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. …

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.

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.…

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.…
