R&B Crawfish Lounge – Kearny Mesa

R&B Crawfish Lounge – Kearny Mesa

When I saw that a new messy seafood place (think Boiling Crab) opened on Convoy, the food blogger in me got excited. “Yes, I get to try a new place!” Once my mind is on a track, there’s only one way to go until an obstacle or something gets in its way. More on that later. They had their soft opening in December and opened its doors in January. It resides on Convoy, so you know that parking can be a little difficult at peak times. It’s in the same mall as China Max and Infinitea.…

TJ Oyster Bar – Otay Ranch, Chula Vista

TJ Oyster Bar – Otay Ranch, Chula Vista

20141007_122824

This post is LONG overdue.  But, better than never right!?  Luckily I live 10 minutes away from this newest TJ Oyster Bar located in the Otay Ranch community of Chula Vista.  The size of the new restaurant (#3) is perfect combination of the original and the larger sit down restaurant.

Of course they still have a signature bar area where you can sit, but all orders are taken from a counter once you come in.  The kitchen is nice and open where you can watch the action occur (although it’s not as intimate as the original location on Bonita Rd.).…

Seasons 52 Blogger Dinner (The Headquarters)

Seasons 52 Blogger Dinner (The Headquarters)

A few weeks ago we were invited to a blogger dinner at Seasons 52 at the Headquarters in downtown. Ever since we attended a media dinner for the first Seasons 52 in San Diego at UTC, we’ve been paying them visits every once in a while. It’s safe to say we enjoy the food and keep coming back for more! Executive Chef Partner Steve de Barril was on hand once again to talk about the menu and walk us through some of the new things they are preparing.

The downtown location is nice and spacious with an open kitchen to catch some of the action.…

Del Mar Gourmet Food Truck Festival

Del Mar Gourmet Food Truck Festival

Food Truck Fest

Food truck gatherings are nothing new, but the amount of participating food trucks can make all the difference. The Gourmet Food Truck Festival at the Del Mar Racetrack is one of the larger gatherings we’ve been to. They had close to 40 different food trucks to choose from. This particular event took place last month on a sunny and sizzling San Diego Saturday afternoon. In our eyes, the more the better so we can try as much as we can from food trucks all over Southern California without actually driving to each one.…

Kula Revolving Sushi Bar (San Diego)

Kula Revolving Sushi Bar (San Diego)

Kula Revolving Sushi Bar has made its way down to San Diego and we visited them a few weeks ago on a random Tuesday afternoon at 1:30pm thinking we wouldn’t have to wait. Wrong answer, try again. Okay thirty minutes isn’t that bad, especially since we were in for a sensory overload experience. It looks like Kula has over 300 locations mostly in Japan with seven of them in and around the Los Angeles area. They specialize in a conveyor belt that loops throughout the dining area(right next to each table) and into the kitchen.…

Supernatural Sea to Sandwich (San Diego)

Supernatural Sea to Sandwich (San Diego)

So we finally went to Supernatural Sandwiches back in January. We heard about it from friends, bloggers, and numerous media outlets. Heck, we even saw it at the Convoy Night Market! But at the time I didn’t connect the dots and realize what I was missing.

We would not be denied too much longer. The Nessie (Local Fish of the day, Silky Shinto Glaze, Buttery Toasted Bun, Tasty Shaman Tartar Sauce, Savory Jinx Relish, Fresh Local Greens) seemed like a good choice to start us out. They were serving halibut and it all came on two pieces of brioche bread.…

Tom Ham’s Lighthouse

Tom Ham’s Lighthouse

You’ll be hard pressed to find a more beautiful San Diego Bay view than the one Tom Ham’s Lighthouse enjoys.  Situated at the North end of Harbor Island (across from the SD Airport), Tom Ham’s is perched serenely against the San Diego Bay with breathtaking 270 degree waterfront views.  I’ve been here a couple times before for Sunday brunch a few years ago (which I have great memories of), but today’s lunch invitation was certainly one to be remembered.IMG_4219

I got to the restaurant 15 minutes early before meeting Darren here, so I decided to take a quick stroll and soak in the perfect day (73 degrees with a slight breeze).…

Lou and Mickey’s (Downtown)

Lou and Mickey’s (Downtown)

DSC_0614

We don’t normally get to downtown very often. Lately though, Michael and I have been honing our skills in finding the best parking spots downtown has to offer. On this trip we’d visit and get to know a restaurant we have seen many times, but never dined at before. Partly because it just never occurred to me to try “that” restaurant that sits right across the street from the convention center. Lou and Mickey’s is easy to spot next to the Gaslamp Quarter sign, with its lights shining brightly over 5th ave.…
