Last year I was frolicking in this hip and historic district in Downtown San Diego during my days-off.
I’ve always been curious of Little Italy. I ride the trolley most of the time. The green line has a stop at the County Center/Little Italy. From where I came from and places I’ve been, Chinatown is almost everywhere. I only heard of Little Italy when I came in San Diego. I made time to go, when Artwalk SD happened. Since then, I drop by whenever I have the chance. Here are some of the things that I photographed that I would love to share to you. ( Let’s decode this into something like: “I’m too lazy to post in instagram and collated it into one long blog post. LOL!“).
Artwalk SD 2015
The crowd and the booths at the fair.
Around 12 noon the streets are full.
What amazes was the amount of people present but, it doesn’t look (and even feel) overcrowded.
After all the walking, I was starving. I went to the least crowded pizzeria.
I’ve seen this place in social media before attending the Artwalk SD. But at that time of Artwalk, they were full. I decided to comeback for them the next time around.
I never heard of Porcini mushrooms until before this pizza.
By far, the best Tiramisu I ever tasted!
I found out about this place because I follow @kirbiecravings on instagram. I missed the chance to visit the Jean-Philippe Patisserie in Las Vegas. At least I have something here in SD that I can try, while waiting for the next Vegas trip.
This is a very fresh concept on dessert dining. This is the first time I experienced something unique as this.
Select your choice of ice cream theme. You can manually select all the ingredients if you want to. I just chose Chef Jean-Philippe’s Favorites. You can check out more of it here.
Afterwards, you pay with your card or cash. They call out your name to claim your order.
I like the concept. It fascinates me of the things you can do with ice cream. I find it expensive to be honest. But still, the food lover in me says it’s not bad to indulge occasionally. I’ll be trying the other desserts the next time around.
Art supplies heaven!
The perfect combination of shopping and food trip all in one place.
It’s just opposite of Little Italy. All you need is to cross the road from the trolley station. This building is also connected to the waterfront park, that I need to visit soon. According to my husband, this is the one place that you need to remember when living in San Diego. We go here to pay for our taxes.
Till next time, Little Italy! 🙂
