With San Diego just 30 or so minutes from the Mexican boarder, lots of locals will head down for a day of surfing or a night out with their SO. Heading south can be a little nerve-racking though if you aren’t familiar with the area. The friendly staff at the Pacific Inn, an affordable SAN airport hotel, has selected a few of the best restaurants south of the border if you plan to head down during your stay.
The Mongolian Grill
Price Range: $5 to $11
If you’ve never sampled Korean tacos or Thai chicken pizza, you’re in for a real treat when visiting this Asian restaurant in Rosarito. As an added bonus, most of the menu items are fairly healthy. The service is both responsive and friendly, and the owners are equally engaging.
La Casa Del Pescador
Price Range: $15 to $30
For a south of the border meal with variety, consider a stop here at La Casa Del Pescador in Puerto Nuevo. In addition to lobster and other seafood selections, you’ll discover appetizing chicken dishes and BBQ favorites. The gorgeous ocean view is ideal for sipping margaritas as the sun goes down.
Price Range: $11 to $30
Experience “Baja Med” cuisine, a tasty mix of Mexican flavors and spices, the way it’s supposed to be made at this popular Tijuana restaurant. Highly recommended selections include grilled scallops, duck and lamb tacos, and tuna Madagascar. Daily specials are on the blackboard menu. Don’t forget to check out the wine selections and the dessert menu, if you have any room left.
Price Range: $5 to $35
Both families and adults looking for a night on the town are welcome at this Tijuana restaurant. The drink selections are diverse and the staff is attentive. The background music is usually a mix of ’80s and ’90s favorites, but it’s not too distracting. Menu selections are especially diverse, ranging from European influences to good old-fashioned American-style hot dogs.
Mi Casa Supper Club
Price Range: $10 to $20
This Rosarito delight serves up international cuisine (primarily Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Moroccan) in a warm and cozy atmosphere. Plenty of attention is paid to every meal, and the martinis come with stuffed blue cheese olives on a Rosemary stick. The owners, Bo and Dennis, are known for putting on some memorable holiday parties and the staff takes the time to know your name.
