I rarely go back to places because there are so many new or untried ones. At the same time sometimes what is good is good and first impressions are easy.
Though not a complete list these places are solid.
Swami’s Cafe Oceanside ~ Pataya Bowl (Half size) Pataya smoothie, boysenberries, bananas, strawberries, homemade granola, local fresh bee pollen.
Blue Ocean Robata and Sushi Carlsbad ~ Duck breast, brussel sprouts, sweet potato puree, sweet potato salted twills.
Solterra Winery & Kitchen Encinitas ~ Beef Cheek Empanada, side salad
Solace and Moonlight Lounge Encinitas ~ Happy Hour Oysters
