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 …

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 …

September 16th, 2015 Little Italy, Mary, San Diego County mary 4 Comments

It’s that time of year – San Diego Restaurant Week is here again! The day after we got back from Boston I was invited to check out Prepkitchen in Little Italy. It was a nice way to get back into the groove of being home again.

Prepkitchen is apart of the Whisknladle Hospitality group. The cool thing about going to Whisknladle or Prepkitchen for San Diego Restaurant Week is how they do it. They let you choose your own items for …

bushfire kitchen / carlsbad, ca

Up in Carlsbad, there’s a cool new restaurant called Bushfire Kitchen that’s serving up cafeteria-ish style food. It’s a similar concept to Tender Greens or new the Lemonade that’s opened up recently in San Diego (post forthcoming) – except you order your food and they deliver it to your table. Recently I was invited to come in and check out Bushfire Kitchen for myself.

Bushfire Kitchen is in the southern part of Carlsbad, around La Costa. It’s inside a shopping plaza, …

bbq’s, oak by absolut, and summer dinners on the grill

IT IS SUMMER! Just in case you had no idea. Tourists visiting San Diego the last few days might have been thinking, “What in the world? Why is it cloudy?” but us year-rounders know all about the “June Gloom”. I’m just not used to this weird new addition of “June Humidity”. It feels like nature is confused and thinks we’re on the East Coast or something.
But I digress… it is summer! And that means it’s time to cook everything OUTSIDE just …

getaway to the desert: our stay in morongo valley

We headed out to the desert on Saturday around mid-morning. There was no way I wanted to leave on a Friday before a long weekend – can you imagine the hellish traffic that would have been waiting for us?! We planned a trip out this way for a little quiet time and Jake wanted to show me around Yucca Valley. He lived there for a little while back in the 90’s and wanted to see how much had changed since …
