Galaxy Taco

Galaxy Taco is a casual taco eatery by the owners of George’s on the Cove that recently opened in La Jolla, just blocks from La Jolla Shoes Beach. Partner Chef Trey Foshee also serves as executive chef.

After many positive reviews, it’s been high on my to-do list and we actually visited during their lunch restaurant week, which was just $15 a person and gave us a good sampling of the menu.

Fish ceviche tostada

Fresh chunks of fish, lightly seasoned and served on a toasted crispy blue corn tortilla. Galaxy grinds its own masa for making the tortillas. This was a pleasant way to start our meal.

Birria Steamed Clams

This pumpkin macaroni and cheese is ultra creamy with subtle hint of pumpkin. It’s warm, comforting, and ready in less than 30 minutes.

The weather has finally cooled down in San Diego and rather abruptly too. On Saturday I was wearing a summery dress and today I was wearing pants and a light jacket. Rainy weather always makes me want to just stay indoors with a hot bowl of soup or pasta. Which is why I was really craving this pumpkin macaroni and cheese.

Nishiki Ramen

Nishiki Ramen (originally from Japan) recently opened in San Diego. With promises of fresh made noodles, I’ve been eagerly anticipating its opening for months, constantly checking the storefront and their Facebook page for updates.

The grand opening was Sunday, though we ended up going on Saturday instead while they were still in the soft opening stage because we wanted to avoid the opening day crowd.
