It has been almost exactly one year since Pizzeria Mozza opened in downtown San Diego. After a short stay, they are closing their doors at the end of the month on November 30th. According to their Facebook page, “the gospel of Mozza pizza did not adequately spread to the people of San Diego.” I wanted to put something up here for people on the fence who have never gone to the restaurant and were thinking of visiting before they closed. I believe a restaurant is only good as the food and service they provide.…Read more
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
Our favorite French Patisserie, Le Parfait Paris, has finally unveiled it’s newest storefront in the heart of downtown San Diego. It’s been a special project in the works for the past year or so, but I assure you the wait has been well worth it. Darren and I recently went to checkout the new location and definitely were not disappointed. The new location is stunning. With clean lines, colorful delights, and tall windows, the space couldn’t be more inviting. They are also open late on weekends!
We were greeted with some classic delights, as well as some new ones too. …Read more
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
Chances are you’ve seen or passed by Toast Enoteca & Cucina in downtown San Diego before. It’s right around the corner from Petco Park and across the street from Basic. Have you tried it yet? Fortunately we got to taste what Toast Enoteca & Cucina has to offer, but I can’t help but kick myself for not trying it sooner.
There’s around 400 different wines to sip and indulge on throughout the restaurant. You can load money on wine cards to sample by the ounce, just like Splash and Mosaic in North Park.…Read more
