Sandwiches in SD
I am going to be in San Diego next weekend for the marathon; my hotel is in the Sea World area. I am looking for a good pre-race sandwich on Saturday night. I don't want to spend a ton of money but I don't want to end up at a chain, I would like something unique to the area if possible. Since it's the night before the marathon the sandwich can't have a ton of fat and not be crazily seasoned, I don't want to get sick while running or be unable to sleep. Any recommendations are appreciated. Thanks!
Try the cheesesteak or chicken cheesesteak at the Gourmet Bagger in Sportsarena. Very close to SeaWorld. the deli at Mona Lisa's in Little Italy is also awesome. i like the Caprese with imported prosciutto added. EZ J's in Pb is really good. Try the Malibu. Poma's in OB, the meatball sub or turkey sub.
Good luck in the marathon, I'll be doing it also!
When I was doing distance running, a long time ago, I always chose a tuna melt the night before the race, not too heavy and good protein with whole grain bread. Kono's on Garnet in Pacific Beach makes an excellent tuna sandwich, Broken Yolk on Garnet makes a tuna melt and also, Bread & Cie is always very good. Good luck!
