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

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 …

It’s been awhile since I’ve been to this spot – in fact, it’s been long enough that they’ve changed the name! Bistro Kaz used to be known as Ristorante Kaz. It’s in the same spot but they’ve got a nice big sign now instead of before… when they basically had no sign at all. 
I was getting together with Laura for dinner before I left on my trip to the east coast. She had just gotten back from her summer trip …

manna bbq

I had a hankering for some Korean BBQ recently and decided it was finally time to go and check out Manna BBQ in Mira Mesa. Manna BBQ took over the old Pizza Hut restaurant in Mira Mesa, across the street from the Target. Pizza Hut moved into a smaller location in the adjacent lot so you don’t have to mourn their loss (heh heh).

We went to Manna BBQ on a Saturday evening and only had to wait a few minutes …

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 …
