Eclipse Chocolate Bar & Bistro is a trendy little spot in South Park that produces a steady stream of chocolate treats, drinks, and even some savory bites too.

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.…

Encontro – North Park, San Diego

Encontro – North Park, San Diego

Encontro North Park

Encontro in North Park, San Diego, is a fun and inventive food and drink destination.

They just opened up earlier this year (2016), but have already begun to build a nice following.

The name “Encontro” is meant to evoke feelings of discovery or encountering new things.

The restaurant is well laid out with a super friendly staff.  They serve a lot of craft beers and even several specialty sodas for the non-alcoholic drinkers like me.  🙂

You can’t see it in this picture, but there is a nice open window area that you can sit and people watch.…

D6 Night Market (Mira Mesa)

D6 Night Market (Mira Mesa)

I got a chance to go to the D6 Night Market in Mira Mesa a few weekends ago held at Mira Mesa Community Park. If there is one thing I learned about these events it’s come early if you don’t like to wait in long lines and potentially miss out on some things that may sell out. This particular night market is named after San Diego’s City Council District 6, which includes Clairemont, Kearny Mesa, MCAS Miramar, Mira Mesa, Rancho Peñasquitos-Park Village, and Sorrento Valley.

Family House of Pancakes

Family House of Pancakes

A year later and I’m still exploring all the little nooks in the South Bay.  One place that we’ve gone to a couple times is Family House of Pancakes.  It’s a solid, old school, pancake house with no frills.  But, their food is served piping hot and delicious!

On our most recent trip with our family, I decided to try their coconut waffle (they have a Belgium option too).  It was a decent size and plenty of coconut and powered sugar to satisfy my morning sweet tooth.  Like most breakfast places, the waffles and pancakes are served with whipped butter.  …

Happy Belated 4th of July! Hope you all had a nice holiday. Michael and I ventured over to Bruxie near San Diego State University last week. This particular location (first in San Diego) opened last month, and already has gained a lot of steam. They have seven other locations, mostly in the Orange County area. If they can stay consistent with their concept they seem primed and ready to open more. What concept you ask? Waffle sandwiches. Yes they do have other items on the menu like coffee and frozen custard, but the main pull here is the waffle.…
