Everything looks delicious, but I keep going back to that Octopus...

Which one? Had octopus twice yesterday once for lunch and again for one of the dinner dishes. They were both great. I love grilled octopus

My challenge with places like this so close by, would be "why am I cooking??" I'd never be able to replicate these meals and I consider myself a pretty damn good home chef! 

Same for brewing if I lived in SD - too many outstanding breweries in the area - so why would I even try myself - even for the "fun of it?"

@tony b that’s precisely why I don’t brew. But this place is 90 minutes from my home. We come at least once a year and it’s like the title of my thread it really inspires me to cook at home. Still got two more nights to go and tomorrow is my birthday and the two meals I’m most excited about. But everything here is cooked outdoor over wood fired grills and the food and price points are much better than I find in San Diego.

this was yesterday’s post lunch daytime activity

@Troble, I think you and I have the same idea of how to spend a birthday. Mine is Sunday and I am super jealous of your current trip...  Best wishes for a happy birthday (but I think you already have it covered)!

Great photos Troble. Some look like a movie set.
When will you be investing in a Parilla style grill?

I think I need to see more cooks from you to inspire me! In all seriousness we are redoing the kitchen next month, expanding the house in two years, probably add the Santa Maria grill with the house expansion in two years. Santa Maria grill is a luxury, my KK works just fine, don’t really need a Santa Maria grill but I’d like to own one some day

For the grand finale my favorite restaurant Animalon. Did not disappoint. The pie looking thing with a cherry crust was the best piece of foie gras I’ve ever eaten in my life. Amazing food, amazing ambience, impeccable service. All inside a 150 year old Oak Tree. I love this place
