One of my zen moments is when I find my way to the sushi bar at Azuki Sushi on a Monday—the perfect lunch.
Who doesn’t like Thai food? Might be a hole in a wall, but the food at Bahn Thai is outstanding. Don’t miss the yellow curry, drunken noodles, pad thai and tom ka soup!

Fish tacos with fresh, house made tortillas and a Yellowtail Tiradito for your sunny afternoon! Come by Old Town and treat yourself to San Diego's best Mexican seafood! 📸 by @pharrisonchef #CevicheHouse #SpecialtyProduce #CatalinaOffshoreProducts #TunaHarborDocksideMarket #OldTown
Ceviche House serves organic, fresh and local food in an inventive way. Let Chef Juan Carlos Récamier surprise you with his unique style! The San Diego and Gobernador Tostadas are must try.
Every day is perfect for tacos! My go-to place is Galaxy Taco where Chef Christine Rivera and Trey Foshee are truly honoring the tradition of Mexican food using the freshest ingredients to deliver boldly delicious flavors. Did I mention they grind their own masa daily from heirloom corn?
I am passionate about wine—that’s what drove me to get involved in the business. The Wine Pub in the Village of Point Loma is a cozy wine bar five minutes away from home. The charming owner is often behind the bar taking care of her customers. Take advantage of their retail wine shop and sign up for an amazing travel experience to Valle de Guadalupe!
Time to escape to Baja! First, you must stop in Ensenada for a seafood tostada at La Guerrerense street cart. Then, head to Valle and discover a hidden gem: TrasLomita at Lomita Winery by Chef Sheyla Alvarado. The atmosphere is magical, the food is out of this world and the estate wines are simply delicious!
Stay, eat and drink at Bruma in Valle de Guadalupe, a glorious B&B, winery and restaurant designed by acclaimed architect Alejandro D’Acosta. Taste the experimental menu at Fauna, the outstanding restaurant by rising star Chef David Castro Hussong.
