Wow, I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since our last food post. Life has been so busy and it’s been hard to find time to blog these days. Tiffany was craving tacos, so we spontaneously decided to go grab lunch at The Taco Stand in La Jolla. We chose this place because it serves…

[Recommend] Love To Go

Somewhere on a gorgeous street filled with historic character, a tiny, unassuming cafe lies hidden. Upon entering the little space, this cafe doesn’t look like much.

[Recommend] City Heights Coffee House

Coffee shops have become an integral part of many people’s lives. They’re places to meet, hang out, and have deep conversations. In San Diego, there seems to be an over-abundance of cafes to choose from, often leading to decision-paralysis [at least for me]. Among these, City Heights Coffee House has risen as an organization committed not…

[Highly Recommend] Tacos El Gordo | Tijuana Style Street Tacos

I was shocked when Tiffany told me she’s never been to Tacos El Gordo, given her love for Mexican food and the fact that she grew up here in San Diego. Ever since then, we’ve been meaning to remedy such a travesty. Perhaps the most well-known taco joint in San Diego, Tacos El Gordo serves up some…

[Highly Recommend] Breakfast in Taiwan

Taipei Overview Post When life gets busy, it can be hard to find time to sit down and eat a proper breakfast. Sometimes breakfast would be a granola bar on the way to work, or instant oatmeal. There was a period of time in college when I didn’t eat breakfast at all. But let me…
