LUNCH: The outside patio of C Level. Two words: Lobster Nirvana. The Lobster BLT served with the oh so creamy and “definitely not on my diet” Lobster Bisque is the perfect pairing that is only slightly out shadowed by the amazing bay front view looking back to the city. It’s the perfect place to bring mom or guests from outta town.
DINNER: Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot in Clairemont Mesa. Similar to traditional Japanese “Shabu Shabu”, this SPICY SOUP is made up of over 32 Chinese medical restorative herbs and reportedly 3 different bone marrows (which animals, I cannot say). Diners then choose from an array of meats and veggies (baby bok choy and oyster mushrooms are my fave) and throw them all in the pot to cook right at your table. It’s a great place to go with a large group and the huge caldron of bubbling, boiling broth also adds an element of danger that certainly adds even more spice to the evening!
BAR: If I wanna get my ASS KICKED, I head over to Starlite for their famous (and potentially brain damaging) Mules. Otherwise, Sunday’s Beer Bust @ The Hole (OK, get your mind outta da gutter) in Point Loma gets a little crazy. Packed elbow to elbow at this infamous dive, you’ll find big manly “BEARS” (and an occasional, daring “real” lady) all downing copious amounts of $6.00 pitchers of beer while rocking out to a DJ spinning everything from classic Bowie to Boston and Black Sabbath to Blondie. Finish off the evening on the patio with one of their made to order greasy double, double decker “macho” avocado burgers and you’re in HOG heaven!
