    Hey Mikey, how 'bout you do hot pot in San Diego? I've got tacos covered. But where do I go for good AYCE hot pot or Korean?

    Dude... next time you are heading to San Diego, let me know and we'll cruise around for tacos or burritos. Did you try the beef tongue or tripe at El gordo?

    Mikey, Oscar’s is so expensive! Next time you’re in SD and want Mexican here are my suggestions:
    Tex Mex
    - Maritza’s! (My mom’s absolute favorite. She just has to say hello and they know what to bring out)
    Popular spots
    - La Cuatra Milpas
    - Lolita’s
    - Lucha Libre
    - Tacos el Gordo (is a bit too popular if you ask me but definitely good)
    Fish tacos
    - Kiko’s (there are two and they’re differently owned)
    - Mariscos Pescador
    - TJ Oyster Bar
    - basically any fish taco truck is solid and also affordable for even college students
    - La Fachada (overall really good)
    - Las Michoacanas (carnitas is best)
    - tacos el Poblano (carne asada, but a bit of a drive for you)
    - Aqui es Texcoco (lamb, but long drive. Andrew Zimmern ate here!)
    - Tortas Ahogadas
    - Tacos el Panson (cabeza)
    - Tacos Revolucion (overall solid, chicken is surprisingly good)
    -Don Vicente (menudo and pozole!!! My favorite :)
    I have other places in mind, but this is already probably too much

    This guy gives me the creeps with his phoniness. Anyone who is that pathologically cheap when making money making shitty RUclip videos such as this awful one with no thought put into it at all is most definitely a douche. You didn’t go anywhere near any of the best tacos in San Diego and your personality is disturbing.

    Hey Mikey, let me turn you on to the worst kept secret in San Diego - Ocean Beach Pier Cafe. They have a lobster taco that has won award after award. They have a breakfast menu that is about twice the size of your head, and really tasty. The price on the lobster taco has gone way way up lately but it's still great. You *do* want to stop by, and there are lots of local foods nearby. I usually stay at when I go there, but tbh, it's not a great hotel. Just trying to give you another compass point. Check it out, you won't regret it.

    I recommend the carne asada taco at La Mesita in La Mesa and the fish tacos from El Pollo Grill in Lemon Grove. There, the fish tacos are grilled and so good.

    I lived in San Diego in late 70's and I still remember and dream of a fish sandwich we would go eat. It was out on Point Loma in the harbor. A seafood shack. They had everything fresh out of ocean there and they even would cook up some stuff. Long lines. But they would fry up a fish fillet and put it on the best sourdough bread you ever had. And their tartar sauce was so different. Oh man what I would give to have another. Best Tacos in San Diego were always down in Chula Vista or National City. Rolled tac's with guacamole. Oh Man
