My fiancé studied in China for 2 years and he rates this places as the most authentic Chinese experience in San Diego. Their dishes are all exceptionally tasty! Hand pulled noodles, fresh, craveworthy. Be prepared to try amazing flavor combinations and for potential splashes from the noodle dishes. You must try the Biang Biang noodles, Cumin Lamb with noodles, lotus roots and cucumber salad! A side of white rice is a great help so no flavor is left behind!

If you love Thai food, you’ll love this place. Authentic flavors, heat and modern ambiance and presentation. This place is known for their extreme spicy food, so if you’re not a fan of spicy, be sure to order everything “No spicy” or “mild” which still have a bit of a kick.

Super fun farmer’s market! LGBTQ+ hub of San Diego, so you can be sure you’ll be surrounded by love, positivity and great food and drinks! Taste as much as you can, I highly recommend SD Ginger Beer, Scratch BBQ, the Kenyan food, Thai coconut pancakes, and Majestic Garlic’s hummus, garlic spreads and pickled garlic. Have fun!

If you’re celebrating something special, you cannot leave San Diego without indulging in a piece of cake (and maybe even a glass of bubbly) from the amazing dessert heaven! Definitely call ahead to make a reservation because this place is definitely a popular spot, especially on weekends! If you’re a chocolate fan, try my favorite, the Viking. Yes, it’s that epic! Chocolate crème brulee and milk chocolate cremeuse are hidden between chocolate cake layers. Crushed chocolate almond pralines surround this dark and dense torte. Another delicious chocolate cake is the Truffe Framboise. Raspberry gelée layered between raspberry Darjeeling tea moistened chocolate cakes and bittersweet Valrhona Taïnori chocolate mousse. This gorgeous layer cake is finished with fresh raspberries on the top. And last but certainly not least, the Gianduia! It is truly a delight! Valrhona chocolate mousse and hazelnut buttercream are married with boysenberry preserves and Myers’s Rum moistened cake layers. Crushed pralines, chocolate ganache, and fresh boysenberries finish off this chocolate layered cake. What more could you want as a chocolate lover???

Sightseeing
The largest and most fun farmer’s market in San Diego! In the heart of the gorgeous Little Italy, you’ll be excited to walk around before and after you’ve walked through the market! Some of the best restaurants and dessert spots are located in Little Italy, so if you go, go with time to explore (and factor in parking time.. can be difficult)!

Beautiful gem in San Diego! So many incredible restaurants and bars. Live music and dancing during the week and weekends in the plaza area. It’s a great place to walk around in the afternoon or evening. Pop up to Kettner Exchange rooftop lounge for a cocktail or grab gelato and coffee at Pappalecco, you can do it all in Little Italy!

THE BEST NIGHTLIFE SPOT IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. Eat, drink and dance your heart out in the gaslamp quarter! It’s lined with incredible restaurants, (check out Havana 1920, Searsucker and Cafe21) bars (Havana 1920, Prohibition, Rustic Root, the Nolan), and nightclubs (Parq, Omnia, the Oxford Social Club). If you want a taste of the nightlife scene, make a dinner reservation at Havana 1920, have a Mojito with your meal, head over to the rooftop bar across the street, Rustic Root for another cocktail, and then peruse over to Omnia for some Vegas-vibes! Feel free to ask me about speakeasies and other cocktail bars, I have tons I can recommend to you! Some require reservations of at least a week, so plan ahead and let me know if you need help with that. I’d be happy to plan a nightlife itinerary for you and your group!
