bencotto + a failed dessert outing

I’ve been to Monello a couple of times but hadn’t yet tried the other restaurant, Bencotto, which is right next door. Bencotto is like the older brother restaurant. It’s a little more “fine dining” than Monello. Last Saturday Jake and I decided to sell our Padres tickets for that evening since it was just TOO HOT to go and sit in the sun for several hours. Dinner in Little Italy sounded like a way better idea. We also went early like old folks so …

patron secret dining society in san diego

Last week it was Comic Con! And Patron decided it was high to come back to San Diego for another special event: the Patron Secret Dining Society! In my email I got a little hint that Patron was heading back here and I promptly answered their question and gained myself an invitation to the dinner and the dessert party. “DESSERT PARTY!” Goodness, can you imagine? You won’t have to – just see the bottom of this post!
The invitation for the …

desserts at deli sushi and desserts
July 13th, 2015 Mary, Miramar, San Diego County mary 4 Comments

I’ve been to Deli Sushi and Desserts quite a few times now, usually for lunch breaks. I’ve gone enough times now that they know what I want to order (since I usually get the same thing – how boring of me). Not too long ago I finally tried out some of their desserts! It’s about time, really. When did I become a dessert slacker?!

summer tasting menu at vessel restaurant

Earlier this month I was invited to another media event for the Vessel Restaurant over at the Kona Kai resort hotel in Shelter Island. Jake finally got to be my date this time around! Vessel Restaurant was featuring dishes from their new summer menu and each course was paired with a local craft beer.

Hence everyone had tons of beers surrounding their place setting at the table.

I don’t usually drink this much and honestly I’m not a huge beer fan (sad, …

nomad donuts

I think you know by now that I’m kind of a donut fiend. I’ve been to many donuts shops around town and even make it a point to visit donut shops in other towns. I’m slightly wary about the “gourmet” donuts that have popped up in San Diego (for the record, I’m not a Donut Bar fan – sorry) so maybe I was a bit reluctant to try some of the newer places. I finally stopped into Nomad Donuts over …

t-pop desserts & more

At work we started to have sponsored “Ladies Lunches” since there are so few ladies that work in the office. It’s a nice way to get away from the office and to enjoy tasty treats together! Our most recent ladies lunch was at T-Pop Desserts & More. I thought they were only a dessert place but I discovered they recently added ramen and appetizers and figured it’d be a good spot to check out.

The inside of T-Pop Desserts is super cute! …

the cork and craft

Recently I was invited to go in and check out a relatively new spot up in Rancho Bernardo called The Cork and Craft. The Cork and Craft is a really unique restaurant that also houses a winery and a brewery. The restaurant came about as a way to bind all three ventures into one, making it a place to not only get a great meal but to also enjoy some local wine and craft beer!

Jake and I went in on a Friday …
