In San Diego, right across the street from the convention center, there’s a great little outdoor cafe called the Tin Fish. It’s on a little tree-covered boulevard practically in the middle of the street just as you head into the Gaslamp District. You can smell the fish frying all day and I promise you, if you ever have one of their fish tacos, you’ll be spoiled for life. The place is always busy and it takes a while to get through the line to order your food – so don’t go if you’re in a hurry. But it’s served fresh and hot and well worth the wait if you do! It’s a great spot to sit outside in the beautiful San Diego weather and enjoy great food (They do also have some tables indoors)
There are also locations in other CA cities, WA, FL and IN – Try it, I know you’ll like it!
Seafood (fried or grilled options), burgers, chicken, soups
My Faves: Fried fish tacos and fish and chips
Note: This restaurant sits right in the shadow of PetCo Park, so if there’s a Padres game it will be especially busy.
