My beautiful daises, I know I have been MIA for a bit, but that’s because I was on vacation in San Diego, California for a week. As I am writing this, I am flying back home. I have a layover in Salt Lake City, Utah then I am home bound to Washington! I am going to miss the hot weather because it’s raining and cold where I live. I want to divide my vacation post into three parts. This part will be about all the places we went to eat, because let me tell you! My poor bank account! The second blog post will be about all the beaches we visited and the third and final vacation post will be about some of the sights we saw. I feel like it will be easier this way instead of doing a post for each day.
I flew to San Diego with my sister and two cousins for my sister’s, Alyona’s birthday. Alyona’s favorite animal our pandas so for her birthday we decided to go to San Diego Zoo in California, since that is the closest pandas to Washington. When we booked this trip I was on summer vacation from school, so I ended up missing a week of classes this week. I have a lot to catch up on for school but I will try to get you guys the other 2 posts ASAP!
Anyway lets start this post! I will post some of our favorite places we tried and one or two of restaurants that were ehh…
We checked out Better Buzz Coffee in two different locations but were impressed with the one in Mission Beach. We went back their twice and got amazing service and the coffee tasted sooo good! The one we tried at Fashion Valley Mall was ehhh.
We tried two different gelato places and loved the first one! The first one we went to was at Coronado Island which was called Nado Gelato Cafe . The second place was Chocolat Hillcrest. The inside of it was pretty and they also serve crepes but they were kind of spendy and we weren’t too impressed with the gelato.
While on San Diego we decided to try their sushi and see how it compares to ours in Washington. I don’t know why but we did not like any of the places we went to! Maybe we just went to the wrong ones? The one that was kind of okey, was Saiko Sushi at Coronado Island. The only reason I am listing it is because their edamame was sooo good! It was covered in celery salt and garlic! Defiantly something I want to recreate when I get home!
We tried the best fish tacos at Imperial Beach at El Tapatio Restaurant. I am craving them so much right now! The price was also pretty amazing! If you are ever at Imperial Beach I would recommend stopping by here!
Another great place we discovered that was a few minutes from our hotel was 85 degrees Bakery Cafe. This bakery is AHHHMAZING! I was sooo happy we decided to try it! The best part was that they are open till midnight so this was our go to for late night snacks! I tried their grapefruit green tea and their yudane dough filled with chocolate chips and cream cheese, it was to die for!!!
And of course we can not forget In-N-Out! As soon as we checked into the hotel we asked the front desk where the nearest In-N-Out was and guess what it was just a few minutes from our hotel! I think we ate here EVERYDAY and I am not even joking!
I am so sorry this ended up being a long post but I wanted to get all the places we tried and liked and would recommend for anyone that will be in San Diego! I know I’ve missed a couple places but these were the top we liked! Thank you so much for still being here with me even though I am slacking on these posts! I will try better! Promise! ❤
