The Steakhouse at Azul La Jolla
1250 Prospect St
La Jolla, CA 92037
Lately I have been trying to find some other good brunch places in San Diego. While going through the San Diego Sunday Brunch Master's blog I came across Azul, which sounded promising. The Sunday brunch options looked yummy, and it has a beautiful view of the cove, and brunch comes with a complimentary champagne, bloody mary, mimosa or screwdriver. Brunch also comes with complimentary pastries and fruit. The full brunch menu can be found on their website.
When we arrived, we were surprised about how empty it was. There were only two other tables filled out of the whole big dining room. However, the view of the cove is gorgeous. Here's the view from our table:
After getting our drinks, we were served with our complimentary pastries and fruit:
The pastries were a bit disappointing. The pictures of the complimentary pastries and fruit on the brunchmaster's website had looked much better.
There were so many entrees I wanted to try, but I ended up going with the wagyu burger. It is topped with blue cheese and served with shoe string fries.
The burger was big and too tall to eat together. I couldn't fit an entire bite into my mouth. The meat was cooked perfectly and was very juicy. I didn't care much for the bread that went with it. The blue cheese tasted good with the meat. The shoe string fries were just okay. They were crunchy, but not that tasty.
Boyfriend got the steak and eggs.
The steak tasted just alright. It was about the same level as when I make my own steak. We were expecting something more since Azul is a steakhouse. The potatoes weren't crispy either.
All in all, just an okay experience. A beautiful view, plenty of room for brunch. But it was almost too quiet. I missed the louder ambiance of Jake's Del Mar.
