Visiting San Diego This Weekend
i'm visiting sunny san diego this weekend. i love to eat great food and will try anything. what are some places that are must eat?? i did just a little research and found a place that serves live octopus, Walmido. never had live octopus and its on my foodie bucket list. worth going to?
also, i read about the miho gastrotruck and jaynes gastropub. would love some feedback on those places i listed as well as places that you love in san diego. there is no budget as far as price. the sky is the limit. thanks guys!!
If you're downtown, I'd definitely recommend hitting the Little Italy Mercato. You can get live sea urchin...and a spoon to eat the roe (uni) while you shop. For something less tame, the same vendor (Poppa's) will shuck you some oysters while you wait. The entire market is great with 4 blocks of cool stuff.

"PommeDeGuerre," my buddy and I were in S.D. on Saturday to see the Adams Avenue Street Fair and the Becky's House benefit at Queen Bee's. We went to Pizzeria Bruno for a meal between the two events and it's a really good quality pizza. Thanks for the heads up. I checked your profile and you're in L.A. too. You seem to be pretty knowledgeable about the San Diego food scene. For the late night munchies we went to Marie's Cafe which makes pretty basic good diner type food. We've been there a few times after shows in University Heights so they treat us pretty nicely.
Oops! Sorry for the late response, but my friend and I are going down to S.D. to catch a couple of San Diego ex-pat singers who now reside in L.A. at Lestats next weekend. Thanks again and I'm going to check this thread before we hit the road next weekend. You've got credibility with us! We'll read the whole thread, but you've been a big help and my tummy thanks you.
Head over to Cucina Urbana for dinner, then cross the street and go to Mr A's for cocktails and killer views of San Diego.
