Oscar’s Mexican Seafood – Hillcrest

Oscar’s Mexican Seafood – Hillcrest

Oscar’s Mexican Seafood has been on my list forever. I blame TJ Oyster Bar for being too damn good to pull me away for even one visit. One weekend I somehow convinced Anh to come with me and give Oscar’s a shot.

We tried our best to mimic what we normally get at TJ Oyster Bar. I tend to favor the fish ceviche.

One of the many reasons why I love TJ so much is their unabashed approach to what I call “lime drenching.” Yes their ceviche is super sour and I can’t get enough of it.…

TJ Oyster Bar – Otay Ranch, Chula Vista

TJ Oyster Bar – Otay Ranch, Chula Vista

20141007_122824

This post is LONG overdue.  But, better than never right!?  Luckily I live 10 minutes away from this newest TJ Oyster Bar located in the Otay Ranch community of Chula Vista.  The size of the new restaurant (#3) is perfect combination of the original and the larger sit down restaurant.

Of course they still have a signature bar area where you can sit, but all orders are taken from a counter once you come in.  The kitchen is nice and open where you can watch the action occur (although it’s not as intimate as the original location on Bonita Rd.).…

Rubio’s, the restaurant brand known for fish tacos, unique seafood dishes and a devotion to the ocean, is giving you the chance to come in and try its craveable menu options fresh from the grill. Rubio’s dedication to seafood cuisine began when Ralph Rubio and his father, Ray, opened the first Rubio’s in 1983 and started the fish taco phenomenon that spread across the nation.…

Casa de Reyes (Old Town)

Casa de Reyes (Old Town)

Went to Old Town on a weekend with my boyfriend, Lemon (alright, it’s just a nickname). Believe it or not, it’s my very fist time to Old Town after years of living in San Diego. It’s a really nice place to go visit and walk around on a weekend. I am definitely going back again for food and a museum visit. Anyway, my focus is not on Old Town, but the place we had lunch that day at Casa de Reyes on the corner of Fiesta de Reyes.


It has a large amount of outdoor seating, and I like that, since there aren’t many outdoor seating restaurants in this beautiful city which has year round perfect weather.…

TJ Oyster Bar (Re-visit) – San Diego

TJ Oyster Bar (Re-visit) – San Diego

So my sister and brother-in-law came to visit us over the Memorial Day weekend.  First stop was TJ Oyster Bar.  They loved it!

Anyhow, this will be a shorter post than usual, but I finally had a regular camera rather than my phone cam.  So, hopefully these pics will be a bit better.

Here are their famous 99 cents fish tacos.

The batter is seasoned perfectly.  However, you have to eat it here.  If you take it to go, it immediately gets soggy and the magic is lost.

Again the combination of the fish, cabbage, tomatoes, and cream sauce make this one of my favorite things to eat in ALL of San Diego.…

El Zarape – San Diego Mexican Seafood & Tacos

El Zarape – San Diego Mexican Seafood & Tacos

We discovered El Zarape a couple years ago and since then it’s become a local favorite.  Located right in the heart of Universtity Heights, this simple setup yields lines of loyal customers.  Their prices are super reasonable!  You can get a Lobster or Scallop burrito for $7… amazing.  But, let’s talk about the quality of their food.

The fish tacos at 99 cents is a steal!  Like any good fish taco, you’d be wise to eat it on site so you can experience the full crunch of the recently fried batter. …

Tabe BBQ

Tabe BBQ

Just went to Tabe BBQ for lunch. The place is pretty small and embedded inside a gas station mini mart. We tried the tacos…beef, pork, fish, and chicken. They were all respectably good, but not incredible in my opinion. Of the four, we liked the beef and pork. Best fish taco still goes to TJ Oyster Bar hands down.
