North America

You can’t visit San Diego without trying the delicious Mexican food the city is famous for, but that doesn’t also mean America’s Finest City doesn’t know how to serve up delicious foods of other varieties. Here are some San Diego eateries that you just can’t miss.


George’s At The Cove

George’s regularly tops many of the city’s “Best Of” lists thanks to terrific service and spectacular views on top of some of the best seafood the city has to offer. Be adventurous and try the grilled octopus appetizer, a local favorite. George’s is the perfect spot for a romantic sunset dinner on the Ja Lolla Shores.



Upscale food in a casual atmosphere in the popular Gaslamp district makes Searsucker shine. The menu changes daily, but the duck fat fries and pork butt always please the crowd.


Extraordinary Desserts

You’ll come out a few pounds heavier, but it’ll be worth the extra hours in the gym once you try the sweets available here. Extraordinary Desserts is the go-to dessert place in San Diego, thanks to the beautiful displays and endless array of delicious treats. Personal recommendations typically include the blood orange ricotta cake and their individual-sized cheesecakes.


El Zarape

You can’t go to California without trying a California burrito and El Zarape is the place to find them. Authentic Mexican food abounds in this charming hole-in-the-wall that locals flock to in order to fill their burrito cravings. The lobster burrito and carne asada are fantastic, but don’t let the $1 fish tacos suck you in. There’s another spot for those.


Mariscos El Prieto

That spot is a little food truck tucked away in Chula Vista called Mariscos El Prieto. Affordable, fresh and San Diego’s best kept secret, El Prieto serves up some of the best Mexican seafood dishes in the city. Ignore the places with more Yelp reviews and get your fish tacos here. You won’t regret it.
