Freshly

These food delivery service companies really have been pulling me on a string lately. Yes I have enough time to shop and cook. But the idea of saving time when I need to, coupled with my curiosity has forced me to try yet another meal kit delivery service. I wrote about Blue Apron back in August and had mixed feelings about it. This time Anh turned me to Freshly since she was about to give it a try herself. Each Blue Apron meal (serving) cost $6.50 (with the discount I found online).…

Lemonade – UTC Mall, San Diego

I was quite happy to hear through the wire that two Lemonade locations were opening in San Diego in 2015.  I’ve been a big fan of their restaurants for awhile now, but until now I’ve only been able to frequent them during L.A. trips to visit family.  The locations recently opened are in Hillcrest and University Towne Center (UTC).  Lemonade is a quick service modern marketplace restaurant that brings seasonal California comfort food in a whimsical open-space cafeteria setting.

Jamaican in San Diego! There aren’t many options if you want to get some good Jamaican food her in San Diego so when this restaurant popped up on my radar it was a must see/eat!

We felt at home and they made us feel welcome when we perused the menu wondering what we’d get to try.

They had many drinks to choose from so we of course got the ginseng soda, because that makes sense.…

Caribbean Flavor in San Diego

Caribbean Flavor in San Diego

Caribbean Flavor is an excellent casual restaurant that accents the best of mix of Caribbean, Venezuelan, and other Latin cuisines.  As you can see from the front of their restaurant, you can barely make out their main sign, which is the little rectangle in the bottom left.  Much more visible are the words, “Latin Food” and “Que Chevere,” which translates to “That’s Great!”.  I whole heartedly agree.  This family owned restaurant has something special going, and it has immediately been added to my list of favorites in San Diego.  It’s a bit of a trek from Mission Valley to Poway, but my wife and I never hesitate to travel for great food.…
