My Favorite Spots In San Diego

Spring Break is coming up and I know that my hometown is a huge vacation spot! Growing up in San Diego was amazing and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. There are so many amazing spots in SD, but of course I have my favorite places that tourists might not know about! So lets dive in.

My top five favorite restaurants in San Diego (in no particular order) are:

  1. Don Bravo 5504 La Jolla Blvd, La Jolla, CA 92037. This place has the most amazing tacos you will ever have.
  2. Pernicano’s Family Restaurant 1588 E Main St, El Cajon, CA 92021. I actually worked here all throughout high school and it is still the best pizza that I have ever had.
  3. Barbusa 1917 India St, San Diego, CA 92101. Barbusa’s carbonara is phenomenal. If you are in Little Italy you have to try it.
  4. Juicers 243 N Coast Highway 101, Solana Beach, CA 92075. Juicers is perfect for grabbing a acai bowl and then enjoying it on the beach. They also have the best smoothies in the world.
  5. Cheba Hut 4651 Mission Blvd, San Diego, CA 92109. Cheba Hut Toasted Subs is amazing! Their Kush Sub is my favorite.
  6. Hash House A Go Go . I am aware that this is number six, but the biscuits and gravy at Hash House are too good to not mention.
