I was quite happy to hear through the wire that two Lemonade locations were opening in San Diego in 2015.  I’ve been a big fan of their restaurants for awhile now, but until now I’ve only been able to frequent them during L.A. trips to visit family.  The locations recently opened are in Hillcrest and University Towne Center (UTC).  Lemonade is a quick service modern marketplace restaurant that brings seasonal California comfort food in a whimsical open-space cafeteria setting.

Kyoto Gift & Food is a Japanese Market located just West of the 805 freeway in National City, CA.  It took us awhile to find this place because it’s touted more as a market, rather than an eatery.  However, I’d say it should be known for both.

I must admit, living further South these days makes it a bit more challenging to find great San Diego food without driving 20+ minutes.  Thankfully, we just found Goody’s Sushi and Grill and it’s not too far away in National City.

Goody’s is located in a simple strip mall and the inside is simple and quaint.  I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, but once food started arriving I got more and more excited.

We started off with the garlic edamame.  It was incredibly tasty and the carmelized garlic really made the flavors pop.  …
