October 23rd, 2011La Mesa, Mary, San Diego Countymary 5 Comments

I’m starting off my birthday week by finally writing about Jake’s birthday dinner from earlier this month!
For Jake’s birthday, his mom, Carin, took us out to a barbecue place called West Coast BBQ that she had recently visited and wanted us all to try. A night of barbeque for us!

Jake and I shared the “BBQ Feast for 2″ dinner.

The dinner consists of …

two for the road food truck / san diego, ca

More food truck visits!
I’ve taken a liking to the food truck thing, if you can’t tell.
Next up – a visit to Two for the Road! Why did I decide to start visiting this food truck? Well, mostly because it’s comes sort of close to my work and because of this thing on their menu called “Cap N’ Crunch Crab Cakes”. Whaaaat? Oh yeah!

tasty things in life: shrimp po’ boy from devilicious food truck
October 19th, 2011Mary, tasty things in lifemary 5 Comments

On a recent visit to the Devilicious food truck, they had some new offerings, including a Pork Schnitzel sandwich and a Shrimp Po’ boy Sandwich. I originally wanted to get the Pork Schnitzel, but the guy ahead of me ordered the last one and so I “settled” for the Shrimp Po’ boy. Boy oh boy I’m glad I settled!

The thing I love about the food from Devilicious is the attention to detail paid for the food they make. They use …

Eat at Recess is apart of San Diego’s ever growing Food Truck scene, offering up certified humane food as well as organic and local ingredients.

DTM Sandwiches / La Mesa – San Diego, CA
October 14th, 2011La Mesa, Mary, San Diego Countymary 6 Comments

My Long Beach posting made me forget that I had like, other posts to do, since this visit to DTM (Damn the Man!) Sandwiches occurred right after the Blackout! I remember this in particular because when Jake and I dropped into DTM (Damn the Man!), Jake asked the workers how the store was affected by the blackout. They had lost a bunch of product but were luckily insured to cover the costs of the lost food. I remember thinking at …

tasty things in life: tortilla soup from islands

Sometimes for lunch, I just want something simple and I don’t want anything from the office kitchen. When I want some warm and comforting and on the cheap, I go to Islands and get a bowl of their Tortilla Soup.

[Chicken & fresh vegetables, topped w/jack cheese, avocado & tortilla strips]
For $3 and change you get this bowl of warm goodness. It’s got cheese, tortilla strips and bites of avocado and tons of chicken. It’s just a little spicy – not …

the lincoln room / gaslamp ~ downtown – san diego, ca

I first heard about the Lincoln Room from a post Darlene of My Burning Kitchen wrote about their $5 Happy Hour. $5? Presidential themed? Pennies on the table? Log cabin feel? I’m so there.

I went with a few of my friends (Stacey, Heather, Laura and one of Stacey’s co-workers) to check out their happy hour and we were impressed with the decor and happy to check out their happy hour menu. It’s proximity to Horton Plaza (just across the street!) …

super fries / downtown – san diego, ca
October 5th, 2011Downtown, Mary, San Diego Countymary 4 Comments

I went to San Diego High school back when it had open campus for lunch. There were times where we’d take off into Downtown to grab something to eat – usually at the Great Wall for $.99 cent Chinese items – and other times where we’d head to Horton Plaza.
Back then they had a place called Boardwalk Fries where you could get a cup of freshly made, skin-on french fries drenched in cheese. I remember thinking it was the bestest …
