Bread Whore Enjoys Some Cardamom

You have certain restaurants where you return for any myriad of reasons.  You attach some sense of comfort to the restaurant, a tranquility of place and being that you might be able to articulate or you might not.  Cardamom is one of those places I consistently find myself returning to dine (breakfast/brunch only), a place […]

Fast, Cheap and Full of Veggies

Fast, Cheap and Full of Veggies

While contemplating my inaugural article for Culinary Creative, I thought long and hard about what to write about. It would have to be good. It would have to be memorable. What could I write about that would leave an impression—something beautiful, something innovative, something International? With no inspiration to fit any of those categories, I […]

Dive Deep for Deliciousness [Benny’s Mexican Food]

Dive Deep for Deliciousness [Benny's Mexican Food]

When I moved to the Golden Hill neighborhood nine-years-ago, a friend told me that I had to try the burgers at Benny’s.  I was a bit hesitant, as Benny’s is known for their wide variety of quick Mexican cuisine, but I gave their burgers a whirl and nine years later, I’m still going back for […]

Bread Whore Takes A Stroll Around Ave5

Bread Whore Takes A Stroll Around Ave5

I’m cheap. I used to say I’m frugal; it provided a kind of gravitas, as if I were penny-pinching in order to stockpile enough money to write some astronomically large charity check in the name of some worthy, high-falutin cause. Like cancer research or urban education initiatives or bankrolling the next non-profit. I could also […]

San Diegans are lucky they will soon be able to enjoy organic, whole foods that are satisfying and delicious at a new North Park dining room. Casa de Luz, which will be in a converted Salvation Army building on University, will offer a unique experience in eating out. Eduardo (Wayo) Longoria is the founder of […]

The Curbside Cafe

The Curbside Cafe If you’re looking for a healthy quiet meal, the Curbside Cafe might not be for you. But if you are looking for a place to bring you back to childhood memories of home cooked meals and to convene with friends, plan on staying a while. The Curbside Cafe has been a Vista, […]

Dive Deep for Deliciousness [Surati Farsan Mart]

Dive Deep for Deliciousness [Surati Farsan Mart]

In the Indian language of Gujarati, Surati Farsan Mart translates to sweets and snacks.  For me, a spicy, cozy $5 dollar lunch while watching R-rated Bollywood hits has always been more than worth the drive up highway 15.  A luscious gem off Black Mountain road serving Indian style tapas, spicy, crunchy snacks, sweet, nut-filled candies & […]

Charisma Cucina Italiana

Charisma Cucina Italiana

This trattoria is a fun place with nice atmosphere, and friendly service. We tried them for lunch, and were very impressed. There is nice variety on the lunch menu, with even more choices for dinner. There are many wine varieties (by the glass) at very reasonable prices. The waiter brought a basket of Italian bread […]

BRUNO – Napoletano Pizzeria

BRUNO - Napoletano Pizzeria

Good pizza! Before working with Pizzeria Bruno, I’d never experienced Napoletano pizza and so I was blown away by the flavor. They bake their pies in a wood-fired brick domed oven (which they had custom built in Naples, Italy).  The pizzas are cooked directly on the oven’s volcanic surface—and get this, the oven is more […]

Alchemy

Alchemy

Located in the heart of South Park, Alchemy brings the farm-to-table chickens home to roast. We’re pretty pleased too, because our office is right across the street and they have a great wine selection as well. At the risk of sounding like a booze hound (this is not a denial nor a confession, just so […]
