Happy Friday!! We recently were invited to visit Isabel’s Cantina. It has been four years since our first visit and I’m not quite sure why it has taken so long to visit them again. Last time I was blindfolded and led into the restaurant, only to find a table filled with friends and family there to celebrate my birthday. Surprise! Maybe I compartmentalized that into a whole other part of my brain, away from the “normal” places to go. The outside of the restaurant sticks out like a sore thumb. It sits tucked away from the main stretch of Pacific Beach, sheltered by residential and other businesses. …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
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 seating and decor is simple and fresh, while playing up to the Mexican theme throughout.…Read more

Rubios currently has a couple new menu items at all their locations and we were invited to try them out.
Right now they are offering a Tropical Shrimp Burrito and Tropical Shrimp Tacos for a limited time. How can you not dig their tagline, “hot, yet tropicool.” Ahhh yeah.
At first glance the burrito and tacos looked like they had the same ingredients. But the few differences made each taste noticeably different. Both have pan seared ancho shrimp with tropical salsa made with mango, pineapple, and chiles, pickled red onions, and a creamy chipotle sauce.…Read more
