Carnitas' Snack Shack - Del Mar

Carnitas’ Snack Shack is one of my favorite restaurants in San Diego – they certainly serve up some really delicious sandwiches and pork dishes. However, their North Park location is quite small and gets really crowded – S and I have been there at 10PM and still had to wait at least 20 minutes to order! So, when [...]

Supernatural Sandwiches

Supernatural Sandwiches has been on my radar for quite some time, especially with so many features on Eater and Zagat, as well as other blogs. They had been a farmer’s market stand in Hillcrest for a while before opening a brick-and-mortar shop on Miramar Rd. However, initially the shop’s hours were only open Monday to [...]

DiningOut San Diego’s 10th Anniversary Party – Part 2

As promised last week, here’s Part 2 of my recap of DiningOut SD’s 10th Anniversary Party, held at The Headquarters at Seaport District! I started off the evening with drinks and tacos from Puesto, and moved on to the courtyard, where several other restaurants and shops had booths set up with samples. The first one [...]

Dirty Birds (visit 2)

Well, I recently found out that one of my good friends is semi-obsessed with chicken wings… as in, she’d eat them everyday for lunch if she could (or something like that, haha). So, after discovering this, we decided to go to Dirty Birds in Pacific Beach sometime. Actually, she was with me on my first [...]

[Las Vegas] Gordon Ramsay BurGR

Another post today from my recent Vegas trip, which happens to be the last meal we had there – Gordon Ramsay BurGR, located in Planet Hollywood. You’ll probably see a huge line when you’re there, but that’s actually for parties of two, only. If you have a larger group than 2, you can go to [...]

Common Theory Public House - revisit

A few weeks ago, I visited Common Theory Public House for their grand opening – I had a really great time there, but I did not get to experience the full menu since they had a limited special menu for the grand opening weekend. S and I went back for another visit recently with some of [...]

[Las Vegas] Bouchon Bistro

Recently, S and I had a nice weekend getaway in Las Vegas with a few friends – Vegas is our favorite place for a mini-vacation, actually… it’s close enough to drive there, but it’s just far enough away that I can really take a break from the stresses of life, haha. We’ve had several “fine-dining” [...]

Rubio's, National Seafood Month, and a Giveaway!

June is National Seafood Month, and even though the month is quickly winding down (I can’t believe it’s almost time to prepare for 4th of July festivities!), seafood sustainability should always be on consumers’ minds. Recently, I was contacted by Rubio’s PR for a giveaway opportunity in honor of National Seafood Month – details for [...]

Eclipse Chocolate Bar & Bistro

I recently purchased a Travelzoo deal for Eclipse Chocolate Bar & Bistro – I’ve heard so many things about this place, and being a chocolate-lover, I definitely wanted to try it out. The deal was actually really good – $39 for any two drinks and two tasting trios, with a box of truffles to take [...]

Common Theory Public House

Common Theory Public House is a newly-opened gastropub on Convoy St – I’ve been following news of its opening on Eater San Diego, and this past weekend was their grand opening. There would be a lot of specials, so I went to check it out with S and a couple of friends. The restaurant is located in [...]
