Bobboi Natural Gelato – La Jolla

Bobboi Natural Gelato – La Jolla

IMG_2337

We had the good fortune of being invited to visit Bobboi Natural Gelato in downtown La Jolla recently.  I’m so glad that we did!

Bobboi has a fun atmosphere inside and the friendly staff greeted us immediately.

You can see they actually carry many different flavors which all must be meticulously maintained at the proper temperature.

Of course, we were curious what “bobboi” meant, and here it is!

They tout absolutely nothing but fresh ingredients and display some of their organic produce here.  When not making gelato, the owners can be found scouring local farmer’s markets looking for fresh new ideas.…

Royale With Cheese – University Heights

Royale With Cheese – University Heights

“You know what they call a quarter pounder with cheese in Paris?” A royale with cheese. A Pulp Fiction scene immediately came to mind when we decided to check out Royale With Cheese during Burger Week, which ended on March 12th. We already were planning on a visit here so it was a bonus Burger Week happened to be going on at the same time.

It was a bright and shiny day in San Diego and people were out and about enjoying this fine city we call home.

Royale with Cheese is a little hard to find from the street.…

Spitz San Diego – Mediterranean Street Food

Spitz San Diego – Mediterranean Street Food

Who say’s you can’t eat and play at the same time?

Spitz Mediterranean Street Food recently made a splash into San Diego with a focus on tasty food and fun.  With four L.A. based locations, Spitz has since expanded south to sunny San Diego in the Hillcrest area.

The location is right on 5th Ave. and we luckily found parking quickly.

As their name would suggest, Spitz serves several main entrees based off their döner meat (choice of beef & lamb, chicken, or mixed meat).

They sent us a gift card, so we decided to try out several things this day.…

DoorDash

DoorDash

Have you heard of DoorDash before? You might not have as they are relatively new to San Diego. They have an app you can download (you can use a web browser too) which allows you to order food or drinks from the comfort of your home. The restaurant prepares your order, and a delivery person or “dasher” comes to pick it up and deliver it to your house. There is a delivery fee of $3.99 for DoorDash Select restaurants or alternatively it costs $6.99 for other restaurants that are not DoorDash Select.…

The Milk Bar – North Park

The Milk Bar – North Park

IMG_1811

We got a chance to check out The Milk Bar in North Park back in February and heard some mixed reviews. Most of the not so nice reviews were not because of the quality or the taste, but rather the service. We didn’t have any problems with the service on our visit. In fact, the gentleman manning the register was quite nice. It did just open not long ago so maybe they were working through some things in the beginning. The Milk Bar is owned by Streetcar Merchants of Fried Chicken, Donuts, & Coffee.…

R&B Crawfish Lounge – Kearny Mesa

R&B Crawfish Lounge – Kearny Mesa

When I saw that a new messy seafood place (think Boiling Crab) opened on Convoy, the food blogger in me got excited. “Yes, I get to try a new place!” Once my mind is on a track, there’s only one way to go until an obstacle or something gets in its way. More on that later. They had their soft opening in December and opened its doors in January. It resides on Convoy, so you know that parking can be a little difficult at peak times. It’s in the same mall as China Max and Infinitea.…

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.…
