Roast Sandwich Shop at the Liberty Public Market San Diego

Roast Sandwich Shop at the Liberty Public Market San Diego

Look what I found recently at the Liberty Station Public Market!  Roast.

It’s a small eatery inside the market that just made it’s debut a few months ago.

I decided to go check it out one day after eating lunch with some friends at Corvette Diner (since I was in the area!).

Inside is no frills.  There isn’t a lot of room, but they seem focused with their menu which is a good thing.

They specialize in roast beef, chicken, pork, and meatballs.

Drinks are served up cold straight from an ice cooler.…

Cinnaholic – Pacific Beach

Cinnaholic – Pacific Beach

Cinnaholic is starting to spread its wings throughout San Diego. We previously visited the kiosk location at the Mission Valley Mall with the kids. They sure did enjoy themselves. This time, Michael and I would fill the void of uninhibited excitement the kids would normally bring at the new Pacific Beach location. Besides these two locations, they just opened one in Escondido at the North County Mall and are set to open another in the gaslamp as well. They have grown up and expanded quite a bit since their Shark Tank days.…

SNOICE in Paradise Hills, San Diego

SNOICE in Paradise Hills, San Diego

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

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.  …

Cinnaholic

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.

Since I was on Daddy duty this day, I decided to bring along Lil K and Lil L.

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