"No dish says more about Nine-Ten Restaurant than its Jamaican jerk pork belly appetizer. This centerpiece pays homage to Executive Chef Jason Knibb’s Jamaican heritage, albeit in elevated form, and the pairing with baby carrots, swiss chard, plantains, and black-eyed peas with sweet potato purée gives it a California feel. It’s a variation on a theme repeated throughout the menu: flavor combinations that make sense, offered in surprising and refined ways."
"Located in the Grande Colonial Hotel on (910) Prospect Street, NINE-TEN is definitely one of the best restaurants in La Jolla for a menu determined by what is in season while still keeping some guest favorites on the menu. It’s perfect for a night out, whether it’s a celebration or just date night. The veteran Executive Chef, Jason Knibb, has been at the helm for the past decade and trained under highly-respected names like Wolfgang Puck."
"Then 9 out of ten chances are you are going to love the Nine-Ten restaurant. To start off, their wine list is one of their best features, and if on a budget, you can visit on Wednesdays when they have half price on selected bottles. Run by Jason Knibb who has worked in the restaurant industry in many countries, the restaurant will deliver the best three and four-course meals in La Jolla."

2550 Fifth Ave 12th floor, San Diego, CA 92103, USA
"Is it a coincidence that celebrating marriage proposals, wedding anniversaries and Valentine’s Day in this swoon-inducing setting is practically the law in San Diego?. If you have to ask, you’ve never sat at tables 50 or 52, where your view of the city skyline and landing planes makes you feel up in the clouds."
"Or rooftop restaurant I should say because Mister A’s is more a restaurant than a bar. Mister A’s has more of a classy, fine dining atmosphere. It’s perfect for date night and if you are looking for a restaurant with a view this is definitely the place to be."
"Visit Bertrand at Mister A’s primarily for the panoramic view of Hillcrest, Midtown, and Downtown. Sip your drink and become one with the city of San Diego. They serve lip-smacking American cuisine with French and Mediterranean influence."

Inventive mix of surf, turf & pub grub in simple, wood-paneled digs or on the oceanfront patio.
"People say that this is one of the best breakfast spots in San Diego, and with the ocean view and really good food, I have to agree!. The breakfast menu has traditional favorites, plus a lobster benedict, a prime rib hash, and an epic berry french toast that looks sooooo good!. Located in Pacific Beach."
"They have four different locations each week, including North Park and Hillcrest Farmers’ Market. It’s worth making the effort to figure out their schedule, considering the rich selection of vegan burritos, burgers, wraps, and bowls. All of their dishes are made to order, so it’s up to you to choose your favorite seasonings."

Beach-themed chain known for Baja-style fish tacos & Mexican-inspired seafood entrees.
NEX North Island Building 2017, Coronado, CA 92135, USA
"Of course I could not forget Rubio's, the Godfather of the Fish Taco. It was Ralph Rubio who while visiting Ensenada ate his first fish taco and from that came a vision of fish tacos everywhere. And while today everyone seems to have a fish taco on their menu it wasn’t that long ago that the idea of fish - in a taco - would elicit “ewwwwws” and “no way, dude”."
"Look no further than to Spoiled Vegans Cafe for a hearty sandwich or rich sausages wrapped in waffles that are vegan and cruelty free. This eatery, which was founded by co-owners Todd Anderson and Samantha Aaron, serves as a perfect brunch option during the weekends. “We want to use Spoiled Vegans to break barriers,” Anderson said."

Chain pizzeria serving oven-fired pies made with a diverse range of sauces, cheeses & toppings.
"Just north of the better known Sichuan Province sits Shaanxi Province (not to be confused with the neighboring Shanxi Province), known for the Terracotta Army, the Hukou Waterfall and biang biang noodles, which is famously the most complex Chinese character, having 57 strokes. Long, broad, and chewy, the hand-ripped noodles are smothered in a ground chili and soy-based sauce. Other menu standouts include the Yang Rou Pao Mo, a savory lamb soup studded with cubes of dense bread that take on a dumpling-like consistency after they’ve soaked up the broth, and tofu pidan, a simple, inexpensive dish of silken tofu, a thousand-year-old egg, minced garlic, spring onion drizzled with soy sauce, and Chinese vinegar."
"For truly authentic Chinese food, place your order at this Kearny Mesa hot spot. Try the Biang Biang noodles, which are extra wide handmade noodles that are served in a spicy sauce and are so delicious on their own that they need no meat or veggies to accompany them."
"Whether you enjoy spotting ghosts and apparitions or have an interest in historic places, the Whaley House is a definite tourist pleaser. The lovely brick two-story structure was built in 1857 by the original owner Thomas Whaley. Its historical significance lies in the many different roles the home played for the community."
"San Diego’s first two-storey brick-built building, the Old Town’s Whaley House dates to 1857. What kindles fascination about the building is its spooky goings-on. This National Historic Landmark was designated “haunted” by the U.S."
"With its unassuming yellow paint and perfectly square foundation, the William Heath Davis House bears the distinct honor of being the oldest building in San Diego. Erected in 1850, this historic saltbox-style home now serves as a museum, transporting everyone who steps through its doors back in time to the Victorian era of yore. While it once was the home of one of our earliest settlers, William Heath Davis himself, it now affords its visitors a glimpse into our past."
"Built by William Heath Davis in 1850, many fascinating people, including Alonzo Horton, have called the William Heath Davis House 'home.' You'll get to tour the home, and its decorated rooms - each representing different eras in the life of the house and its various former (and rumored ghostly current) inhabitants. Getting in: William Heath Davis House tickets are included on the Go San Diego Card All-Inclusive Pass."
"Yes, we’re talking about that Leo Carillo, who acted in nearly 100 movies between 1927 and 1950. Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park is a small part of his former working rancho and vacation retreat. Kids love the resident peacocks, but there are also multiple historic properties, including the visitors’ center, adobe buildings, a barn, and more."
"History meets adventure at Leo Carrillo Ranch Historical Park. This space, a fully functioning ranch named Rancho de Los Kiotes, is now a 27-acre (11-ha) manicured paradise, one that boasts aesthetic beauty and educational value. Much of the ranch is perfectly preserved history, amidst a mystifying natural landscape."
