SD Food Adventures Part 1

About two weeks ago I took a weekend trip down to San Diego. This post is overdue but it’s been a busy two weeks and fortunately I wanted to blog about a seafood/French restaurant we went to while we were there. The restaurant isn’t going anywhere so timing is still fine.

So here’s a lineup of what we had at the Marine Room in La Jolla…

The Ocean Trilogy Tasting: Vanilla Lobster, Plum Tuna Tartare, Yellowtail Sashimi Spanish Trout Caviar, Sesame Cone, Lemon Myrtle

Pretty presentation but the sushi tasted weird. I’m not used to creamy sauces on raw fish.

Cashew Dukkah Crusted Blue Crab Cake: Buckwheat Yam Noodles, Wasabi Sprouts, Agrumes  Cucumber Tokai Ju

Very good, although I wish it came with two.

Midwestern Center Cut Filet Mignon: Whipped Kennebec Potato, Tilston Point Blue, Mountain Berry Chutney  Mustard Seed Garnacha Sauce

Also delicious, but the blue cheese on the side was a little strong.

Macadamia Pesto Crusted Tasmanian Steelhead Salmon: Eggplant Wheat Berry Timbale, Tomato Confit, La Quercia Prosciutto Saffron Angelica Infusio

Maybe the best salmon I’ve ever had?

And as if the food wasn’t good enough, the view was fantastic. The restaurant sits directly on the beach with floor to ceiling windows.
