San Diego Edition
Hi everyone! I have risen from the dead with a very special San Diego Edition!
I ended my internship last week and had the opportunity to drive down to San Diego to meet with my sister and help her set up her 1st grade classroom. It was ridiculously hot but her classroom is now complete with my sweat and grime (ew) but its ok! The kids are happy :)
In return for my hard work, my sister treated me out to a lot of delicious food places that I thought I’d share with you guys! :) HERE WE GO!
We were actually planning to go to a restaurant next door… but decided to come to Mimmo’s because they had more selection!
Super cute inside and looks like an Italian courtyard!
Great for kids with their kids menu: comes with a Drink, Pizza and Ice Cream!
Their bread+olive oil is seriously to die for. DON’T fill up on it though!
Sad to say, I didn’t take a picture of their pasta. :( We were too hungry! However, I’d highly recommend the Spicy Sausage Corkscrew pasta. The Margherita pizza above is delicious too!
My family really enjoyed it and we all agreed it was one of the best Italian food places we’ve ever had! Coming from a person who doesn’t care for Italian food, I’d definitely want to come here again :)
If you go to Mimmo’s, you might as well walk a couple blocks to Extraordinary Desserts! Known for their elaborate designs and desserts, this place is definitely a place for sweet tooths :3
The wait isn’t so bad and we managed to wait only 20 mins for a table for 6!
This is what I mean by very elaborate dessert. Those are real flowers!
Besides cake, they have a variety of other pastries such as this Dulce de Leche Creme Brulee. Although I think I still prefer Vanilla, this creme brulee was absolutely delicious! :D Highly recommended.
We also ordered the Tortamisu. It’s very similar to a tiramisu but in a cake form! When you order to eat there, they decorate the plates with chocolate sauce and flowers :)
When coming to San Diego, you HAVE to get Mexican food. It’s a must!
We got the infamous Carne Asada Fries, my personal favorite :) Two of these bad babies fed 4 adults and 2 kids. And there was more left over @_@
I also recommend their Pollo Asada Fries. Delicious!
Tajima Ramen House
And because the previous restaurant was fairly short, here is a bonus restaurant! You gotta hit up the Asian food too right?
Great ramen house that is super busy on weekends! Thank gawd we came on a Tuesday :)
We ordered their famous Takana Fried Rice. It features spicy pickled mustard greens (takana) mixed in with a variety of other foods, based on the location.
I also got their Tonkotsu Ramen (obviously ^^). A great thing about this place is that they let you make your soup spicy for FREE and customize your noodle size (thin or thick).
What an amazing trip to SD :) I realized there’s a variety of different types of food in this post! And for those of you who are curious, here is the end result to her classroom!
Half of it anyway haha :)
