Oh, Some passer-by tells me “Pedestrian Crossing”
Ah..! And here i thought I was so SMS lingo savvy… 😛
So .. a quick stroll to dinner has us walking past the chocolate factory…
Its amazing the amount of sweet things that Californians eat, and the women still look so fit (especially the ones running round the park) !
How do they do it..
Pass the art gallery, and I know I am not suppose to take photos, but technically, I am not IN the gallery.. and OH… I could not resist it! My favourite childhood book character…
Dr Seuss! “How do you do Sir…?”
All this gorgeous scenery and walking around is making us hungry..
Ah… we see it! This is my favourite Contemporary Californian restaurant in La jolla…
Introducing Georges at the Cove!
I have been here before, but the view from the Ocean Terrace never ceases to amaze me. This time we are in time for the sunset, and it is spectacular.
On the Ocean Terrace, you can balance the breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean with a breath of fresh air as you take in the region’s best rooftop dining.
White chocolate martinis are a must! No better way to start dinner !
As the saying goes… That’s life! And this sure is the life !!
C’est La Veev is an inspiringly refreshing drink made from veev acai spirit, blueberries and cucumber. I really like this one!
Just as the sun goes down over the horizon, they serve the starters… George’s signature soup – chicken broccoli! Very, very good!
Fresh mussels follow soon after, and they are nothing short of delicious.
Seared rare tuna served on a bed of soba noodle salad, with wasabi soy vinaigrette. Perfection in a bowl…
Grilled Mexican shrimp on citrus risotto. Flawless.
Cod fish served on a bed of corn… low carb but high in taste… that’s what I call a meal! lol…
We take a second to catch our breath.. but as our waiter brings out the dessert menu, our eyes fall on the Snicker Sundae !
How to resist?
Chocolate banana cream pie was the straw that broke the camels back.. and we could not eat another morsel of food.
As a parting drink we each had a La Jolla Winter – white Godiva, Chambord, Frangelico, steamed milk, dash of cinnamon, served in a brandy snifter… and was thankful for the experience of dining at such a cool place.
It was with some sadness, that we said goodbye to the beautiful La Jolla, but no matter… we vowed to come back real soon 🙂
