- Rubio’s – If all the sights of coastline in San Diego, California makes you crave for yummy fish tacos then head to Rubio’s. Locals revere this restaurant as the Godfather of Fish Tacos. Local Wally gave a lowdown on the popular entrée in this restaurant, “Get the two taco plate, one original fried taco and the other shrimp, and get ready for a life changing experience. Their other grilled fish tacos are equally delicious, my favorite being the Mango Habanero Grilled Mahi – it’s not as hot as it sounds. Locals with a smaller appetite know to order a taco a la carte but ask for it “in combo”, which adds beans and chips.” Read the continuation
- Michele Coulon Dessertier – If you have a sweet tooth, then this is definitely the food-tripping destination for you. USA Today’s 10 Best describes this La Jolla eatery as a sophisticated dessert place that should not be missed when visiting the San Diego CA area. “Michele Coulon takes no shortcuts. She uses nothing but top quality ingredients: local produce (organic whenever possible), the richest chocolate, the finest liqueurs, and real butter and cream. In truth, everything she makes is fantastic, but some popular examples are the Lemon Bavarian (light cake with Bavarian cream and lemon curd), banana cake and the Gianduia (dense bittersweet and milk chocolate torte with roasted hazelnuts). A brief but elegant lunch menu includes spinach salad with prosciutto and goat cheese, French onion soup, and a free-range pork salami sandwich on a baguette.” Read more
