California Cuisine

California is known for the variety of delicious foods. You can't really go wrong with whatever you find or are recommended to try!

In-N-Out Burger is one of the most well-known fast food chains in the American Southwest and Pacific Coast. The menu consists of three burger varieties: hamburger, cheeseburger, and my favorite, the "Double-Double". On the side includes French fries, pop (I know it's called soda, but I'm from Ohio), or milkshakes. They also have an online "secret menu" in which you can order additional standard toppings.  

At the original Farmer's Market in Los Angeles, there are wide options of types of food that are original and hard to find anywhere else, such as candy caramel apples, pizza with over easy egg toppings, fruit juices, and so much more. 

When my mom and I met our good friends in Mission Viejo, they took us to Creamistry. It's a creamery in which they use only nitrogen and cream to make ice cream, and you can watch the process before they give you your ice cream. It may have been the first time in my life I was actually super fascinated with science! 

In Laguna Beach, we ate at a very good rooftop restaurant, literally named "The Rooftop", that served both breakfast and lunch. The best part was enjoying a cup of coffee with a great view of the Pacific Ocean! 

Another breakfast place that was worth going to twice was the Market Cafe at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort. Waffles, oatmeal, and fresh fruit are a great way to start an exciting day in San Diego! 

It's acceptable to eat ice cream for dinner while on vacation, or perhaps whenever. On the second day while taking a ride on the city trolley, we ate a late lunch at Cafe Coyote in Old Town (it was Taco Tuesday), and we weren't super hungry for another big meal by the time we got back to Coronado. Instead, we went to a popular creamery called Moo Time and got ourselves some ice cream for dinner, and boy was it worth it! I got a birthday cake with cookie dough and sprinkles in a waffle cone and my mom got a mint chocolate chip in a sugar cone. There was a blue flavor called "Silly Vanilla" which I regret not trying, so I'll remember to get that next time!

Finally, we ate very delicious hot dogs in Balboa Park on our last day, fresh and thick off the cart!

Boy, not being in California and writing this blog is making me miss my Double-Double and nitrogen ice cream even more ...
