common theory public house
September 23rd, 2014Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego Countymary 8 Comments

Common Theory Public House is a gastropub that popped up in Kearny Mesa earlier this year. It’s in the same lot at Yes! Pingo, Blush Desserts and my chiropractor (not food related). It’s hard to pop in a visit here now that they don’t serve lunch on Monday’s (which is generally the day I go see my chiropractor). But a few switcheroo’s in appointments allowed me to check out Common Theory Public House a couple of times.

I visited this space …

pizzeria mozza / downtown san diego

After we got sugared up from Frost Me Gourmet Cupcakes, we headed over to Pizzeria Mozza for some lunch. I’ve been wanting to visit Pizzeria Mozza since they opened last year, but I heard they had some trouble working out the kinks. Since they’re now listed in the Eater San Diego 38, I figured they had finally worked everything out and it was time to visit.  

Here’s their menu, which you can click to enlarge and read in it’s full glory.

frost me gourmet cupcakes / downtown san diego

Frost Me Gourmet Cupcakes is the newest cupcake shop to pop up in San Diego. I was recently invited to go down to Seaport Village and check out the new shop and stuff my face with cupcakes. Was I up to the task? OH YEAH! 
The shop is owned by Audrey Hermes and her boyfriend Jon, who were incredibly welcoming and friendly. They’ve been on Cupcake Wars twice! The first time they didn’t win but the second time they took home the …

foodie finds (part 2)
September 18th, 2014etc, Mary, productsmary 8 Comments

Here’s another installment of “Foodie Finds!” – various things that don’t warrant their own post filled with products and foods I’ve tried out recently.

There’s a Fresh n’ Easy near my work and I stop by there sometimes to pick up a few things. I spotted some “old time” looking candies. The first one: the Goo Goo Cluster. The Goo Goo Cluster was invented in 1912 by Howell Campbell in Nashville, TN. It was the first combination candy that had several types of …

food truck lunches at my urban eats and the pierogi truck
September 17th, 2014Mary, San Diego Countymary 10 Comments

Am I sick of food trucks yet? Apparently not. I visited two food trucks last week just for kicks.

The first one was My Urban Eats. My love of green made me love the look of this truck right away. And I love the font they use. I kind of feel like the chicken is eyeballing me though.

This is the menu. I believe they change things up every few months or so. Keeping it in season! The thing that caught my …

italianissimo trattoria / chula vista, ca
September 16th, 2014Chula Vista, Mary, San Diego Countymary 8 Comments

It’s been insanely hot around San Diego all weekend. Last Friday night Jake, T and I went to the cheap theater down in Chula Vista to escape the heat of his house (we went to see The Hundred Foot Journey; while not the greatest movie I’ve ever seen, I did enjoy it and it did manage to make me quite hungry). After the movie it was getting to be a little late and a quick search on Yelp showed me …

genghis grill / mira mesa
September 15th, 2014Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego Countymary 12 Comments

Genghis Grill opened in Mira Mesa earlier this year. I went awhile ago with my co-workers but I wasn’t super impressed with my initial visit. Recently Laura came over so we could continue watching Downton Abbey (we’re still behind!) and grab some dinner. I suggested Genghis Grill again just to see if they had changed or there were any improvements from my last visit. Let’s see how it went!

We went for dinner on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was fairly …

mini breakfast pizzas on pretzel rolls
September 12th, 2014Mary, Recipesmary 4 Comments

Happy Friday aka Happy Pre-Weekend! I feel like I’ve been waiting all week for this day to come around. Let’s reminisce about some food I made last weekend. Specifically breakfast food. Pizza breakfast food. Mini pizza breakfast food. On pretzel rolls. Yesssss.
Originally I was going to do these on English muffins but Jake and I had bought 4 soft pretzel sticks at Trader Joe’s and they were begging to be used. I had to indulge them.

I really like the mini …
