Sculpted into the coastal foothills of San Diego County, Lake San Marcos Country Club’s North Course spans 6,426 yards of lush fairways and well-manicured greens. Throughout the course, mature trees await wayward orbs on the edges of fairways, and serpentine bodies of water crisscross fairways, punishing duffers for errant shots. Before taking to the links, golfers can prepare with a stint at the club’s full-length driving range, where all-grass hitting stations emulate on-course conditions as well as an opportunity to seek vengeance on Mother Earth for a lifetime of traumatizing grass stains. Casual eats at Gordon’s on the Green help restore energy after rounds that include the treacherous trek up the 12th hole—a 606-yard par 5 that runs almost entirely uphill. Those looking for a quick golf experience akin to reading the abridged version of Jack Nicklaus’s cookbook can take to the South Course, a par 58 executive layout.

After graduating from high school, Reza Karkouti dreamed of opening his own teriyaki restaurant. He garnered support from family and friends, and he and his father, Ahad, opened a tiny eatery called Tokyo's Teriyaki in Encinitas in 1992. Through hard work and an attention to detail, the restaurant's reputation grew, and the demand for juicy, teriyaki-glazed chicken and beef quickly spread to other cities. This led Reza’s younger brother, Amir, to help open a second location. Now a seven-location, family-owned chain, Surf Brothers Teriyaki still sees its two siblings focusing on customer service and quality products.

The duo chooses natural meats that are minimally processed, hand trimmed, and grilled, avoiding shortcuts such as microwaves, frozen foods, and laser-based slicing. Their Hawaiian-themed restaurants and catering business have been featured in numerous television spots, radio shows, and newspaper articles. Michelle Murphy Zive of SanDiegoFamily.com says the restaurant offers "a taste of Hawaii" and "healthy food served fast." The brothers give back to the community that helped them grow by donating to charitable organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Homes project.

Or meat-seekers can paint the palate red with a Slaw Be Jo—a behemoth bovine sub roll enshrouding roast beef, provolone cheese, russian dressing, cole slaw, and mayonnaise ($6.99 for a 9"). Leaving no tongue behind, Capriotti's caters to all dietary desires with various vegetarian options and a slew of thirst quenchers designed to tickle the taste buds beneath a sea of bubbly satisfaction.

According to Zagat, the portions of breakfast plates at Broken Yolk Cafe can be "obscene"—although one could also consider them generous. Sometimes, these sizes are even considered a challenge. In 2010, Man Vs. Food's Adam Richman paid the restaurant a visit to tackle its infamous Iron Man Special: a 12-egg omelet, topped with chili and piled onto a 15-inch pizza pan.

Opened in 1979, Broken Yolk has spent decades fine-tuning its southwestern recipes—many enigmatically named for people such as "Betty" and "Tony G". Alongside steaming breakfast burritos and griddled buttermilk pancakes, the menu features nearly 20 omelets stuffed with fresh ingredients such as beef chorizo, avocado, and mushroom sauce. Shredded hash-browns are crafted from fresh potatoes, and the salsa is handmade each day. Until its official closing time at 3 p.m., Broken Yolk also serves sandwiches and half-pound Angus burgers. The local chain's six locations each feature their own private banquet room and secret underground passage to one of the other restaurants.

A Japanese-owned-and-operated dining destination, Hyuga Sushi combines time-honored sushi techniques with the freshest seafood available to create both classic and creative Japanese fare. The sushi menu includes a full net of specialty rolls such as the Samurai ($9.50), a hunger-slaying combination of fresh crab, avocado, cucumber, and yamagobo topped with mackerel and ginger, or the Felix ($12.50), a fun-loving concoction of crab, avocado, and shrimp tempura, topped with smoked salmon and spicy mayo, kept in line by the more reclusive Oscar roll. A selection of skillfully sliced sushi-bar entrees ($12.95–$20.95) further sates unbaked yens, and the equally tempting lunch and dinner menus offer a variety of nonsushi dishes ($6.50–$14.50). Hyuga's intermingling of tradition and modernity is further exemplified in its décor, which marries traditional Japanese design with iconic American photographs, including a young Marlon Brando long before he developed his voracious appetite for tempura-battered furniture.
