As a North County girl, the drive into Coronado is always stunning and special. There usually needs to be a good reason for me to make the trip, whether it’s the Hotel del Coronado brunch, ice-skating or in this case, a fun foodie event. The Blue Bridge Hospitality’s Bridge Worthy Bites was a culinary walking tour of some of Coronado’s best bites. Relive some of my most delicious moments with me!

See What’s at Stake Here

Starting at the Stake Chophouse & Bar made a great first impression. The drink was Champagne and the bite was a succulent charcoal grilled pork and Wagyu beef skewer, topped with just the right amount of gourmet salt. It was surrounded by a well-balanced yogurt dip and a bright pickle medley for welcomed acidity. The chef was proud and the ambiance very upscale. Stop by for dinner to try this and other tasty menu items!

At Maretalia Ristorante there were many great choices of Italian wines and a very fun little dish of ricotta and fava bean ravioli with green garlic pesto. To our surprise, they decided to use beet juice in the dough, and the result was the ravioli looking much like a piece of salami! This hot spot serves lunch, dinner and happy hour daily plus a Sunday brunch—plenty of opportunities to get your Italian food fix.

And This Little Piggy Went to Coronado

Next on our list was Lil’ Piggy’s Bar-B-Q! The Piggy Poppers were a gourmet version of the jalapeño poppers that I grew up eating and definitely hit the spot for something a bit indulgent and decadent. They came with a sauce that balanced the heat and made them fun to dip.

In Pizza We Crust

The Village Pizzeria pizza brought back feelings of childhood, as it tasted so much like what my parents and I would order for delivery in LA back in the ‘90s. The ‘Hippie’ Pizza’s toppings were fresh; it was warm and satisfying—I’ll definitely be back!

We’re Here for the Noods

The West Pac Noodle Bar had my favorite drink of the night, Stone Brewing + Sake Mule, which was a cocktail made with Hiro Blue Junmai Ginjo Sake, fresh lime juice and Goslings Ginger Beer. It was delicious, refreshing and went great with the Ahi Poke Shooter and pork belly bite. Both the ahi and pork were well paired with julienned daikon and carrots on top of a bed of rice and topped with some thin Fresno chili for the perfect amount of heat. This place also had a great hangout vibe that I would find myself bringing friends back to. It was casual yet upscale, and the chef, Kaitlyn, was very enthusiastic, warm and inviting.

I’ll Have What Leroy’s Having

Our last savory stop was Leroy’s, which had a very approachable fine dining and rustic feeling. We were given a delicious sangria, Leroy’s Signature Cocktail, to go with the delicate quail, which sat atop some pea tendrils and was topped with a tomatillo salsa. The flavors were top notch; the meat was grilled with some hickory and then a nice slather of their barbecue sauce. The fresh peas on the plate made it so fantastic; it was lovely.

For Goodness Bakes…

Towards the end of our evening, it was time for desert from Crafted Baked Goods’ pop up next to MooTime Creamery. The storefront is in Liberty Station, but it was great to have them as a part of this foodie lineup. Crafted offered white and chocolate cake, which were both good, but, if I had to choose, the chocolate cake was the winner with deep, rich flavors that really satisfied.

I got the Moos Like Jagger

And lastly, we got our Mini Moo Sundaes, which were not so mini after all. The portion was made to fill you up, if you weren’t already. You got to choose from any of the sundaes on their menu boards. My guest and I chose the Tin Roof Sundae with vanilla ice cream, peanuts and fudge, and the S’mores Sundae with chocolate ice cream. This was Blue Bridge Hospitality’s first venture and holy cow was it good!
