It’s been almost a month with my new camera and so far I am really digging it. I’m still learning where all the settings are in the various menu’s, but overall, the Olympus OM-D EM-5 MII is very easy to use. The electronic view finder and lcd are awesome to be able to see how the image is going to come out before you shoot. Go technology. On this day Anh and I visited Holsem Coffee which has been on the list for quite some time now. Michael and I tried to go way back when we ate across the street at The Safehouse.…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 got a chance to check out The Milk Bar in North Park back in February and heard some mixed reviews. Most of the not so nice reviews were not because of the quality or the taste, but rather the service. We didn’t have any problems with the service on our visit. In fact, the gentleman manning the register was quite nice. It did just open not long ago so maybe they were working through some things in the beginning. The Milk Bar is owned by Streetcar Merchants of Fried Chicken, Donuts, & Coffee.…Read more
A little reminder, we are running a McDonald’s giveaway so don’t forget to enter! Onto our review! Need a dash of nostalgia? The Safehouse just might be that place if you are a video game nerd like me. Located in North Park, their focus is on ramen, local beer, and of course the overall fun atmosphere.
You read that right. NINTENDO 64!
I spy a Nintendo 64 in the corner. Depending on how you look at it, we were or weren’t in luck because the Chargers game was on. Michael was trying to avoid watching/hearing what was going on because he was recording it at home.…Read more

I can’t count the number of times I’ve missed the cutoff of 10:30am to snatch a hot Egg McMuffin Combination. No more!!

Dare I say it? I WILL. Tonight’s dinner wins for my best meal of 2015 so far. Saiko Sushi delivered quality on all fronts – excellent ingredients, service, and even the prices are very reasonable for a sushi restaurant of this caliber.
Saiko Sushi is located in Northpark, just off University and West of 30th St. “Saiko” in Japanese is translated as “best or highest”. It’s a pretty bold claim, but one that they focus on meticulously every night. We were invited to check them out as this Northpark location just opened up recently. …Read more
Wang’s North Park has been around since 2011 and serves up Asian fusion fare. The only time I sampled their food was during a Taste of North Park event a few years back. That was only one item but on this night we had a wide range of dishes to fill our tummies.
Immediately as you enter the doors you kind of forget where you are. They have a huge space and converted it into a restaurant from an old JC Penny department store. There is a bar, couches, tables, and booth seating throughout.…Read more
