south bay food crawl

Very recently Jake, T and I went on a South Bay Food Crawl hosted by CC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High. Jinxi of Jinxi Eats + S joined us on the crawl as well. We explored a few spots in the South Bay and had a great time trying out some new foods!
Stop #1: Birria de Res

Our first stop was at a place down near Imperial Beach called Fernandez Restaurant and Catering. The restaurant looks like it’s on the bottom floor …

el rodeo mexican food / city heights

One afternoon Jake and I were running around doing a few errands and needed a quick bite to eat. The first place we tried to go wasn’t open (a new place on University Ave. called Happy Rooster – how awesome is that name?) and Jake picked this second spot – a Mexican place on El Cajon Blvd. called El Rodeo Mexican Food.

It’s one of the many places that line El Cajon Blvd. and is pretty close to Hoover High School. …

taco bus / tampa, fl

Our flight landed in Tampa at about 10:30PM. Jake and I were still on West Coast time so we were still pretty awake despite the long plane ride across the country. Chris, our friend and host extraordinaire for the week, took us to the first pit spot of the entire trip. He took us native San Diegans to a Mexican restaurant! Chris said this was probably the best Mexican place in town and it’s a little different from anything we …

My original interest in Romesco Mexiterranean Bistro was that I had seen them on Eater 38 San Diego list. And then I saw a coupon deal for them on LivingSocial (or something similar) which I bought and Jake, S. and I went for dinner one evening in late December. I didn’t have my regular camera with me at the time, only my iPhone!

el indio mexican restaurant / mission hills – san diego, ca

Jake and I had been thinking about/trying to go to El Indio for awhile before we finally made it in last month. We’ve been driven off by either no parking or frightened of the long line we saw inside but once we finally made it in, we got the scoop on the place and I think we could manage to make it in more often when the urge strikes.

They have indoor and outdoor seating and we opted to sit inside …

[revisit] manny’s tj tacos
November 13th, 2013 Mary, San Diego County mary 4 Comments

Manny’s “TJ” Taco’s used have a cart/business down in Normal Heights back in the day. Jake and I discovered it and took our friend, Chris, there on his first visit out here. The next year Manny’s was kicked out of their spot and moved to a full-time catering business. Occasionally, Manny’s “TJ” Taco’s will do public events around town to sell tacos and we had not seen him out and about in quite awhile. But recently, by the luck of the …

birthday goodies! [free birthday stuff, part one]

I’m going to do the free birthday stuff over a few posts this time to break it all instead of hitting you with it all at once. Cool? Cool.
Today’s focus will be on the “fast food/take out” version of the freebies.
