French Concession

DIM SUM during the week you say? That's not normal (except in Convoy)! But now there's a new restaurant in Hillcrest called French Concession that IS open with your choice of favorite dim sum items from noon to 10pm, any day of the week. The catch... don't expect any servers pushing carts or the typical round tables with lazy susans. Instead, this place has normal table service and a more 'chic' feel.

Casa de Reyes

Last Sunday, we headed to Old Town for our third visit in the month of December! We're already breaking our typical 1-2 visits PER YEAR for Old Town! As Dennis and I drove in, we lucked out and got a parking spot very close to the plaza. The moment we left the car, we were enveloped by the inviting scent of tortillas, freshly made every day, which made us even hungrier! After being greeted by the friendly hostress, we were seated.

Nozomi Noodles and Teriyaki

In the Convoy area, there are so many asian restaurants to choose from but parking is quite difficult, especially during peak times! One day, Dennis and I first found parking, took a look around, and then decided on Nozomi Noodles and Teriyaki restaurant nearby.

One of the daily specials was to order $30 worth of food and get a free appetizer.

Spirits of Mexico Tequila Trail 2013 Review Part 2 of 2

And the Tequila Trail continues from part 1!

Inside the Cosmopolitan Hotel bar area, they were serving El Jimador, which actually did well in the competition in previous years. It's funny that once you learn about something, all of a sudden it's everywhere! I've been noticing this brand in the stores ever since last year...

Spirits of Mexico Tequila Trail 2013 Review Part 1 of 2

The Spirits of Mexico Festival is in its 10th year of production with this being the 3rd year of participation for San Diego. We attended the Tequila Trail 2012 last year and had a blast!

To start, we picked up our tickets at will-call, which was located off San Diego Avenue and Twiggs Street. Just look for the big pop-up tents and workers, then pick up your will-call tickets or purchase them on the spot. Then you can take a look at the printed map and visit any of the locations in any order you please! On the back of the map was a list of restaurants and tequilas and we were pleased to see more than half of the tequilas were new to us! How exciting!

Davanti Enoteca (Del Mar)

Davanti Enoteca was introduced to me through a book club meeting a few months back. My friend that picked the restaurant compared it to Cucina Urbana, which itself is quite the popular place and quite delicious! For San Diego Restaurant Week Fall 2013, dinner was a three course meal for $30/person

We had a choice between 4 appetizers, 3 entrees, and 3 desserts.
