fair foods!
June 27th, 2011etc, Marymary 4 Comments

I’m going to the fair tomorrow! Have you already been? What were your favorite foods?
The deep fried kool-aid was recommended to me as well as a grilled caesar salad. Both sound yummy! I’ve been looking at this food map of the fair and I just spotted “Deep Fried Reese’s”. I think I might be in trouble.

surf rider pizza cafe / ocean beach – san diego, ca

I hardly ever go to Ocean Beach. It’s far, it’s hard to park and often times its crowded. But, the allure of trying a new pizza place overwhelmed me and I caved in and bought a coupon from LivingSocial to check it out.
Jake and I took the kids here after we dropped off Chris at the airport last month. It was kind of a blustery day so we ate inside on these tiny round tables. They have a little patio …

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Gary of Gary’s Seasoning to inquire if I’d like to try his line of all purpose seasonings. I agreed and was sent a bottle of each of his seasoning blends: Original, Hot for Mama and Too Hot for Mama. My dad totally loves this stuff. He’s used about half of the jar of the Original blend already and uses it on a variety of things – from BBQ, to collard greens and …

the tasty things in life: buffalo chicken wings from rosaria pizza

This week’s tasty thing in life are these buffalo chicken wings from Rosaria Pizza in Mission Beach.

Almost every time we go to Rosaria Pizza now I want to order these buffalo chicken wings. They are crispy and a slight crunch on the outside, meaty, juicy and just spicy enough. They aren’t super spicy but still needs a dunk in some cooling sauce. It leaves a slight burn inside your mouth, but nothing that hurts (which is my preference). I love …

babycakes / hillcrest – san diego, ca

I’m always interested in trying out a new cupcake place in the hopes of finding that “perfect cupcake”. Maybe there is no such thing but it’s fun to go on the journey and see how different shops do cupcakes!
Jake, the kids and I were in Hillcrest one evening and after dinner we walked over to Babycakes to get some dessert. Babycakes has a bakery area on one side and a bar on the other side of the shop with outdoor …

world’s oldest operating mcdonald’s / downey – los angeles, ca

This is my 7th and final day of a week’s long worth of Eating in LA posts! This post cheats a little though. I’m sure you’ll forgive me.
When I was with Jake and Chris and we were on our way to Porto’s, we spotted this sign in the distance:

We joked about their only being one arch and how it was probably some rip off on McDonald’s until we got closer and realized, “Holy crap, it is a McDonald’s!”

We vowed to …

casa bianca pizza pie / eagle rock | los angeles, ca

Oh yes. Day 6!
Alyssa & J gave me the option of picking where I wanted to go for dinner. They suggested 3 different options and I chose Casa Bianca Pizza Pie which is not too far from their house. Alyssa called ahead for seating and they told us the wait would be 40 minutes. Imagine our surprise when we got there and were told it would be another 30 minutes until we could be seated. Unhappy.
We finally got a table …

canelé / atwater village | los angeles, ca

Now we’re fast forwarding to places I went last weekend when I went to visit Alyssa in LA (aka Day 5 of Eating in LA). I drove up Saturday morning since Friday night traffic is killer. Driving up to LA Saturday morning was much more tolerable (until I hit pockets of traffic) and I made good time (about 2 hours). Alyssa and I headed out for breakfast upon my arrival. Alyssa was a little hesitant about coming here for breakfast …
