February 1st, 2016 Downtown, Mary, San Diego County mary 6 Comments

Last week I was invited to come and check out a little preview dinner at Blush Ice Bar for the special Gaslamp Quarter Mardi Gras Celebration that is happening THIS WEEKEND on February 6th, 2016. Quite frankly I’m in shock that it’s already February. 2016 is really zooming along!

In case you don’t know about the crazy Mardi Gras Celebration, here’s a little recap. There will be a huge block party in the Gaslamp spanning about 10 blocks with 5 live stages with …

baguette bros

Every other week I find myself down in the Convoy area and this week I decided to stop by a new restaurant for a little bit of lunch. I had heard about Baguette Bros from one of my co-workers and decided to go check it out. Baguette Bros is in one of the oh-so-slightly larger lots – the same lot that houses Jeong Won Korean BBQ Buffet.

They’ve got a big “Grand Opening” banner up over the shop so it’s easy …

hae jang chon / los angeles, ca
January 8th, 2016 Koreatown, Los Angeles County, Mary mary 2 Comments

We haven’t done much traveling since Boston (and someday I’ll finish those travel posts… sigh) and I wanted to take a little day trip somewhere. Last weekend we opted to go up to Los Angeles for a foodie adventure and to do a little shopping. Jake and I have become slightly obsessed with Funko Pops and also decided to hit up a few shops looking for pops. But first… lunch at a place called Hae Jang Chon!

We’ve been into trying out …

[revisit] jeong won korean bbq buffet
December 9th, 2015 Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego County mary 4 Comments

A few weeks ago I had a serious hankering for some Korean BBQ. Jake and I talked about going someplace new but I’d been stuck on the idea of revisiting Jeong Won. Jeong Won is a little different from the other all-you-can-eat places since it’s a buffet. The buffet style allows you to choose exactly what you want to get. One just one piece of chicken to try it out? You can do that here! And I appreciate that flexibility …

wei wei asian express

Last Friday when I was heading down to Jake’s for the weekend, he asked me what I wanted to do for dinner that evening and suggested a place we’d been to quite a few times. But I was bored with that suggestion and countered by texting him with a link to a place called Wei Wei Asian Express. It was near his house and it was brand new so he relented to my suggestion. New things are always better, right?

[recipe] sesame chicken noodles + a giveaway

Last weekend Laura, Jake, T, Maya and I headed up to Julian for our annual trip to the mountains. It finally feels like fall in San Diego, hooray! A nice walk in Julian would be good since I started using a Fitbit last week – I need all the steps I can get! The only downside was there were SO MANY people with the same idea as us and the streets were pretty crowded with folks milling around or waiting …

boston – day one
October 23rd, 2015 Mary, Massachusetts, Travel mary 3 Comments

We left Rhode Island at a decent time in the morning. We hit up some grocery stores and then drove around a little before leaving to avoid some of the morning traffic in Boston. We skipped breakfast and just had a couple of snacks and made our way up to Boston. 

Our first stop was to grab some lunch near my alma mater and we stopped at a place called Mei Mei. Mei Mei originally started out as only a food …
