jamms restaurant / las vegas
August 17th, 2015Las Vegas, Mary, Travelmary 2 Comments

We played around with some ideas for breakfast the next day in Vegas. Should we do a buffet? Should we go on the cheap? In the end I decided to try another off-strip restaurant called Jamms Restaurant. 

Jamms Restaurant is way, way off the Strip in a strip mall. No oversized casinos and flashy lights here, folks. When you get away from the Strip, Las Vegas starts to look like a “normal” city!
The item that really caught my eye while browsing …

Ahhh, Las Vegas. It’s pretty much a rite of passage for all young adults in Southern California to make a pilgrimage to this unholy land of neon lights, cheap alcoholic drinks, gambling, and staying up all night until you pass out and wake up in a hotel room with at least five other people. You do this at least once a year (maybe more) until you get a little older and the allure of Vegas starts to get a little …

It’s that time of year again! Lays Chips has released a new batch of weird-o flavors onto the public for us to vote on. Jake, T and I tried this out last year so let’s see how these “Do Us a Flavor” Lays Chips fair this time around.

Here are the crazy new flavors: Southern Biscuits and Gravy, West Coast Truffle Fries, New York Reuben, and Greektown Gyro.

The Biscuits and Gravy chips are the first ones we tried out. …

world curry 20th anniversary

Recently I was invited to attend an anniversary dinner for World Curry in Pacific Beach. World Curry has been around for 20 years (!) serving all kinds of different curries from around the globe (very appropriate restaurant name, don’t you think?). I took Stacey as my date and we saw a few familiar faces at the event such as Lynn from oh-so yummy, Faye from Faye’s Fork, and J.S. from Sun Diego Eats! 

The restaurant was closed down for this special …

the grove grinder

The Grove Grinder is one of those little places we’ve passed by so many times without ever actually going in. One recent weekend it was finally time for us to check out this little building and see what it was all about.

The Grove Grinder is across the street from the GTM store and about a stone’s throw away from the Giant Lemon. You can see it on a side street if you’re driving up Broadway towards the lemon. It looks …

mary’s donuts

Looking through my past donut posts I was surprised to find I have never done a dedicated post to my favorite donut shop in town! What?! Oh it’s been mentioned on here before but I felt it was high time to officially share with you my very favorite donuts in San Diego: Mary’s Donuts.
I swear it’s not because we share a name, either.

I don’t even remember how long we’ve been coming to Mary’s Donuts but it’s been a few years now. …

el cilantro mexican restaurant

Over the weekend Jake and I headed down to Imperial Beach to try and see if we could catch some Stardust Donuts. It was a failed endeavor though as we drove up we could clearly see there were no donuts left. Ahhh! Foiled again! So the trip south wouldn’t be a total loss, I found us a new-to-us place to try called El Cilantro Mexican Restaurant.

El Cilantro is tucked away in the back of the Imperial Beach Plaza Shopping Center, …
