Casa de Reyes (Revisit for Brunch) – Old Town San Diego

Casa de Reyes (Revisit for Brunch) – Old Town San Diego

We were recently invited by Casa de Reyes in Old Town San Diego to try out their new Sunday brunch options.  It is served from 9am to 12pm. (Note, Jady had previously visited Casa de Reyes.  Her post can be found here.)

If you’ve never visited Old Town San Diego, I highly suggest that you do.  Old Town San Diego retains some historic San Diego buildings and marks the beginning to our rich modern California history in 1769.  Furthermore, it’s nice and festive a lot of the time with celebrations occurring regularly.  …

Big Front Door – North Park

Like any good, red-blooded American, after Thanksgiving is celebrated I crave a big, hearty turkey sandwich. A sandwich that celebrates all the great ingredients that made the dinner what it was. My hunt lead me to Big Front Door, a specialty sandwich shop in North Park known for their gourmet creations on bread.

Tea Station Revisit (Rolando)

Tea Station Revisit (Rolando)

A few months back Anh and I checked out the new Tea Station out by San Diego State.  You can read about our experience here.  There were a few things that we felt needed a little improvement during our first visit, but overall the food and drinks tasted the same as the other Tea Station in Kearny Mesa.  We wanted to see if any of these things improved after being in business for a little longer.

Thanksgiving for Three

Thanksgiving for Three

Thanksgiving is arguably the biggest day of the year in the food community. It is an opportunity to share a delicious, decadent, indulgent meal with the people we love ; to consider our blessings and take time to appreciate them.
