During my trip to San Diego last weekend, it quickly became apparent that Southern California is full of incredible spots where foodies can indulge their tastebuds. I had the most delicious meals…So delicious that I felt they were worth writing about! These spots were just too good not to share with you all…
Breakfast: The Naked Cafe
3555 Rosecrans Ave. San Diego, CA 92110
My Recommendation: Coconut French Toast
This little cafe was packed when Tyler & I walked in on Saturday morning. Cozy, intimate atmosphere & great menu with some pretty incredible culinary creations. I’ll give it to you like this- If I lived in San Diego, I would, without a doubt, be a regular.
Breakfast/Lunch: Kono’s Surf Club
704 Garnet Ave. San Diego, CA 92109
My Recommendation: Everything!
Kono’s serves breakfast all day long (which helped when Tyler & I slept til noon on Sunday morning, hehe) and is just a few steps away from the sands of beautiful Pacific Beach. As soon as we walked in, we felt so welcomed. The man who took our order joked around with us & was genuinely interested in having us as guests. As we were walking out, he shouted out “Bye Asia! See you next time!” It’s truly the little things that make the biggest difference in customer service, I tell ya. Yummy food at a great price, and very family-like atmosphere. One minor disclaimer, though: They only take cash, so make sure you have some handy! Oh, and the portions are big so come hungry!
2816 Historic Decatur Road
My Recommendation: Vegetarian Yakitori Bowl
A little bit difficult to find, I admit, but ask one of the nearby valet guys & they’re happy to point you in the right direction. The ambience in this place is incredible, staff is so helpful and friendly, and meals (and beer!) are damn good. Even the bathrooms are cool! They have a nifty little gift shop, and every Monday is Meatless Monday, which definitely struck a chord with me :’) I was so happy to learn that they’re growing and expanding, too – Their next location is opening up in Europe. Hoping you come to Florida next, guys 😉 Seriously, if you’re in the area, GO HERE!
