Hello, I'm from Boston/NY looking for some rec's for my 4 days in SD (starting tomorrow). I'll be staying at Del Mar in Coronado

Day 1: From airport - drive straight to Super Cocina for late lunch
(maybe pick up some fish tacos to nurse the jetlag with). Any suggestions for takeout fish tacos in the Del Mar area (the brigatine? Miguels Cocina?)

Day 2: Going to Seaworld with the toddler - probably will do lunch (blech) at Seaworld because it is most convenient - Early dinner at
a sushi/Japanese joint - trying to decide between Kaito or izakaya sakura or Yu Me Ya. Are these places worth the drive to Encinitas? Are there really great sushi/Japanese places on the way back from Seaworld to Coronado? I also remember someone reccomended Cantina Panaderia which is near Seaworld?

Day 3: Day at the Del/beach: Lunch at Terrace, Cocktail at Peohe's. Dinner at Coronado (this is not flexible as we are attending a wedding there)

Day 4: Free/Flexible Day - Brunch at the Del. Haven't quite figured out this last day. I can either get Fish Tacos somewhere and find an activity to do around it. Trying to balance some toddler/grandparents friendly activities with chowdish food. Head over to Long Beach airport after dinner.

Option 1: Balboa Park - check out Extraodinary desserts, still need a dinner option on the way over Long Beach
Option 2: Fish Tacos - at El Zarape? but need to find some activity near it
Option 3: La Jolla, El Pescador Fish Market
Option 4: Mission Bay Park (would need rec's of places to eat)
Option 5: Seaport Village (same as above)

Other questions:
1. Couldn't find any "Must go places" in the Del Mar area so would love a few - but if nothing is really "worth" it then it is okay as I have a car.
2. Phil's Barbeque - is this worth going to? I spent 2 years living in Houston and really miss barbeque - Boston and NY just don't really compare. So I would be interested to try if you guys think it is comparable to TX
