Weekend Recap: 24 Hours in San Diego.

Helloooooo party people! Did everyone have a good weekend? I hope so!!

My dad came into town Saturday morning for conference in San Diego, so I picked him up at LAX before we grabbed lunch and headed south! I wanted to show him the neighborhood I work in and then took him to Hot’s KitchenHot’s Kitchen in Hermosa for some grub. Their tacos are THE best. If you’re ever in the area, go go go.

Our drive to SD took a bit longer than we had expected (ohhhh LA traffic), so we didn’t make it to the zoo like we wanted to, but that was okay! We checked into the hotel (the Grand Hyatt) and rested for a few before we walked over to dinner.

My dad had read an article about Ironside Fish & Oyster, so we made a reservation there a few weeks ago. Let me just tell you, this place is a MUST. Like literally do not skip this one if you’re in San Diego, I can’t say enough wonderful things.

We started 2 delicious drinks, green lip mussels (YUM) and their famous octopus & chorizo appetizer. For dinner, we both had two delicious fish filets, mine was Escolar and dad’s was Thresher, with lemon butter and a side of greens.

We also ordered the charred broccolini and romanesco with mint pistachio pesto on the side. So freakin’ delicious. We were obviously super stuffed after dinner, but couldn’t pass up their new panna cotta dessert with angel food cake, rhubarb, and strawberry ice cream. UNREAL. Then, Sunday morning we woke up early and ventured out to Coronado Del Mar.

I don’t know about you, but I had literally never heard of this place and apparently Walt Disney modeled off one of the famous hotels at Disneyland after the Hotel del Coronado. So, obviously, we had to go see it and it turned out they were doing a Sunday brunch buffet (aka the DREAM).

After stuffing our faces with insanely good omelettes, fruit, pastries, fresh juice and coffee, we walked for about 3 miles on the beach. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect – sun and a slight breeze.

Apparently the beach by the hotel is also ranked #7 in the country or something and for good reason! I wish I had brought a swimsuit and had more time, but I’m hoping to go back very soon!

I had to head back to LA in the early afternoon since the traffic was already building, but spending 24 hours with my dad was the best. My parents don’t come out west very often, so when they do it feels extra special 🙂

Hope your Monday is short and your coffee is strong. Be back soon!
