Brian's & Dolce Freddo...& Chow recap

Pooh and I decided to try a new place for breakfast so we went to Brian's American Eatery in Hillcrest! The food was great, the portions were gigantic, and the prices were definitely reasonable! The menu is pretty extensive and offers a wide variety of yummy selections. Brian's is simple yet charming in style, and satisfies ten times more than Denny's. Yea, I said it. =P There's so much on the menu to try so I guess I should visit Brian's often!

I had waffles with a sunny-side-up egg...(the only way I like em!)...oh and Pooh's honey biscuit (he's on his low carb diet again).

Pooh had a Chorizo Omelette with a side of sliced tomatoes instead of potatoes :)...and I had his honey biscuit!


Pooh and I went with our friend to Dolce Freddo, a new yogurt place in Hillcrest. These yogurt places seem to be popping up everywhere. (o.O) There's one being built just a block away from our house. We're excited because it looks like it'll be a cool place to hang out! There's also a pinkberry being built just a couple blocks away from our house as well.

Anyway, I got green tea yogurt with mochi toppings...

it was nice n creamy...definitely yummy! and I love mochi!

Our friend got blueberry yogurt with strawberry toppings...

I tried it...and it was pretty good...but mine was better! :)

Pooh didn't get any since he's low carb :(

ahh well..


Going back in time...(it's my blog...it doesn't matter if I go in chronological order!)...to a time...before Pooh's low carb diet...

Last week Pooh and I went to Chow Noodle House in Hillcrest. We noticed that Celadon had relocated to it's newer, hipper, prettier, trendier location on Fifth Ave in Hillcrest - which we'll have to try sometime. In it's place is Chow Noodle House - a pleasant harmony of Vietnamese, Thai, Japanese and Chinese cuisine. Chow is stylishly sleek and contemporary in design so we were caught off guard by how inexpensive everything was! The highest priced entree was $11!?!? The wine and alcohol was reasonably priced as well. But could something so cheap taste good?

We started with appetizers. We asked the waiter what he recommended. And so we tried the recommended Fresh Spring Rolls...

They were extremely tasty and definitely recommendation material!

We then moved on to entrees. Pooh tried the Japanese 360degree Beef.

I tasted it. The meat was so succulent and savory...I really enjoyed it!

I had the Vietnamese Noodle Soup (pho).

It tasted really really good! However, the only thing that put me off was that in the back of my mind I knew that I could get the same thing for much less at a normal Vietnamese Soup/pho house...but the quality and taste is much better at Chow.

Pooh and I went on a double date with some friends and took them to Chow a couple days later (which I posted in a previous post). I was then able to try a different entree - Drunken Noodles with beef. It was excellent!

Chow has definitely been added to our frequent "Dining-Out" list. :)


3 new places to eat...and all of them great in their own way :) I LOVE food!!!! If you're ever in the area...you might want to stop by one of these fabulous places! Enjoy!

San Diego Pride Weekend Pt. 2

So Pooh and I drove home from our friends house after a crazy night of alcoholism and gayness. We washed up, changed, and were pretty hungry! We went to City Bagel just a block away from our house to have some breakfast :)

We went home to chill for a while...then decided to be random and buy a new bed! (which I posted in a previous post)

After putting it together...we met up with some friends at the pride festival in Balboa.

ah yes...pride...where gay forces unite, and create...captain planet.

Pooh and I actually didn't stay long. We were pooped from the bonfire and putting our new bed together, so we jut said hi and bye to our friends.

well that was it for our pride celebration! Mucho fun-o!

...later that day...

Two of our buddies from out of town were going back home so we had dinner before they left. We took them to a new place called Chow Noodle House. Chow is now where Celadon used to be :)

The food was really yummy! I'll put up a post on the restaurant soon. There's a lot about the place that I'd like to share. I recommend anyone in the area to definitely check it out!

We were pretty sad to see our friends go, but I can't wait next time :)


San Diego Pride Weekend

I've been meaning to post this for quite some time, but just haven't had much time to sit down with my laptop.

Last week was San Diego Pride weekend. Pooh and I didn't really do much, but we were able to meet up with some friends from out of town and hang out.

We went to the "System of a Downe's" Bonfire in La Jolla. Pooh and I are good friends with some of the people that hold the event every year so we usually go to say hi :)

At the bonfire, we were able to meet up with friends from out of town and also made some new friends! ...some pretty HOT friends...:)

We were all given name tags so we could meet people...

joanna was pretty creative...

ours only made sense when we were together...

oh and yes...we were drunk :)
::insert flashback sequence here::

::haha back to the bonfire::
there weren't just hot guys there...there were also lots of hot girls there too!
but back to the hot guys...

Pooh and I finally got to meet some friends we made online but never met in person!

Afterwards...we crashed at our friend's house.
Pooh passed out right away...
...the rest of us built forts out of the sofas and cushions!

it was a long and tiring drive home the next morning =T


New bed!

Pooh and I haven't found any time to paint our room yet...but we went out and got ourselves a new bed :) I thought I'd share some pics with you guys! Here's just a sneak peak of our room...it's not done yet though!...we stil have a lot of ideas in fixing up our bedroom.
