New Dessert Cafe in San Diego - Eclipse Chocolat

ditto to nessy, extraordinary desserts way too reliant on massive amounts of sugar. eclipse has complex flavors that are much more creative and taste better too. great place!!!

Eclipse Chocolate - San Diego

Wonderful! new artisan chocolate shop in SD, on El Cajon of all places.

Had a smores tasting with olive oil chocolate and two kinds of seas salt, was quite amazing really.

A much needed addition to the area as we have little in the way of quality desserts. Heaven Sent uses cheap shortening and i think Extraordinary Desserts is much to dependent on massive amounts of sugar as opposed to spices and contrasting flavors.

Welcome to the hood!!!

Burger Lounge in Kensington (SD)

Have been there a few times and the burgers have been mostly very good, some wimpier than others.

I love love love their version of a hostess cupcake.

Urban Solace in San Diego

Hello. Been having lunch (5 so far) and dinner (1 so far) at new joint near my apartment.

So far everything has been amazing. Brandt Farms burger (cheap too!) and braised beef joe are awesome.

Desert not crazy about but food is amazing for the prices. Lobster pot pie to die for.

Check this place out.

The Linkery -- San Diego

I had best steak of my life at The Linkery in San Diego. Was second time there and I loved it.

I had: New Mexican chile grilled hanging tenderloin steak (Brandt Farms) under chimichurri sauce, with roasted fingerling potato salad and grilled baby bok choy

Was pricey for me at 19 bucks but would have easily been 30 at the other steak joints in SD.

This place has cured my depression over the closing of Region.
