OVER-THE-TOP Incredible!!! We try to do a Foodie Tour in every city we visit, when we first get there, so we know where to eat during our stay. This tour, by far, had TOO MANY awesome choices!!! There wasn't a place we wouldn't go to...if we had more time!
Make sure you COME HUNGRY because even though the portions are small, there are a LOT of them, and you will leave FULL! We were greatful that there was a short walk between restaurants to give our stomachs a rest!
Our first stop was to Caldo Pomadoro for some delicious cheesy Garlic Bread with marinara and cheesy Artichokes! Note the "cheesy..." they were BOTH incredible!!!
The next stop was Humble Olive Oils for tastings of gourmet olive oils and vinegars. This has to be the BEST place for getting a great product. They also carry pastas and sauces. We didn't leave there without buying their Peach and Apricot Balsamic Oils, the White Truffle Oil, & the Avocado Blossom Honey! So Yum!!!
The next stop was to Vigilucci's Gourmet Market. An authentic Italian Market in the heart of Carlsbad! We enjoyed a selection of cheeses, meats, olives & Italian cookies. You can buy complete meals-to-go OR the ingredients to make it at home!
We were then on to Witch Creek Winery for some sampling of some award winning California wines.
Next, we had a little history lesson about Carlsbad's name and how the city was known for having the Best WATER!
Sub Zero Ice Cream was an amazing stop!!! They blast the ice cream with -321 degrees of liquid nitrogen to freeze it instantly and to-order. We're coming back here!!!
Gregorio's was our next stop where we had some delicious Eggplant Sliders! Loved them!
Next Stop was Señor Grubby's for some incredible pork tacos! They have a great menu that has good choices for ever eater!
Our last stop was to the Carlsbad Chocolate Bar to sample some Sea Salt Dark Chocolates! Mmmm... A perfect way to finish our foodie adventure!
Cheri, our host, did an incredible job of selecting restaurants and sharing her passion for both food and the city of Carlsbad. The tour would not be the same without her!
