Really Good Budget Eats in San Diego? (downtown and the Beaches)

vcinbc | Feb 8, 2013 03:48 PM

Hope above is fairly self-explanatory. Have not been to SD in a few years. Taking a short holiday on a very tight budget, no car. Fairly well-travelled, adventurous palette, shun Fast Food/corporate chains

I seek recommendations in: Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach, Coronado, Downtown, Gaslight Quarter, Old Town.

Seafood, (oysters, fish tacos esp.) "ethnic" (whatever that may mean to you), local specialties, food trucks(only if they're exceptional). Give me something I might not find at home, which is Vancouver, BC.

Preferably you &/or a trusted source have dined there in last 3 months. Been stung too many times by the well-meaning "nice little place I found years ago" rec's.

Before you jump on me for 'not searching first' - I did! But was frustrated by somewhat clunky site, shortage of time, relevance, etc. Mostly the time thing.

Many thanks in advance!
