Leucadia-Encinitas Bound - CH recs?
I love this time of year when my family can escape the desert and hit the beach. We are migrating down from Carlsbad after a couple of years, just a little south to Leucadia- Encinitas area and are looking for some great recs. I've read and heard great things about Kaito and Yu Me Ya, so I think we have Japanese/Sushi covered. We are looking for the lowdown on the best recs for the area for other foods (pizza, Italian, burgers, taco stands, and anything else totally chow worthy. We have a lot of meals to cover and a budget that goes from taco stands in between surfing to a couple of nice meals out.

Go to Raul's Shack. Get a variety of tacos, with drinks. Stroll a few blocks West down the street to the benches over looking the beach. You're welcome.
I'm not a surfer, but I usually see them there.
My favorites echo a lot of Beach Chick's, but here we go:
Claires - great brunch spot
Blue Ribbon - best "gourmet" pizza around
East Coast Pizza - good slices
Mozy's Cafe - delicious healthy(ier) vegetarian burritos
Peace Pies - awesome vegan food...surprisingly filling
Rudy's - best carne asada, I personally love their street tacos, huevos rancheros, and tortas
Swami's - good acai bowls
Rosanna's - can't beat her paninis
Jorge's - best Mexican spicy chicken soup
Seaside market - great sandwiches and deli treats
