Faye [ my sister ], Michael and I decided to take a stroll through Del Mar the other day for a little lazy Saturday. We stopped by the beach & then realized we were all hungry & thirsty [ wine, anyone? ]. We walked a few blocks up & decided on the restaurant Pacifica Del Mar, which provides a relaxing ambiance with a killer view.
Since I frequently eat out, I am extra careful when ordering off the menu. I try and start with protein and veggies to fill up on. At Pacifica, I opted for oysters [ my FAVORITE food — so many benefits, I could literally pen a book: high in B12, protein & zinc and NO sugar ] with Tabasco & a side salad as an appetizer. I choose raw ahi tuna [ it is really yellowfin tuna, but we all say ahi 😉 ] for an entree which was accompanied by a glass of Pinot Grigio. Faye tried a fresh, muddled peach cocktail with vodka, soda water and a splash of peach juice — it was fab. We split a dessert of homemade mango sorbet. Needless to say, it was a beautiful day. Just the perfect lazy Saturday for the three of us.
