pink’s hot dogs | valley center

This is my last Harrah’s Rincon post! It probably seems like I’m some kind of spokesman for them now but I’m not. I just wanted to see what it would be like to have all of our meals at Harrah’s....

seasons 52 | downtown san diego

Recently I was invited to a blogger dinner at Seasons 52 at The Headquarters in Downtown San Diego. It’s that cool spot right next to Seaport Village if you aren’t familiar with the Headquarters! Jake was my date that evening...

blue ribbon fried chicken + shake shack in vegas

I was really on the fence about trying Shake Shack. I thought the only location was on the Strip at the NY NY Casino and I had very, very little desire to head all the way down the Strip just...

Costco. The land of the cheap date. Assuming your date likes hot dogs. Or pizza. And likes sitting near parking lots. Actually, these days there are more options than just the normal $1.50 hot dog + drink special. You can...

fig tree cafe / hillcrest

The Fig Tree Cafe that I recently visited is actually one of three separate locations here in San Diego. Johan Engman, also the proprietor of Cafe Cantata, started the first restaurant in Pacific Beach and has since branched out to two additional plots in Hillcrest (2011) and Liberty Station (2013). Originally intended to be destination for brunch, the two newer locations now offer dinner in addition to the relaxed late Sunday breakfasts that we San Diegans love so much. I adore brunch like a hobbit craving “elevenses,” though, so when I was invited out for a tasting, I knew that I had to swing by on a weekend morning to try it out.

cracker barrel + a tiny church in yuma, az

A spontaneous boyfriend and low gas prices prompted a mini road trip last month to Yuma, AZ. Why Yuma and why Arizona, you might ask? Mostly it was so I could finally try Cracker Barrel, a chain “down home cooking”...

blaze pizza

Some PR peeps for Blaze Pizza sent me some coupons forever ago to try it out the pizza here and I finally got around to it. There’s a location up in far away Carlsbad, one in Encinitas and a newer...

louisiana fried chicken and waffles

Okay, folks. Time for some eats from a part of town you probably don’t head to very often: Logan Heights! I had a coupon in the Entertainment 2015 book for a little spot called Louisiana Fried Chicken. I found out this place is part of a franchise of a larger fast food chain. Apparently Louisiana Fried Chicken is all over LA but I had never heard of it before. We have one lonely little location in San Diego right off National Ave and the 5. It’s right on the border into Logan Heights and quite close to the 32nd Street Naval Base.
