SoCal Travels: Pacific Beach


A few weekends back Paul and I visited Pacific Beach! As a part of our goal of getting to know San Diego better Pacific Beach was a key neighborhood we were excited to explore. Since we had visited Ocean Beach a few weeks ago we were excited to compare the two. PB was a quick 15-minute drive north and the perfect spot for a day trip. It was crowded, but not overwhelmingly so, which made sense considering it was 80s and the warmest it had been in weeks. Check out some favorite picks below:

K&P Picks:

Oscar’s Mexican Grill for fish tacos.
Sushi Ota for Sushi…obvs.
The Mission for brunch. We went to their other location in East Village and it has been (by far) my favorite breakfast place in San Diego. Everything is lovely both sweet and savory and they are super veg-friendly!
Crushed for tapas and drinks.
The Fishery sit-down seafood and fish market- get place to grab some oysters to-go.
Baked Bear for thoes of you (like me) who would rather have dessert than dinner.

If you are ever in the area and you love fish tacos (if you don’t…who are you?) at least check out Oscar’s. There will probably be a line and the interior is cramped with a barely working fan, but it’s definitely worth it!
