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 [...]

Jun 022014

Recently, my best friend/roommate from college came to San Diego from the East Coast; unfortunately she was here for a conference and didn’t have much time to hang out, but we were able to have dinner together on her last night here, along with one of our other college friends. We chose Searsucker – S [...]

May 232014

Before I left for my trip to China, I was at Target running some last-minute errands and buying stuff to bring back to my family. I saw Pieology in the plaza across the street from Target and thought, “I should probably have pizza before I leave.” Haha. It was a ridiculously windy day (during the [...]

Table 926 Brunch

S and I haven’t been to a whole lot of brunch places ever since moving to San Diego. I guess we just haven’t been too impressed with most places, especially ones that get a lot of hype (e.g. The Cottage in La Jolla – sorry folks out there who are fans, but it just didn’t [...]
