Un Mundo Mexican Grill La Jolla’s newest take on fresh SoCal Mexican cuisine.  They just recently opened their doors a couple months ago in August, but are quickly building traction.

So despite taking 6 years of Spanish throughout Jr. High, High School, and then University, I still couldn’t remember what “Un Mundo” meant.  Pathetic I know!  Luckily Darren knew it meant “One World” and he walked in with his head held high.

Opera Cafe & Patisserie in San Diego (Sorrento Valley)

Opera Cafe & Patisserie in San Diego (Sorrento Valley)

A strange name perhaps, but Opera Cafe delivers a stellar performance!

Jorgina had been wanting to try this cafe for some time now.  She had heard about it from a friend a few months ago.  So, we finally made the trek up a couple Saturdays ago.  We are both certainly glad we did!
