ham n scram / westminster, ca

Over Labor Day weekend this year, Jake, T, and I made our way back up to Orange County to check out the Civil War Reenactment once again. But first… we had to stop for breakfast. Breakfast is very important after a long drive and a little Yelp research led me to a little place in Westminster called Ham n Scram.

It’s not a big spot. There’s about four tables inside and the place was full that morning. We were worried we’d …

I had a bunch of things that didn’t quite constitute a full post, so I’m going to stick them all together and call it “food finds”. Why not!

[housemade gyro with potato salad from wich addiction]
Here’s a terrible photo of something SUPER delicious from Wich Addiction. A couple of weeks ago the special of the week was a housemade gyro with their own tzatziki sauce on a scallion flatbread. I almost ate my screen looking at this beautiful sandwich again. The …

dirty birds / pacific beach

I’m forever on a quest to find awesome chicken wings. I’ve read before that Dirty Birds has topped a few lists. Jinxi did a post about Dirty Birds recently that got me thinkin’ it was about time I check it out. Jake plays softball down in Pacific Beach on Sundays and my friend Laura joined us for some post-softball grub. 

In case you didn’t know, this is definitely a sports bar. Just a few things give it away… 

TVs line the whole …

roadem bbq / kearny mesa

Jake is actually the one who discovered this place and tried it before me – an all you can eat Korean BBQ spot over off Convoy called Roadem BBQ. He’s visited a few times and I suggested we go one recent Saturday for lunch. Korean BBQ sounded like a mighty fine idea to me.
For lunch they have three different priced menus.

Menu A is only $11.99 (click to enlarge).

Menu B is $15.99. You get two extra beefy items with this one …

el rodeo mexican food / city heights

One afternoon Jake and I were running around doing a few errands and needed a quick bite to eat. The first place we tried to go wasn’t open (a new place on University Ave. called Happy Rooster – how awesome is that name?) and Jake picked this second spot – a Mexican place on El Cajon Blvd. called El Rodeo Mexican Food.

It’s one of the many places that line El Cajon Blvd. and is pretty close to Hoover High School. …

Today’s post is a bit of a two for one kind of deal – we’re trying out two products in one post today! The fine folks over at the Seaside Market in Cardiff were nice enough to send me a sample of their beautiful Cardiff Crack which is a marinated Burgundy Pepper Tri Tip.

the patio on lamont street / pacific beach

I was recently invited to come and check out The Patio on Lamont Street (there are actually two locations now, the other in Mission Hills). Jake was originally supposed to go with me, but he ended up having to work, so I took my parents and Maya with me.

This is a view of the patio area later in the evening when with the lights lit up. It gave the area a wonderful warmth!

There was also an …
