George’s Ocean Terrace- La Jolla

  Recently we saw Open Table’s list of the 100 most scenic restaurants in America, and we noted that one of the restaurants on there is also on our list! With our two and a half year anniversary approaching, we finally decided to make the drive up to La Jolla to check out George’s at…

Kensington Cafe- Kensington

We have taken a little hiatus from marking things off the list. Busy summer, you know how it is. Last weekend we were lucky enough to have the whole Bassett clan in town for Labor Day weekend, so we decided to celebrate with brunch (as we do)! After much talking about it, we finally made…

Zorbas Greek Restaurant & Buffet- Chula Vista

Sometimes, the way to find the best places is just get out there and try new things. You will strike out occasionally (see our trip to the fair), but every now and then you find an absolute hidden gem. Spoiler alert: that’s what Zorbas Greek Restaurant & Buffet in Chula Vista is- a complete hidden…

Cantina Mayahuel- Normal Heights

One thing everyone should know about San Diego is that there is no shortage of good Mexican food. Authentic cuisine, taco shops, California burritos, TexMex (limited, for good reason), American style- you name it. Anything you want, San Diego has got it! As you can imagine, locals all have their favorite spots that they frequent….

The Friendly- North Park

  Ian and I have been stuck in a bit of a rut lately. Not relationship-wise (love you boo), but food-wise! We have not been sticking to our motto of trying new places. Instead, we’ve been choosing to go to our old standbys and favorites. So last weekend, we made a pact that we would…

Monello- Little Italy

Let’s talk about two of our favorite food related things this week. Brunch and Italian food. Are you sick of it yet? Too bad!! This is my blog- I write what I want. Anyways… Monello is an adorable Italian restaurant in Little Italy. It is the more down-to-earth little sister of Bencotto (located right next…

San Francisco – Part 2

All right, where did we leave off? Have you been hanging on a thread? Dreaming about ice cream, roasted meats, and chocolate beignets? Well, look no further! Part two is here to fulfill your wildest food fantasies! CHICEST DINNER SPOT- ABSINTHE BRASSERIE & BAR I can’t say enough glowing things about Absinthe. This restaurant has…

San Francisco – Part 1

Recently the Dineamic Duo packed our bags and headed up to the City on the Bay (did you know that was San Francisco? I did not). I had a veterinary conference to attend and I had never been to San Fran before, so Ian was kind enough to accompany me and show me the ropes….

Grater Grilled Cheese– Mission Valley

The Dineamic Duo is very in synch most of the time when it comes to food choices. We like a lot of the same things (hence why we have made it so far). The one thing we differ on is our stance on cheese! Ian is kinda whatever about it. He will only eat it…

URBN North Park

  I’m embarrassed, ya’ll. I have gone on and on about how much Ian loves pizza, but I have dropped the ball on writing blogs about our top pizza places.  This week, I strive to right that wrong. We are going to talk about one of our favorite, go-to pizza places- URBN in North Park….

Trujillo’s SDSU

For this week’s installment, we are going to take a little trip down memory lane. Back in the day, Ian used to have to walk uphill both ways (on my hands, to save my shoes of course – IB) to his college classes at SDSU. One of his favorite places to take his horse and…

Alexander’s on 30th – North Park

This week, I thought we would stick with the Italian theme. Ian and I both have Italian in our lineage, so it is only fitting that it is a type of cuisine we both thoroughly enjoy. The first Italian restaurant Ian took me to here in San Diego was Alexander’s in North Park. Every since…
