SNOICE in Paradise Hills, San Diego

PB140260

Just prior to Thanksgiving, we made a quick trip up to Paradise Hills to check out SNOICE.

*If you look a little closer, you’ll notice my daughter just outside the front door super eager to go inside!  Somehow she knew she’d be in a for a special treat.

SNOICE specializes in snow and ice desserts traditionally found in Taiwan and the Philipines.

They have a pretty cool story.  The founders, Jayrell and Dianne, started it up as a side project of the side of Dianne’s parents’ bakery.

What started out as a pop-up dessert bar has since evolved into a full fledged storefront and viable business.  …

Sloan’s – Downtown

Sloan’s – Downtown

A new Sloan’s ice cream shop opened in May at the newly renovated Horton Plaza Park right next to, you guessed it, Horton Plaza. They have another location in the UTC mall.

The plaza is very nice and open. I’m sure they have events there and it would be cool to hang out if I worked in downtown. The only other food/beverage vendor there is Starbucks. 

There’s also some semi-covered seating in front which is great for those hot sunny days when you do not want your ice cream to instantly melt.…

Locol – Oakland

Locol – Oakland

One thing about Anh and I is we like us some cheap food. As long as it’s good, we good. I do enjoy nicer sit down restaurants too, but in my world it can be hard to beat a sub $10 delicious meal and Locol in Oakland could potentially deliver that to me. That’s kind of what spurred me to contribute to the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign last year. Cheap, accessible, local, good food was what I was hoping to see from Locol in Oakland and LA. I also got a nice hip t-shirt to show off.…

DoorDash Alcohol Delivery

DoorDash Alcohol Delivery

DoorDash is a delivery service that has expanded to San Diego over the last year. You can read about our first experience here. If you don’t want to go back and read it the truncated version is we liked their food delivery service because it was on time and easy to use. The food was still warm and is comparable to when you pick up food yourself and bring it home right away. Since the time we reviewed their food delivery service they have expanded into delivering alcohol in Southern California and they offered for us to try it out.…

Poke Etc. – National City

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you probably aware that poke it all the rage these days in San Diego.

It’s interesting because there was such limited options for poke just a couple years ago, and now there’s probably close to a dozen options now.

One interesting restaurant (and store) that caught our attention was Poke Etc. in National City.

Inside they have a full Hawaiian menu with traditional plate lunches and sides.

They also have a breakfast menu which looks delicious as well.

Just behind the main counter, they have a poke bar which houses a few different ones.  …

Last week Darren and I had the opportunity to visit Cinnaholic in Mission Valley.

If you’re wondering why this sounds familiar, you may have seen them on Shark Tank last season!

They are located in the Mission Valley mall nearby the Macy’s and Nordstrom Rack wing.

Once we placed our order, they wasted no time climbing up on the bar to watch their mini cinnamon rolls being prepared!

Jonty Jacobs – La Jolla

Jonty Jacobs – La Jolla

Are you a beef jerky lover? I am. Camran, one of the owners of Jonty Jacobs in La Jolla insists you’ve never had beef jerky like this before. Some things in life you just sort of accept without giving a passing thought. For me, beef jerky is one of those things. Sodium nitrates, sure, why not? Preservatives? Okay! Artificial flavors? Sign me up! But then again, I had no idea there was a tastier, healthier version out there until now. Jonty Jacobs specializes in a popular South African snack called biltong.…
