wienerschnitzel [part deux]

Hello, Wienerschnitzel. We meet again. I hope your presentation is a little bit better than last time. Don’t disappoint me, now.

Jake and I were here to try the new chili cheese dogs thanks to some PR coupons I received. Jake is the instigator here since he said we should try Wienerschnitzel again. I didn’t really want to. 

It was blazing hot on the day we went and I was so close to getting Freezee. 

We went to the location on El Cajon Blvd. right …
