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

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 …

cafe hue / kearny mesa – san diego, ca
April 4th, 2012Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 5 Comments

First things first. If you visit the blog on a regular basis, you’ll see a couple of minor tweaks. I’ve been wanting to redo the blog and rename it for awhile but didn’t really feel like actually having to hassle with it and move it, so I just did a few minor tweaks – oh, and gee, changed the name of the blog. No biggie. You like?
Onto the food!
Last week Jake and I were going to go Downtown to check …

french macarons at big joy family bakery / clairemont – san diego, ca
January 18th, 2012Clairemont, Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 6 Comments

I used to frequent Big Joy Family Bakery back in the day but hadn’t been there in quite some time. To be honest, I kind of forgot about it. Until I saw these beautiful, brightly colored french macarons on CC’s (one of many posts!) and CAB’s blogs, reminding me all about this place!
Course, it took me awhile to finally make it over here. But so glad I did!

I love, love, love the colors on these beautiful little airy cookies.
Let’s see if …

about this site

My name is Mary and I live in San Diego. I've been blogging since 2006 as a hobby - it's my fun, creative outlet! Some random things about me: I'm a front end web developer, I love peanut butter, cookies, warm cupcakes, puppy noses, star gazing, new bags of sugar, sprinkles, cupcake wrappers, egg rolls, eating french fries with ice cream, driving with the windows down, snuggling, wes anderson movies, staying up too late reading a good book and Jake. These are my adventures in all things food. Hope you enjoy the ride.
