George’s at the Cove: Ocean Terrace – La Jolla

George’s at the Cove: Ocean Terrace – La Jolla

George’s at the Cove: Ocean Terrace has been one of my favorite spots to take people from out of town looking to splurge on a nicer meal with a killer view. I’m sad to report it has been quite a while since I last visited. I think my absence coincides with the dismay I felt when I found out they added surcharges for restaurant week items years ago. It was one of the first ones, if not the first one I remember ever doing that. But much like my Wendy’s ban of 10+ years, it was time to let it go.…

Tigris Mediterranean Grille – Kearny Mesa, San Diego

Tigris Mediterranean Grille – Kearny Mesa, San Diego

IMG_8161

So Jorgina and I stumbled onto Tigris Mediterranean Grille the other week after a quick trip to her dentist in Kearny Mesa.  It’s just West of the 15 Fwy off of Clairemont Mesa Dr. and Overland Ave.  The parking lot in the shopping center was a bit dense, but luckily we found one before the lunch rush.

Inside we were happy to find a quick service Mediterranean grill where you can watch the action of them preparing your food.

At the end of the line, you will find a couple cashiers to take your order and their full menu just overhead.…

Happy New Year! I haven’t made any New Year’s resolutions this year that I would probably eventually give up on, so instead I’ll make a wish. I wish to eat just as many or more amazing things this year as I did last. I also want to find things I haven’t gotten a chance to discover or try yet. Here’s to a great 2016 all!

There was a time Michael and I went to The Original Sab-E-Lee at the original location across the street almost every week.  Okay, maybe it seemed like every week but we went a lot.…

The Halal Guys – Costa Mesa

The Halal Guys – Costa Mesa

So, I got pretty excited when I heard The Halal Guys was opening up shop in SoCal!  Our friend Kirbie tipped us off here.

Anyhow, The Halal Guys is a special memory for my wife and I because it was the very first place we ever ate in NYC in 2003.

We had just flown over, but coming from the West Coast, it was really late and almost midnight by the time we arrived at our hotel.  Luckily for us, we looked down and quickly noticed a snaking queue to a food cart.  …

Cafasso Meatball Company – San Diego

Whhhhhheeeeeewwwwww! That is the sound of me dusting off this many month old post. It has been sitting in drafts for far too long. I don’t recall why we were up in the area because I rarely venture outside my zone, but Michael and I made it out to Cafasso Meatball Company many moons ago. It doesn’t normally look like that…I think. By now the construction should be done.

We opted for a family meal that came with a salad, garlic bread, meatballs, and ravioli. The salad was your standard green salad.…

San Francisco Food Crawl

San Francisco Food Crawl

Tis the season and we haven’t posted in a looooong time.  But we’re back with another fun filled installment of San Diego Food dot neat! I ventured into San Francisco about a month ago with Anh and we decided we would make the trip worth our while. Once our brunch destination was set up with some friends at Mission Beach Cafe, our next task was to see how many places were within walking distance we could tackle. Since we were walking it all off, the act of stuffing our selves silly did not phase us (in the psychological sense).…

The Safehouse (North Park)

A little reminder, we are running a McDonald’s giveaway so don’t forget to enter! Onto our review! Need a dash of nostalgia? The Safehouse just might be that place if you are a video game nerd like me. Located in North Park, their focus is on ramen, local beer, and of course the overall fun atmosphere.

You read that right. NINTENDO 64!

I spy a Nintendo 64 in the corner. Depending on how you look at it, we were or weren’t in luck because the Chargers game was on. Michael was trying to avoid watching/hearing what was going on because he was recording it at home.…

FREE McDonald’s GIVEAWAY and New Chef Creations

FREE McDonald’s GIVEAWAY and New Chef Creations

IMG_1367

So we’ve got a special free McDonald’s GIVEAWAY at the end of this post.

I’ll be honest.  I typically go to McDonald’s for a only a few things… an egg mcmuffin, chicken nuggets, happy meals, fries, or a mocha frappe.  What you won’t typically see me getting is a burger here.

So, I was intrigued when McDonald’s invited us to taste their new Chef Crafted sandwiches.

You simply start with a meat (chicken or burger), choose your bun, and layer in 1 of 3 flavor choices.

I decided to try two sandwiches.  …
