I get a lot of questions about what are some of my favorite spots to eat, grab a drink, or grab a coffee in North County. Well here’s a good starter list along with links to some of my reviews (T-Money M) on Yelp:
Ironsmith Coffee Roasters: Tiny place, tough parking, but legit espresso drinks…their cortado is off the chain
Encinitas Ale House: Another place that isn’t easy to see, but killer burgers and fantastic beer on tap plus a nice inviting bar to curl up next to
The Land & Water Company: Pork Belly, Sushi, amazing drinks…somehow it all works. Don’t sit at a table, though, gotta sit at the bar and ask for whatever they’re firing up
ARA Lebanese Grill: Another tiny place that is really unassuming, but amazing meats and veggies…the kids even love this place!
Wrench & Rodent: 2 guys that look like me behind the sushi bar, punk rock music playing overhead, and skateboards on the wall. All that, and some of the best sushi I’ve ever had…a definite “Sit at the Bar” place.
