EC Culture Blog: La Jolla Culinary Experience

Food is huge. Going out to eat is a great way to practice your English speaking in San Diego and if you are looking for first-class food La Jolla is the perfect place to start. ESL San Diego doesn’t get any better than speaking English while enjoying some excellent tacos on the beach. Pick a number between 1 and 100. Somewhere within the vast range of numerical values is the digit that represent the number of restaurants that are found in the city of La Jolla. If you guessed somewhere in the 90s, you are correct; the answer is 94. San Diego, itself, is known for its culinary prowess, but some of the more unique and delicious restaurants are said to be nestled right here in La Jolla. If you are in the mood for sugary treats whipped up and pulled from the creative mind of a somewhat popular chef, head down to Sugar and Scribe Bakery La Jolla. Once you walk into the building, you’ll be overwhelmed with your selection of homemade goods. Or perhaps, you’re taste buds are screaming for some “south of the border” flavors. In that case, you can head right on down to the Taco Stand. Here you’ll discover an array of tacos and burritos sure to satisfy your cravings. Let’s not forget that La Jolla is exquisite and the picture of elegance. Several fine dining restaurants offer delectable fare for those willing to spare the change. Post dinner, you can grab some gelato at a local gelateria and head down to the beach for evening stroll. All in all, La Jolla is the city to venture to if you, indeed, crave the above average culinary adventure.
