I lived in S.F pretty much all my life, then got laid-off so moved down to San Diego for some good Mexican eating...and a job.
Anyways, I'll be coming back next week for a trade-show with about 2 dozen co-workers and they expect me to be the guide for some good eats. The problem is I've always picked "hole in the wall" type places: Shalimar, pho, chinese, mediterranean...etc. My theory is this: the small places are family owned and depend on the place for income, so the food has to be good and cheap.
I now live in San Diego and the people I work with for the most part, aren't very adventurous eaters. One of them wants to go to Crustaceans but I don't want to spend $30 on a crab that I've made better.
Anyways enough of my gripe, I'll take one for the team. Can you guys recommend some places near the Moscone center?
