revisit to bud’s louisiana cafe / kearny mesa – san diego, ca
May 16th, 2014Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 6 Comments

Taking a little break from the travel posts to write about a place Jake and I went to last week here in San Diego. I haven’t written about Bud’s Louisiana Cafe since 2009, when they were still located in Tierrasanta! I’ve been back a few times since that post but am finally doing a revisit post. Woo!
I had a strong hankering last week for some catfish… specifically some FRIED catfish. Maybe it was that week spent in the South that …

spotted cow viet kitchen / kearny mesa – san diego, ca

And now, some words from my minion:
- – – – – – – – – -
While Mary toured the land of key lime pie and Cuban sandwiches, I attended a complimentary lunch invitation from the Spotted Cow Viet Kitchen in her stead. The unique name piqued my curiosity and I immediately thought of British spy Emma Peel saying “How now brown cow?” in The Avengers. Though this outing would be more Bourdain than Bond, I knew that I had to …

babs (bao’s awesome burgers) / convoy – san diego, ca
April 2nd, 2014Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 8 Comments

I’ve been sitting on a Groupon for Babs (Bao’s Awesome Burgers) for quite some time. We’ve tried to go a couple of times when it didn’t work out but this past weekend we finally made it in! Jake only had to circle us around the tiny lot once before someone left a spot that we were able to grab. I think Jake is a parking good luck charm.

For the Babs Groupon deal, we had the deal where you could get …

jeong won korean bbq buffet / kearny mesa – san diego, ca
January 20th, 2014Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 9 Comments

Jake had been wanting to try Korean BBQ for quite some time. The allure of “all you can eat” was a siren call to him and he knows I’m super reluctant to go to all you can eat places, but I had been wanting to try Korean BBQ as well. A few other bloggers suggested that I visit Jeong Won Korean BBQ buffet for our first AYCE try.
At Jeong Won, in the back of the restaurant is an area for …

e & drink / kearny mesa – san diego, ca
July 5th, 2013Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 8 Comments

Before it got stupid hot and was just on the warm side, my co-workers and I went to E & Drink to get some hot pot. Individual sized mini hot pots, which now that I’ve had it, I don’t really think it was that “mini”. Then again, I also can never finish one bowl of Pho, so maybe I’m biased in my thinking.

taegukgi korean bbq / kearny mesa – san diego, ca
June 19th, 2013Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 12 Comments

Let me admit right away that I don’t know a lot about Korean food. But that doesn’t deter me from trying new things. I picked Taegukgi Korean BBQ House as a lunch outing for my co-workers and I. Funny thing though, we didn’t get the all you can eat bbq! We just ordered off the lunch menu.
I saw this place next to the new Zion market on Clairemont Mesa Blvd. This used to be the Sears Auto Center and I could …

mama jamaica grill & cafe / kearny mesa – san diego, ca

Update: Mama Jamaica’s  closed at this location last week! According to a Yelper, they lost their lease and they are moving to join with another restaurant soon. On with my review:
- – – – – – – – – – -
I was doing all that Easter posting last week so I’m all out of order with my postings.
Not that you know this or anything. But I’m telling it to you anyway.
This is a co-worker lunch from recent times that I …

yakitori yakyudori & ramen / clairemont – san diego, ca
January 11th, 2013Clairemont, Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 7 Comments

Pretty much all of my co-workers know that I’m a food blogger but I had never busted out the camera before this meal. Pretty much everyone else I know who dines with me knows “no eating until I take pictures!” rule. It was about time the co-workers get broken in on this rule.
My co-workers let me pick the places we dine at, too. As in, I give them three choices and they vote from the three. I’ve just about exhausted …
