A Day of Eating and Drinking in San Diego...your picks
Nice topic BC, one scenario for me would be:
For breaky, I'll take Park House Eatery.
For Lunch, a ride to the Marisco's Pescadore truck for a marlin and goubernator taco. I pack a few chairs and a few brews in the trunk, volia! (ever try this?) this stuff goes great with a cold one.
Apps and a sip of wine, Georges Ocean Terrace, nice choice BC!
Dinner, depending on my mood, Donovan's in LJ or maybe Wine Vault.
OK so are these two trucks from the same owner??? Doug I thought you were the one that told me to go to Super cocina and the truck mariscos german down the street?? Did your chow palate change in the last mth or am I getting you confused with another poster???
WE are around where the cruise ships come in and little italy area. dont mind a drive for GREAT FOOD.. Mama Testa's repeat visit for sure on list and one truck lets make it the best truck visit :O)
growler of beer is this a brand??
That may have been me. I forget. Super Cocina and Mariscos German are distinctly different and both great in their own way. I don't believe Mariscos German is open for breakfast but Super Cocina does have several great breakfast offerings. Nothing against Mariscos German and it still is highly recommended.
Cavaillon if it is Sunday
Coffee Cup Cafe
Ricky's (for Dutch apple pancake)
Pacifica Breeze Cafe
Surati Farsan Mart
Sab E Lee
Copper Chimney Indian food truck
George's on the Cove (downstairs)
Oceanaire (for oysters)
Yu Me Ya
Tsuruhashi Japanese BBQ
Yakitori Yakyudori and Ramen (Hillcrest or Convoy)
Buga Korean BBQ
Mariscos Pescador is in CV, and yes it is more of a trek. In my opinion, they have the best deep fried fish tacos in town, the best I have ever had. (My current favorite grilled fish taco is Sea Rocket Bistro's offering at the Little Italy Farmer's Market). Everything I have ordered from this truck has been excellent. It is worth the trek at least once, then you can decide for yourself.
re: Captain Jack
Is this CV a community south of sd or part of it like la jolla is? WE will be staying west of gaslamp near little italy so we could walk to this farmers market?? I take it is in little italy?
Is the german mariscos well known for something other then the fried fish taco's ??? or is that their specialty?
No, La Jolla is a postal annex, Chula Vista is an encorporated city. I mapquested it for you from Horton Plaza (Heart of Gaslamp) and Mariscos Pescador is 9.64 miles and an estimated 14 minute drive.
You should go to the LIFM on Saturday for sure. It is walking distance from the Gaslamp. The grilled fish tacos from the Sea Rocket Bistro stand are excellent, as are their grilled sardines. Don't miss the live sea urchins, tiny coconut Thai pancakes, or Knight's Salumi either.
Mariscos German is well known for their smoked marlyn and gobenader (sort of stir fried shrimp, cellery, onion, bell pepper, tomatoes) tacos.
Both trucks can be viewed at Kirk K's blog
