South Indian Food - Mangalorean/Goan Restaurants????

We will be visiting San Diego and are hoping to find a South Indian restaurant specializing in Mangalorean/Goan cuisine. Specifically hoping to find Fish Fry... does anyone have any suggestions?? Thanks!

  1. This is kind of an odd request for a city on the Mexican border and one not terribly well known for the quality of it's Indian cuisine, let alone specialty Indian cuisine.

    Is there any particular reason why you're trying to seek Mangalorean/Goan cuisine in San Diego, CA?

    1. I don't live in San Diego, so I'm not sure if there are any places that will match what you're looking for. However, I think it's a great question, and I too would love to know if there's any specialty Indian food in the SD area.

      I sort of doubt this is what you are wanting, but on the menu for Monsoon restaurant (729 4th Ave in San Diego) there's an item called Goa Fish, described as "Mahi cooked in a spiced ginger curry, this a very fragrant and rich sauce." So, not a fish fry, but could be interesting?

      1. DiningDiva, my boyfriend is from that region and while San Diego isn't known for specialty Indian food, we are hoping to find something.

        Dave, thanks a ton for the suggestion.... we'll have to check it out and see if that's what my bf had in mind! I'll let you know if I hear of any other places.

          Good luck :-)

          I'm not sure you'll find much, but it certainly never hurts to ask
