San Diego has more than fifty cultural foods to choose from. A variety of restaurants means you’ll find exactly what you are looking for.

The following is a list of some restaurants you can choose from.

The Poseidon Restaurant

One thing San Diego is known for is its seafood. A good place to enjoy this type of food is the Poseidon Restaurant. With a great view of the beach, you can savor sahi that has been seared with sesame or clam chowder. Oven-roasted halibut with garlic mashed potatoes, red pepper coulis and sauteed spinach, and grilled Maine lobster with Asian vegetables are just a few of the dishes available at the Poseidon Restaurant. The fish tacos available during lunch are great too.

Cafe Socrates

For a Mediterranean experience, head to Cafe Socrates, where the food is both healthy and tasty. All dishes are served with sauce, bread, rice and salad.
