werewolf american pub / downtown san diego
October 21st, 2014 Downtown, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 8 Comments

Jake’s birthday is approximately 20 days before mine. We don’t always celebrate on his actual birthday though since S’s birthday is on the 2nd and he doesn’t want to steal his thunder. Instead we celebrated after his actual day. I made the whole thing a “Surprise! Woohoo!” evening and didn’t tell him where we were going. Jake’s mom graciously dropped us off Downtown as I had arranged transport home through Blacklane. Our first stop: dinner at Werewolf American Pub.

I didn’t …

borrego springs / salton sea / mount laguna

Getting around to Part 2 of our little weekend trip out to the desert! You can refresh your memory with Borrego Springs Part 1 over here, if you’d like to. Don’t worry, I’ll wait.

After grabbing lunch, visiting “The Mall” and checking into our hotel, Jake and I decided to drive out to visit the Salton Sea. Neither of us had ever been and we were curious what it was like. It’s about a half hour drive away from Borrego Springs, down a winding two lane road in the desert.

nessy burgers / fallbrook
October 14th, 2014 Fallbrook, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 8 Comments

On the way back home from Jake’s sister’s house in Temecula one recent weekend, we stopped for a little grub in Fallbrook. I had heard about Nessy Burgers awhile ago but they seemed to close early and Jake and I hadn’t managed to visit. Jake’s sister recommended the spot and we decided it was time to check out Nessy Burgers.

Nessy Burgers used to be in a little shack right next to the gas station off the I-15 and SR-76. They were …

company pub & kitchen revisit
October 2nd, 2014 Mary, Poway, San Diego County Mary Desjean 4 Comments

My last visit to Company Pub & Kitchen was back in 2012. I wasn’t really wowed by it back then, but my dad had a group deal for the place and he took me out to dinner here. It was actually a really nice evening and we sat on the patio. If I had remembered/known about the patio we could have brought Maya with us since they are dog friendly. Too bad!

I was flipping through the … table advertiser/drink list/omg …

umami burger / hermosa beach

After the Crave Expo, we realized we were in Los Angeles. Just before 5PM… at the height of the dreaded rush hour. A peek at Google maps confirmed that traffic was horrendous and we were pretty much stuck… so Jake decided to just drive. I eventually stopped looking at Google maps and tried to just “enjoy the ride” and not let my controlling side take over. We eventually ended up in Venice Beach and then hit the 101 and started …

south cali steak burger bar / chula vista
August 1st, 2014 Cheap Eats, Chula Vista, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 8 Comments

Last weekend before we went to go see Gabriel Iglesias in The Fluffy Movie, we stopped by this place in Chula Vista for a little lunch first. It’s called South Cali Steak Burger Bar.

It’s not much to look at from the outside and I’m sure you’d easily bypass this place just driving by on the road. There are three parking spots in the front.

Inside there’s about 9 tables, one is a big table for larger groups (the one behind Jake …

eureka! burgers / la jolla utc – san diego, ca
June 18th, 2014 La Jolla, Mary, San Diego County, UTC Mary Desjean 8 Comments

I’ve been to Eureka! Burgers before – but never actually had a burger there. I’ve tried the salads and appetizers and I felt it was high time that I actually try one of their burgers. I was curious how it stacked up to the many, many other burger places we have here in San Diego.

On my first visit by my lonesome self (I don’t mind dining alone at restaurants – this has never bothered me …

el rey de las fritas / little havana – miami, fl
June 4th, 2014 Florida, Mary, Road Trips Mary Desjean 4 Comments

I only have a few Florida related posts left, so let me get to another one before I forget all about what Florida was like!
After cruising around Key West in the humid warm weather, we left the Keys and traveled up to Miami. I really wanted to have lunch in Miami and picked a place in Little Havana called El Rey de las Fritas.

I read about fritas on Yelp and after doing a Google search and they sounded interesting enough. …
