local favorites

People visiting San Diego often seek me out to ask where they should eat. First of all, please allow me to say THANK YOU! I soo very much appreciate that you follow my food adventures and that you trust my opinions, it’s very endearing!

My brain works very categorically, so my first question back is usually “what do you want to eat?” My favorites will always be evolving, but every place included is without a doubt guaranteed for a good time!

I’d love your feedback, please comment here if you go to any places I suggest or tag me in your social media posts!
