Home sweet home, what else can I say? :) Of all the place I've traveled in the world (so far), this golden bay city is my favorite. The weather is gorgeous 95% of the year, and there is no shortage of things to do - from the nightlife bars and clubs to Seaport Village, Balboa Park, Old Town, Sea World,...more
The Coffee Cup is one of a handful of coffee shops who know what they're doing; especially in a beach town like La Jolla, you have to keep up. San Diegans want their java. Coffee Cup is a quintessential coffeehouse - they don't just offer muffins and pastries, but omelets and gourmet egg...more
Definitely some of the BEST pizza I've ever had, hands down. In a bright, airy restaurant (perfect for a lunch ambience), order your pick of Italian cuisine. I inquired about the "white pizza" - which I expected to be like chicken Alfredo on bread. It was a regular tomato sauce/...more
Absolutely the most beautiful winery/vineyards I've ever been to in Southern California. It's so secluded, classy, and full of charm - I felt like I was transported to Italy. The restaurant and patio are set right into the hillside, so your glorious views comprise of the sweeping valley...more
An amazing fine dining experience - every meal is under 475 calories and they are delectable. The mini dessert shots are a great touch, and the wine list is extensive. Great ambience with live classic music and soft candlelight too.

Perfect brewery grub - I had a tall local craft lager and a juicy dripping burger and was in heaven. Try the plethora of gourmet Mac and cheeses and grilled cheeses, burger concoctions, or pastas and exotic salads, add a local craft beer and you're golden....more
My favorite burger house of all time. There's something about the 50's decor, the dripping juicy burgers, the cherry limeade, or the fact that I've been going there as a tradition since I was 7 years old that just makes it feel like home. Try the teriyaki chicken sandwich....to die...more
Divine cuisine - there's no other way to put it. From the moment you sit down, you are inundated with an array of delicious options: appetizers including their sister restaurant Miguel's famous jalapeño white cheese sauce and red tortilla chips, artichoke heart fritters, and soft...more
I love dueling piano bars - and The Shout House is no exception. The pianists are wickedly talented, and they excel at getting the audience involved in the show. If it's your birthday, you WILL be called on stage and embarrassed in some way - whether tasteful or not. (Hint: I was one of the unlucky...more
