Creamistry is a liquid nitrogen ice cream chain that recently opened its first store in San Diego last Thursday.

We’ve seen liquid nitrogen ice cream stores pop up in Los Angeles and Orange County and have been pretty impressed. I remember a few years ago there was a small store in San Diego that offered liquid nitrogen ice cream, but the results weren’t very good and it was more gimmicky than anything. Things have changed a lot since then, and the liquid nitrogen ice cream being served now is incredibly creamy and rich. And since they are all made-to-order, it allows for a lot of customization. So I was definitely excited by Creamistry’s opening.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. It’s been a really busy month for us, so I’m only getting around to sharing my favorite bites from June now. Here they are:

Nutella Bombolone at Monello (San Diego, California)

This Italian-style donut filled with Nutella was fresh, warm, fluffy and everything a good donut should be. We really enjoyed our relaxing brunch at Monello and this donut was definitely a highlight. Full post here.

Citrus Cured Salmon at Pardon My French (San Diego, California)

We recently had a tasting menu during a private event held at Pardon My French. During the dinner, we ate many delicious courses, but the one that stood out most for me was the citrus cured salmon. The bright citrus notes gave this salmon such a light and refreshing feel. I also loved the vibrant red edges of the salmon, produced naturally with the help of a little beet juice.

These indulgent sandwiches are stuffed with pasta, marinara sauce and gooey melted mozzarella. The mozzarella cheese helps the pasta stay in place, making this one delicious sandwich.

Earlier this week, I had my annual physical. I was trying to be good the few days leading up to the physical and then when it was over, I immediately made these sandwiches which had been consuming my mind!
