"You might think of San Diego as a surfer's paradise, but it's a foodie heaven as well. The city has many diverse food neighborhoods (Little Italy, Barrio Logan, the Convoy, etc.), it gives New York a run for it's money. Much like Los Angeles, you can drive all around the city seeking out foodie destinations or stick to one or two neighborhoods and eat your way down city block. And don't just think it's all about Mexican and Cal-Mex food...You can also get amazing New American at Juniper and Ivy."
