Devilicious Food Truck

It’s been quite a while since I’ve had a food truck lunch… As I’ve mentioned in some of the previous reviews, there was a good variety of food trucks that stop by near my workplace. Lately, though, I’ve noticed that some of my old favorites are either gone or have gone down in food quality. [...]

Bao's Awesome Burgers & Sandwiches revisit

Bao’s Awesome Burgers & Sandwiches, or BABS for short, is one of my favorite “hidden gems” in San Diego. S and I really enjoy their burgers, which are a little different from a standard burger as you’ll see later in this post. It had been a while since our last visit, and when I read [...]

Bubba's Smokehouse BBQ

As you might know, S and I are obsessed with good barbeque – as in, real Southern bbq. Many friends have responded to my longing for barbeque with, “Why don’t you go to Phil’s?” And I’m not really sure how to respond, other than “Phil’s ain’t the real thing!” Seriously, though, once you’ve had real [...]

Burger Lounge (SD Burger Week)

I had meant to put this post up before Burger Week ended, but didn’t have the time =( Fortunately, Burger Lounge’s special was a regular menu item. Instead, they were simply offering their “Little Lounge Burger” with bacon for $5 (normally $5.95 for the burger, plus $1.95 for bacon). Since my first visit to Burger [...]

Carnitas' Snack Shack (SD CityBeat Burger Week)

I learned from the blog Oh-So Yummy that this week (March 7-16) is San Diego Burger Week, where various restaurants are offering $5 burger specials! The list of participating restaurants is actually pretty long, and S and I had a hard time deciding whether we wanted to try something or revisit some old favorites. One [...]

Firehouse Subs (and Giveaway!)

Recently, S and I were invited to attend a “Meet the Founder” dinner at Firehouse Subs, a fast-casual sandwich chain that started in Jacksonville, Florida and has (finally) made its way across the country to California! S and I are actually quite familiar with Firehouse Subs already – there was a store close to Duke’s [...]

Hanna's Gourmet Desserts

After our epic bloggers’ lunch at Que Huong, we had to get dessert (of course). CC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High suggested Hanna’s Gourmet, a little cafe not too far from Que Huong. I’ve read about it and was quite excited to check out this little spot. Half of the photos from this post [...]

Feb 162014

S and I have been wanting to check out Eureka!, a pub that opened in Westfield UTC about a year ago. I always lament that there aren’t many good food options in UTC, but this place looked quite promising. We actually tried to visit once previously, but the wait for a seat was too long, [...]

Ruth's Chris Steak House (Restaurant Week)

Before this January’s Restaurant Week ends, I wanted to share just one more restaurant for you to consider, especially if you love steak: Ruth’s Chris. S and I have been wanting to try it for a while, especially since some of our friends claim that it’s their favorite steak in San Diego. We’ve tried The [...]
