DoorDash

DoorDash

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.…

San Diego County Farmers Markets

There are several great San Diego Farmers Markets spread across the county, so when we saw this cool infographic rounding them out, we had to share!

I’ve been frequenting the Otay Ranch Farmers Market at the mall recently on Tuesdays.  We love getting the Pad-see-Ew from the Thai food vendor and lumpia from Gabina’s (5 for $2).

Which Farmer’s Market is your favorite?  Which vendors do you frequent?

Azucar Cuban Bakery – Custom Order Review

Azucar Cuban Bakery – Custom Order Review

Not only is Azucar great for an impromptu visit for coffee and a pastry, but they also have delicious lunch options like the Cubano sandwich, ground beef filled fried mashed potato balls, and a plethora of sweet treats!  You can check out my previous post here, but this review will cover our recent experience placing a special event order for my son’s 1st birthday and baptism celebration.

Raglan Public House (Ocean Beach)

Raglan Public House (Ocean Beach)

IMG_2687

Happy belated Halloween! Hope you all had a ghoulishly good time. I can’t believe it is already November. You know what that means right? Thanksgiving is right around the corner, woohoo!

Anyhow, Raglan Public House is about a block southwest from Newport Ave. and Hodad’s in Ocean Beach. A friend of mine was in town and since the line for Hodad’s was as long as it usually is, we decided to venture out and try something different. They have a small eating area around the corner and the dining area has large windows open to the elements of OB.…

Cronuts! A Revisit to Azucar (Ocean Beach)

Cronuts! A Revisit to Azucar (Ocean Beach)

DSC_1053

It was way back in 2011 when Jorgina posted about Azucar in Ocean Beach.  Can’t believe it has been that long.  We haven’t had a follow up post since then, so what better time than now!?  It doesn’t hurt that they hopped on the cronuts train and serve their very own “craynuts” as they like to call them, every Monday at 12:00pm sharp.  Anh and I have been on a mission to try our very own first cronut, but Paris Baguette has failed us a few times by selling out too fast.  …

BO Beau Kitchen + Bar (Ocean Beach)

BO Beau Kitchen + Bar (Ocean Beach)

It was my friends’ birthday, and one of them requested to try something special and different after having been to several birthday dinners with other friends already. I was scratching my head, trying to find a special place that has great food and a great atmosphere for the birthday girl and boy. We were originally planning  to go to the Himalayan, but they weren’t accepting reservations, and could not guarantee us a table. Then I came across BO Beau Kitchen + Bar in OB. I’ve never heard of it before, but it seemed like a nice place, so we decided to give it a try.…
