jake & eggs

Last Sunday morning I wanted to go out for a little breakfast. After being cooped up for a week with the flu, I was ready to go out for a little bit of grub! I had read about a new pop-up restaurant in Ocean Beach that I wanted to check out called Jake & Eggs. Obviously the name tickled me and it seemed like the spot to take Jake for breakfast!

The chef is named Jake, solving the mystery of the …

havana grill

On Saturday after running a few errands, it was time for Jake and I to have some “real lunch”! I picked Havana Grill since we were in the area and I had been curious about Havana Grill. I had seen it was finally open and wanted to check it out with Jake.

Havana Grill is in that little plaza off Clairemont Mesa Blvd. at the 805 when you start heading west. The smaller one that’s slighter harder to park in. Surely …

getting over the flu + shakes from shake smart

I disappeared from the blog last week since I came down with something. Namely, the evil flu. I was surprised that I even got the flu since I got my yearly flu shot, but apparently my body just couldn’t fight off that nasty virus even with some “protection” in my back pocket. 

I had a cute little puppy nurse to help lift my spirits during my boring week of illness. 

Fun fact: if you go to the doctor’s office wearing a face …

whimsic alley, milk jar cookies, and wacko soap plant / los angeles, ca

After a very filling lunch of Korean BBQ at Han Jang Chon, we headed out to check out a toy shop in Burbank. After looking at Funko Pop toys we then headed over to a shop that I’ve read about on CC’s blog called Whimsic Alley as well as a cookie shop called Milk Jar Cookies and a kooky little shop called Wacko Soap Plant. Let’s start off with Whimsic Alley!

I’ve been wanting to visit Whimsic Alley for quite some time as …

hae jang chon / los angeles, ca

We haven’t done much traveling since Boston (and someday I’ll finish those travel posts… sigh) and I wanted to take a little day trip somewhere. Last weekend we opted to go up to Los Angeles for a foodie adventure and to do a little shopping. Jake and I have become slightly obsessed with Funko Pops and also decided to hit up a few shops looking for pops. But first… lunch at a place called Hae Jang Chon!

We’ve been into trying out …

embargo grill

Last month (also last year! haha!) Laura and I went out for a little dinner to a spot I’d been meaning to check out for awhile: the Embargo Grill. It’s a Cuban place down in the Sports Arena area (just a couple doors down from the Cravory and in the same lot as the amusingly named taco shop “It’s a Taco Shop”). 

I remember this spot used to be a burger place called BGR the Burger Joint. Looking back at my …

For New Year’s Eve this year I decided to change up the usual snacks that I did. But first… let’s look at a little bit of a quickie lunch that Jake and I had earlier in the day.

There’s a market over in La Mesa called the Vine Ripe Market. It’s an ethnic market with lots of Mediterranean items. Jake and I went here a few weeks ago and I remember they had a bunch of different meats. I was looking for …
