Regents Pizzeria, which serves New York-style and Chicago-style pizza, recently moved into a new space. They are still in the same plaza, but are now right across the parking lot with a bigger space, more pizza ovens and an expanded menu that includes 30 craft beers on tap.

While it’s been quite a few years since I blogged about Regents, we come here for slices or whole pies of their New York-style pizza quite frequently. It’s one of the few restaurants in the La Jolla/UTC area that I enjoy eating at and one of three in San Diego that I think makes good New York-style pizza. I had been wanting to check out their new space, and before I got a chance to, I was invited in for a visit.

In addition to the 30 beers on tap, they also serve cask conditioned beer.

We started our lunch with a beer sampler. I love that the small pours are served on a pizza peel.

Bacon Plate

These mini baked coffee flavored donut muffins are topped with a Baileys Irish Cream glaze, making a delicious breakfast treat, snack, or dessert.

I can’t believe it’s March! Where did the time go? March marks the start of the busy season for me. I don’t know why it is, but March and April are always ridiculously busy months filled with birthdays, parties, holidays, etc.

Tofu Ka

Tofu Ka opened last year, replacing Fuze.

It’s been particularly cold in San Diego lately, and steaming tofu stew seemed like a good answer.

After we placed our orders, out came some complimentary banchan dishes and a basket of raw eggs for the tofu stew. There was also a bottle of fruit infused water.

Crispy Tofu

Right now they are running a deal where you can get a free order of crispy tofu appetizer if you check in on yelp. The silken tofu had a delicate crispy batter. I did feel the flavor was a little bland and needed a lot of soy sauce, but otherwise, it was a decent way to start the meal.
