Royale With Cheese – University Heights

Royale With Cheese – University Heights

“You know what they call a quarter pounder with cheese in Paris?” A royale with cheese. A Pulp Fiction scene immediately came to mind when we decided to check out Royale With Cheese during Burger Week, which ended on March 12th. We already were planning on a visit here so it was a bonus Burger Week happened to be going on at the same time.

It was a bright and shiny day in San Diego and people were out and about enjoying this fine city we call home.

Royale with Cheese is a little hard to find from the street.…

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.…

Ceviche House – North Park

Ceviche House – North Park

 

Oh ceviche. Have I told you lately, that I love you? Have I told you, there’s no one else, above you? Fill my heart with gladness, take away all my sadness. Ease my troubles, that’s what you do. Sorry, I sometimes have conversations with my food that lasts well after a meal concludes. Ceviche House opened a location in North Park in December and had previously set up shop at local farmer’s markets throughout San Diego. Unassuming from the outside, it’s what’s inside that counts.

What a bright and welcoming vibe once you step in, kind of like ceviche!…

We had the pleasure of sitting down with Karen of Sugar Rush San Diego to talk about how her passion for homemade treats has become a growing business and of course, to sample some of her baked goods. We are giving away two dozen of Karen’s cookies to one lucky winner! She started Sugar Rush San Diego about a year ago and has been mostly making cookies; however, she does have other offerings like lemon bars and brownies as well.

Babbo’s Bar & Grille (University Heights)

Babbo’s Bar & Grille (University Heights)

Babbo Grande, originally located in Hillcrest has transformed into Babbo’s Bar and Grille, now located in University Heights. I have never been to Babbo Grande before, and based on the reviews online, it seemed like their signature dish is crepes.

From their menu (apology for the blurred images, you can also see the menu on their website) , you can see that they feature a variety of food: frittata(open faced omelets), sandwiches, crepes and pasta. They also offer a $5.55 special, which is available from Monday to Friday. I was struggling between the special and the breakfast plates.

Loving Hut – Cocoa Tofu

Loving Hut – Cocoa Tofu

I’m checking out Loving Hut for lunch and more importantly trying out my new smartphone (which I’m blogging from now.)  So far the interface seems simple enough.Here is the cocoa tofu which wasn’t too bad.  The contrast of the cocoa with the coconut provided a nice balance, while the peanuts gave some added texture.  I’m not one to usually suggest a vegan lunch, but it was a nice change of pace.

Anyhow, Loving Hut is just off El Cajon Blvd… about a mile west of Texas St.  (Central SD).
