Green China Grill – Convoy Area

Green China Grill – Convoy Area

IMG_2133

We’d been wanting to try out Green China Grill for a little while now after reading reviews from our friends at Jinxi Eats, Kirbie Cravings, and Mmm-yoso.

We decided to finally try it with Darren and Anh.

Inside is definitely green!

They have a nice open layout and a large window into the kitchen and a direct view to watch them make their noodles by hand.

They also serve several cold items, but we didn’t get any this time around.

Here’s the skilled noodle maker getting her dough ready.…

Kung Fu Tea – San Diego (Kearny Mesa)

Kung Fu Tea – San Diego (Kearny Mesa)

IMG_1058

So Darren and I first noticed Kung Fu Tea a couple weeks ago while we were eating dessert at Blush (same shopping center).  It was clearly under construction and didn’t look that far along.  Darren mentioned he’d seen them in Las Vegas before, but didn’t have the opportunity to try them.

Anyhow, I was driving up to LA this past weekend and was headed over to MiTea.  Before I got there, I noticed an open sign and the Kung Fu Tea sign nice and bright.  So, I decided to check it out quickly.…

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.…

Ocean Pacific Grille – Downtown San Diego, Gaslamp

Ocean Pacific Grille – Downtown San Diego, Gaslamp

A quick shout out to my neighbors, Russ and Berm, who turned me on to Ocean Pacific Grille right when they opened up 4 months ago.  They’ve been raving about them ever since.  So, I’ve been wanting to try them for some time now, but always had some sort of scheduling conflict.

Luckily for us, Kat from Crave Marketing, invited us to check them out recently.  So of course we jumped at the opportunity when it arrived and said, YES!

Ocean Pacific Grille was opened by Managing Partner, Brian Norris, and Chef Partner, Charles Andres.  …

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).…

Emerald Chinese Cuisine – Dim Sum Disaster

Emerald Chinese Cuisine – Dim Sum Disaster

IMG_7155c2

Here’s a precursor to my post.  The carts are GONE.  No!!!

IMG_7165

Although San Diego dim sum could never come close to comparing to SGV (San Gabriel Valley) or the Bay (SF or Oakland – Chinatown), I felt my cravings could always be temporarily satisfied at Emerald Chinese Cuisine.  They have been a staple in the Convoy area for decades now and their prices were always decent.  We had our go to dishes that were pretty good here, but the last time we came by (a month ago roughly) we found the doors shut.…

T-Pop Desserts & More (Mira Mesa)

After my friends and I attended the D6 Night Market a few months ago, I guess we weren’t done eating yet. My strategic stomach space planning didn’t factor in an extra food stop. Here I thought I was the crazed foodie. My fellow food loving peoples wanted to stop by T-Pop Desserts & More for, well…more. They were taking me somewhere I had never been before but had heard a lot about. The pictures looked great from what I saw in other reviews, so in the very least it would make for a good presentation.…

Vessel’s Summer Menu at Kona Kai Resort, San Diego

Vessel’s Summer Menu at Kona Kai Resort, San Diego

What better way to kick off Summer than with an invitation to visit one of our favorite restaurants in San Diego – Vessel at Kona Kai Resort!  IMG_2058

We were invited to check out Chef Roy’s new Summer Tasting Menu along with a craft beer pairing.  Would it live up to the previous menu (Vessel Fall Menu Review)?
IMG_2067

First up was the 48 Hour Pork Belly – plantain powder, sweet potato spaetzle, anise, & bitter chocolate

I must say I loved the presentation.  The pork belly was tasty for sure, and it was interesting to have it spiced with anise.  …
