About

I moved to San Diego in August 2010 and I'm no restaurant critic - far from it - however I have decided to list out some of the good places I've eaten so that I can remember them! Back in Australia, when someone asked me what restaurants I'd recommend I kind of just go blank... I'd be lucky to think of more than three practical options, and even luckier if I could remember how to get there.  :-)

I've created this page to help me remember which restaurants I like and a quick reference I can load onto my mobile phone for quick access to the phone number and address of restaurants. Eating out makes a nice change from cooking and there are a LOT of good restaurants around San Diego!

Pizza
*****

Description: My housemate Will described them as the best pizza place in San Diego, the second being "California Pizza Kitchen (CPK)". It's a pretty small and basic looking place, but they do amazing "Chicago style" pizzas. Went with Vijay and ordered their biggest size (14") of Chicago style with half chicken and half a vegetarian and was blown away (was enough for three people). Be warned that the Chicago style pizza takes 45 mins to make!! CPK is also fantastic pizza - New York style only, but unique in that many of the pizzas are made with salad on top... very nice looking restaurant, always full of pizza.
