Spitz San Diego – Mediterranean Street Food


Who say’s you can’t eat and play at the same time?

Spitz Mediterranean Street Food recently made a splash into San Diego with a focus on tasty food and fun.  With four L.A. based locations, Spitz has since expanded south to sunny San Diego in the Hillcrest area.


The location is right on 5th Ave. and we luckily found parking quickly.


As their name would suggest, Spitz serves several main entrees based off their döner meat (choice of beef & lamb, chicken, or mixed meat).

They sent us a gift card, so we decided to try out several things this day.


The inside is nice and casual.  They have a lot of fun art and playful colors popping throughout.


The fun continues directly outside in the back area which is a sizable beer garden surrounded by lawn games like, corn hole, a giant jenga, and ladder toss.


Lots of green turf to sprawl out on and get your game on.


But before we got to the games, our food came.


This was the Street Car Döner with chicken.  It’s accompanied with garlic, fried lavash chips, romaine cabbage, onion, cucumber, & tzatziki sauce.


Since we had Darren, Jorgina, and the kiddos, we got another Street Car Döner with beef & lamb.

Both were similar in flavors and the chicken was only slightly less seasoned.  But, both packed in a good punch of flavor and texture into each bite.

As you can see we got it as a wrap, but you’re also able to get it as a sandwich too.


We also got an order of Döquitos with beef & lamb.  It’s their version of a taquito… and more accurately a “flauta” in my opinion.  It’s rolled with their lavash bread, zesty feta, onion and aioli, fried and topped with feta, aioli, onion, pepperoncinis (not pictured), fried pita, and hummus.

This was definitely tasty, but maybe not so healthy!  🙂  We made a pretty good dent into it regardless.


And since we were already eating healthy consciously, we opted for the Street Cart Fries as well… feeling a bit sluggish now.


Here are all the accompaniments we got on the side (Darren is less picky than most of us…heh).


After lunch we started to checkout the play area with the kids.

I think they WON!  Well, at least that’s what they told me.

All in all, this was a very fun place to have lunch with the kids.  For the adults they also have a nice craft beer selection that seemed popular.

We’ll definitely be back again when we need a quick, fun, and tasty lunch!

    1. Don’t worry, it’s not too complicated… you just need to ask yourself one question – dip, or not? 😉

      I do love a fatty taquito too!
