  • Old Town Variety

    by CDNgirl Updated Mar 22, 2006

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tough to pick a single favorite restaurant, just about anything in Old Town has great food and neat atmosphere, touristy shops and historical stops are all in the 8 or 10 block area. Good variety of food; italian, mexican etc. price is average.

    East Buffet: The biggest buffet of San Diego

    by spartan Updated Apr 26, 2005

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    They took over the closed down Acapulco Restaurant and turned into a gastronomic feast. So many choices, so little time...the place is huge and it was packed for lunch, so that should tell you something about the food and the quality. There are soups, salads, many entrees, a mongolian bbq and dessert (e.g., cookies, cakes and ice cream).

    Favorite Dish: I had a combination of Sauteed Green Beans, Mushrooms, Seafood Combination (crab, shrimp and scallops in a buttery garlic sauce), Fried Rice and Orange Chicken along with a Coke.

    Churro buggy at San Diego Zoo: Churros, anyone?

    by b1bob Updated Apr 2, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: On seeing the churro buggy, (for those from Roxboro, North Carolina, churros are rods of fried dough sprinkled liberally with cinnamon sugar), I couldn't resist. I don't know why I didn't go after churros at Qualcomm Park the previous Tuesday night. The rest of the lot opted for ice cream bars.

    various San Diego restaurants: Typical Great California Food!

    by maryellen50 Written Feb 11, 2004

    After living in California for six years, being a vegetarian and now living in Texas, I can truthfully say that the food on the West Coast is far superior to anything found in Texas. People in California just appreciate good food. When dining anywhere in California, I have never had a problem finding a vegetarian entree on any menu...being in Texas is a different (and challenging) story where you have to ask for substitutions. So I doubt whereever one would go, you would not have a good selection of food whatever the type. This is one of the many things I miss about living on the West Coast.

    About Polish food: Polish food in San Diego?

    by matcrazy1 Updated Sep 21, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I didn't find any polish food in San Diego but i was very, very touched when I notice what about my friend Linda was reading: The self-sufficient cooking of the country: POLAND.
    WOW! I didn't know that Polish cuisine is world known hehe.

    From ciotog from San Diego:
    I noted you said there weren't any Polish restaurants in San Diego. There are 2 that I know is called Stella's Hideaway on the north side of San Diego.
    The other is just north of downtown on 5th Av. called the Cottage Cafe.
    Also check out this web site: Local Wally's San Diego Tourist Guide

    Thank you very much for your info. It's a real pity I didn't find them when I was there :-(((.

    Favorite Dish: I would choose: Polish pierogi (with meat and sauerkraut) and Polish military pea soup (grochowka).

    At Linda's book :-)

    Baleen at Paradise Point Resort: Pampered at Lunchtime

    by Bwana_Brown Updated Jul 14, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Part of the conference fee included our meals at the Paradise Point Resort. Our lunches were served outdoors by the resort staff, next to their Baleen Restaurant. It was a prepared menu in both cases, consisting of a salad, main course of steak or chicken and then dessert. It was all very tastefully done and the dishes were brought to the tables without us having to lift a finger (except for the odd dive-bombing seagull!). We did have breakfast and an evening meal at the Baleen on a couple of occasions and found that these meals were not cheap (US$18 for a typical ham and egg breakfast!).

    Harry's Coffee Shop: Great breakfast!

    by bruingirl Updated Jan 25, 2003

    Great local breakfast place in La Jolla. Nothing too special in terms of ambience or decor. What you will get though is great service and amazing food for a reasonable price. Great breakfast grub!

    Favorite Dish: Pancakes, name it! I love breakfast food! The only thing I wouldn't recommend is probably their biscuits and gravy. Not all that great.

    Here in Little Italy we had some great pizza that was reasonable in price. The service and atmosphere were good.
    Little Italy has a small area with quite a few Italian restaurants all in one place. We tried the place in the photograph near the big sign over the street.

    Favorite Dish: Pizza! We tried three different kinds of pizza and they were all good.

    We ate in SeaWorld at a place...

    by KikBkK8 Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We ate in SeaWorld at a place which serves BBQ chicken
    and ribs. They also had hot dogs and other items like
    fruit salad and baked beans, and really good lemonade!
    There was indoor and outdoor dining, and the patio was a
    bit windy that day, but the surrounding view of the park
    and it's beautiful plants and trees made it easy to put up
    with a gust trying to carry away our napkins once in awhile.

    Favorite Dish: Their chocolate cake with chocolate fudge frosting was to die for! I recommend sharing a piece with a friend!

    We found the Hillcrest neighborhood to have a great variety of ethnic restaurants, all at a reasonable price.
