Restaurant Review: Tacos El Paisa

By on May 17, 2015 in Best of California, Eat

Address: 3096 National Ave (b/t 30th St & 31st St ), San Diego, CA 92113 Price: $ Rating: 4/5 Review: The food here is incredibly delicious; fresh, and spicy. You go up to the cashier to order your food and they bring you a platter with free chips with different types of salsa, carrots, slices of radish, and cucumbers. I was going to order Tripa burritos until we saw this sign behind the cashier. We decided to order Molcajete and share. We made the right decision. The asada was tender, chicken pieces were mouth watering, shrimp was tasty, nopales were great (we’re not fond of them normally but we tried a couple of strips), and the longaniza was nice and spicy. It was topped off well with queso fresco, aguacate, and salsa molcajete. I loved the longaniza the most. I have a fondness...

Mama’s Day 2015: An Extraordinary Culinary Evening

By on May 8, 2015 in Best of California, Community, Eat, Festivals, Fundraisers & Charities, Photography

Touted as San Diego’s best culinary event, Mama’s Day, never ceases to amaze us with signature dishes from over 55 top local chefs, restaurants, and caterers. It’s one of the annual fundraising that we look forward to. Now in it’s 25th year, the event is held the Friday evening before Mother’s Day. The event was held at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine and is often sprawled out around the pool area. The Hyatt staff did a wonderful job accommodating everyone indoors this year due to a couple of showers that hit San Diego throughout the day.     Mama’s Kitchen delivers three nutritional meals a day, seven days a week at no charge to men, women and children living with AIDS or cancer. Additionally, Mama’s Kitchen provides pantry services (Mama’s Pantry) and nutrition education to people affected by AIDS. Through...

Review: Super China Buffet – La Mesa

By on Jul 11, 2013 in Buffet, Eat

We recently tried Super China Buffet in La Mesa after our spa day at The Total Woman Day & Spa in Mission Valley. It’s $8.99 for a weekday lunch. We were actually looking for  China Buffet since we  see their TV commercials daily and we thought one of these days… But we were on the highway and for some reason we just could not find their restaurant through Google. So we decided to try this La Mesa buffet. It’s located inside La Mesa Springs Shopping Center with plenty of parking. The restaurant is large and seats about 100 people. There’s two seating areas, one in front and one in the back. When we walked in the first thing we noticed was a pretty nice selection of sushi. I really enjoyed the food selection. A few of my favorites were dim...

A night of indulgence at Kelvin Restaurant

By on Aug 27, 2012 in Eat

We were invited to sample the new restaurant at the W Hotel in San Diego Downtown, Kelvin. Upon our arrival, we noticed that it was a tad warm outside so we opted for inside seating. Kelvin is a unit of measurement for temperature, but it is also the measurement most often used for the color of light sources. The decor reflects this, with beautiful and colorful lighting. It features both individual and communal style seating that creates a warm atmosphere. Our server, Brent, presented each dish with an explanation of the ingredients and the cooking process. We started off with some complimentary bread and cocktails. We got Blackberry Margarita Cocktails and Honey High Ball and Ginger, both perfect for a warm late summer night. After getting our drinks, Jeremy, the Drinks and Food Manager, introduced himself and welcomed us...

Anthology – Live Music and Dinner Venue

By on Aug 22, 2012 in Eat, See

If you’re looking for a live music and fine dining venue look no further than Anthology located in Little Italy. Framed quotes and paintings of famous artists who’ve inspired many decorate the venue. The inviting atmosphere makes this a great spot for a date, business meeting, or night out with friends. The layout allows the acoustics to be equally desirable regardless of where you sit, making it a great place to view your favorite artist and also discover new talent. There’s nothing more inspirational than a good live show, the atmosphere, audio, and lighting are integral parts of that experience and Anthology does a good job of bringing these elements together. The entertainers also appear on a screen behind them displaying different viewing angles so you don’t miss a thing. If you’re not interested in watching a show but want...
