So all of this nostalgia means that our visits to San Diego tend to be a little different than our typical Gastronomic Globe Trotting. Instead of trying to track down the latest and greatest restaurant or looking for an authentic "taste of place" we tend to just stick to our old haunts (mostly in/near Pacific Beach) and hang out with friends. That being said, a lot of our old haunts are the perfect taste of San Diego to us (and pretty darn cheap since we were so poor!) so I think you'll enjoy some of our favorites when you're in town as well:
|Monday:||Memorial Day BBQ with Friends|
|Wednesday:||Breakfast for Dinner|
|Friday:||In San Diego|
|Saturday:||In San Diego|

So first things first...I will say neither came even close to my favorite lobster roll from Sesuit Harbor Cafe in Dennis, MA shown above. Let's be honest though, I'm not expecting to find a CA-made lobster roll that can rival an authentic New England one...but I sure will be happy trying! Now onto the first two contenders...Sam's ChowderMobile and Lobsta Truck.

As you all know, lately I've been making strides in rebuilding my social life, making new friends, reconnecting with old friends and generally just reminding myself how to live the good life now that I'm on my own. When you live in a city as food-obsessed as San Francisco, an active social life often means a gastronomic tour of duty...no complaints from SavoryGirl on that! So I thought I'd share my iPhoto journey of my past 10 days eating out...enjoy! Bar Jules in Hayes Valley. I bus by this adorable cafe restaurant twice a day on my way to and from work...and while it has always caught my eye this was my first visit, which I was very excited about. Come to find out, that excitement was well warranted! I loved everything about this place...the food, the atmosphere, the service, the crowd...everything. There are a lot of amazing restaurants in my fair city, but to be honest, there aren't many that I immediately put on the "I'll definitely be back" list. Even before I had a taste of the food I had a feeling Bar Jules would be making the list, but as soon as I had my first few bites it was firmly planted there.First up!
|Sunday:||Leftovers: Spicy Beans & Greens Stew|
|Monday:||Bruins Game then Sushi with Katherine|
|Tuesday:||Leftovers: Spicy Beans & Greens Stew|
|Wednesday:||Dinner with Allison|
|Thursday:||Healthy Turkey Tacos|
|Friday:||PAWS (Pets Are Wonderful Support) Fundraiser Event & drinks for a Rose's birthday|
First I'll be relying on frozen leftovers of a delicious, healthy Spicy Beans & Wilted Greens stew I made about a month ago. Then later I"ll pull some frozen ground turkey out of the freezer and make healthy tacos or taco salad depending on my mood. You know me - I always have the fixings for tacos on hand!
I'm excited that all of my efforts to figure out who I am and what I like to do in my free time now that I'm solo is paying off! Of course I'll have to keep an eye on the waistline and budget if so much of my social life continues to revolve around food/drinks...but I do live in one of the greatest food cities in the world after all! That being said, if you need a bit more variety and inspiration for the week's meals please visit my menu archives and recipes to find others to round out your week. Have a great week...and of course, Go Bruins Go!!
