Dumpling Inn (Kearney Mesa)

One of our very favoritist restaurants in this area, Dumpling Inn recently moved 2 doors down into an enormous space which is just as packed as it was before when they were in a broom closet. Food quality has not suffered one bit. Tonight we sat in the back room at a table for six and enjoyed 5 trays of...

Original Pancake House (Poway)

What’s better than a girls breakfast out after a sleepover? Nothing! Turkey bacon and avocado omelet, strawberry pancakes, and scrambled eggs with ham. It was a busy morning at OPH since it was Easter Sunday morning. We got a late start at home due to Mom – the girls had been up for hours – we made it there at...

Love Boat Sushi (Big Bang Sushi) – Rancho Bernardo

Not the easiest parking lot to leave (you can only go E on RB road or S on Wed Bernardo) but the food is great! The sushi is carefully and exquisitely crafted by Japanese sushi chefs.

The Board at The Barrel Room (Rancho Bernardo)

We plop the sugared walnuts right on top of the sandwiches. 3 meats and 3 cheeses are...

And when they tell your Chinese colleague that a special soup is “for ladies” then like any good man, he caves to the mysteries of woman-hood and feels compelled to order it for...

Send off for a longtime employee. Sad, but I also laughed so hard I almost peed my pants. That is what a wake is all about. The Irish are nuts, but also right on. MOSTRA MOCHA STOUT Milk Stout – 5.1% Simulating a mocha coffee drink and is incredibly easy drinking Brewed with Guana cacao nibs and Mostra Fortissimo Espresso ...

Saturday morning pancakes

Cooked by my daughter. Is there anything better? Oh yes, her discovering that she needs to serve her guests first, resulting in Dad eating her "favorite" pancake.
