Monthly Wine Dinner Presented By Villa Capri Poway August 2015

August Wine Dinner with Wines from Mastroberardino Winery presented by Villa Capri Poway On the last Thursday of every month Villa Carpri Poway features a wine and dinner night. 5 courses paired with 5 wines I left feeling very full and just a little tipsy (for $49.95).

iDessert by Jean-Philippe – Little Italy San Diego

I made my way to the Little Italy Farmers Market mainly to get some fresh sea urchin (uni) and then a friend reminded me that I wanted to check out iDessert by Jean-Philippe. It’s not part of the Little Italy farmers market, but it is located half a block away. Going to iDessert is not […]

Plumeria Thai Vegetarian University Heights San Diego

I always wondered why there were 2 Thai Restaurants each across from each other. There is Bahn Thai a little take out place and then there is Plumeria a restaurant and looks quite pretty. I’ve always thought that it’s no hard to make a Thai Restaurant a vegetarian restaurant since you usually select a base dish […]

Part 2: Anaheim Packing House – The Kroft, Georgia’s, Lemon Drop, Popbar, Hans’ Handmade Ice Cream

As mentioned in my previous post about the Anaheim Packing House, I just absolutely had to come back for more. I wanted to feel as if I was at a night market where I can just eat my way through everything. With my parents and sister Yuntiha, we managed to check out a few places: […]

Part 1: Anaheim Packing House – Rolling Boil hot pot

I went to the 626 Night Market a few weeks ago where I indulged in a lot of street food and then I remembered there is something similar to that in Anaheim…sort of. The Anaheim Packing House (District) is located in downtown Anaheim (near Disneyland-ish). I was here in November of 2014 for my birthday […]

An Evening at the 626 Night Market

When my sister Yuntiha was in Taiwan in January of this year, she went to several night markets and came home telling me all about the amazing food she was eating in Taiwan. Which made me quite jealous and ready to plan my next trip to Taiwan just to go to a night market. But […]

Blush Ice Bar + East-West Kitchen Gaslamp Downtown San Diego

I drive past the corner of 6th and Market all the time and I’ve seen sign up for Blush Ice Bar: East West Kitchen for a while. At first I though it was a dessert place since there is a little dessert place in San Diego called Blush as well (in Kearny Mesa). I finally […]

CUCINA urbana Bankers Hill, San Diego CA

After a couple long meetings in the morning, I was invited to join my friend for lunch today and I was super excited that she had reservations at CUCINA urbana which is only a few blocks from my office in Bankers Hill, San Diego. CUCINA urbana actually sells wine at retail price; you just need […]

Tim Ky Noodle Mira Mesa San Diego

So my Best Friend V asked me out to lunch and she wanted to go to Tim Ky Noodle 添記麵家 in Mira Mesa because she wanted to eat Pork Kidney noodles. Located on the corner of Mira Mesa Blvd and Black Mountain Rd in the corner of that plaza, this little location has gone through […]
