Yummy Highlights of 2015

It's true. We've done A LOT of eating and drinking this year at Oh-So Yummy. That's just how us food bloggers roll. Before we post our first official review this year, we wanted to share some highlights from the archives!

So what was popular in 2015?

Grilled Meat at Manna BBQ

The post on Korean BBQ AYCE at Manna Korean BBQ got the most consistent traffic.

Wood Grilled Octopus at Bracero Cocina de Raiz

The biggest spike in traffic hit our Bracero Cocina de Raiz post. It's well deserved because it's also Dennis's favorite restaurant from last year.

Chowder Fries at Ironside Fish and Oyster Bar in Little Italy

These chowder fries from Ironside Fish & Oyster Bar got the most likes on INSTAGRAM. Follow us (ohsoyummyreview) for more!

Restaurant Highlights 2015

taco tuesday at La Puerta in San Diego   tikka taco, vegetable pakora, phall popper, naan at World Curry in Pacific Beach

Everyone loves a good happy hour and La Puerta in downtown San Diego worked out great for us! For a spin on tacos, check out these flavorful tikka tacos from Curry World.

cluckmoo at Henry's Pub during San Diego Burger Week   swine submarine at Soda and Swine in San Diego

We were total gluttons during San Diego Burger Week but this cluckmoo from Henry's Pub was completely worth it. For a lighter sandwich, we recommend the Swine (smoked pork) Submarine from Soda & Swine

butter chicken wings at Pho Ban Mai   chicken and waffles at Crest Cafe in Hillcrest

The wings at our favorite Vietnamese restaurant Pho Ban Mai never disappoint us! The tastiest fried chicken we ate was from Crest Cafe.

pork ribs, brisket, beans, creamed corn at Harmon's Bar-B-Q Catering   plated BBQ and sides at Coops BBQ

Dennis's favorite BBQ was from Harmon's BBQ while I lean more toward Coops West Texas BBQ.

truffle egg toast at Davanti Enoteca in Del Mar   frisee salad at Sbicca restaurant in Del Mar

I was totally loving this decadent Truffle Egg Toast from Davanti Enoteca. Another good dish with an egg was the Frisee Salad from Sbicca.

Salmon at Pacifica Del Mar   panseared salmon, barley and quinoa at BiCE Ristorante in downtown San Diego

Dennis was torn between his favorite salmon dish... the one at Pacifica Del Mar or the one at Bice Ristorante. Both had a marvelous crispy skin to them! The ravioli from Bice was definitely a winner though!

Travel Highlights 2015:

We posted about our travel to California, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, and Texas. Here's two of my favorite posts.

Event Highlights 2015

mariscos fish taco at Harborfest Tacos and Spirits   Martini at Gioia's Room

The event with the BEST VALUE was the Harborfest Tacos and Spirits Revolution. It was $15 for unlimited tacos and only $20 with drinks included. Fantastic price for delicious food and drinks.

The runnerup event was Taste N Tinis with early bird tickets for $20 or $30 day of. I'm seriously a sucker for all those tasty martinis...

chesa kusina at lemon zest and garlic festival 2015

San Diego (and SoCal) got hit by some crazy El Niño rain this week. Thinking back, there was ONE event (Lemon Zest and Garlic Fest) where it also rained cats and dogs. I found amazing garlic fried rice from Chesa Kusina while getting drenched.

Cafe Sevilla paella and patata bravas at Latin Food Fest San Diego   Witch Creek Winery in Carlsbad

I love this photo Dennis took from Cafe Sevilla at the Latin Food Fest and this artsy photo I took at Witchcreek Winery during the Carlsbad Food Tour.

San Diego has multiple "Taste of" events that we attended. They are all great events for the neighborhood:

The fanciest event we attended was the St. Regis Food Wine & Jazz Grand Tasting.

Oh that was an epic roundup. Your SD Burger Week post was the most memorable for me because of the Cluckmoo. I just noticed today Bracero is participating in SDRW.
