San Diego bites – George’s at the Cove

George’s at the Cove in La Jolla (San Diego area) is a famous spot for lunch (or dinner) with a gorgeous view. You have to come early or plan ahead with reservations to get a good spot, but the view is worth it.

View from George's at the Cove

Before diving into lunch Mr. Misadventures and I ordered a lovely shrimp ceviche which went down beautifully with ice cold beers and salty chips. Despite being December the sun was out and shining which is exactly the reason we had decided to travel to San Diego for Christmas.

They are famous for their fish tacos which was exactly what I ordered. They are so light and fresh, served with raw vegetables and a delicious mango salsa.

The hubby is not a huge fan of Mexican food so he chose a farro salad with grilled salmon that was to die for!

    P.S. – I wanted to tell you – I made TWO recipes from last week’s list. The herb spatetzel and the pear/ham sandwiches, but I used turkey instead of ham. Both were really good. The noodles were hard to make, but it was a very good experience. I was able to find fresh rosemary and that made all the difference.

      @jen, I am really impressed, spaetzel is hard! Fresh herbs are the best!

    That meal and that view are just what I’m craving now…especially since Normandy is covered in a couple inches of snow! It’s been mighty cold the last week so I made Cassoulet one day, corn chowder another day, a spinach and mushroom pasta one day for lunch, baked gnocchi last night and tonight….leftovers!

      @Loulou, I am coming to your house for dinner! You are making some favorites of mine. We don’t have snow, but the whole West coast has been freezing this year, coldest I can remember in a long time!

    YES!! I was just there (and had the fish tacos no less) with my pals Christy and Scott from Ordinary Traveler. It was gorgeous! I love La Jolla.

      @Abby, the tacos are pretty tasty, feels healthy eating them with all those raw veggies – the view is a million dollars!

    I’m surprised I’ve never heard of farro. I thought I knew all of the grains.

      @Jennie, it is becoming more common here. There is even an Italian restaurant franchise, Pasta Pomodoro, that serves on their menu full-time.

    I love the recipe for Rhubarb, rose and pistachio porridge, just right for a cold day.

    Oh, delicious. I’m going to San Diego for a Cosplay this summer. I just might try this place out if it’s not too close to the conference.
