since i was in san deigo, i didn't want to miss the opportunity to dine at whisknladle again. sarah and i had such a wonderful experience there i wanted to take my sister and some other san diego friends. this time for dinner. we were not disappointed. to start us off we got the cutting board (cured meats, cheese, spreads, and pickles), flat bread, bone marrow, and scallops [i know some starters right, but we wanted to try so many things!] the favorite among the table was the flat bread and scallops but everything was so good. the flat bread was super super thin, like a thin tortilla chip topped with heirloom tomatoes, some sort of corn puree, and well it was pretty freaking amazing.
for dinner we ordered the summer salad, squid ink linguine, and the hanger steak. every dish was well prepared, fresh and best of all delicious. now, lets take moment to admire this hanger steak. hello happiness!
for dessert [not pictured] we ordered the stone fruit pie with sweet corn ice cream and the jojo cookie plate. our tummies left happy to say the least.
there are many things i love about whisknladle, besides the food, the ambiance is great. i love every bit of sunshine i can get, so their outdoor patio seating is wonderful. it's fine dining without the fluff. although i've only dine there a few times their staff never disappoints, they are knowledgeable, friendly and i even think they all share a passion for food. if your ever in the san diego area - be sure to check them out! - next up for me is their sister restaurant prep kitchen!
