weekend getaway

this past weekend, i went down to sd to help with the leaders retreat.
i, along with a couple others, watched the children while the leaders had their meetings.
on saturday, we had a couple hours of free time.
several of us took a little trip to Heavensent Desserts.

here is the strawberry cake. i actually forgot what it was called...but this one was amazing.
very light in texture and not too sweet.

nice decorative design on their teas

lavender rose cake. i think the first time i got it was a lot better....this round was a little more sweeter than i remember

for my reference so that i know what its supposed to look like on the inside

the tiramisu was good.

had a couple other desserts but i dont know where those pictures went....(i might've not taken them...)

now after having sweet overload, we decided that we needed something salty.
with the help from our fancy gadgets and yelp, we found that we were very close to our next destination.
Mariscos German Taco Truck.
4 1/2 stars on yelp.
so we had to try it
and one dollar sign (cheap)

at this point we were really really full.
we had breakfast, then lunch only a couple hours after, and right after went to heavensent where we stuffed ourselves.
but after reading the reviews on yelp, we decided to get everything everyone suggested

so this truck is parked in a parking lot of a liquor store.
opened only until 7pm, this is a place everyone should try.
the entire menu is in spanish decide what you want to do

let me start off with the fish taco.
this was seriously delicious.
all eight of was amazed at how fresh and wonderful it tasted

marlyn taco. fish flavor. texture of meat. wonderful vegies. perfect when you squeeze some lime juice on it.

garlic shrimp tacos. these were bomb. the shrimps were big and juicy.
nice combo of fresh cabbage and salsa and shrimp ...amazing.

i wish i remembered what this one was called. sorry.
look at how much they fill your tortilla
now the tortilla shell is the size of any corn tortilla
grilled vegis and plump shrimp.
a little on the salty side. it was alright

we then went back to our hotel to be greeted with some steak and korean bbq :)
