San Diego California is one of my favourite U.S cities. It is glorious even in December when the rest of us lumber along in the cold snowy world. I am happy to be here anytime but, coming from the cold makes me extra grateful and even flying into the airport is a pretty view of the harbour.
Make sure to walk along the harbour and take a tour aboard the USS Midway Museum. Right next door is the always yummy Fish Market Seafood Market and Restaurant with a wonderful view of the water. We always have a lunch there and enjoy bowls of Clam Chowder and Ginger Lime Prawns and lots of other great things on the menu.
We also came back for fresh fish we bought for our Grilled Tuna Tacos. See my recipe to make it at home.
We enjoyed a delicious brunch at Peohe's on Coronado Island This is a great place for wonderful California cuisine and fresh favourites like this crab stack with layers of crab, mango and avocado. Don't forget to order a split of champagne!
I enjoyed some coconut crunchy shrimp and a sensational bowl of coconut and chicken soup.
The seafood Cobb salad was fresh and absolutely huge.
Everything else we ordered from the cool gazpacho to the slushy cocktails like this Pomegranate Mojito was as perfect as the view and company!
You must make a special point to stop in at the Extraordinary Desserts - this is the little Italy location for a out of this world dessert and coffee.
how can you pick just one?
beauty and substance!
I always make a point to order a different spectacular cake when I come to town. This time it was the Truffle Framboise. It was worth every calorie!!!
And remember life is short celebrate good times and friends with good food and good champagne!
