Tigris Mediterranean Grille – Kearny Mesa, San Diego

Tigris Mediterranean Grille – Kearny Mesa, San Diego

IMG_8161

So Jorgina and I stumbled onto Tigris Mediterranean Grille the other week after a quick trip to her dentist in Kearny Mesa.  It’s just West of the 15 Fwy off of Clairemont Mesa Dr. and Overland Ave.  The parking lot in the shopping center was a bit dense, but luckily we found one before the lunch rush.

Inside we were happy to find a quick service Mediterranean grill where you can watch the action of them preparing your food.

At the end of the line, you will find a couple cashiers to take your order and their full menu just overhead.…

Blush Desserts (Kearny Mesa)

Blush Desserts (Kearny Mesa)

Ever since I visited Yes! Pingo over a year ago and stumbled upon Blush Desserts next door I wondered how they were doing. That mall is a revolving door of restaurants with a less than friendly parking lot to boot. Now a year later Yes! Pingo isn’t there any longer and I believe Blush Desserts is under new ownership (just kidding, they clarified that it is in fact the same original owners!). 

When we first popped in they were just starting up and actually didn’t really have much of anything to offer.…

Nishiki Ramen (San Diego)

Nishiki Ramen (San Diego)

We were searching for a place to go and heard rumblings that Nishiki Ramen was set to open a few Sundays ago. There was a certain buzz around it and we decided to brave the potential wait for a hopefully good bowl of ramen. They have multiple locations in Japan but this is the first in the US. It is located in the same mall as Mitsuwa Market and Staples in Kearny Mesa.

We thought we were going to beat the majority of the people by going early. I guess people of San Diego really love their ramen as there was quite a line formed by the time we got there.…

Emerald Chinese Cuisine – Dim Sum Disaster

Emerald Chinese Cuisine – Dim Sum Disaster

Here’s a precursor to my post.  The carts are GONE.  No!!!

IMG_7165

Although San Diego dim sum could never come close to comparing to SGV (San Gabriel Valley) or the Bay (SF or Oakland – Chinatown), I felt my cravings could always be temporarily satisfied at Emerald Chinese Cuisine.  They have been a staple in the Convoy area for decades now and their prices were always decent.  We had our go to dishes that were pretty good here, but the last time we came by (a month ago roughly) we found the doors shut.…

Katsu Cafe – Kearney Mesa, San Diego

Katsu Cafe – Kearney Mesa, San Diego

Thank goodness is all I have to say.  It’s been awhile since I blasted a restaurant, but Teri Cafe was terrible in my opinion.  Granted I haven’t been there in years, but I distinctly remember their chicken was always dry and under season. So, I’m happy to report that Teri Cafe is no longer around and has been replaced with Katsu Cafe!

I’m not exactly sure when they opened since I don’t work in the area any longer, but I decided to check it out with Jorgina and the kids one day while we were furniture shopping.  …

Sharetea Grand Opening (Kearny Mesa)

Sharetea Grand Opening (Kearny Mesa)

When I first moved to San Diego in 2005 I would guess that Michael had consumed over double the amount of boba as I had up to that point in our lives. Now that I have been with Anh for over five years now, I think I easily have caught up with him and maybe even surpassed his sizable boba consumption count. If we decided to get boba at one place for the rest of our lives we probably could single-handedly keep them in business with the amount of boba we drink.…

Kula Revolving Sushi Bar (San Diego)

Kula Revolving Sushi Bar (San Diego)

DSC_0001

Kula Revolving Sushi Bar has made its way down to San Diego and we visited them a few weeks ago on a random Tuesday afternoon at 1:30pm thinking we wouldn’t have to wait. Wrong answer, try again. Okay thirty minutes isn’t that bad, especially since we were in for a sensory overload experience. It looks like Kula has over 300 locations mostly in Japan with seven of them in and around the Los Angeles area. They specialize in a conveyor belt that loops throughout the dining area(right next to each table) and into the kitchen.…
