The Great Thai BBQ – National City

IMG_1834

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).

So, check this out.  A HUGE Thai Iced Tea!  Better yet, it was really good in flavor and the perfect sweetness to half/half ratio.  I’d definitely order again and again.

Ritual Juicebox (Hillcrest)

Ritual Juicebox Collage 6

We were invited to Ritual Juicebox in Hillcrest for a tasting when they first offered their plant based food back early in December, but we unfortunately couldn’t make it. They offered to host us at a more convenient time and we recently paid them a visit to see what kind of healthy creations they were cooking up. If you haven’t started on your New Year’s resolution to eat healthier yet, this may be the place to kick start your goal. Lainey Gaura, manager and Executive Chef was there to be our guide as she prepared various food items while we sat down and sampled many of their fresh organic juices they offer.…

Thailand Week (preview night)

TW1

The beginning of next week marks the start of Thailand Week (Sept. 1 to 7, 2014).  Darren and I had the good fortune of covering the preview event a couple weeks ago at the Escondido Center for the Arts.  Since we both love Thai food, we were in for a special treat!  There were over 35+ different restaurants that attended and each had a quality dish to share.

This particular evening was highlighting the “Thai Select” designation as given by the Thailand Ministry of Commerce.  Basically, if you’re given this distinction, your restaurant is “legit” in the eyes of the Thai government.  …

remedy food So we were invited to try out Remedy Foods this past week and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect.  With a new baby at home, it’s always great to have food delivered straight to your doorstep.  And since we haven’t been eating the healthiest lately, it was nice to be sent fresh and organic pre-made meals.
