Hidden neigbourhood gems in Clairemont?
We're planning to move to Clairemont in a few months and I just wondered if anyone had any surprising tips on bars/restaurants? I know we've got lots of fun choices down on Convoy but any other favorites? I think we'll end up driving/cabbing around a lot more but I thought I'd ask just in case!
If you don't mind ethnic, I'd recommend Little Lamb Mongolian Hot Pot. It's a different style of Shabu Shabu.
Fat Tony's Pizza on Diane, just off of Clairemont Mesa Blvd...as good a NY style pizza as any in SD. Fantastic place to have so close.
Pretty useful dive bar in Diane Shopping Center called The Watering Hole. In same complex there's a "Donut Shop" that features Mexican pasteles, excellent tortas and raspados.
Los Palmitos Taco Shop in the Fart & Smile (Smart & Final) strip mall and Las Playitas for Cocteles Mariscos - their Vuelve a la Vida is the bomb - in the same mall.
Arely's makes what I consider to be the best croissant in SD. Their sandwiches are pretty useless though.
