double standard kitchenetta
July 24th, 2015 Downtown, Mary, San Diego County mary 6 Comments

Imagine it: Sunday afternoon. Downtown. Bright, sunny, few clouds here and there. Hot. Humid. Nice day to sit outside on the patio at a new-to-you restaurant. You’ve got your dog, your boys, and an afternoon of food ahead of you! Just ignore those deep dark clouds that keep rolling in for a moment. It won’t rain, right? 
Yeah, we’ll get to that.
Last weekend I was invited to try out Double Standard Kitchenetta – a relative new joint down in Gaslamp. Previously this spot was …

bourre southern bistro

Last night Jake and I went out for a “just the two of us” dinner. Jake wanted to stay closeby, thwarting my original idea, but I picked something nearby that I had bookmarked on Yelp. It was a Southern style bistro serving creole food and the item that caught my eye on the menu was “blueberry cornbread”. Certain items catch my eye and make me want to try them immediately and that was the item for me! Off we went …

[revisit] chef john’s fish and chips

Earlier this month Jake wanted to check out a taco shop called Tacos Al Pastor over in the Lemon Grove/Spring Valley area. It was kind of in the middle of nowhere, in a tiny strip mall amongst a lot of houses. Sadly it was closed and Jake couldn’t realize the dream of trying out this tiny shop. Since I was getting to the point of no hunger return, we opted to go to a place we’d been before. A little …

el agave tequileria
April 20th, 2015 Mary, Old Town, San Diego County mary 6 Comments

Earlier this month my dad celebrated another birthday! Hooray! For his birthday, I took him and my mom out to dinner to a place I was invited to called El Agave Tequileria. El Agave Tequileria is located in Old Town (aka Tourist Land) just on the outer edges.

They have their own parking lot in the back (to the left of this photo) but I ended up parking on the street nearby.

Once you step inside, you see that the whole restaurant …

juniper & ivy

My friend Alyssa (who used to write for this blog!) recently came back to San Diego to visit with her husband, J, and her two adorable little ones. She made plans to go to Juniper & Ivy and invited me along! I’ve been interested in trying out Juniper & Ivy for so long and was glad to get the chance to hang out with my best good friend and to eat tasty delicious things.

Juniper and Ivy is one of chef …

kirin sandwich, mini donut ice cream, carnitas & pig ears + other ramblings

This will be another one of those radical random rambling posts (yes I just said radical, no I’m not stuck in the 90’s, hey I was going for alliteration). 

[the kirin]
First up! THE KIRIN. Instead of being a magical sea creature, this is actually a sandwich filled with sea creatures. Shrimp to be specific. It’s one of the newer sandwiches from Supernatural Sandwiches and it’s a Shrimp Banh Mi with Chinese sausage. Mostly you just see the shrimp in my photo but you …
