San Diego sits at the south of California, with a proximity to the Mexican border that has undoubtedly had an integral influence on the culture of the county; namely its food, drink and that undeniably laid back vibe. There really is no other place like it; from Old Town to the vibrant newer pockets of the city, San Diego still proudly lays claims to its Hispanic roots.
It’s no surprise the food has been influenced by the county’s history. Burritos and tacos can be found on street corners, in sleek restaurants and at ball games, so you’ll always be reminded of the vibrant country to the south. The difference here is that you’ll discover the perfect blend of authentic Mexican food with the cool laidback ambience of California. Our tip is to find the most unassuming of places to eat; behind seemingly closed doors, expect to find the freshest Mexican-style fish tacos, carne asada and enchiladas. Don’t mind the rustic appearance, you’re probably about to tuck into the best Mexican food ever.
And what better accompaniment to tasty Mexican food than a cooling cocktail? This is another thing that San Diego does extremely well – it’s not all about craft beer, there is a booming cocktail culture, too. Head downtown for some of the best around. No need to wear a sombrero though, Cali cool is mixed here as expertly as the drinks, so you can soak up the vibrant city life in very chic locations.
San Diego; a beautiful fusion of California culture with a Mexican twist. It’s eclectic and buzzing, and we can’t get enough of it.
