We're on the road for a couple of weeks in sunny California. The weather's great and the food's terrific! We're looking forward to some fresh seafood and eventually our coveted reservation at The French Laundry (more on that later).
For now, our first stop is our favorite fish tacos place in San Diego: SOUTH BEACH BAR & GRILLE (5059 Newport Ave # 104). With Pacific Ocean views (it's right in Ocean Beach), cheap food, and over 20 beers on tap, South Beach is usually our first stop after we grab our rental car from the airport!
We love the fried Baja Fish taco for $2.95 and both the grilled Mahi and Wahoo tacos for $3.25 each. Also terrific is the Guacamole Bacon burger - a huge burger with tons of toppings. Happy hour from 3pm-6pm is even better with the Mahi taco at $2.50, appetizers at half price, and tons of drink specials.
Not really a place to impress your date, but this is definitely a fun, low-key place. Just remember your ID!
