Happy Friday!! We recently were invited to visit Isabel’s Cantina. It has been four years since our first visit and I’m not quite sure why it has taken so long to visit them again. Last time I was blindfolded and led into the restaurant, only to find a table filled with friends and family there to celebrate my birthday. Surprise! Maybe I compartmentalized that into a whole other part of my brain, away from the “normal” places to go. The outside of the restaurant sticks out like a sore thumb. It sits tucked away from the main stretch of Pacific Beach, sheltered by residential and other businesses. …Read more
A while back Anh and I were in PB to visit our friends over at The Secret Cookie Service and saw that there was a new restaurant serving Japanese food. At the prospect of finding a new place to enjoy, we made our way over after spending the usual 10 minutes to find parking.
We came a little early and were the only ones inside. No matter, this allowed me to avoid the normal funny glares as I snap snap away at everything in sight.
Finding good lunch specials excite me almost as much as being handed scratch and sniff stickers in elementary school when I got a good grade. …Read more
You may have heard of them before. Perhaps you have seen glimpses of their dark shadows or sniffed their warm baked cookie aromas from afar. They have a delivery service by text. They dress up like secret agents wearing black and white, with dark sunglasses. They have a new cookie stand in Mission Beach with red lights. They are: The Secret Cookie Service, and their mission is to serve you the best cookies around town.
Their new stand is located right in front of The Swell Cafe on Mission Blvd. Don’t let their get up fool you.…Read more
Today we were invited to have lunch at The Patio in Pacific Beach. We arrived upon a very lush, earthy, yet cozy restaurant.
There are three main areas to drink and enjoy the culinary creations from Chef John Medall. The main area which I would consider the patio portion, is small and quaint, yet didn’t feel overcrowded or stuffy. Since it has been so windy over the past few days they had a covering over the top to keep stray debris from flying into our food. Still, there was plenty of natural light and we were able to enjoy dining outdoors on a nice sunny day.…Read more
Darren and I were invited to try out Table 926 this past Sunday for their Champagne Brunch. Although we stuck with orange juice and ice tea to drink, we did notice they had a nice flight of Bellinis that most patrons would enjoy. Table 926 has become a popular destination recently. They only serve brunch once a week on Sundays, so other than that you’ll need to catch them for dinner.
The inside of Table 926 was not too small, but still felt quaint with it’s warm modern decor.
As you can see there were a number of choices for brunch. …Read more
