The Great Thai BBQ – National City

Finally some legit Thai food in the South Bay!  The Great Thai BBQ is National City’s latest Thai restaurant to open.  Ever since moving South to CV, we’ve been craving the great Thai menus we used to be near: Sab-e-lee (Linda Vista), J&T Thai Street Food (near USD), Amarin Thai (Hillcrest), or Taste of Thai (Del Mar).

Azucar Cuban Bakery – Custom Order Review

Not only is Azucar great for an impromptu visit for coffee and a pastry, but they also have delicious lunch options like the Cubano sandwich, ground beef filled fried mashed potato balls, and a plethora of sweet treats!  You can check out my previous post here, but this review will cover our recent experience placing a special event order for my son’s 1st birthday and baptism celebration.
