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 …

cueva bar

Over at Cueva Bar in University Heights, Chef Oz has a special thing going for Saturdays. He calls it “Saturday Lunching”, a time to encourage his patrons to slow down, take it easy, hang out and enjoy your friends, family and especially the food. I was recently invited in to check out the Saturday lunching menu.

The day we visited Cueva Bar was a very, very hot day – somewhere in the 90’s. It was refreshing and cool to step into …

gino’s pizzeria featuring the philadelphia sandwich co.

Gino’s Pizzeria Featuring The Philadelphia Sandwich Co. (isn’t that a mouthful) is a new spot to the Miramar area, behind the Denny’s on Miramar Road. They put together Gino’s Pizza and added the Philadelphia Sandwich Co. into the shop. The Philadelphia Sandwich Co. used to be located off Convoy Street near the Original Pancake House. Gino’s took over a place called Dino’s that served pizza and Italian sandwiches. I visited Dino’s a few times and always thought the place needed …

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” restaurant present in many states but not California. Jake and T has tried it last year when they went to Aspen so it was finally my turn. I know, it’s just a chain restaurant but I was still curious!

We rolled …

dim sum at pearl chinese / san diego

Last month I finally got to try out “sit down with the carts” dim sum for the first time with Faye of Faye’s Fork and Lynn of Oh-So-Yummy at Pearl Chinese. We met up on a Saturday and sat at a big, round table to start stuffing delicious dim sum into our mouths. Sounds like the perfect Saturday to me!

Pearl Chinese is up in Rancho Bernardo and has this beautiful pond/lake in the back area next to the Doubletree Inn. I …

pho cow cali – mira mesa

Amazingly I have never blogged about Pho Cow Cali even though I’ve been here oh so very many times. There are a few places I frequent that I never blogged about but I’m unsure why. I need to fix that, starting with this post! I honestly hadn’t been to Pho Cow Cali in awhile but last week I was craving it badly. 

[rice vermicelli with egg rolls and bbq pork / $7.35]
I actually don’t usually order Pho when I’m here, but rather …

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, …
