Sambazon Acai Cafe (Encinitas)

One of our friends introduced us to the Sambazon acai drink a while back and we’ve been somewhat obsessed with it ever since. Costco, our usual supplier has it most of the time. But it hasn’t been available lately. What would I do without my new crush, the superberry acai. I remember hearing about an actual Sambazon store located in Encinitas. An unsuccessful Sambazon haul at Costco prompted us to make a trip to Encinitas to seek out our elusive drink. Surely we wouldn’t strike out there.   DSC_0627

Upon entering we noticed a bigger selection than we’ve seen at big chain stores.…

The Great Thai BBQ – National City

The Great Thai BBQ – National City

Finally some legit Thai food in the South Bay!  The Great Thai BBQ is National City’s latest Thai restaurant to open.  Ever since moving South to CV, we’ve been craving the great Thai menus we used to be near: Sab-e-lee (Linda Vista), J&T Thai Street Food (near USD), Amarin Thai (Hillcrest), or Taste of Thai (Del Mar).

So, check this out.  A HUGE Thai Iced Tea!  Better yet, it was really good in flavor and the perfect sweetness to half/half ratio.  I’d definitely order again and again.

This was their version of Tom Yum soup (a popular Thai soup that combines both sour savory).  …

After my friends and I attended the D6 Night Market a few months ago, I guess we weren’t done eating yet. My strategic stomach space planning didn’t factor in an extra food stop. Here I thought I was the crazed foodie. My fellow food loving peoples wanted to stop by T-Pop Desserts & More for, well…more. They were taking me somewhere I had never been before but had heard a lot about. The pictures looked great from what I saw in other reviews, so in the very least it would make for a good presentation.…

Kyoto Japanese Market – Poke Bowls

Kyoto Japanese Market – Poke Bowls

IMG_5735

Kyoto Gift & Food is a Japanese Market located just West of the 805 freeway in National City, CA.  It took us awhile to find this place because it’s touted more as a market, rather than an eatery.  However, I’d say it should be known for both.

Just inside the market there is a small room in the back which houses their sushi production.  The market is run by a nice Japanese “mom and pop”.  Inside looks like a market you might find on the Island of Maui, with lots of traditional Japanese foods, snacks, and of course sushi.…

Happy 4th of July weekend! Hope everyone enjoys it and gets to do something fun! Speaking of fun, Michael and I attended a Wine and Beer Tasting at the Welk Resorts up in Escondido last week. While we aren’t huge drinkers as you may know, that never stops us from enjoying a carefully planned menu and appreciating the pairings.

This event was unique in that we were invited to spend the night at the resort. It was the first time I had ever stepped foot on the property while Michael had come here years ago.…
