Ever since my old DSLR (almost 10 years!) decided it was time to retire, I have been on a hunt for a more compact mirrorless camera I can take around whenever we eat out or when we go on vacation. The Sony a6300 had my eye and I was one Amazon click away from it being at my front door. I took a took a complete 180 and eventually settled on the Olympus OM-D E-M5. California Pizza Kitchen was the first outing I got to use my new toy and I hope to learn my way around the new controls and features soon.…Read more
We were recently invited to Boudin to check out their new fresh seasonal salads. Since I haven’t been eating as many greens as I’d like lately, this was the perfect opportunity turn things around.
Boudin is a bakery and quick service restaurant that has roots in San Francisco, dating all the way back to 1849! There are upwards of 30 locations today and a few that call San Diego County their home. Today we were visiting the Clairemont location on the corner of Balboa Ave. and Genesee Ave. This is the same mall that is home to 85 degrees.…Read more
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.…Read more
We’ve been to Smashburger a handful of times and even got to smash our own burgers on one occasion! Right now they are offering their Sin City Burger for a limited time until October 26th at all of their locations. Normally it is only served in Las Vegas. In tandem with the limited time offer is a #SinCitySurvivalTips social media campaign where they are giving away a trip to Las Vegas (see details at the end of this post). We also have two burger vouchers to give away!
The sin: bacon, fried egg, haystack onions, American cheese, smash sauce, all on an egg bun.…Read more
We got invited to the soft opening for the first Woodranch BBQ in San Diego. They have about sixteen locations, mostly in the Los Angeles area. The restaurant is located in Hazard Center in Mission Valley towards the back of the parking lot where Randy Jones All American Sports Grill used to be.
The restaurant itself is very dimly lit with the brightest section being the bar. They have an outdoor patio in the back of the restaurant as well.
Since this was the soft opening all food was complimentary. I remember going to a Woodranch BBQ up in Corona with my family a few years ago.…Read more

Yes that’s right. Jack in the Box is getting in on the cronut craze. While they are a little behind the trend, we aren’t ones to pass up an opportunity to try these typically tasty treats. A few weeks ago we picked some up. Much like the Vons version, we weren’t expecting much. That’s the best approach going into these. Don’t get your hopes up, and then be pleasantly surprised. And pleasantly surprised we were. The Jack in the Box version of the croissant donuts are miniature and topped with cinnamon and sugar.…
