I’ve been loving a lot of things lately and this latest find comes from one of my favorite grocery stores: Trader Joe’s. They have a little section in my neighborhood Trader Joe’s with all of the newest products and as soon as I saw this I grabbed it and stuck it in the cart.

tamales ancira / chula vista

Tamales are still one of my favorite Mexican items and a treat I don’t get to indulge in as often as I would like. A lot of taco shops or Mexican restaurants have tamales on the menu, but they quickly run out of tamales. There are a few dedicated shops in town whose menu mostly consists of tamales and this is the one of those shops. Let’s check out Tamales Ancira!

I promise it does say “Tamales Ancira” on the outside …

yuma part two: a date shake and the bridge to nowhere
March 6th, 2015AZ, Mary, Travelmary 4 Comments

After visiting the tiny church in Yuma, we went back on the road and headed back towards the freeway. We didn’t get very far before we made another stop. While driving to the tiny church, Jake noticed a large bridge that looked familiar to us and he noticed a sign for date shakes. Date shakes aren’t easy to come by in San Diego and are one of my very favorite things, so we stopped to check out From the Farm.

We …

This will be another one of those radical random rambling posts (yes I just said radical, no I’m not stuck in the 90’s, hey I was going for alliteration). 

[the kirin]
First up! THE KIRIN. Instead of being a magical sea creature, this is actually a sandwich filled with sea creatures. Shrimp to be specific. It’s one of the newer sandwiches from Supernatural Sandwiches and it’s a Shrimp Banh Mi with Chinese sausage. Mostly you just see the shrimp in my photo but you …

izzy’s cafe / el cajon, ca

Back in January, Jake and I had a kid-free morning for some reason (I think T had baseball practice). Jake wanted to head out to El Cajon to visit a dealership to look at used cars and he let me choose a place to eat. Nothing new, eh.
I scoured around on Yelp to find a spot for breakfast and found a little placed called Izzy’s Cafe. It had decent reviews and seemed like a homey spot so we headed over …

gino’s pizzeria featuring the philadelphia sandwich co.

Gino’s Pizzeria Featuring The Philadelphia Sandwich Co. (isn’t that a mouthful) is a new spot to the Miramar area, behind the Denny’s on Miramar Road. They put together Gino’s Pizza and added the Philadelphia Sandwich Co. into the shop. The Philadelphia Sandwich Co. used to be located off Convoy Street near the Original Pancake House. Gino’s took over a place called Dino’s that served pizza and Italian sandwiches. I visited Dino’s a few times and always thought the place needed …

¡salud! by the san diego taco company / barrio logan

Last weekend Jake and I felt like young adults again, going out for dinner and a play. At night! On a Friday! By ourselves! This is a rare thing these days.
We were going over to Coronado to check out the play, Avenue Q, and needed a little dinner before the show. Jake nixed any suggestions I made for dining in Downtown so I went with a place just outside of Downtown in Barrio Logan. A new place called ¡Salud! which is …
