gyu-kaku japanese bbq | scripps ranch

Recently my friend Laura and I went to check out Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ over in Scripps Ranch. I’ve been wanting to check this place out for a long time! I was deterred when it initially opened because the wait was usually quite long. We visited on a Thursday evening and there was only a 5 minute wait for a table. The hostess told us about making reservations though I didn’t see the need to make one if there was only …

liberty public market | liberty station

A couple of weekends ago, Jake and I had a little afternoon to ourselves. T was off at baseball practice and we decided to see a movie (Zootopia! It was super cute!) and then head over to the Liberty Public Market for a little afternoon lunch. The market hasn’t been opened for too long but we were able to snag a parking spot pretty close to the market.

This is the front sign which faces the Corvette Diner side of Liberty …

mr bbq | fullerton
April 15th, 2016 Fullerton, Mary, Orange County Mary 6 Comments

Recently Jake, T and I headed up to Orange County for a little excursion. Jake wanted to buy a Funko Pop collectible from someone in LA who met us halfway in OC and to convince me to go along, Jake suggested we hit up a place for Korean BBQ. He let me pick the spot (as usual) and I picked Mr BBQ. Mr BBQ is rated #27 on Yelp’s Top Places to Eat in the US for 2016 and the …

pipirins | gaslamp quarter

Last weekend I was invited to try out a new restaurant that has popped up in the Gaslamp Quarter. It’s a cute little shop in the heart of Downtown called Pipirins. When Jake first heard the name of it, he thought it would be an Italian restaurant but actually it’s a Guadalajara style restaurant! 

Pipirins is only a couple of blocks away from Horton Plaza, right on Broadway.

They have lunch special portions which are a little smaller in size (4 oz …

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 …

mark’s bark bbq

On a recent Sunday, Jake wanted to check out a new BBQ place he spotted when he accidentally drove up a random side street through Normal Heights. The place? A spot called Mark’s Bark BBQ which is only open to the public on Sundays. 

The rest of the time they are a catering business called Bettina’s Custom Catering, Inc. but on Sunday’s the joint is all Mark’s. His mom works at the front and she told us that Mark puts the …
