California Crisp is a stand located in the food court of Stonestown Galleria. It serves salads, pastas, and sandwiches. They are most famous for the salads. It is a great option compared to the other selections in the food court. I would highly recommend the tostada salad. The dressing is so tasty and the tortilla chips in the salad add a delicious crunchy texture. They make the salads relatively fast. The only downside is that for a salad it is a little expensive. Overall, I would recommend California Crisp as a good alternative to fast food and it is worth the try.
This fabric store is steps above the rest. They mainly specialize in fabrics for furniture and drapery, but they also have cotton fabris used for apparel and things like that. They have an extensive collection of fabrics and they are conveniently placed on rolls that are hung from the walls. It is really easy to see all the fabrics available. They are also very helpful when you are trying to look for some type or pattern of fabric. The prices are very reasonable and the ladies will cut more than you ask for but charge you at the lower price.
Noodle town is a Korean restaurant located on Convoy in a plaza. It is a decent sized Asian restaurant. The food here is okay, Some days the food is better than others. With the close proximity of other Korean restaurants, I would not recommend coming here. The BBQ beef came out in small bits that were not worth eating and it did not taste that flavorful. The service was okay and the restaurant is pretty clean. Overall, I would rather not come here.
J Music Studio is the place to be for some fun drunken singing with your friends. The prices can add up to a lot but you can split it with all the friends you stuff into your room. The music selection is great! They usually keep their music fairly updated with songs you would hear off the radio. You can sing as loud as you want here and the rooms are pretty spacious. They also give you tamborines if you ask for them. The videos are kind of random but that is to be expected of an Asian karaoke place. Also, if you want to bring stuff into the rooms like food or drinks, they are usually pretty lenient. This place can get very crowded on a weekend so if there is a line, don't try to wait because it usually takes too long for the next group to leave.
Min Sok Chon is easy to miss when you are driving on convoy. It is in the corner of this small plaza. Min Sok Chon is more of the pricier side in terms of food. I think the food tastes alright here and there are definitely places that have better Korean food. If you like spicy food, try the chicken wings because they will make you cry. The kimchi fried rice with spam is good but kind of overpriced. The main reason to come here is the SOJU (Korean alcohol). You can also karaoke here if you ask for your own room. They will serve you food and alcohol in here too! I highly recommend the yogurt soju. It masks the alcohol very well. Happy hours are earlier in the day but you can get soju at half off, so if you are looking to try it for the first time, come here at that time. The service is slow and the lighting is so dim that you can barely see, but overall it is a good place to eat and relax with your friends.
I used to come here all the time to get kim bop, the Korean sushi. It is a great afterschool snack and when you wrap it in the Korean seaweed they sell here, it tastes ever better! First Korean Market has all the Asian snacks you can need and a lot of the Korean homemade snacks like kim chee and the bean sprouts made on a regular basis. I love kim bop and Korean seaweed and this place always satisfies my craving.
Plaza Cafe is the dining hall located at Revelle College at UCSD. It is known for its homestyle comfort foods. I would highly recommend the chicken wings/ strips here. They are the best on all of campus. The grill serves decent food and the homestyle food is always offering some daily special. The pizza is okay and so is the random ethnic food option. The ice cream part takes forever, so I wouldn't suggest ordering from here. Overall, Plaza is a decent dining hall and has plenty of seating, but come here for the AWESOME chicken strips.
Foodworx is the small dining facility located in Sixth College. There is no indoor seating so good luck if you come here on a rainy day. They mainly offer pizza, sandwiches, and salad. If you do not live in Sixth college, there really is no reason to come here. The breadsticks are pretty good and so are the salads, but there is not much selection in terms of food. The salad supposed is made from lettuce that was passed down from Plaza. I would highly recommend eating at another dining hall. There is also an option to buy some "grocery" type things like cereals and soups.
Cafe Ventanas is the dining hall located at ERC on the UCSD campus. It is the newest and nicest dining hall. The fine dining here is extremely overpriced, but if you have the meal points to spare, I would definitely try it. Cafe V has a wide variety of selection but the food doesn't taste that great. It is one of the few places that you can get sushi at with meal points. They also have a variety of Asian snacks like Pocky or Mochi ice cream. It is clean and the staff is amiable. Overall, Cafe V has okay food with a nice atmosphere.
OVT is one of the better dining halls on UCSD campus. OVT offers a wide selection of food from the grill to the Mexican food to the deli to the Asian food. The grill is a good late night choice because OVT does not close until 1am. The fries are cheap and tasty. The burritos here are HUGE and good. The salads made here are better than most other dining halls. Overall, this is a good late night option and has a lot to offer for a reasonable price.
