Their menu is simple, fresh, and to the point.  Darren and I decided to share a couple different things so we could sample a few different things.

This is their Katana roll (torched tuna, halibut, krab, avocado, and spicy mayo).  We were excited to learn that they use fresh local fish sourced from Catalina Offshore.…

Jonty Jacobs – La Jolla

Jonty Jacobs – La Jolla

Are you a beef jerky lover? I am. Camran, one of the owners of Jonty Jacobs in La Jolla insists you’ve never had beef jerky like this before. Some things in life you just sort of accept without giving a passing thought. For me, beef jerky is one of those things. Sodium nitrates, sure, why not? Preservatives? Okay! Artificial flavors? Sign me up! But then again, I had no idea there was a tastier, healthier version out there until now. Jonty Jacobs specializes in a popular South African snack called biltong.…

My favorite chicken sandwich is a non-traditional one called the Spicy Chicken Melt from Chez Nous in the Scripps Ranch area.

This little sandwich shop is a hidden gem, unassuming and tucked away in a strip mall off the Carroll Canyon Road exit.…

Dinner en Green California Avocado Event with Chef Trey Foshee

There aren’t many greater pleasures than dining outside when the weather is just right, especially here in San Diego. It was a perfect day and I was excited to see how they would fancify an avocado grove. On this evening we were invited to an avocado inspired event prepared by Chef Trey Foshee of George’s at the Cove and Galaxy Tacos. My companion on this evening was my friend J, who is 99% vegetarian. He occasionally eats chicken the other 1% of the time. 

After we checked in there were a couple of bartenders who looked lonely and us being the nice guys we are, joined their conversation.…
