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 …

To end our first full day in Tampa, Chris let me choose the restaurant. Ain’t he nice? 
After the breakfast and bakery, Chris drove us around Tampa Bay a bit and then we went over to St. Petersburg (you have to cross bridges to get over to that part of town). We ended up visiting the Salvador Dali museum and after that, I picked a place nearby for dinner. If you’re interesting in seeing my other photos from around Tampa and …

opa y ole greek restaurant / otay mesa – san diego, ca

We’re going to do a little break in travel posts to review something we tried right before Jake and I left to go to Florida. It’s this Greek restaurant waaaaaaay down South in Otay Mesa off the 905. Basically: a place I would probably never go to if we hadn’t gone over to the outlet mall at Plaza de las Americas. It’s always weird to me to look over and see Mexico and think, “Huh. Right over there is a whole different …

We’re taking a short break from my travel posts to share a few ideas for Mother’s Day coming up this Sunday! I partnered with Whole Foods for this post with a few quick and easy ideas for your mom (in case, you know, the day snuck up on you – it’s okay, you still have some time).

1) Breakfast for Mom
Breakfast can be easy peasy with a few fresh fruits from Whole Foods, a little bit of yogurt, milk and plain …

florida bakery / tampa, fl
May 8th, 2014Florida, Mary, Road Tripsmary 8 Comments

After filling up on sandwiches over at La Teresita, Chris took us a few doors down the street to a bakery called Florida Bakery. Yesssss. He knows me well! I sure can’t say no to a bakery visit!

The bakery is situated in a strip mall. It reminded me a bit of City Heights in San Diego – like it would fit right into that stretch along University Avenue. The place was quite large though. I didn’t photo all of the …

On our first morning in Tampa, Chris took us to La Teresita, a Cuban restaurant in Tampa. We went to the cafeteria portion (which is open 24 hours a day Thursday – Saturday) where there are U shaped tables and bar stools for sitting.

You can kind of see how it’s set up in this photo (but only a little bit). We’re sitting at the corner with Jake in the middle of us at the curved part of the U shape. …

taco bus / tampa, fl
May 6th, 2014Florida, Mary, Road Tripsmary 6 Comments

Our flight landed in Tampa at about 10:30PM. Jake and I were still on West Coast time so we were still pretty awake despite the long plane ride across the country. Chris, our friend and host extraordinaire for the week, took us to the first pit spot of the entire trip. He took us native San Diegans to a Mexican restaurant! Chris said this was probably the best Mexican place in town and it’s a little different from anything we …
