maria maria / mission valley | san diego, ca

Since it’s unlikely you’ll want to spend your Cinco de Mayo going to a crappy Mexican restaurant, I’ll do another post about a place that has good food. Deal? Deal!
For this visit we used a coupon for Maria, Maria, a chain of Mexican restaurants inspired by the music of Carlos Santana. On the walls they have various artwork from artists who have all worked with Santana in the past as a reflection of the restaurant and his music. And of …

gringo’s cantina / pacific beach – san diego, ca

Update: This restaurant is now closed.
A few weeks ago (yeah, I’m behind in my blogging!) Jake and I visited Gringo’s Cantina in Pacific Beach at the behest of my dad, who gave us his coupon for $50 worth of food. He had visited before us and told me all about it and gave me the coupon to “see how I would like it” and if “maybe the food will be better when you go”. Hmm.
We visited on a Sunday evening …

maryjane’s coffee shop – hard rock hotel / downtown – san diego, ca

Recently I was invited by the PR rep for Maryjane’s Coffee Shop at the Hard Rock Hotel to come down for a special media dinner to showcase their new chef and some new additions to their restaurant’s menu. Jake and I went down on a Thursday night with a bunch of other media guests for a lovely 5 course dinner to sample and try out. We usually don’t dig going Downtown for much, but our visit to Maryjane’s was pleasant …

sunday brunching at eclipse chocolat

Every Sunday at Eclipse Chocolat they offer a Chocolate Brunch. There are a variety of different menu items to choice from, most infused with chocolate (or another sweet) in some subtle way. I’ve been wanting to visit and have brunch here for quite awhile and one Sunday morning I was finally able to drop in for a visit.
I already love Eclipse Chocolat and their crazy good ganache cupcakes so I was really curious about their other non-sweet food items. Funny …

The event is held to help benefit Share Our Strength and their mission to end childhood hunger. Our San Diego Chapter is being organized by Marie of Meandering Eats and I volunteered myself to bake up some goodies for the event! Many San Diego bloggers will be baking for the event and it’s the perfect opportunity to help …

naked pizza / pacific beach – san diego, ca

When I first saw “Naked Pizza” I had bad thoughts about it. As in, “the pizza isn’t wearing clothes?” thoughts. Naughty.
But now that I’ve actually visited Naked Pizza and seen what it’s all about, I get it. Naked Pizza is all natural pizza, not naughty pizza. There are no weird chemicals, no freaky preservatives and no strange processed stuff in their food. Their crust is made from 10 grains, including oats, brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa, amaranth, teff, spelt, tapioca, and …

extraordinary desserts / banker’s hill | san diego, ca

Extraordinary Desserts is one of those indulgent kind of places. You “ooh” and “ahh” over their selection of beautiful looking desserts and pastries, have a bit of tea, and relax for a bit. It’s one place near the city that’s also actually open late (unlike many other places around town) and serves well as a good late night spot. The original location still has a really long line at night that snakes around outside while the Little Italy location is …

side street thai kitchen / north park | san diego, ca

Why yes, it’s another review for a restaurant in North Park! This time my mission was to introduce Jake and the kids to “real” Thai food and we hit up Side Street Thai Kitchen. Jake’s only previous experience with Thai food was at ra-ka-de-ka which I did not consider to be “real” Thai food. If you only have 3 levels of heat available, then sorry, you’re not real Thai food.
After looking over the menu for a bit, we all decided …
