Ethnic cuisine in DT San Diego?

starlightjulian | Jun 28, 2007 12:48 AM

Hello!! A friend from NJ and I (AZ) are visiting for a few days in August. I LOVE almost every cuisine. I'd say one of the very few Food Network shows I DO NOT ENJOY watching is "Bizarre Foods," and not bec. of the topic of eating "bizarre" foods, but because the host forced himself to eat something he clearly couldn't stand the first time he tried it... such as putrid meat stored in its own putrid fat. But back to my post...

I am in search of great ethnic restaurants in downtown area (Filipino?? and everything else- Thai, Japanese, Indian, Mediterranean, Lebanese, Vietnamese, etc.). Any great vegetarian restaurants? We won't have a rental car; will just go on foot or use complimentary shuttles, taxis, and street peddlers (?). Fresh seafood is also a must (crabcakes, sushi/sashimi, etc)!! Best desserts?

So far, recommended eateries are:

Cafe on Park
Hash House
George's at the Cove
Taste of Thai
Sushi Deli (although I read some bad reviews on

Any thoughts? Any suggestions that trump those above? Please help!
Thank you!!
