San Diego - "Solar Power" Foodies?

Hello all friendly foodies -- anyone traveling to the Solar Power Conference this next week and looking to get together for some adventurous eating? I'm here now until next Friday (10/17). Looking at the boards I've gathered a couple destinations for food exoduses (exodi?): Mariscos German and Aqui es Texcoco... anyone know the area well?

The Gaslamp district just doesn't do it for me. Although, I will say I made an interesting find last night at a place called Calaco Grill which had homemade tortillas (flour and corn). The only taco worth getting out of the four I tried though was the Burraco -- a mix of avocado salsa, carne asada, and melted cheese. OK, it was more than that, don't hold it to my description.

So who's ready to go on some adventures?

  1. Hey Aron,

    A friend and I are also in town for the solar conference, and looking to taste some of the best and most interesting SD has to offer. I have Sushi Ota on my list, but need to add some authentic Mexican and seafood places. Let me know what you're plans are and maybe we can meet up.
