well we are back from our vacation in sunny san diego.. ohh my word did we have fun.. it was shell's 16th b-day so we took her and her boy friend patrick down to point loma and stayed at my parents condo.. jake and sam came a day later.. we had so much fun.. and boy did we eat.. but boy did we eat good!! we went to knott's berry farm.. the beach.. the swap meet... seaport village.. you name it we did it.. the following are a few of the restaurants we ate at.. and take my word for it they were yummy..
in first place..
Luigi's at the Beach.. found here..
we had the pete's spicy and sweet pizza.. which is pineapple, jalapenos, pepperoni and mozzarella.. talk about amazing.. some of the best pizza i've ever had.. they have 28 beers on tap.. 25 of which are locally brewed.. it's a wonderful place.. we really enjoyed our lunch here after a morning at the beach with ollie and company..
one night for dinner we ate at Volare Italian Restaurant.. (i can't seem to find their website...)
out of the way place in point loma.. surrounded by dirty book stores and strip joints.. but the food is awesome.. pete and jake both had veal parm.. and said it was the best they have ever had.. sam had clams in a garlic broth and said it was the best she had ever had.. i had spinach ravioli with a gorgonzola alfredo sauce.. talk about decadent and creamy.. simply delish.. shell had pasta and loved it.. patrick had veal picatta and said it was amazing and the best part our bill with tip ended up being 137.00..
after the swap meet we went down to ocean beach and had lunch at tower two cafe.. right on the water.. wonderful outdoor dining.. i had lobster tacos.. yumm. pete and sam had the fish and chips.. very good.. the atmosphere is so laid back and relaxing.. very nice place to have lunch..
one night we had dinner at seaport village.. shelled out over 300 bucks and it was alright.. you don't expect to say the food was alright when you've paid nearly 50.00 a person.. but hey the view was nice..
all in all a wonderful trip.. we laughed till we cried.. we ate till we cried (or slumped on the couch in a food coma).. ha.. it was a nearly perfect weekend.. :o) soo take my word for it.. go to san diego and eat.. alot!!!
