    Hi Jenny! I saw an Instagram picture of your meal at Hash House one day, and since my husband, best friends and I were on our way to San Diego for a little vacation I made sure we stopped by! It was a great meal, thanks for the recommendation. We couldn’t believe how enormous the portions were, or just how delicious everything was!

    El Salvadoreno, in Grant Hill off Imperial Avenue, is very tasty if you’re looking for a different cuisine.

    Goody’s Sushi Bar & Grill in National City (off Mile of Cars way) is by far one of the best sushi spots and totaly unexpected.

    If you love dessert (and wine), you have to try Extraordinary Desserts. They have the tastiest desserts and the presentation is amazing. It’s always a fun surprise when my hubby takes me there. They also serve, cheese plates, salads and panini’s. There are 2 locations – Balboa Park and Little Italy. Definitely try it out 🙂

    Urbana Cucina! My family and I went out there about a week ago for my birthday/babymoon and they had hands down some of the best things I have eaten. Stuffed squash blossoms, gnudi in sage brown butter and a bechamel lasagna!

    You should definitely try out Peterson’s Donuts, it is a local gem, open 24/7. The BEST and largest donuts in all of North County San Diego. It has been featured on many tv shows. Their maple bars are the size of bricks. Definitely try their cronuts (Thursday-Sunday Only!), maple bar and enjoy watching them make all of their sweet treats from their large side window. I live close by and would love to treat you!

    North Shore Cafe – Mission Beach

    Ocean view, Large portions (enough for two to share) and very reasonably priced.

    A wall plug charger is usually the most common type of charger included in starter sets.
    It is non-tobacco and non-inflammable product and it does not have
    any harmful effects that are often found in traditional smoking.
    Either that, or they are using the highly controversial e-cigarette to cover
    up the fact that the fire was the hospital’s fault.

    Filippi’s Pizza Grotto is my favorite place to eat in S.D. but you have to get there early – the line can be daunting but it’s so worth the wait!!!
