Taking a first trip to San Diego (coming from NOLA), staying MLK weekend in Little Italy. Tell me your favorites in that 'hood....I like offbeat, non-chain, laidback. No need for fancy, just excellent food.
Also: food recs in/around the zoo? Schlepping up to the Safari Park w/a 17 year old; should I pack snacks or is the food at the park edible?
