Suggestions for Chinese. Shanghai or Szechuan
or any other good authetic chinese. I'll be in SD for quite awhile and want to explore.
Whatever happened to the LA Sichuan place that moved to Convoy area?
Actually, I was there last several years ago (circa 2008?) and truth be told, the meal was not very good. But I did have a great meal there prior to that visit, and had some very good meals in the LA incarnation. Wish I could remember the names of both.
Chinese isn't a real strongpoint for San Diego. Having said that, I would tepidly recommend:
1. Weekend Brunch/Breakfast on Chin's Miramar.
3. Littlesheep as a copout
If you really want spicy, I had a surprisingly decent meal at Chili Max, which replaced Ba Ren and has changed ownership multiple times. Its now a Hunan restaurant, and some of the dishes were pretty good, but Szechuan standards were well, kinda crap.
I would strongly recommend trying Korean or even Japanese restaurants instead if you must stay in San Diego.
Hi there! I lived in queens for many years then moved to SD by way of SF..so I can confidently say that I've had my share of good ethnic eats esp Chinese/Vietnamese. Now, it would be hard to find anything comparable to pho bang (elmhurst) or joe's shanghai so here is what I've found to be worth checking out.
Korean BBQ: Manna (all you can eat)
Pho: Pho Hoa (only serves pho) or
Lucky Seafood or Pho Ca Dao (good for the price)
Vietnamese: Phuong Trang (BBQ pork wrap is yummy)
Indian: Himalayan Cuisine (not as good as baluchi's but closest do far)
Filipino: Tita's Kitchenette
Japanese: Izakaya Sakura
...yet to find Chinese worth mentioning. Hope this helps.
The Del Rey Rendevouz really impressed me for lunch recently.
The Waiter gave a COMPLETE descreiption of the dishes, that I was interested in. This was the best knowledge of the MenuDishes, that I ever received any where in my lifetime.
The order of Fried Borwn Rice with Chichen was one of the very best in any chinese restaurant. The rice was perfectly cooked and SEASONED!. Much finer preparation, then I expect in a Chinese place.
Would not hesitate ordering most things on the menu and enjoying.. Will be back soon.
They know their stuff
