I’ve got another post of recent eats while being here in San Diego!
I’m loving finding all of these different places to grab food and enjoy the atmosphere. There is something so refreshing about having a moment to indulge in some scrumptious food. If you’re planning a trip to San Diego make sure you add some of these restaurants to your list of food places to enjoy.
See my other recent San Diego eats post right here; this is going to become a regular thing on the blog so stay tuned!
SMOKING GUN %
Y’all, this place is absolutely amazing.
While Beth was in town we were hosted by the Smoking Gun for their Walk of Champagne Brunch and I’m not going to lie – it was beyond scrumptious. The staff was delightful and walked us through their menu and how they prepare their drinks and food, all super fresh! I loved the retro feel of the restaurant with all of their menus, and dishes. It was also a nice nod to some southern food and it comforted my south carolinian soul. 🙂
I ordered | Breakfast Sliders with the Mimosa Flight. The cayenne aioli was SUCH A GOOD TOUCH and definitely not that spicy. If you’re going for brunch, seriously give it a go! The mimosa flight was so tasty with such different flavors! Yum Yum Yum!!!
Beth Ordered | Bagel French Toast with Vanilla-Agave Cream Cheese & a fluffy orange juice. She said that she was nervous that the bagel wouldn’t be as soft for a french toast, but that it ended up being perfect! Also their juices are freshly squeezed in house and that makes a difference!
SUGAR & SCRIBE
This is in the heart of downtown la jolla and when we were looking at a place to grab some lunch while exploring the area we stumbled upon this and I’m so happy we did! They have a super cute shop inside where you can order baked goods, coffee, and some other fun things! It’s also the restaurant of a champion chef who was featured on the Food Network.
I ordered | The Sligo Scramble and it was SO TASTY! Their jam was so fresh and when it came out I thought “wow that’s a lot of food, I probably won’t finish it”; well I did finish it and I was so happy I did.
Beth ordered | Brioche French Toast. The whipped cream looked like ice cream and Beth said it was beyond tasty. I think I may have to go back and order this for the next time!
After exploring Torrey Pines with Beth we ended up just driving into Del Mar to grab some grub at Americana Restaurant.
I Ordered | I am a little bit more of a complicated orderer and built my own burger. Ill be the first to admit I judge a place if a burger is on the menu and this did not disappoint! I did a beef burger with adding caramelized onions, avocado, and goat cheese. Their french fries also have what seems like oregano and other spices which make them soooooo good!
Beth Ordered | Fish & Chips. The minute she saw it on the menu she was all “I have to have this” haha! It really looked so good!
