As you read this, we should be home and dry. The last part of our trip was enjoying the Missus's favorite city. And while we did visit some of our favorite areas, we decided to really eschew the Museum visits... Continue reading

If you've read this blog long enough; you know that I love the cuisine of Peru; which, in addition to unique indigenous foods includes an amazing mish mash of all those who came upon its shores, there's something about the... Continue reading

The Missus had enjoyed our dinner at Fiskmarkadurinn so much, She had me make reservations at their sister restaurant, named Grillmarkadurinn (The Grill Market). I was lucky enough to get reservations and it would end being a nice finish to... Continue reading

Recently, while checking in to see if Lai Chen was actually open (it wasn't) I noticed a sign for something called Sandwich A'Fare. It was pointing down to the rear of the strip mall we call the "Kearny Mesa restaurant... Continue reading

A couple of more working during the weekend breakfasts. Tim Ky Noodle: It had been a while since I last visited. And even longer since I've had the Beef Sate Noodle here. So, I decided to drop before having to... Continue reading

After lunch, we went...well shopping of course. One of the first stops was Icewear. The Missus found a really nice down jacket, I found e style I really liked, but the color I wanted wasn't in stock. Leave it to... Continue reading

A couple of guys in the office like this food truck that comes by every couple of weeks. It named "Hana Hou to go". Hana Hou means "one more time" in Hawaiian. While I'm not fully sold on the Food... Continue reading

My revisit to Pho Mignon back in September had me wondering about Pho Lucky, which has been a regular stop for me over the years. Recently though I'd noticed that the pho here has seemed to go downhill a bit,... Continue reading

Red Card Café Closes: While driving on Morena a couple of weeks ago; I noticed the "For Lease" sign, so I stopped to take a look. I was quite surprised to see that Red Card Café had closed down. They... Continue reading

Thank goodness for the recent cool weather. The Missus wanted something "a bit" spicy. She chose Sizzling Pot King. And we ended up going back two more times! There's something comforting about the simple, just spicy and numbing enough dry... Continue reading

After a couple of rather unsatisfying visits to old favorites recently. It's good to know that, at least for us, Yakitori Taisho is holding the course. I haven't been able to visit very often; work is keeping me quite busy... Continue reading

It was a lovely morning when we awoke on our second day in Reykjavik. This was our last full day and while we didn't intend on driving around and such, we'd have quite a full day. After some coffee and... Continue reading

Hope you have a fun and safe Halloween. Pretty nice stuff around the neighborhood. But nothing beats this one in Los Olivos! Yikes! Continue reading

Iceland sure was photogenic; even during the "off-season", though I've read that Iceland is now facing the mixed blessing of too many tourists, which of course has its own share of problems (ask the guy who grew up in Hawaii... Continue reading

So, recently I had some time for an actual sit down lunch. Though not enough time to head down to Kearny Mesa. I wanted some Chinese, of which there seems to be a rather strange shortage of in this area.... Continue reading

After our dinner at Matur Og Drykkur, we got back to our apartment rather late, at least for us, as it was nearly 1130pm. We showered; well here's an interesting thing (apparently one of many) about the hot water in... Continue reading

Our next stop after Hida-Takayama was Kanazawa. Why Kanazawa? Well, I've heard the city called "Little Kyoto" several times. Kenrokuen Garden is considered one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan, the seafood is supposed to be great, there's Higashi-Chaya,... Continue reading

Good lord; triple digit temperatures. Just getting into the "100's" in Bay Park is bad enough....but at the end of October? What the heck is going on this year? So, instead of doing a post on Pho and Bun Bo... Continue reading

It was serendipity that brought us to Iceland. Well, perhaps to be perfectly honest, it was good pricing. In addition to some bargain Business Class tickets, we decided to take advantage of Icelandair's free stopover program. Basically, if you flew... Continue reading
