Filipino Fusion in San Diego with Chef DJ Tangalin

I've been very lucky the last few months to partake in the up and coming Filipino fusion food scene in San Diego with visits to Ocean Pacific Grille in the Gaslamp and Filipino Food and Bakery in Barrio Logan.

Because being a mommy comes before being a foodie, a good friend of mine, Joyce from InnerLotus, hung out with my friends from the San Diego Filipino Blogger Network, to check out Chef DJ Tangalin at JRDN Restaurant at the Tower 23 Hotel in Pacific Beach for me. This is the place where Filipino fusion cuisine is poppin'! 

I was following the Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram feeds while SDFBN enjoyed the evening with Chef DJ Tangalin and my mouth couldn't stop watering!
