deli sushi and desserts / miramar

I’m always poking around on Yelp at lunchtime to see if anything new has popped up in my office’s area. And there was something new! A sushi place pretty close by. My cohorts and I went to check it out. It’s called Deli Sushi and Desserts.

I didn’t take a photo of the outside but it’s totally in a warehouse area with a little banner declaring it’s presence. “I’m here! I’m here!” it tries to shout, but your mind is like, …

ariana produce and cuisine / mira mesa
January 15th, 2015 Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego County mary 8 Comments

Last month CC and TC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High came up to my ‘hood to have lunch with me! I picked a tiny little spot that I had seen a few times but never dined at. I forgot to take an outside photo but this lunch spot is actually inside of a Middle Eastern market called Ariana Produce and Cuisine. The market is in a strip mall on Camino Ruiz. A 7-11 is nearby as well as Rita’s Italian Ice, …

coops west texas bbq
December 29th, 2014 Lemon Grove, Mary, San Diego County mary 5 Comments

We left for Portland on a Wednesday and we still needed a little bit of lunch for our bellies. Jake and I had both received a buy one get one free coupon for a sandwich at Coop’s West Texas BBQ for our “unbirthday” from iBirthdayClub.com. We misread it and thought it was for a free sandwich, not a BOGO, but either way it turned out fine. 

Our lunch! It had been awhile since we’d been back to Coops and we hadn’t …

qt pot / mira mesa
December 24th, 2014 Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego County mary 6 Comments

QT Pot opened in Mira Mesa earlier this year. I went for my first visit with my co-workers back in September and finally remembered to make a revisit last week to try some of their other items.

On one side of their menu it’s all hot pots! They all vary a little.

And the other side has appetizers and more “regular” Chinese food plus grilled meats on a stick! I like food on a stick.

weekday lunching at specialty’s, boudin bakery and opera cafe

It’s Monday. And I’m home sick. Hence the late and short post. I am determined to beat this cold as quickly as possible though for birthday weekend fun times. I’m going to be like Barney:

Yesssssss. That’s gonna be me!

[turkey, apple, bacon and brie sandwich / $8.99]
Minion and I went to Specialty’s Cafe recently. I was in a “I-Want-Brie-Forever-And-Ever” mood and chose this sandwich which had roasted turkey breast, bacon and brie with fire-roasted fuji apples, arugula and lemon thyme aioli …

borrego springs road trip – part one

Jake and I have headed out east two weekends in a row, one for a day trip to go apple picking (this past weekend) and the weekend before we went out to Borrego Springs for quick weekend in the desert!

Course… we had to stop for pie. I mean… duh.

They have Chicken Dinner Pie?! What? I really want to try that for some reason. Maybe next time.

On this trip we got one Dutch Apple Pie (crumb top 4 lyfe!) and a …

pizzeria mozza / downtown san diego

After we got sugared up from Frost Me Gourmet Cupcakes, we headed over to Pizzeria Mozza for some lunch. I’ve been wanting to visit Pizzeria Mozza since they opened last year, but I heard they had some trouble working out the kinks. Since they’re now listed in the Eater San Diego 38, I figured they had finally worked everything out and it was time to visit.  

Here’s their menu, which you can click to enlarge and read in it’s full glory.

food truck lunches at my urban eats and the pierogi truck
September 17th, 2014 Mary, San Diego County mary 10 Comments

Am I sick of food trucks yet? Apparently not. I visited two food trucks last week just for kicks.

The first one was My Urban Eats. My love of green made me love the look of this truck right away. And I love the font they use. I kind of feel like the chicken is eyeballing me though.

This is the menu. I believe they change things up every few months or so. Keeping it in season! The thing that caught my …
