Chocolate is awesome.  Let’s just get that out of the way first.

But, what makes chocolate even better?!

We were recently invited to check out their newest event, called Build a Bar which allows you to create & customize your very own chocolate bar from a long list of fun ingredients.…

Admiral’s Restaurant – San Carlos / La Mesa

Admiral’s Restaurant – San Carlos / La Mesa

IMG_3551c

Recently we were invited to dine at Admiral’s Restaurant in San Carlos (just adjacent to La Mesa).

I was excited because Chef Geoff markets his restaurant well.  His message is simple – world class cuisine based off of his wide-ranging experience cooking for admirals, senators, and diplomats (sounds fancy)!

This should be good.  So, I invited my good friend, Tee, who happens to be the Captain of a Navy ship, and a foodie just like me.

Let’s see how they did and if the experience lives up to their name…

Location

Admiral’s is located in San Carlos strip mall just a few doors down from The Trails Eatery.…

The Location

We were recently invited to dine at Red Card Cafe and it immediately looked familiar when I arrived.  Anyone know what this used to be?

This was the former restaurant, Kitchen 4140, which I used to frequent for a delicious brunch.

The location is nestled in an unsuspecting business park just across from the Costco on Balboa Ave.

Red Card Cafe has taken its place over the past year and doing it’s best to impress with their fun sports themed atmosphere and a fresh menu.

The Westgate Hotel Sunday Brunch Buffet

The Westgate Hotel Sunday Brunch Buffet

Sorry for the delayed posts as of late.  We’re going through a few changes at the moment.  In the meantime, I’m going to try to give you some new content which will be primarily made up of pictures and not too many words… which is probably okay, because I know you’re here to eat with your eyes, right!?  🙂

Anyhow, here’s a long overdue post that’s been in the hopper, but you really need to know about.  It’s probably the best brunch buffet in San Diego I know of!

Vitality Bowls – UTC

Vitality Bowls – UTC

Super foods have been around for a long time, and so has açaí. If you somehow managed to avoid the berry found in Brazil, it is said to have many health benefits. Vitality Bowls is a national chain with locations in seven different states. They specialize in açaí bowls but also serve smoothies, juices, salads, and soups.

We visited the location in the University Town Center area of San Diego. 

The inside isn’t very large, but it is bright and clean.

They have specials every month and their Valentine’s special was The Love Bowl.…

Roast Sandwich Shop at the Liberty Public Market San Diego

Look what I found recently at the Liberty Station Public Market!  Roast.

It’s a small eatery inside the market that just made it’s debut a few months ago.

I decided to go check it out one day after eating lunch with some friends at Corvette Diner (since I was in the area!).

Inside is no frills.  There isn’t a lot of room, but they seem focused with their menu which is a good thing.

They specialize in roast beef, chicken, pork, and meatballs.

Drinks are served up cold straight from an ice cooler.…

Werewolf – Gaslamp, Downtown San Diego

Werewolf – Gaslamp, Downtown San Diego

Werewolf

What a cool name.  Werewolf!

P1240006

Werewolf is right in the heart of the Gaslamp district of downtown San Diego.  Inside is a quaint and energetic bar & grill that is sure to appeal to many.

Service this evening was awesome and we were tended to by no less than 4 people… all who had different food recommendations.  😉

But, it was primarily Jason and Nick who helped us out this evening.

At least there was consensus amongst everyone to order the wings.  These bad boys are prep’d with lots of love.  …

Great Oak Steakhouse at the Pechanga Resort & Casino – Temecula

Great Oak Steakhouse at the Pechanga Resort & Casino – Temecula

We were invited to dine at The Great Oak Steakhouse, one of the 11 restaurants at Pechanga Resort & Casino. Even though I often hear the name Pechanga all over the place, I don’t think I’ve ever stepped foot in the casino. It’s weird because I’ve been to just about every other casino San Diego has to offer. They had the Chinese New Year decorations in full effect and it made me happy.

The casino itself is a lot larger than I had imagined. We managed to walk around and quickly found the entrance to the Great Oak Steakhouse.…
