TIP | OLIVE CAFÉ SAN DIEGO

Café Olive
805 Santa Clara Place
San Diego, CA 92109

Man siger at morgenmaden er det vigtigeste måltid vi spiser i løbet af dagen. Min far har altid sagt, spis som en konge til morgenmad, en prinsesse til frokost og en bonde til aftensmad. Så en anbefaling til et lille morgenmad’s sted er vist på sin plads. Mia har boet i San Diego for et par år siden så hun havde så meget at vise mig at en enkelt dag ikke var nok! Café Olive er et lille lokalt spisested på en stille gade i Mission Beach. Jeg har sjældent oplevet et mindre turistede sted i Californien (hvor det føles som alle steder har stået i en turist guide). Maden, og de mennesker som spiste den var så autentiske og stemningen var i sandhed en stille morgen summen. Vi sad udenfor, på plastik stole og nød duften af hav mens vi så utallige surfere gå til og fra stranden. De stoppede ofte lige op og gik inde på Café Olive for at købe en lemonade eller en muffin to go. Maden var simpel, amerikansk og mættede godt. Perfekt forberedelse til en dag på Mission Beach (som forresten opleves). God fornøjelse!

english: It has been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. My dad always says, eat like a king in the morning, a princess in the afternoon and a farmer at night. So a little breakfast recommendation is appropriate for the blog don’t ya think? Mia has lived in San Diego a couple of years ago and she had so much to show me that one day simply wasn’t enough! Café Olive is a small, very local eatery located on a small, quite street in Mission Beach. It’s rare to find such a non touristy place in California (where everything seems to have been in some kind of turist book). The food, and the people eating it are so authentic and the vibe is just a perfect, quite morning hum. We sat outside on plastic chairs just enjoying the smell of ocean. Countless surfers were commuting to and from the beach and many of them stopped for a lemonade or a muffin to go. The food was simple, american and had a solid lay in the stomach. Perfect start for a day at Mission Beach (a place you absolutely must see btw). Enjoy!

TIP | THE MELROSE TRADING POST

The Melrose trading post

Nogen ting kommer før andre. Indrøm det nu bare, når man vender tilbage til et sted man har været mange gange er der en lille routine. Nogen ting man lige skal fordi ellers er det som om man ikke helt er tilbage endnu. Når jeg lander i L.A skal jeg altid have en glazed donut (gerne så hurtigt så muligt), besøge Griffith Observatory, se Santa Monica pier and aflægge visit på Melrose tranding post. Jeg tror mange som besøger L.A ved mange fine ting om byen men knap så mange kender til Melrose tradig post. Så jeg føler det er min pligt at oplyse jer om denne skat. Hver søndag, i regn eller solskind, bliver parkeringpladsen foran Fairfax highschool indtaget af utallige telte. Placeringen er genial, lige mellem Melrose og Fairfax avenue. Der er ikke et sejere sted du kunne befinde dig på en søndag. Smykker, musik, vintage tøj, møbler, mad – hvad end dit L.A hjerte begærer. Dette er hvor du finder det. Du kan også være heldig at spotte et par celebrities, de flakker ofte rundt her på en søndag! Det er også et genialt sted at shoppe vintage denim, aflagt militær tøj og über cool band t-shirts, du ved de helt originale. Det er en stor skattejagt med god udsigt til fangst hver gang. God fornøjelse!

english: First thing first. There’s always a few things that you just need to do when visiting a place you love. A routine if you will. When I return to L.A I always want a glazed donut (ASAP this one), visit Griffith Observatory, see the Santa Monica pier and go to the Melrose tranding post. Otherwise I simply don’t feel like I am really here yet. It has come to my attention that while many of you know many things about L.A, you don’t all know what the Melrose Trading post is. So I feel it is my duty to enlighten you. Every sunday, rain or shine, a huge flea market takes over the Fairfax high school parking lot. Located in between Fairfax and Melrose avenue it is the coolest place to be on a sunday. Jewelry, vintage clothing, furniture, food, music – everything L.A cool you can think of is probably there. Also if you are lucky, celebrity spotting is not uncommon at the market. It’s also a genius place to shop vintage denim, old military clothing (the real kind) and über cool band t-shirts. It’s one big treasure hunt! Enjoy!

Jeg er nødt til at state med at sige at jeg indeed har brudt en regel ved at ligge dette post op. Jeg bruger aldrig, aldrig, ALDRIG iPhone billeder på min blog – og det er ikke ment som et diss til folk der gør det men på min platform er det et no go. Men her er grunden til jeg gjorde en undtagelse og hvorfor, at det her blogpost er vigtigt! På vores sidste aften i Madrid havde vi besluttet at vores middag skulle være work free – det skal de altså nogengange være. Men oh hvad gør man når det sidste sted man spiser er det bedste?! Vi stødte på den her lille restaurant på hjørnet af et eller andet spansk og noget andet spansk da vi var på vej hen til et bao sted jeg havde læst om på nettet. Sebastian stoppede op og sagde “Se hvor lækkert det der sted ser ud!” jeg blev selvfølgelig øjeblikkelig fornærmet, slog med nakken og sagde “jamen hvis du ikke gider spise bao så skal du da bare sige det.” (meget typisk mig) – så min søde mand sagde så at vi jo selvfølgelig skal spise bao så vi gik videre. Bao stedet var så lukket om mandagen fordi en hvis rødhåret person ikke havde gjort hendes research godt nok. Sebastian lyste op og sagde “ejj kan vi så godt spise der hvor det så så dejligt ud?!” Hvad skulle jeg sige? Nej? Så vi gik til bare og god dammit han havde ret, det så virkelig lækkert ud. Det smagte fantastisk, det var virkelig venligt prissat og stedet havde en vidunderlig atmosphere. Menuen var en blanding af spanish, mexicansk og amerikansk. Stedet var fyldt til renden hele tiden og af god grund. Vi fik 3 forretter, 3 hovedretter, en kande lemonade og 2 flasker vand for 40 euros. Jeg følte mig næsten en smule ked af det, velvidende at jeg ikke kunne spise der on the regular. Men hvis du er i Madrid anbefaler jeg virkelig denne fine restaurant, det var super skønt, insta venligt og pakkede med lokale. God fornøjelse!

english: First thing first, I have broken a rule with this post. I never ever post pictures on my blog that are taken with an iPhone – and that is not meant as an insult to those who do that on their blogs BUT for my platform it is a no go. But here is why I made the exception and why, therefore, this blogpost is important! On our last night in Madrid we went out to dinner and we decided it would be work free – sometimes it needs to be, right? But oh what do you do when the last place you eat is the best?! We stumbled upon this little restaurant on the corner of something and something as we were headed to a Bao place that I had read about online. Sebastian stopped and said, “wow that looks so nice!”, I instantly got offended saying “well if you don’t want the Bao you can just say so!” (typical me response) – so sweet as my man is, we went on to the Bao place that was of course closed on Mondays because I hadn’t done my research properly. Sigh. Sebastian almost glowed as he said “can we eat at that place with the plants outside then?!”. What was I gonna say? No? So we went back and god dammit he was right, it did look amazing. It also tasted amazing, was greatly priced and just had the most fantastic atmosphere. The menu was a mixture of everything good. There was some Spanish dishes, some Mexican dishes and some good old American burgers.  The place was completely stuffed and for good reason. We had 3 starters to share, 3 main courses, a chug of lemonade and 2 bottles of water for only 40 euros. I almost felt sorry for myself that I couldn’t eat there on the regular – it was just wonderful. If you are in Madrid I can only recommend this place, it was a truely authentic, super insta friendly and packed with locals! Enjoy!
