Discover San Diego
San Diego, California, is home to restaurants that serve classic foods as well as local flavors. There's the iconic double bacon cheeseburger served with fries and a drink. Another local favorite is the carne asada fries available at local taco shops. While you're at a taco shop, you might also try the California burrito, which features the same carne asada fries wrapped up in a tortilla. If you are in the mood for a rich breakfast, you should try tiramisu pancakes, which were voted the best pancakes in San Diego. Those who like Indian food can find dishes like phanaeng curry with a side of rice. You can also visit places serving garlic naan, an Indian bread that goes well with curry.
