Last Vegas post! For now! 
Our last Vegas thing was to go to this dessert restaurant called Sweets Raku that wasn’t too far from China Mama. It’s in another tiny strip mall with a very small parking lot (bleah). We ended up parking across the street in another lot. Sweets Raku is a sister restaurant to Raku, a sushi restaurant in the same area. I thought it was next door, but it was in another part of the strip mall. Sweets …

I got two more Vegas posts left in me! Actually, three, but Jake is supposed to write the other one since it’s basically his whole experience and not really mine. But that’s for the future (are you curious yet?). For now… let’s peek at more Chinese food!
I always want to eat things I can’t get at home and excellent Chinese food is something that is seriously lacking in San Diego. I didn’t even realize until recently that Las Vegas even …

Back in 2012, my friends and I went to a little place inside of a hair salon (yes, you read that right) called Great Bao. They were kicked out of the salon shortly after our visit and I’ve kept tabs on them over the years. When we decided to go to Vegas again, I tried to see if they got a new location and I was very happy to see them up and running in a proper restaurant under a …

world curry 20th anniversary

Recently I was invited to attend an anniversary dinner for World Curry in Pacific Beach. World Curry has been around for 20 years (!) serving all kinds of different curries from around the globe (very appropriate restaurant name, don’t you think?). I took Stacey as my date and we saw a few familiar faces at the event such as Lynn from oh-so yummy, Faye from Faye’s Fork, and J.S. from Sun Diego Eats! 

The restaurant was closed down for this special …

We were down in Chula Vista on Father’s Day to drop off the kiddos after going to see Jurassic World at Horton Plaza. Have you been to Horton Plaza lately? It feels a little like a ghost town these days and the movie theater is totally old school – no digital signs, no TV’s showing you ads while you stand in line for popcorn, and more importantly there’s no one else there. You pretty much get the place to yourself. …

t-pop desserts & more

At work we started to have sponsored “Ladies Lunches” since there are so few ladies that work in the office. It’s a nice way to get away from the office and to enjoy tasty treats together! Our most recent ladies lunch was at T-Pop Desserts & More. I thought they were only a dessert place but I discovered they recently added ramen and appetizers and figured it’d be a good spot to check out.

The inside of T-Pop Desserts is super cute! …

One evening last week I was over at Jake’s and he didn’t want to go out. We were going to order a pizza but then I suggested we try this little Thai place that’s only a few blocks from his house. We’ve passed it about a thousand times already and have always meant to go in but just… never really gave it serious thought before. It looked like a cute little place and I got him to agree (even though I think he really wanted that pizza). The Thai place is called Tuk Tuk Thai and I used Yelp to place a to-go order for us.
