I love good food and I'm glad I found this board. It's always a hobby of mine to go out in seach of good, filling, tasty, and affordable food. I'm looking for recommendations on good deals in the San Diego area, specifically on lunch specials, you know, the ones that include a main entree, soup, and maybe even an appetizer. Please list the restaurant name, location, prices, days that they are available, and any specific dishes you recommend. I'll start.
Szechuan House in Mira Mesa. The owners have been around over 20 years and I've been coming here for quite a while. I did a quick browse and I'm surprised nobody's mentioned this place yet. Lunch specials are Monday-Saturday and start at $5.50 and include the main entree, soup, and appetizers......you can't beat the price. I usually get the Mongolian Beef or Chef's shrimp which are a bit more expensive but still a good deal. The also have really good Sweet n Sour Chicken, Broccoli Beef, and Kung Pao Chicken.
Celadon Thai in Hillcrest. Lunch specials are $5.95 and include the main entree and soup/salad. Their spicy noodles are very tasty and I also love their curry with chicken there. I drove by recently but they seem to have moved. Does anyone know what happened to this place?
