genghis grill / mira mesa
September 15th, 2014 Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego County Mary Desjean 12 Comments

Genghis Grill opened in Mira Mesa earlier this year. I went awhile ago with my co-workers but I wasn’t super impressed with my initial visit. Recently Laura came over so we could continue watching Downton Abbey (we’re still behind!) and grab some dinner. I suggested Genghis Grill again just to see if they had changed or there were any improvements from my last visit. Let’s see how it went!

We went for dinner on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was fairly …

the patio on lamont street / pacific beach

I was recently invited to come and check out The Patio on Lamont Street (there are actually two locations now, the other in Mission Hills). Jake was originally supposed to go with me, but he ended up having to work, so I took my parents and Maya with me.

This is a view of the patio area later in the evening when with the lights lit up. It gave the area a wonderful warmth!

There was also an …

triple lobsters at fishtales in hatfield, ma
July 29th, 2014 Mary, Massachusetts, Road Trips Mary Desjean 11 Comments

I only have a couple of Massachusetts posts left! This is one of them. For our last proper dinner in Massachusetts, on Father’s Day, my Uncle Bob wanted to take us to this place for triple lobsters. Triple lobsters for $19.99. YES. You read that correctly. Look, I have proof!

See, I wouldn’t lie to you.

Also we were in Hatfield! No, it’s no reference to the famous Hatfields and McCoy’s though honestly I thought there might be some connection until I …

rubio’s california bowl / utc

While I’ve lived in San Diego for more than a decade, I had my first fish taco when a Rubio’s opened up in the mid-90’s in my hometown of Rancho Cucamonga. Yes, that city actually exists and, no, it’s not like that movie Next Friday with Ice Cube. Well, most of it at least, but that’s a story for another time.

wings and fish / encanto
July 23rd, 2014 Cheap Eats, Encanto, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 7 Comments

Last Friday Jake and I were running some errands in the evening when I started thinking about dinner. And yet again, I was having a craving for chicken wings. We hadn’t found our “go to” spot yet and I was scoping out Yelp for ideas on places we hadn’t tried yet. We had T with us so we couldn’t do a bar (like Duck Dive) and somehow I stumbled on this place in Encanto (my old hood) called Wings and …

ss lobster ltd / fitchburg, ma
July 9th, 2014 Mary, Massachusetts, Road Trips Mary Desjean 26 Comments

One place that I love, love, love in Fitchburg, MA is this seafood place called SS Lobster Ltd. My grandparents would take me here when I visited from Boston. Memere (my grandmother) would always get the fried scallops while I usually wanted the fried clams. This place has good memories for me and my Mom wanted us to go here for dinner on a first night in Massachusetts. Like my Dad and I were going to say no to this …

southernmost beach cafe / key west, fl
May 19th, 2014 Florida, Mary, Road Trips Mary Desjean 8 Comments

Ahh, we’re finally getting the to the Key West posts! It was a long eight hour drive down to Key West from Tampa. Sarasota was about an hour away so after blunch we still had about seven hours ahead of us. Hoo boy. I didn’t do any of the driving, I just sat in the back seat and chilled out reading my books.
 
We drove through lots of swampland, which you pretty much can’t see. There’s a lot of green, then …

revisit to bud’s louisiana cafe / kearny mesa – san diego, ca
May 16th, 2014 Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 6 Comments

Taking a little break from the travel posts to write about a place Jake and I went to last week here in San Diego. I haven’t written about Bud’s Louisiana Cafe since 2009, when they were still located in Tierrasanta! I’ve been back a few times since that post but am finally doing a revisit post. Woo!
I had a strong hankering last week for some catfish… specifically some FRIED catfish. Maybe it was that week spent in the South that …
