Yelper Madeline F., who reviewed Hopnonymous Brewing on Jan. 11, wrote, "We found Hopnonymous in our search for new beer and what a find it has been! The beer is flavorful and the owner is welcoming."
Similarly, Yelper John S. added, "Pretty impressed by their IPA lineup. My favorite IPA was their Plan of Attack. It's a solid, well-balanced West Coast-style IPA. Not too aggressive, but enough nose, foretaste and aftertaste. Definitely would recommend this spot to a friend."
Hopnonymous Brewing is open from noon–9 p.m. on Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.–10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m.–9 p.m. on Sunday.
7351 Clairemont Mesa Blvd.
PT Eatery is a Vietnamese spot serving salads, sandwiches, pho bowls, rice paper wraps, vegetarian dishes, seafood and more.
PT Eatery's current rating of 3.5 stars out of 25 reviews on Yelp indicates the newcomer is finding its way, but it's still early days.
Yelper Jenny T., who reviewed the restaurant on Jan. 1, wrote, "PT Eatery is, simply put, a more Americanized and modernized version of the original Phuong Trang restaurant. The food quality is pretty much on par with the original Phuong Trang."
Yelper Faye L. added, "I enjoyed the meal and would probably come here over Phuong Trang, as PT Eatery is more open and less crowded. The menu isn't as large but still offers a wide range of dishes. I felt the prices were fair as the portions were hearty."
PT Eatery is open from 11 a.m.–9 p.m. daily.
