Simple and Convenient Breakfast Dining at Kono’s Surf Club

Kono’s Surf Club isn’t really a surf club but does serve popular beach food for those enjoying their day on Pacific Beach.   Across from Crystal Pier and offering both inside seating and cliff side dinning you can still watch the waves as you quench your surfing appetite.   By design Kono’s is not a fancy restaurant but does fit within the age and lifestyle of Pacific Beach lovers. Items are offered under $6 and include a short list of egg burritos, scrambled eggs, and pancakes.  Having a large menu isn’t always a benefit. A growing trend in slicing offerings in casual dining establishments is growing (Coffer, 2012). Restaurants are finding that large menus increase cost, are complex, confuse customers, and don’t allow staff to focus on what they do best.  Restaurants are known for only a few items on their menu. Kono’s Surf Club is best remembered for their breakfast foods. Customers rave about their scrambled eggs and egg burritos. When they think of Kono’s they wi

Eating Out When a Healthy Menu is Lacking

Eating out is an activity busy Americans frequently in but don’t often understand the consequences of their food choices.   Some people eat out more than three times a week and this can have an impact on their waistline if they do not adjust their food selections. When Healthy Heart options are lacking an alternative strategy is needed. You can still enjoy your dining experience while eating healthy with a few simple tips. Part of the problem relates to the consumers choice of foods and the other is more akin to menu options.   Consumers regularly select foods that will satisfy their immediate cravings without regard to the longer consequences of poor eating.   At times restaurants don't offer healthy options or nutrition information. A little reflection can go a long way. Some restaurants offer a Healthy Heart option which can be an invaluable food selection tool.

Experience Authentic British Culture at Shakespeare Pub & Grille

People who dine out regularly experience culture with their food. They enjoy Asian culture through sushi, Mexican culture through tacos and French culture through fine dining. Don’t forget the creamy pasta in Italian restaurants. Yet few think of dining in the British style. If you want to experience the original culture of the first European settlers you may just want to make your way to the Shakespeare Pub & Grille. Fitting since July 4th is tomorrow- request a Samuel Adams! English food is distinct when compared to their American versions.

Many of the meats and herbs are grown in the local climate and are customary in British cuisine. Ham is also a favorite main staple.  Shakespeare Pub & Grille offers classic British dishes along with a few newcomers. Consi
