    1. re: Fake Name

      I second Saigon! It's my favorite lunch place in the world... the City Heights one, that is, not the Hillcrest one. Majorly lacking in ambiance, but a bowl of pho and an order of spring rolls is the best.

    2. sitting on Sunset cliffs with a deli sandwich from Olive Tree Market or a burrito from Nico's.

      1. 2nd El Pescador, excellent grilled fish sammies
        Maritiza's in Clairmont for a Carnita's plate

            1. re: Indirect Heat

              I openly admit I am not a ramen expert but lately I do love going to Yakudori ramen for lunch at least once a month. I also like: Tender Greens, Bread Cie, Salad Style (to go), Lean n Green, and a lovely little place for a leisurely lunch in Hillcrest is Olivetto. None of these are spectacular but they are just what I love for lunch. PLSF is too insane at lunchtime for me but I love the scallop sandwich.

              Tender Greens
              2400 Historic Decatur Rd, San Diego, CA 92106

              Olivetto Restaurant
