BREAKFAST CITY GUIDE DINNER EAT REVIEWS SAN DIEGO

Pick 3 | San Diego Restaurant Recommendations

This blog post is inspired by all of the people who have reached out to me for foodie recommendations, when planning a trip to San Diego. Thank you for trusting my tastebuds! You are in good hands my friend! Even though I still have every intention to consistently post restaurant reviews on this platform, until then I’ve decided to compile a list of my top 3 (current) favorite places + meal recommendations. Believe me, this was hard to narrow down… we’ve got so many great options here!

Additionally, per popular request, below you will find Alex’s picks (not-vegan) as well as our collective picks! As a vegan/non-vegan couple, these are the places that we happily dine at together with no compromises needed!
