OMG we're eating at a Mimi's on the EAST coast! So missed it. Maybe Coldstone for dessert? Just need a Marie Callender's next...

I love ColdStone... it's so yummy! And yeah, I'm with you on the Marie Callender's. Top it off with a Tastycake and you've wrapped up the east coast experience!

Oh how I missed Tastykakes when I was in San Diego. And, for some reason, they didn't carry Archway icebox chocolate chip cookies, either. Care packages from home were wondrous indeed. :) (Fortunately they opened up a Chik-Fil-A not too far, and nolly and I made a road trip out there after it opened - yum!)

The cheesesteak place in the Parkway Plaza food court in El Cajon uses Amoroso's rolls! Oh yes they do!

Oh, wow! NEVER thought I'd see that in SoCal. When we get back, we're so making a trip there. :)

A New Orleans-themed restaurant, although they're not exclusively that menu. Was introduced to them in SoCal, and one just opened up not too far from us.

Gee, and if you also throw in a Peacock Cafe you have the holy trifecta of restaurants that serve boring, bland-ass food that you love so dear. Faboo! =P

Mmmm pancit! Did you know, Alan, that Cristy's on Black Mtn. is in trouble for something?

What's Cristy's, and why are they in trouble?

Cristy's is this Filipino restaurant that serves greasy food and loompia!

Ah. The only place Q ever took me was someplace in National City, a buffet thing. It was OK. Other than that in 7 years he's only cooked for me ONCE (twice if you count breakfast, WHICH I DO NOT!).

Yeah, last time I was in northern VA with the family I discovered a Mimi's at the mall near our house. The fact that there IS a mall near our house now is new, so the existence of a Mimi's, while a bit of a surprise, was far less of one than the existence of a fully-formed mall in what used to be a field when I lived there...

I'd love a mall down here (the closest one is almost an hour away). We're chock full of strip malls, though - bleh.

Oh, and we also found a Chevy's, a California Pizza Kitchen, and a Cheesecake Factory in Annapolis (also an hour away).

LoL That reminds me of Mira Mesa!

Oh how I miss that place!

Me too! Well, not the drivers.

I know. It's just the suburbs, but I miss it so. Still, when Q and I move back, we're definitely thinking Hillcrest - he needs to be within staggering distance of the bars. ;)

LoL I can see you guys moving into one of the condos that they've overbuilt. They're not being bought at all...

When will this move occur?
esprix
Mar. 30th, 2010 08:22 pm (UTC)
I want a house, but Q wants a condo 'cause it's less work. We'll see what happens*.

We're hoping to move by the end of the year, but we said that last year, so...



*Which means he'll probably win.

You guys can do it! Some of the houses in NP (3bd/2b) are selling for under 300k!

Nice, and that's about the size we'd want, too.

Yeah I'll send some links later.
