June Favorites 2021

Is it that time already?! Here are my picks for the month of June!

$ Hawaiian Coffee (Pavaraga Hawaiian Coffee & Cafe); Park (Chicano Park); Chorizo Con Huevo (Las Cuatro Milpas)

$ Bargain

Coffee (Pavaraga Hawaiian Coffee & Cafe): I’m pretty sure I’m in the minority as a non-coffee drinker; regardless, I can still appreciate bold flavors and the Hawaiian coffee at Pavaraga in San Diego is dynamic! and just for $5ish. Check out my full write up here.

Cheap Mexican Food (Las Cuatro Milpas) You’ll have major heart burn, but the food is so cheap and delicious. This popular Mexican mom n pop shop is located in San Diego is I ordered 5 rolled tacos ($5.50) and Chorizo Con Huevo ($5.75). These two items alone probably could feed 3 people if I’m being honest. Read my full review here.

Park (Chicano Park): If you’re looking for an interesting place to enjoy a picnic the Chicano Park in San Diego is a good choice. Read all about it here.

$$ Tea Party (Aubrey Rose Tea Shop); Poke (It’s Raw Poke Shop)’ Lobster Nachos (Lamplight Lounge, DCA)

$$ Moderately Priced

Tea Party (Aubrey Rose Tea Shop): I simply adore this tea house in Las Mesa (San Diego, CA). For $28.95 (per person) you can feel like a proper lady with their 3 tier tea tray set and unlimited tea selection. See my full review here.

Poke (It’s Raw Poke Shop): Authentic Hawaiian poke is hard to come by on the mainland, but It’s Raw Poke Shop does an awesome job in bringing true Hawaiian flavors to Ocean Beach (San Diego, CA). For $15 a plate, you can enjoy 2 scoops of poke and rice (or substitute for edamame or mac salad) right on the beach. Check out my write up here.

Lobster Nachos (Lamplight Lounge in Disney’s California Adventure): Good food with a beautiful view. The lobster nacho portion is quite filling ($21) and I really enjoyed the flavors of all the ingredients together, though you are obviously paying for the spectacular view. Read about my experience here.

$$$ Avengers Campus (Disney’s California Adventures); Cream Puffs (Puffs SD); Snow White Ride to reference the ride at Disneyland

$$$ Splurge

Cream Puffs (@Puffs_SD): Honestly, these are some of the most beautiful cream puffs I’ve ever seen. I think a traditional flavor of that size costs roughly $2.50 and these are more at $4.33 each (but you need to buy in half dozen or full dozen increments). Nevertheless, the flavors are very unique and I would absolutely buy them again on my next San Diego visit. Learn about the ordering process here.

Avengers Campus (Disney California Adventures): The newest land in Disney’s California Adventure is finally open! Avengers Campus was highly anticipated and for obvious reasons my friends and I booked our tickets ($104 -$209) to check it out during Opening Weekend. We were super lucky in getting an early reservation for the new Spiderman ride Webslingers and if you don’t want to wait 4 hours in the standby line just to enter the park you can check out my video here to see what it was like!

Rise of the Resistance & Snow White Ride (Disneyland): I have my favorite rides (Space Mountain, Peter Pan), but on this Disney trip I got to experience Rise of the Resistance and the newly renovated Snow White Ride. Both really are amazing in their own ways and were the highlight of my Disney trip. Curious about the new changes to Snow White? You can watch my ride-through here.

Which of these finds are you hoping to try?

Until Next Time,

Irene
