south cali steak burger bar / chula vista

Last weekend before we went to go see Gabriel Iglesias in The Fluffy Movie, we stopped by this place in Chula Vista for a little lunch first. It’s called South Cali Steak Burger Bar.

It’s not much to look at from the outside and I’m sure you’d easily bypass this place just driving by on the road. There are three parking spots in the front.

Inside there’s about 9 tables, one is a big table for larger groups (the one behind Jake …

[recipe] pork chops and plum sauce
July 30th, 2014Mary, Recipesmary 9 Comments

In addition to those gorgeous Meyer lemons I received from Melissa’s Produce recently, also in the box were these beautiful mini plums!

I hadn’t the slightest idea what to do with them since usually I just eat plums as is. We were having a BBQ that weekend with my friend, Laura, so I decided to do something with them. I started thinking about how much I love plum sauce (the one you use for dipping in Chinese food) but I decided …

triple lobsters at fishtales in hatfield, ma

I only have a couple of Massachusetts posts left! This is one of them. For our last proper dinner in Massachusetts, on Father’s Day, my Uncle Bob wanted to take us to this place for triple lobsters. Triple lobsters for $19.99. YES. You read that correctly. Look, I have proof!

See, I wouldn’t lie to you.

Also we were in Hatfield! No, it’s no reference to the famous Hatfields and McCoy’s though honestly I thought there might be some connection until I …

rubio’s california bowl / utc

While I’ve lived in San Diego for more than a decade, I had my first fish taco when a Rubio’s opened up in the mid-90’s in my hometown of Rancho Cucamonga. Yes, that city actually exists and, no, it’s not like that movie Next Friday with Ice Cube. Well, most of it at least, but that’s a story for another time.

wienerschnitzel hot dogs

Ah, Wienerschnitzel. I hadn’t been here in years and two things converged to bring me here last weekend: 1) I got some gift cards from a PR person and 2) They were having a 61 cents anniversary special. Let’s do this.

The familiar steeple A frame is still present in all of the Wienerschnitzel’s in San Diego. I totally associate this look with hot dogs.

The menu. They don’t just have hot dogs anymore! There’s also a variety of chili burgers and …

wings and fish / encanto

Last Friday Jake and I were running some errands in the evening when I started thinking about dinner. And yet again, I was having a craving for chicken wings. We hadn’t found our “go to” spot yet and I was scoping out Yelp for ideas on places we hadn’t tried yet. We had T with us so we couldn’t do a bar (like Duck Dive) and somehow I stumbled on this place in Encanto (my old hood) called Wings and …

danny’s donuts / vista

Right next door to Peppertree Frosty is a little place called Danny’s Donuts.

The place is named after Dan Abeyta, who worked in the donut industry for 46 years before he retired… and then went right back to it, opening Danny’s Donuts a few years after he retired. He missed the customer interaction and came out of retirement to open his own shop (after working at Dunkin’ Donuts on the East Coast, among other places). Danny created recipes featured in his …
