Situated in Encinitas on the 101, East Village is a hot spot to North County locals. The urban design and casual “vibe” of the diner compliments it’s impressive California-Asian inspired food and drink menu.
Although we are sure that each menu item is drool-worthy, our favorite East Village menu item is the “Monk’s Stone Pot.” The stone pot base is very simple, consisting of your choice of white or brown rice topped with veggies, over-easy egg, and a drizzle of their signature hot sauce, all served together in a super heated stone pot. Although unnecessary, you can increase your bowls deliciousness by adding your choice of special toppings such as tofu, pork, rib-eye, salmon, and kimchi. Our favorite is the salmon, but none will disappoint!
Be sure to treat yourself to this diner the next time you are in Encinitas, and don’t forget to utilize the signature hot sauce. East Village’s website calls its monk’s sauce “the new ‘it’ sauce, better that all other sauces combined!” We couldn’t agree more!
