Maggie’s Cafe | Serra Mesa

A couple of weeks ago I was over in the Serra Mesa area to watch T play in a softball game. Maya and I took a little walk around the field and joined Jake in watching the game and afterwards we went out for a little bite to eat. There’s […] Read More

World Burger Tour at Hard Rock Cafe (+giveaway)

I haven’t been to the Hard Rock Cafe in forever and a day. If I have to go Downtown to visit you, chances are I’ll skip it. Unless you’ve got something cool going on. Like a World Burger Tour. Then I’ll go Downtown for you. The Hard Rock Cafe has […] Read More

Chaba Thai Kitchen | Kearny Mesa

I have lunch in Kearny Mesa every once in awhile since my chiropractor’s office is in that area. Recently I tried out a new-to-me Thai restaurant called Chaba Thai Kitchen. They’ve got a slew of different options plus some great (and cheap!) lunch specials.

The Crack Shack has been on my “to visit” list since it opened. I wasn’t sure if it would be just another hipster place with expensive food or really worth it. Let’s take a look!  The Crack Shack is right next door to Juniper & Ivy  (both are owned by […] Read More
