In Carlsbad right now-any good recs in the area?

Hi there! Im in Carlsbad for 5 days and could use some recs for excellent food in carlsbad and surrounding area (open to driving 10-15 miles as we have 2 small kids). We are adventurous eaters and love all cuisines. Can't be too fancy bc of kid factor. On the list so far: Armenian cafe (had lunch today); yoshino deli; Red oven pizza truck; carnitas snack shack; Taquerias La takiza-vista location. Thx!!!

  1. Try Casa de Bandini at the Forum, Carlsbad ( El Camino Real & Calle Barcelona. )

    1. Flying pig in oceanside

      1. Do you like craft beer? If so, Pizza Port Carlsbad might be worth a stop.

        1. I believe there were two long, complete threads addressing this query within the last month. This is summer rental season. So search for Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach threads.

          1. West Bistro and west seafood and steak are pretty tasty.



            They are affiliated with a hotel but the food has always been great.

            Kings seafood is a chain but they are very kid friendly and good food.


            Parking can be dicey in this location.
