Weekend Getaway: San Diego

Posted in vacay by krisyee on October 14, 2010

This past weekend I headed down to San Diego for some relaxation and chill time. The night we got in we just bar hopped in the Gaslamp district. The next morning I wanted to bring the boyfriend to Hash House A  Go Go because it’s just SO delicious. But we got there late and the line was long so we decided to try the sister restaurant down the street called The Tractor Room. While waiting for our table the boyfriend noticed a guy standing outside with us and decided to ask him what’s good to order. Little did we know it was one of the owners of Hash House and The Tractor Room. We decided to try some of the entrees he suggested, and all I can say is SOOO DELICIOUS.

I decided to try the kiwi watermelon lemonade. It was pretty refreshing.

I had the nutmeg french toast which may sound like your regular french toast, but it was pretty damn good and I couldn’t even finish the whole thing.

The boyfriend tried the sage fried chicken benedict. This was SO good that we almost went back the next day to eat the same thing! Biscuits, spinach, bacon, tomatoes, fried chicken, mozzarella, scramble eggs, and chipotle cream…UGH SO YUUUUUUMMY!!!!!

To show you how big the portions are…

The boyfriend ate the whole thing…including the rest of my portion of it.

*Thanks to Andy for recommending some delicious entrees ,buying my drink, and giving us ideas of places to visit! I hope you and Johnny open a Hash House or Tractor room in SF!

Check out more of my trip…

The rest of the day we headed to Coronado Island to enjoy the sun.

So we didn’t know much about this place, but Coronado Island has this beautiful hotel called Hotel del Coronado. At first I was scared to go in, but the boyfriend made me and so we got to learn some history about the place and walk around a little bit. The Victorian hotel opened back in 1888 and hosted lavish parties for presidents, kings, and celebrities. I know I know, I’m probably square for writing about this, but what can I say, it was a beautiful landmark. If you’re ever in that area I would definitely check it out…that’s if you like old stuff like that. Haha

That night we hit up Stingaree. We went early for dinner and stayed for the club portion of it. I’d say it was more of mini Vegas club in San Diego. The rooftop was pretty cool though with their big Buddha and a fire pit.

The next day we ate breakfast on the beach in Del Mar and ended up in Belmont Park by Mission Beach. We hit up a bar and drank Mimosa’s all afternoon while watching the Giants game.

And carne asada fries…this was my first time eating them, so I’m not exactly sure if this is how it’s supposed to look…lol.

Then of course, cars, palm trees, and the sunset.

Overall a good trip…thanks to Mike for hanging out with us and showing us around!

Oh and I forgot to show you our rental car…

I will never rent one of these things again! Unless I’M the one driving! Lol…
