Theme Day - What SD is known for

It is theme day for the Daily Photo blogs and this month's theme is "what your city is known for". I try to do a food theme every Friday as well and San Diego is known for its Mexican food. Don't you just miss it so? Here is the surf and turf burrito from JV's Mexican Food. Yes, those shrimps are as big as a quarter and the carne asada was delicious too. The whole thing weighed about 4 pounds and cost around $7.00. On the plate is about 1/4 of the whole burrito. P.S.: JV's salsa isn't for babies. More cities highlighting what their city is known for:

There is a superb Billy Connoly routine about mexican food restaurants - no problem with the menu, all they need to do is fold it a different way. One day I'd really like to tast the genuine article.

San Diego has great food, yes, a great embarcadero and Gaslamp Quarter quarter. A beautiful place to live.

Happy theme day! :)

When I lived in Del Mar a long time ago, I had a favorite fish taco place I always went to--a Mexican shacky kind of place. Happy Theme Day!

To me, when San Diego is mentioned, I think of the sun. But I can be swayed and the next time I visit I will make it a point to focus on the Mexican food.

JV's is one of my favorite taco shops. Their surf n' turf burrito is huge. I remember when it was around $4, and some of my friends used to try to eat the whole thing and then get a donut next door for dessert!

This wasn't the first thing I thought of when I thought San Diego, but a close second. (After Shamu!) I have had some macho nachos at Freddies in Old Town and they were GOOD!

Yum...Mexican food is one of my favorites! I find that a lot of the things I love about my city revolve around food, too.
