The Original Sab-E-Lee (Rancho Penasquitos)

I recently got to check out the recently-opened Original Sab-E-Lee location in Rancho Penasquitos with some awesome people: Kirbie and DH, CC, and Carol. I love eating with food bloggers because everybody pulls out a camera as soon as the food arrives! And I don’t feel any pressure from dining companions to “hurry up and [...]

The Original Sab-E-Lee

Several people have recommended The Original Sab-E-Lee to S and me, especially after hearing my raves about Koon Thai Kitchen. We decided to go check it out! The restaurant is kind of a hole-in-the-wall place, with just three or four tables. According to one of my friends, they have a whole other seating area in [...]

Koon Thai Kitchen revisit

S and I previously visited Koon Thai Kitchen last month and loved it. We went back to try a few other dinner items, and I thought I’d share my experience here. Last time, we ordered a pork belly/BBQ pork rice plate, and the pad see ew, and really enjoyed both dishes. This time, S was [...]

Koon Thai Kitchen

Bringing you a post from the cell phone camera today.. S and I went to dinner straight from work, and I didn’t have my camera with me. I was craving Thai food after work one day, and S says his friend just told him about this place. I haven’t been too impressed with Thai restaurants [...]

[SD Pacific Beach] Second Narraya visit

The first time I visited Narraya, it was just SK and me, and we each ordered our own dish.  I visited again with a group of six this time, and I was excited to try more dishes from their rather extensive menu. Many of the appetizers had pretty creative names, such as Little Mermaid, Cinderella, [...]

[SD Pacific Beach] In search of Thai food: Narraya

Berkeley had an abundance of Thai restaurants.  Overabundance, perhaps.  Less than 5 minutes walking from my apartment were Thai Noodle and Bangkok Noodle.  Some other favorites were Ruen Pair and Da Nang on San Pablo Ave.  And there were so many more that I had bookmarked but did not get a chance to visit before [...]

Da Nang Krungthep Thai Cuisine (Albany)

I was introduced this place with my Thai friend, so I had pretty high expectations. She said that the stewed pork leg here tastes just like home – which got me really excited because I love pork leg. Anyway, Da Nang Krungthep (I’ll just call it Da Nang for short) is located at the intersection [...]

So I finally got the rest of my food pics from my camera.. Hodad’s: I’ve heard of this place even before I landed in SD, so I had quite a bit of expectations going in. The restaurant is fairly small, and its walls are lined with (mostly custom) license plates from just about every state. [...]

Sawasdee Thai Restaurant

**Wrote this review a while ago, but S hadn’t given me photos from the evening until now… I really enjoyed this place, it’s been voted the best Thai place in Indy’s Best of the Triangle, and it has awesome reviews on Yelp, so if you’re nearby, give it a try! Also, sorry for the blurry [...]
