7 Good Eats You Are Missing Out in San Diego

Nowadays, everyone is a foodie or a food blogger.  If you have a camera phone and an instagram, you’re a food blogger.  It’s that easy.  So, I’m sure you see a lot of dishes going around your newsfeeds.  But, no one talks about the hidden gems.  Well, here are 7 of the most delicious dishes and restaurants in San Diego.

1.  Soda & Swine-University Heights

Make sure you try the Brussels sprouts!

2.  Prep Kitchen- Little Italy

Prep kitchen has a good variety of food, but the steak is divine. 

3. Pizzeria Mozza- The Headquarters  

I could eat Pizzeria Mozza every single day.  It’s beyond delicious.   Recommendation:  The Funghi Pizza

4. Cucina Urbana- Banker’s Hill

If you’re a San Diegan, you know how amazing Cucina Urbana is.  Italian food with a modern twist!

5. Barrio Star- Banker’s Hill

Barrio Star is the place where you have a few drinks with some girlfriends before and after you enjoy the best tacos ever! Their Day of the Dead mood is just perfect. 

6. Greek Islands Café- Seaport Village

No other place in San Diego does Greek the way Greek Islands Café does.  The family owned restaurant serves authentic Greek dishes daily on the waterfront.  What’s better than that!

7. Plumeria Vegetarian- University Heights

If you’re a vegetarian or vegan, this is the place to be in town. All their dishes use organic vegetables when available.   Now you won’t feel bad about splurging on a dish.  

Is anyone else getting really hungry?  Go, my friends and dish away!  Let me know how you like the places.

Serviceman VIP Treatment Prize

Per usual, the 2014 Big Bay Boom fireworks will be happening on 4th of July in San Diego benefiting The Armed Forces YMCA.  The fireworks are launched in several locations including Shelter Island, Harbor Island, Seaport Village and Coronado.  

What will the view be like?  Glad you asked! 

It’s become a tradition for many San Diegans to watch the beautiful fireworks at Seaport Village.  This year, Seaport Village has teamed up with 105.7 The Walrus radio station for some extra fun at the village.  The Walrus will be broadcasting on site on the 4th and giving away prizes throughout the day.  They will also be broadcasting the music that the fireworks are synched to at 9pm, so make sure you tune in!

This year, The Walrus listeners get to nominate a serviceman and his/her family for a chance to win a waterfront balcony fireworks viewing area and catered dinner.  Best prize ever!

Send your nominations to Nolan and Kim at to honor a military member.  They will notify the winner.

If you’re a regular at Seaport Village during the fireworks, I’m sure you know how crazy it gets down here on the 4th.  So, this prize is extra special as it allows a serviceman/woman to enjoy a VIP viewing area away from the crowds. 

Get to nominating and preparing for the 4th.  We sure are!

See you then!

World Cup Merchandise at Sports Headquarters

Are you as crazy as I am about the World Cup?  I don’t blame you.   It’s been a great week of games so far.  And I’m sure you’d want to support your team as much as possible, right?

Well, Sports Headquarters located inside Seaport Village has the World Cup merchandise to help you do just that!  Jerseys, jackets,  team t-shirts, hats, and so much more! 

But wait that’s not all!! If you’re shopping at the village while the games are on, you can go into Sports HQ and watch the games live on their TVs!  Can you say grade A service or what!?


So, stop by and get in the world cup spirit with your team’s merchandise!  And hey, maybe stay there and watch the whole game.  We won’t tell your family.
