I consider myself a bit of a foodie but not exactly a snob about it, I love a good fish taco as much as I love pretentious French food. Fortunately living in San Diego there are more than enough restaurants to tickle my fancy.
Fortunately so far this year there have been a bunch of new restaurants that have opened up giving me the chance to try some great new food. If you want to do some fine dining about town then here are some great new places to try.
Tuétano Taqueria in San Ysidro
I told you I loved a good taco and this quiet unassuming place is a great place to get one. The owner of Tuétano Taqueria, Priscilla Curiel hails from Tijuana and a long line of restaurateurs. While the tacos are amazing the birria is to die for!
There is nothing quite as satisfying as a good Italian meal, you can head on over to Little Italy and get some better than average Italian cuisine but quite frankly none compare to Cesarina in Point Loma. You can find some great entrees from different regions of Italy and the pasta is freshly made to order. You can pick your choice of pasta and top it off with a variety of different sauces. It makes me want to go back and try them all!
Blind Lady Ale House
Nicknamed by locals as BLAH, yes that is horrid but you will remember it. If you want great food in a casual environment, think upscale pub grub and you have got Blind Lady Ale House. You can sip a delectable craft beer while nibbling on some great thin crust pizza. This is a great place for getting together with friends for some great conversation with good food.
If you live or work downtown then you have got to check this place out. It is an amazing pizza/Italian restaurant using only locally sourced ingredients. While the pizza is famous there is a ton of other delicious dishes to try too. They make their own bread onsite so try one of the sandwiches. Prices are stupidly cheap, you can get a Margherita pizza for just $7 so you can’t go wrong. The run different specials everyday…the place is amazing!
There are no shortages of great places to dine out in San Diego and you’re probably just a stone’s throw away from some fantastic food. If you are looking for something new then give these places a try.
