Bread Pudding Renaissance

One of my favorite desserts is bread pudding. I love the homey simplicity of it, but it seems to be popping up in the most chic of locales for the last few years. Here's the scoop on where to get it in SD!!!!
Move over cupcakes and step aside s’mores, there is a new favorite dessert in town and it just might surprise you. Although it was hardly haute cuisine in the 18th century, bread pudding is in the midst of a culinary comeback. Bread pudding used to be a way for bakers to salvage stale bread. Then it became a dessert traditionally enjoyed during the Christmas season. Now found coast-to-coast on dessert menus from both casual and upscale eateries, bread pudding is mainstream once again. Stop into one of these San Diego restaurants for a hot new twist on a vintage dessert.

True North Tavern is putting a sophisticated spin on this frugal favorite. Indulge in Pear Bread Pudding, sprinkled with toasted almonds, drizzled with cinnamon caramel and paired with creamy vanilla bean ice cream. You won’t hear anyone calling this dish “a poor man’s pudding.”

Treat yourself to a little dessert for breakfast at barleymash. Make your way to this downtown restaurant and bar and order the Angry Orchard Bread Pudding French Toast. Spiked with Angry Orchard hard apple cider and topped with sweet agave cream cheese and seasonal berries, it made be hard to believe that this boozy breakfast treat is the most important meal of the day.

You may be far from the French Quarter, but you don’t have to travel far to get a taste of New Orleans. Head west to Pacific Beach’s The Duck Dive for a Creole spin on your new favorite dessert. The Pecan Bourbon Butterscotch Bread Pudding pays homage to its Louisiana roots with a touch of bourbon, a sprinkle of caramel sauce and a scoop of vanilla bean gelato. Bon appétit!

The perfect ending to any smokehouse meal, Brazen BBQ is serving up a traditional version of this down home dessert. Lightly spiced, loaded with raisins and pecans and finished with a bourbon crème sauce, you’ll be sure to save room for this southern favorite.
Find your balance at Uptown Tavern. A little bit sweet, a little salty and a whole lot of delicious, their Pistachio Bread Pudding is sure to keep your taste buds happy. Paired with a decadent salted caramel sauce and sweet vanilla ice cream, this comfort food come-up is the best of both worlds.
