Staying just N of the Gaslamp Quarter and will be attending events at the convention center, which I believe is just S of there.
I was there many years ago and ate at a very small (or at least very narrow) Mexican place that was quite affordable and tasty. I recall sitting at a bar and pretty much watching them prepare my food. Ring a bell for anyone? I believe this was pretty close to the convention center.
In addition to that I'm looking for some affordable chow in what I suspect is a high priced area. I'm lucky to be going to this convention, so I'd like to be respectful when submitting that expense report when it comes to the food category.
I'll try just about anything really. Perhaps a Brewery? Or perhaps something ethnic like Thai or Vietnamese place.
