Lunch ideas for five days in June
HI, We will be in San Diego for 5 nights in June. I have my dinner planned but need help with lunches. Here are my dinner plans:
Georges- California Modern
So any seafood, Thai, or mexican recommendations would be welcome. We will try other places but I wanted to help narrow down the suggestions.
We may spend a day on Coronado and on the beach at Del Mar so we would like to find good lunch spots there. And, is there any good mexican in Old Town?
Michoz -(Lebanese) in Hillcrest
Sab-E-Lee (Thai) in LV (but it only has tables for up to 4)
Koon (Thai) in KM - lunch specials until 3:30
Kensington Cafe (American) in, well, Kensington
El Agave in Old Town
I'd have Lunch at Costa Brava instead of dinner. It's not in the same league as your other excellent dinner choices.
This is the standard answer on the San Diego board, but when you say Mexican what is it that you are looking for, and what are you used to? Taco/burritos, or something different? At any rate, most people will tell you that the majority of places in Old Town are more touristy and have averagish food. If you are there anyway, it's one thing, but I wouldn't go there *for* any of the restaurants.
I'll put up Point Loma Seafood as a suggestion for lunch.
If you have a car, the Marisco's Pescador Truck in the Toys R Us parking lot, off the 5 south on Industrial Ave has excellent Baja fish tacos, seafood tostada's and other delights. Also, continuing south on the 5 off Palomar St, Marisco's Godoy has excellent marinated and grilled pulpo, great ceviehe and many other seafood offerings.
Maybe swap out Ota for Akinori? Been becoming a big fan of what Akinori is putting out (Aki is a former Sushi Ota chef).
Stone Brewery in Liberty Station
Pt. Loma Seafood
Tacos Al Paisa (close to the Coronado Bridge)
Marsicos Godoy or any of the Seven Seas/Mariscos German Trucks around town
Carnitas Snack Shack
Know that beginning June 8, the 4th largest County Fair in the USA (and largest in California) is in Del Mar. It is closed on June 10, 17 & 24(Mondays). Plan your driving time accordingly.
