roadem bbq / kearny mesa
September 3rd, 2014 Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 16 Comments

Jake is actually the one who discovered this place and tried it before me – an all you can eat Korean BBQ spot over off Convoy called Roadem BBQ. He’s visited a few times and I suggested we go one recent Saturday for lunch. Korean BBQ sounded like a mighty fine idea to me.
For lunch they have three different priced menus.

Menu A is only $11.99 (click to enlarge).

Menu B is $15.99. You get two extra beefy items with this one …

cardiff crack tri tip + the miracle grill mat
September 1st, 2014 Mary, products, Recipes Mary Desjean 6 Comments

Today’s post is a bit of a two for one kind of deal – we’re trying out two products in one post today! The fine folks over at the Seaside Market in Cardiff were nice enough to send me a sample of their beautiful Cardiff Crack which is a marinated Burgundy Pepper Tri Tip.

july 4th bbq recap
July 11th, 2014 etc, Mary Mary Desjean 12 Comments

I was not feeling too great on Thursday! I caught a little bit of a summer cold. Colds in the summer time seem worse to me than colds in the winter. It’s like you’re expected to have a cold in the winter time, but in the summer? It’s all sunshine and warmth and happiness – how on earth did you get a cold?! Well, I’m not sure, but at least it’s only a “tiny” cold. I’m not bedridden or anything. …

chris’ ono grinds island grill / mission valley – san diego, ca

Jake, T and I came here shortly after I got back from Boston. I got an Entertainment Book a couple of months ago for only $5 (on tax day!) so I figured it’s about time we start using the sucker for deals! Chris’ Ono Grinds Island Grill was one of the places – but only for the location in Mission Valley (they also have a location in North Park). 

They have a couple of seats outside. One is a glass table …

new york buffalo wings & ribs / la mesa – san diego, ca

Last weekend I had a craving for some wings. I don’t know why, but lately I’ve been craving wings left and right. I also only like the “wing” part. I’ll eat a drumette if that’s all that’s left but I’d much rather eat the wing. You keep those drumettes to yourself and we’ll be good. I use Yelp a lot to find places but I always take the reviews with a grain of salt. Just because something’s popular doesn’t necessarily …

national bbq month / whiskey bbq sauce recipe
May 21st, 2014 Mary, products, Recipes Mary Desjean 6 Comments

With Memorial Day coming up this the weekend and the unofficial start of summer on the way, it’s easy to see why May has been declared National BBQ Month. The longer days and warmer weather make it the perfect time to start bringing all of your cooking outdoors. Here in San Diego we’re lucky enough to be able to grill pretty much all year, but sure is a lot nicer to grill when it’s warm outside.

I was recently given some …

valley farm bbq / spring valley, ca
April 21st, 2014 Mary, San Diego County, Spring Valley Mary Desjean 4 Comments

On a recent weekend Jake had the idea that we should head out to Valley Farm Market. Specifically he wanted to see if they had meat packages (like, a bunch of various cuts of meats for one price), though they did not. We visited the market once a long time ago without purchasing anything but we did take note that they sold BBQ inside the market…

 As well as at this little shack in the parking lot. This is where we …

tastea grill | bbq grill & sushi rolls / chula vista – san diego, ca
March 24th, 2014 Cheap Eats, Chula Vista, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 6 Comments

Over the weekend Jake and I picked up the kiddies, S and A, for a quick afternoon of movies and lunch (hello, The Muppets – which was really awesome). There’s some kind of stomach bug going around since Jake was sick last week, so was his mom, and his other son, T and these two kiddos… man, did someone put something in our water?! Anyway… after the movie we headed over to this little place in Chula Vista called Tastea …
