the grove grinder

The Grove Grinder is one of those little places we’ve passed by so many times without ever actually going in. One recent weekend it was finally time for us to check out this little building and see what it was all about.

The Grove Grinder is across the street from the GTM store and about a stone’s throw away from the Giant Lemon. You can see it on a side street if you’re driving up Broadway towards the lemon. It looks …

new york on rye
April 17th, 2015 Mary, Miramar, San Diego County mary 6 Comments

New York on Rye is a new deli shop that opened up in Miramar. New York on Rye originally started as just a food truck and has now expanded into their own space in addition to the food truck. They opened up just a few weeks ago in a spot that has been quite a few different iterations of deli’s (Top Bun, The Gourmet Bagger, Bombastic Sandwiches). Maybe this one will finally stick?
Minion, Matt and I visited New York on Rye …

college sub shop

Over the weekend, Jake and I needed a little grub before we headed over to T’s baseball game (he recently made the varsity squad! Go T!).
I flipped through my Entertainment Coupon book to find something of interest in the area. We were headed out for burgers for San Diego Burger Week in the evening and wanted something a little lighter for lunch. I decided to check out the College Sub Shop. 

College Sub Shop is located off El Cajon Blvd. near …

mamma lina’s / mira mesa – san diego, ca

I last wrote about Mamma Lina’s back in 2009 – man, that was like FIVE years ago! I found this place while I was still at my old job and now that my current job moved closer to Sorrento Valley, Mamma Lina’s has been back in my regular lunch rotation. Things have change a bit recently.
There used to be this huge hedge that made it hard to see the deli:

pauly’s pizza joint / miramar – san diego, ca

Last week was Jake and I’s 7th Anniversary! Jake had to work on the evening of our actual anniversary so we weren’t planning on celebrating until later in the week but I managed to get him to come and have lunch with me on the day of. He was late in coming by to get me and I was starting to get REALLY cranky pants on him because the HUNGER was consuming all of the my thoughts.
Since I knew I …

tip top meats / carlsbad – san diego, ca

Other bloggers are doing like “Best of 2013!” posts, but not me. We are just chugging right along with more reviews here like a whole new year isn’t happening tomorrow.
If I were to do one of those Best of! posts, this breakfast might actually make the list. So we’re ending the year on a high note, at least! Stacey alerted me to this most awesome of breakfast specials over at Tip Top Meats in Carlsbad, CA. I used to be …

firehouse subs / sports arena – san diego, ca

I was invited recently to go and check out Firehouse Subs, a sandwich shop that’s apart of a larger nationwide chain. The cool thing about Firehouse Subs is how much they give back to the community and their support of local firehouses.

For instance, you can purchase one of these used pickle buckets for $2. All proceeds benefit the Firehouse Subs Public Safety, whose  goal is to provide funding, life-saving equipment, disaster assistance and educational opportunities for first responders and public …
