San Diego Restaurant Reviews

Here we’ll give some info about our favorite restaurants in San Diego.

The Grass Skirt (Best Vibes / Atmosphere)

The Grass Skirt has some of the best vibes in all of San Diego, serving Southeast Asian cuisine and tiki-style cocktails. Just walking into this place takes the edge off. It’s the top of our list for first time visitors and anyone who hasn’t been before. You may struggle to find the entrance a bit, but the good folks at Good Time Poke next door should be able to help you out.

Favorite Dish: Grass Skirt Poke Bowl, Thai Crispy Rice Salad

Favorite Drink: Boozin’ Susan’s World Famous Chi Chi

El Paisa (Best Mexican Food)

This place is awesome, and they serve some fairly authentic Mexican dishes, including street-style tacos with lengua and cabeza. Si no comprende, look it up! They also have fuller tacos, burritos, tostadas, tortas, and much more. Furthermore, they honor Taco Tuesday featuring discounted tacos, which scores them some points. We love this spot and highly recommend it for people looking for casual Mexican food. There are also a number of other good Mexican food spots in walking distance that are worth checking out after you’ve tried out El Paisa.

Favorite Dish: Street tacos

Favorite Drink: Horchata
