One of my favorite things to do is go on food adventures. My uncle loves to take me and my brother to the places he has found. This time our food theme was Mexican, but we wanted seafood and my uncle said he knew just the place. So we headed out to San Diego to visit the Tj Oyster Bar.
My uncle ordered a half plate of oysters which I did not partake in but my brother loves. There are very few things I don’t like and slimy oysters are one of them.
Instead, I ate tacos.
I ordered an octopus taco and a smoked tuna with cheese. Surprisingly adding the cheese made the tuna even better, though I shouldn’t be surprised because I am a cheese connoisseur and will add extra cheese to everything I can.
The octopus was delicious too and it is one of my favorite types of seafood so there was really nothing that could go wrong with this meal for me.
After lunch, we headed out to get some dessert and sticking with our theme walked down the street to Holy Paleta. Now this place is cool. They have water based and milk based paletas that you can add toppings too. From anything from yogurt and fruit to cereal and chocolate.
I ended up getting an Horchata paleta dipped in white chocolate topped with cinnamon toast crunch cereal. It was amazing. The white chocolate went incredibly well with the horchata and the crunch from the cereal brought it all together. Now I really want to go back and try some of their other flavors.
I have to say our food adventure day was a success and be sure to check out my uncles food instagram @follow.my.fork to get some restaurant recommendations.
