GuilTea Cravings is a new tea, coffee and dessert cafe that recently opened.

Upon entering, we were greeted to a lovely display of macarons. They also offer several flavors of macaron ice cream sandwiches as well. The tea and coffee menu was quite impressive. Despite the fact that there now have been several tea cafes that have recently opened in the area, there were still quite a few unique drink options I haven’t seen or tried before.

Fruity Pebbles and Cinnamon Toast Crunch Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches

March seemed to just fly by!  I had a lot of fun sharing my favorite bites from February and hopefully I can continue to keep this up. We tried not to eat out as much last month because we have some fun eating excursions planned for April, but we still made time for a few delicious bites.

Tahitian Octopus from Duke’s La Jolla

I really like octopus so I always try to order it when it’s on the restaurant menu. Having now tried so many versions though, there are very few I find memorable. But I really enjoyed this tender version paired with light and refreshing elements. And of course, there was the spectacular view.

Blueberry Lemon Cruller from Nomad Donuts

I’ve been pretty disappointed with the cruller donuts offered at most donut shops in San Diego. Last year, Nomad Donuts added crullers to their menu and I always get one when I visit the store. They are constantly rotating flavors, but they have all been pretty good. The crullers are light, airy and not overly sweet.

Matcha green tea flavored gelatin is topped with sweetened condensed milk for a light and refreshing dessert.

I really love these jello-like desserts. They are easy to make, can be made ahead of time and make a pretty presentation.
