CHOW DOWN IN CARLSBAD
Looking for good places to chow down in Carlsbad and surrounding areas (Enicnitas, Solano Beach, etc.). Good food, reasonable prices, nothing trendy, nothing "too-too." We like fresh seafood but reviews of the local restaurants by the Chowhounds say the food is OK and is overprices. We're easy to please - if we get desperate we'll pick up a rotisserie chicken at Sam's Club!
Pelly's Fish Market in Carlsbad for wonderful and affordable ($8 - $9 for a sandwich/$12 -$13 for a plate) fresh seafood
Kaito in Encinitas for the best sushi in the county, again at very reasonable prices for the quality and expertise.

For seafood go to Fish House Veracruz. There is one in Carlsbad and San Marcos. The San Marcos location is larger and tends to be less crowded. They also have a great fish market.
Trattoria i Trulli for outstanding, innovative Italian on Coast Highway in Encinitas.
Quero for Peruvian and South American fare on Coast Highway in Encinitas.
