san diego: chow, drink, and excursions

Taking a 7-10 day vacation to visit buddy in San Diego. He's very central in the city. i have scoured all the other posts about the area and copied down the info, but i was hoping for a little more.

First of all, good restaurants. I'm not interested in formal affairs that cost a lot of cash. (besides, the area seems renowned for its humbler fare) One pricey restaurant would be fine.

I'm especially interested in Mexican--- tamales. some BBQ wouldn't hurt. Good Vietnamese and Korean are musts as well, as well as any other kind of cuisine. what are your faves?

anybody know any good bars to go to? I have one suggestion (the Irish "the Fields"). where to catch good music (jazz, blues, funk, etc)? any place with good food or near good food? what else should i see when i come to town?

finally, we were planning on making an excursion to Tijuana. any suggestions on best places to eat/drink/visit there?

If any of you ever make it by Tampa, let me know. I'll give you the skinny. Thanks, guys.
