Square Bar Cafe – Kearny Mesa

Square Bar Cafe – Kearny Mesa

Opened in July of 2016, Square Bar Cafe keeps on adding new things to their menu. They have all sorts of drinks, desserts, and even food. Some of them include the pizza bagel, rainbow bagel, and double cups which basically is two drinks in one cup. I know, crazy stuff. But all welcomed in my book. This visit took place before they served any of these creations. So here I am dusting off this post.

When I first walked in and saw the menu I kind of got confused. There’s not much on it, yet my eyes wandered around trying to figure out what to focus on.…

San Francisco Food Crawl

San Francisco Food Crawl

Tis the season and we haven’t posted in a looooong time.  But we’re back with another fun filled installment of San Diego Food dot neat! I ventured into San Francisco about a month ago with Anh and we decided we would make the trip worth our while. Once our brunch destination was set up with some friends at Mission Beach Cafe, our next task was to see how many places were within walking distance we could tackle. Since we were walking it all off, the act of stuffing our selves silly did not phase us (in the psychological sense).…

After my friends and I attended the D6 Night Market a few months ago, I guess we weren’t done eating yet. My strategic stomach space planning didn’t factor in an extra food stop. Here I thought I was the crazed foodie. My fellow food loving peoples wanted to stop by T-Pop Desserts & More for, well…more. They were taking me somewhere I had never been before but had heard a lot about. The pictures looked great from what I saw in other reviews, so in the very least it would make for a good presentation.…

Sharetea Grand Opening (Kearny Mesa)

When I first moved to San Diego in 2005 I would guess that Michael had consumed over double the amount of boba as I had up to that point in our lives. Now that I have been with Anh for over five years now, I think I easily have caught up with him and maybe even surpassed his sizable boba consumption count. If we decided to get boba at one place for the rest of our lives we probably could single-handedly keep them in business with the amount of boba we drink.…

85°C Bakery Cafe(Clairemont)

DSC_0250Back in the day a trip up to LA or the SGV area wasn’t complete without a visit to 85°C. But over the last year or two, our visits have become less frequent. And nothing really changed up there. They sell the same quality tasty treats. The lines were as long as they ever were. Did we just get over it or would we be more inclined to visit more often if there was one closer to us? They’ve been in town since November of last year and we’ve only been once…

Matcha Love opened a little over a week ago in the Mitsuwa Market off of Balboa Ave. and the 163. The pictures looked great from what people were posting, and what better way to fight off this 90+ degree weather than a nice refreshing scoop of ice cream, or three…

Ito En is Japan’s largest green tea distributor. If you have had Costco’s Kirkland brand green tea, then you have already tried Ito En tea as they source their green tea from them.

Sorry for the reflection on the menu! We were already full from boba from Yes!Pingo so we were only able to fit a Triple Ice Waffle Bowl in our tummies.…

Tea Station Revisit (Rolando)

Tea Station Revisit (Rolando)

A few months back Anh and I checked out the new Tea Station out by San Diego State.  You can read about our experience here.  There were a few things that we felt needed a little improvement during our first visit, but overall the food and drinks tasted the same as the other Tea Station in Kearny Mesa.  We wanted to see if any of these things improved after being in business for a little longer.

The drink Anh ordered is Lemon Tea with boba.  It was a drink special that day and Anh loves her lemon tea.  …

Tea Station has arrived in East County!  Many of you may be familiar with Tea Station in Kearny Mesa or Mira Mesa, but they just opened a new location near SDSU off El Cajon Blvd. about a month ago.  Anh and I got a chance to try them out a few weeks ago to see how they compared to their brother and sister.  It is tucked away on the side of the Big 5 off of El Cajon and College.  The restaurant itself is hard to see but they do have a big sign near the intersection that was easy to spot.…
