There is something amazing about Al Fresco ocean front dining. I enjoyed a great lunch at one of my favorite spots in Palos Verdes and had a healthy and indulgent lunch. The lunch was healthy until we added french fries and truffle mac n cheese, but it was the dessert that was unbelievably indulgent and worth every calorie. The Catalina Kitchen at the Terrenea Resort has built a reputation for having farm fresh ingredients and you can definitely taste the difference in every bite. My lunch of grilled swordfish on brioche with pesto aioli with fries was quite tasty and my lunch companion and I also enjoyed fresh garden salad with the freshest salad greens and the sweetest juiciest tomatoes I have ever had in my life and then we had to go and add Truffle Mac n Cheese with Pancetta. AMAZING.
The best pesto aioli ever
Extra avocado and tomato for the amazing grilled swordfish sandwich
This salad was so fresh and delicious
Salad and Crostini
Truffle mac n cheese with Pancetta
Gratuitous cheese shot
This sourdough rye bread was amazing. I could have made a meal out of this and salad
chocolate chip cookie baked in cast iron skillet
Vanilla Bean Ice Cream...soooooo good
look at all this gooey chocolate. It was as good as it looks. Please believe me
If you wanna do it right, you have to add a nice scoop of ice cream
You would think I'd stop there right? But no. I had to try this caramel creme brulee cheesecake with blackberry sauce and it was damn good too
Okay two desserts. Couldn't help myself. Don't judge me
Doesn't this look sweet and juicy?
It was absolutely delicious, but I could not finish it. I really really really wanted to, but we were stuffed. We left relaxed, full and happy:-) If you want a nice relaxing ocean front dining experience, this is a must try.
