Food and Wine Pairings at Villa Capri Poway..Girls night out or group dinner

I have not updated my blog with food and travel in a while, looking back I see how far behind I am! As I’m writing right now, it’s halloween and I just spent an evening out people watching and counting how many people are dressed up at Harley Quinn (and sonic) this year. But of […]


Girls night out at Villa Capri Poway monthly wine dinner 5 courses paired with 5 wines.

Tap and Press – Hillcrest San Diego, CA

We were supposed to go to Lemonade in Hillcrest but when we got there it was closed for some remodeling. I’d been hearing all about this place that just opened (it’s originally from Los Angeles) with 2 brand new locations with San Diego in Hillcrest and UTC. I’ve been dieing to check it out! Anyways, […]

Rare Form Delicatessen Restaurant – East Village San Diego, CA

A few weeks ago, I went to the Stone Brewery Tap Room in East Village and made the wrong (I knew it was wrong) turn and walked into Rare Form Delicatessen Restaurant. We ended up going to the Stone Brewery Tap Room to refill our growler, but I did mention that I really wanted to come […]

Tacos El Gordo – Chula Vista, San Diego, CA

I grew up in San Diego where Mexican food is almost everywhere. California Breakfast Burritos, Carni Asada Fries, Taco Tuesdays…and you can definitely find some amazing authentic Mexican food here in San Diego (with out actually having to cross the border though it can be a quick walk across the border). Late night carne asada […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
