Rita’s Italian Ice is starting to take over San Diego. They opened their first store in SD just last year and now have eight locations up and running. On their website they list seven more coming soon, with others I’m sure to follow shortly after. Time will tell if demand can keep up with their pace.

We went to try the location in Santee to see what everyone was talking about. There was a line, but we got through it pretty quickly.

McDonald’s New Build Your Burger Concept (Santee)

McDonald’s New Build Your Burger Concept (Santee)

DSC_0068

McDonald’s has launched a new initiative called “Build Your Burger” and is piloting this concept at the Midway and Santee locations of San Diego. They are the third and fourth locations to implement the changes and started rolling them out a little over a month ago. Using a touch screen to build a burger is not new to San Diego. We first saw it at Stacked in the Fashion Valley Mall in 2011. They use iPad’s to customize a burger order tableside.

A Rubios visit wouldn’t be complete with a salsa lineup for our tasting pleasure. IMG_3553

At first glance the burrito and tacos looked like they had the same ingredients. But the few differences made each taste noticeably different. Both have pan seared ancho shrimp with tropical salsa made with mango, pineapple, and chiles, pickled red onions, and a creamy chipotle sauce.…

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.  DSC_0004 DSC_0010 And pleasantly surprised we were. The Jack in the Box version of the croissant donuts are miniature and topped with cinnamon and sugar.…
