I saw this posted on the Los Angeles Board and thought it might be fun to try on our board.
1. SD restaurants everybody loves but you (either actively dislike or think is overrated.)
2. SD restaurants nobody loves (either actively derides or just doesn't know about) but you.
3. SD restaurants everybody loves that you also love.
4. SD restaurants everybody loves that you've never been to.
#1 Bencotto - I only ate their once, but I must have either ordered the wrong thing or they were having a bad night. It wasn't terrible, but I didn't love it.
I also need to mention Searsucker, as our meal was terrible and overpriced.
#2 - Trattoria I Trulli (Encinitas) - I never see this restaurant mentioned. They make the best lasagna I've ever had and I love their bur-rata.
Mi Ranchito - Amazing taco shop in PQ that I never see mentioned. Fresh seafood and quality ingredients.
#3 - Farmhouse Cafe, Sushi Ota, Market, Trulucks, Sea Rocket Bistro
#4 - Kitchen 1540, Georges on the Cove, Mariscos German Truck
