[You can read the first review here.] It has become a San Diego tradition for me to hit up Extraordinary Desserts. I was down in SD for 5 days working the auto show at Camp Jeep so after training the first day, I dropped by this place to get some chocolate (it was National Chocolate Day!) dessert to share with Duc with wine. He was sweet enough to drive to SD to spend a day-ish with me on his day off. Anyhow, one of the things that I don't like about big cities is the whole parking situation! Though I had meant to stop in for grabbing desserts to go, I ended up staying for a drink and some bruschetta because I wanted to make full usage of the $1.25 I paid for an hour's time of parking. Thus, I sat at the bar in a forever-alone type of way by eating and drinking.

So, I went ahead and ordered their buffalo mozzarella bruschetta and funghi misti bruschetta ($6 during happy hour). I also saw that they had Oaked Arrogant Bastard for only $3 at that time so I ordered it. The waitress told me they were out but she'd give me any beer for the same price. What a nice offer. I chose the Allagash Tripel Ale instead because I was curious about the passionfruit it toted having (I like Kona's Wahlua for that tart tang). The breads were delicious! I really enjoyed the flavors atop them but I'm not sure that the price was all too good for just two pieces. As for the beer, the passionfruit was quite understated but it was still a very pleasant fruity beer that masked the 9% ABV it had. For desserts, I snagged a Viking cake and Lemon Bar on the way out - the Viking is oh so decadent and chocolately indulgent while the lemon bar really kicks you in the face with tartness. Delish!
