Gala Chicken

Gala Chicken

Gala Chicken   Every time I shop at Zion Market, I notice the Gala Chicken booth in the middle of the store. Gala Chicken offers twice-fried Korean style chicken. If you were out shopping this weekend, you probably noticed that just about every place was crowded and full of lines. We decided to take a […]

French Concession

French Concession

French Concession   French Concession is a new all-day dim sum place that recently opened in Hillcrest, occupying the former Celadon. It’s the same owner (Alex Thao), but a new restaurant name, menu and concept. When we visited, the interior was still pretty similar to Celadon. The dim-sum menu, which is served all day, offers […]

Sizzling Pot King

Sizzling Pot King

Sizzling Pot King Sizzling Pot King is a Chinese restaurant specializing in dry hot pots. The restaurant replaced Qi Wei, a similar-style restaurant, towards the end of last year and has been quite popular.

Savory Buffet

Savory Buffet

Savory Buffet   Mr. K and I haven’t really had the desire to eat Chinese buffets in a long time, with the exception of Tomi Buffet in San Jose which has surprisingly high quality sushi. But for some reason, I’ve had this desire to revisit Savory Buffet lately. It’s been years since I’ve been, but […]

K Sandwiches- Cronuts/Glazed Croissants

Current Cravings- Healthier Snacks Since I wrote a fast food redux last week, I thought I would try to balance things out with some healthier snacks I’ve recently been consuming. Carrot Cake Vita Tops I love Vita Top muffins. I discovered them a few years ago through Hungry Girl. Each muffin top uses healthier ingredients […]

Phil’s BBQ (San Marcos)

Phil’s BBQ (San Marcos)

Phil’s BBQ (San Marcos) We don’t make our way over to San Marcos often, so when we were in the area last time, I tried to maximize our visit by stopping by the Phil’s BBQ location in San Marcos. This was our first time visiting this location, and I was surprised to find that the […]

Puesto (The Headquarters)

Puesto (The Headquarters)

Puesto (The Headquarters) We recently visited the new Puesto location inside The Headquarters at Seaport District. While the La Jolla location is a fast-casual eatery, the downtown location is quite impressive. The sit-down restaurant consists of two stories, a full bar area, and a patio for dining. I really love the way they decorated it, […]
