Catalina Kitchen (LV's LA)

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.
