Facing East Noodle and Bar – Kearny Mesa

Facing East Noodle and Bar – Kearny Mesa

This post will cover two separate visits to Facing East Noodle and Bar in Kearny Mesa off of you guessed it, Convoy Street. 

Their menu might seem a little overkill at first glance, but it’s not as daunting as it looks if you know your target. If not, you could be staring at soup noodles, dumplings, fried rice, tea’s, smoothies, and freakshakes (yes that’s a thing) for hours. 

But they have pretty pictures to look at to wrangle you into focus.

The restaurant opened in October of last year and I have mixed feelings going to new places.…

Happy New Year! I haven’t made any New Year’s resolutions this year that I would probably eventually give up on, so instead I’ll make a wish. I wish to eat just as many or more amazing things this year as I did last. I also want to find things I haven’t gotten a chance to discover or try yet. Here’s to a great 2016 all!

There was a time Michael and I went to The Original Sab-E-Lee at the original location across the street almost every week.  Okay, maybe it seemed like every week but we went a lot.…

The Safehouse (North Park)

A little reminder, we are running a McDonald’s giveaway so don’t forget to enter! Onto our review! Need a dash of nostalgia? The Safehouse just might be that place if you are a video game nerd like me. Located in North Park, their focus is on ramen, local beer, and of course the overall fun atmosphere.

You read that right. NINTENDO 64!

I spy a Nintendo 64 in the corner. Depending on how you look at it, we were or weren’t in luck because the Chargers game was on. Michael was trying to avoid watching/hearing what was going on because he was recording it at home.…

Nishiki Ramen (San Diego)

Nishiki Ramen (San Diego)

We were searching for a place to go and heard rumblings that Nishiki Ramen was set to open a few Sundays ago. There was a certain buzz around it and we decided to brave the potential wait for a hopefully good bowl of ramen. They have multiple locations in Japan but this is the first in the US. It is located in the same mall as Mitsuwa Market and Staples in Kearny Mesa.

We thought we were going to beat the majority of the people by going early. I guess people of San Diego really love their ramen as there was quite a line formed by the time we got there.…

QT Pot or Quality Taste Pot has been open since about September and we actually went a few weeks back but only got a chance to put something up until now. I hope to give it another try at some point down the road. They serve small hot pots that are more than enough for Anh and I. We used to go to Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot fairly often, but we switched to E & Drink when it opened because of location, the better price, and their hot pot lunch specials.…

I noticed a new place pop up on the backside of a shopping mall on Convoy where China Max resides. That place is called Jin’s Pot.

They have various lunch specials for $7.99. I asked the waitress what she recommended and she told me to get the Pork Rice Noodle Soup. Don’t you love it when they get straight to the point and don’t list everything on the menu as being their favorite? Easy ordering atmosphere. Check.

It came out super hot with a soulful aroma. When it was set on the table we realized there was a spicy component which we didn’t know about beforehand.…
