Anh and I were trying to find a place to eat over the weekend and saw that Yakitori Taisho just opened a few weeks back. It is a part of the family of restaurants including Yakitori Yakyudori and Hinotez. We weren’t too confident they would be open for lunch on a Sunday, but gave it a shot anyways. Our suspicions were right and they were closed. Boooo. Never to get too down about being denied food, we dusted ourselves off and made it out for dinner a few nights ago. Right before we left I googled them to see if I could find their hours and noticed mmm-yoso paid them a visit recently.…Read more
You may have seen our giveaway for Taste of Bankers Hill the other week. Congrats to all our winners and everyone who participated! We got a chance to attend the event ourselves which we’ve never been to before. There were many restaurants we’ve dined at in the past, but some of them we haven’t gotten a chance to try yet. That’s what we love about “Taste of” events. You can get samples from multiple restaurants in one eating session, and hopefully they do a good job representing the restaurant as a whole.…Read more
There’s a lot of activity in Little Italy with seemingly new restaurants popping up all over. Cookbook Tavola Calda in Little Italy has been open since May, and Chef Gregorio Sarafini Pozzi along with his business partner, Filippo Macchiarelli could be filling a niche with staying power.

It can be fast and casual, but also features house made food that you might find at a sit down restaurant.…Read more
Josefas Cocina Mexicana opened about a month ago and resides right on Prospect Street in La Jolla. This would mark the first time we had Mexican food in La Jolla.

The restaurant boasts a patio outside, perfect to enjoy all of the sights and scenery La Jolla has to offer. There is also a spacious open indoor dining area.
The seating and decor is simple and fresh, while playing up to the Mexican theme throughout.…Read more
Last Saturday we got a chance to attend the second annual San Diego Night Market off of Convoy and Engineer Road. About a year ago they held their first event in the Zion Market parking lot next to MIT Express off of Clairemont Mesa Blvd. It was a very tight space, with little parking so we were interested to see how this years event would pan out given the new location.
We were able to park really close by because we came when the market opened at 4:00pm. Last year we made the mistake of coming right in the middle around 6:30pm and it took us a good twenty minutes to find parking.…Read more
