Coming from LA - what to eat in San Diego?

krystle920 | Aug 19, 2014 02:12 AM

We are visiting San Diego for the weekend, and trying to figure out what to eat that's a unique strength of the area. My initial thought is to focus on more specific Mexican food not widely available in LA. Mariscos German might be a good option (to compare with Ricky's Fish Tacos and Mariscos Jalisco in LA) - which location would be on the way to San Diego?

Aqui es Texcoco seemed interesting but I guess they just opened a branch in LA so no need to go there. Super Cocina seemed promising, but the consensus seems to be that it's just solid home cooking, and not mind blowing. Carnitas Shake Shack seems popular but not sure if it's really that flavorful/authentic or just a cool concept.

Thoughts? We are open to any type of cuisine. We are staying at Del Mar so probably looking to have lunch and dinner around San Diego on Saturday night, and just have brunch around Del Mar or surrounding beaches for lunch on Sunday.
