House of Khan (Pop up)

House of Khan (Pop up)

I’ve been waiting a while for the pop up restaurants to come to San Diego with more frequency.  So when this opportunity came up we couldn’t pass it by!  As the sheet below mentions this was located at California Kebab right by San Diego State.  On these Saturday’s the shop operates as House of Khan and not California Kebab.  There’s only room for one chef in the kitchen at a time!  :)  Also, it’s only here until the end of August so if you want in you better save a spot!

The menu is pretty simple and they only serve one rotating plate every Saturday.  …

Chamorro Grill (Grantville)

Chamorro Grill (Grantville)

To be precise, it’s not really Hawaiian cuisine, but Guamanian or Chamorro. I was a bit intrigued to try the Island style dishes, which is my first time having Guamanian food.

It is located at the very corner of a strip mall, but after we arrived, we saw a few groups of people coming in for lunch.


It has a completely different menu from what you normally encounter at “L&L” or other Hawaiian places. It took me a while to study the menu, and decide what I was going to get.  …

Zodiac in Neiman Marcus

Zodiac in Neiman Marcus

If you have ever been to Fashion Valley, I’m sure you’ve walked through Neiman’s, at the very least because of the parking situation. I bet most of you didn’t know that there is a lunch restaurant tucked in by the home and cookware section that is refined and full of flavor (as you would imagine a Neiman restaurant would be).


Here is just a look at the table setting that is set out in front of you. You have your bread, but not just any dinner roll, a light, fluffy, buttery  Popover.…

The Soul Food Festival

The Soul Food Festival

When I think of the food in the South, particularly food I had in “Bama”, all I would think about are mashed potatoes, sweet corn, mac & cheese, beans, corn bread, slow cooked meat and my favorite–sweet tea. My host mom used to cook me home style southern food all the time. At that time I was still in high school, so I didn’t have much of a chance to eat out. Occasionally, we would have barbecue too.

Therefore, I was delighted to be invited to the 2nd Annual San Diego Soul Food Festival 2012 to have some barbecue among other things.…

Con Pane Rustic Breads & Cafe (Liberty Station)

Con Pane Rustic Breads & Cafe (Liberty Station)


Although Michael and Darren frequent the Liberty Station shopping area near Point Loma, I have never been.  This was my first time was to Con Pane and it was a perfect sunny San Diego day to go out for lunch.

When we arrived, there was a small line of people waiting to get their lunch.


I studied every item on the menu closely, and I decided on the Roasted Turkey Sandwich. Oh, but wait, it’s not just deciding which sandwich you want. It’s also choosing what kind of bread you would like for your sandwich to be made of.…

Dave and Buster’s New Summer Menu and Games

Dave and Buster’s New Summer Menu and Games

 

Sooo… I was nominated to write this post because apparently, I’m only a few people left in America who has not been to Dave and Buster’s (maybe TLC can do a show on that). If you are one of the few as well, you are in good company, if you aren’t ,well, you get to read this post like it’s your first time (Yay!).

In honor of summer Dave and Buster’s debuted a new summer menu (complete with drinks) with 10 new games.

Drinks

To start our Dave and Buster’s adventure we were given 4 drinks, which, in theory would mean a drink a person, however, I somehow ended up with 3 drinks by the end of dinner.…

Tuesday Taste of Del Mar Fair (Del Mar!)

Tuesday Taste of Del Mar Fair (Del Mar!)

Oh the fair!  One can’t live without this old pastime.  I’d never gone  for Tuesday Taste of the Fair before so this was the year Anh and I got to sample things abound…or so we thought!  Anh begrudgingly helped me map out our eating destinations because efficiency in high concentration crowds is my preferred eating methodology at an event such as this.  I thought this was a great idea.  That is until we actually got to these places to sample things.  I wish I would have taken pictures, but alas, I guess they were not picture worthy. …

San Diego Soul Food Festival 2012

You probably do not know that I actually lived in Alabama for a year as an exchange student before I came to study in California. Since then I haven’t gone back to visit my host family for a long time, so I was quite curious when Jessica from GELA invited us to the 2nd Annual San Diego Soul Food Festival hosted by A-List Productions.

It is going to happen this Saturday July 7, 2012 at the Old Practice Field at Qualcomm Stadium. There are going to be many exciting restaurants and bars, such as PB’s Tavern, Hunter Steakhouse, Playa Grill & Margarita Bar, Cabo Cantina, Dash Burger, Heineken beer and more.…
