We decided to take a walk around the town of Encinitas and take a look at some of their vintage clothing stores. HOME had the best vintage clothing for both men and women. They have both used clothing and store-designed duds where they buy used clothing and paint on different logos. My husband ended up buying a blue buttoned-up shirt with a skull painted on the breast pocket that is really cute (I mean, bad-ass).
Since we were in Encinitas we remembered that Leucadia pizza was nearby and started craving their gourmet pizzas. We had been once before around the holidays and were very impressed with their goat cheese pizza with pineapple, peppers, bacon, etc.
Just like our previous visit, we managed to eat almost 2 baskets of their (free) garlic bread. It's totally addictive. So be warned. We were barely able to eat our salad and pizza.
I'm trying to be better about eating salads as often as possible and Leucadia pizza makes it really easy to stick by that resolution. They have many types and sizes of salads including Greek, apple and walnut, and a Green salad. We opted for the green salad with a honey mustard dressing made with grainy mustard. The half-sized salad was only 4 bucks and provided 2 servings each.
I was tempted to get the goat cheese pizza again but we decided to be a little more adventurous and ordered the Shrimp Pesto pizza with thin slices of tomatoes and sundried tomatoes. It almost tasted like a pesto pasta with shrimp. The best part about this restaurant is that they have so many sizes of all their dishes. The "small" pizza easily serves 2. We almost had to take some of it home. So we had a huge dinner with garlic bread, salad, and pizza for around $14 (plus tip, etc.). Not bad. Leucadia pizza definitely gets the gourmetish seal of approval.
