Had a splendid evening yesterday checking out Swami’s State Beach and Peace Pies for dinner in the quaint town of Encinitas just north of San Diego. Swami’s beach was beautiful with lots of surfers out and some nice packed sand that I started to dream about doing some early morning yoga on. Peace Pies blew my mind with their pesto stuffed tomatoes. The pesto was thick and flavorful, a recipe I will have to try and replicate sometime soon. For my entree I had the Mystical Mushroom Quesadilla which was also delicious. Their spicy salsa and fresh guacamole are definitely what hit the spot. Both the beach and the restaurant I highly recommend for a nice quiet evening in Encinitas. Looking forward to seeing what else Encinitas and North County have to offer.
