Sea Rocket

Tonight was a Socrates Cafe (philosophy club) night for Todd.  That meant I got to go hang out with Sally and eat some good food.  Sally lives in North Park, and Socrates Cafe meets not far from there.  And North Park is full of good restaurants.

Sally & I looked in her coupon book and decided to try out the Sea Rocket Bistro.  We figured we couldn't lose too badly with a buy one entree get one free coupon.  When we arrived, we realized that the restaurant is participating this week in San Diego Restaurant Week, so they also have a $20/person three course prix fix menu.  We looked at it but the entrees didn't seem as appetizing to us, so we skipped the prix fix menu and ordered on our own.

Sally got the Beet & Goat Cheese Tart.

I have to admit that dish was a little strange. It was like a quiche filled with beets.

I had an open-faced mushroom sandwich.

I thought it was pretty good. I have to give Sea Rocket Bistro props for serving original food. I've never had anything like it elsewhere before. I had a lot of fun chatting and catching up with the Salster.  Plus I always think it's extra fun when I get to go somewhere on a weeknight.  :)

I did this layout with mostly Little Dreamers Designs stuff.

  1. What a nice night out! The food looks delicious, even the Beet and Goat cheese tart. I have come to really like fresh beets, and love them with goat cheese, so this pie sounds yummy to me.
    Your mushroom sandwich also looks like a hit!

  2. It WAS too many beets - thank goodness you shared your yummy dish. The picture cracks me up - I look like I have a GIANT head and wee-lil shoulders... :) Never mind the goofy expression...I'll blame it on too many beets!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from you!
