Harvey’s Lounge Inside the Seven Mile Casino – South Bay

Harvey’s Lounge Inside the Seven Mile Casino – South Bay

P4260014

What the… huh?!  There’s a casino in Chula Vista?

Yes, there is!  The Seven Mile Casino is just south of the 54 freeway and nestled between E & F Streets along Bay Blvd.  While the casino has been in existence for decades and had a long history in the city, this newer property we visited has only been opened for a year.

They specialize in table games such as pai gow, poker, blackjack, and several other table games.

Although tempted to play some games, we were here for the food!

The casino is small relative to a most behemoth casinos you’ll find outside of the city limits or in Las Vegas, but that’s part of it’s charm.  …

Coasterra – Harbor Island, San Diego Bay

Coasterra – Harbor Island, San Diego Bay

IMG_9703

We had a good friend come into town to visit us from the Bay a couple weeks ago.  Since we were over by the airport, we decided to put our name into C-Level which is usually packed on the weekends.  To our surprise we found no wait.

We quickly realized that there was a new restaurant just a couple hundred feet from C-Level that quickly caught our eye.  So, after picking up our friend we decided to give the new place a try.

Coasterra is the newest restaurant to open on Harbor Island and they have been operating for a half year or so.  …

El Agave – Old Town

El Agave – Old Town

If you’ve ever walked around Old Town San Diego before you might have never noticed El Agave. And it’s too bad because they have quite a fun spread above the Old Town Liquor and Deli on the first floor. It is located on the South Eastern end of Old Town, a little bit off the regular path you’ve probably walked many times before. They feature over 2000(!!!) different tequilas for you to try and some fantastic food to go along with it.

One nice thing about dining here is the parking lot shared with the other businesses.…

Ceviche House – North Park

Ceviche House – North Park

 

Oh ceviche. Have I told you lately, that I love you? Have I told you, there’s no one else, above you? Fill my heart with gladness, take away all my sadness. Ease my troubles, that’s what you do. Sorry, I sometimes have conversations with my food that lasts well after a meal concludes. Ceviche House opened a location in North Park in December and had previously set up shop at local farmer’s markets throughout San Diego. Unassuming from the outside, it’s what’s inside that counts.

What a bright and welcoming vibe once you step in, kind of like ceviche!…

Carnitas’ Snack Shack – Del Mar

Carnitas’ Snack Shack – Del Mar

This is later post as it has been a little busy around here lately. Another favorite of ours is Carnitas’ Snack Shack in North Park. It seemed like yesterday when Michael and I used to go to lunch before there was any substantial seating in the back. Now they have a second location in Del Mar, with parking! That is one of the best things I was looking forward to before I drove up to this location.

Anh and I had planned on ordering the standard burger and tacos but specials always tend to ruin my well laid out plans.…

George’s at the Cove: Ocean Terrace – La Jolla

George’s at the Cove: Ocean Terrace – La Jolla

George’s at the Cove: Ocean Terrace has been one of my favorite spots to take people from out of town looking to splurge on a nicer meal with a killer view. I’m sad to report it has been quite a while since I last visited. I think my absence coincides with the dismay I felt when I found out they added surcharges for restaurant week items years ago. It was one of the first ones, if not the first one I remember ever doing that. But much like my Wendy’s ban of 10+ years, it was time to let it go.…

Un Mundo Mexican Grill – La Jolla, UTC

Un Mundo Mexican Grill – La Jolla, UTC

IMG_2248

Un Mundo Mexican Grill La Jolla’s newest take on fresh SoCal Mexican cuisine.  They just recently opened their doors a couple months ago in August, but are quickly building traction.

So despite taking 6 years of Spanish throughout Jr. High, High School, and then University, I still couldn’t remember what “Un Mundo” meant.  Pathetic I know!  Luckily Darren knew it meant “One World” and he walked in with his head held high.

Inside the restaurant we were greeted with a pleasant modern setup and blue highlights across the walls.  We met up with Galen (GM) who would be our guide for the evening.  …

Taste of Old Town 2015

Taste of Old Town 2015

I forgot how much fun Old Town can be. It seems like such a touristy place to go, but it was a treat walking around soaking in the sites and sounds. We hadn’t been to a Taste of event in a while so it was nice to put on our loose pants and get out to conquer as many plates as we could. There were a total of 13 participating restaurants with food and beverage(mostly tequila) samples.

It’s not everyday a food blogger can snap pictures while listening to “Oye Como Va” being played live.…
