Georges at the Cove- California Modern

What is PED XING?
<span class=

Oh, Some passer-by tells me “Pedestrian Crossing”

Ah..! And here i thought I was so SMS lingo savvy… 😛

<span class=

So .. a quick stroll to dinner has us walking past the chocolate factory…

<span class=

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..

<span class=

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…?”

<span class=

All this gorgeous scenery and walking around is making us hungry..

<span class=

Ah… we see it! This is my favourite Contemporary Californian restaurant in La jolla…

Introducing Georges at the Cove!

<span class=

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.

<span class=

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.

<span class=

White chocolate martinis are a must! No better way to start dinner !

<span class=

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!

<span class=

Just as the sun goes down over the horizon, they serve the starters… George’s signature soup – chicken broccoli! Very, very good!

<span class=

Fresh mussels follow soon after, and they are nothing short of delicious.

<span class=

Seared rare tuna served on a bed of soba noodle salad, with wasabi soy vinaigrette. Perfection in a bowl…

<span class=

Grilled Mexican shrimp on citrus risotto. Flawless.

<span class=

Cod fish served on a bed of corn… low carb but high in taste… that’s what I call a meal! lol…

<span class=

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?

<span class=

Chocolate banana cream pie was the straw that broke the camels back.. and we could not eat another morsel of food.



<span class=

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.

<span class=

It was with some sadness, that we said goodbye to the beautiful La Jolla, but no matter… we vowed to come back real soon 🙂
