The Elegant Truffle, San Diego

The Elegant Truffle, San Diego

What to buy here: Gourmet Chocolate. San Diego isn’t really known as a fine dining destination, but it definitely knows how to do dessert. Decadent, all-natural peanut butter cups and artesian chocolates made with Japanese wasabi are just some of the cocoa delights being created by San Diego’s finest chocolate chefs, but for a really decadent, mouth-watering reminder of your San Diego vacation, why not bring home a box of hand-made artesian truffles? The Elegant Truffle in Point Loma is one of the few truffle makers in San Diego and their candies are hand-made from the finest ingredients. The over-sized truffles are covered in dark chocolate and come in several popular flavors such as champagne, cognac, zinfandel, Muscat, and ginger, although flavors change daily. Also available is the equally decadent hand-made caramel dipped in dark or milk chocolate. One piece of caramel is the size of a small brownie and is made from the same recipe the owner’s grandmother used in 1875, using the same copper kettle, because you don’t mess with perfection. Cost: $4 per truffle. $5 per caramel chunk. Where to buy: The Elegant Truffle, 1111 Scott Street, San Diego, CA 92106. Hours: 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday–Saturday. Closed Sunday and Monday. Phone: (619) 222-1889.
