Convoy District

Revved Up San Diego Culture

When it comes to the Convoy District, the culture is the cuisine and the cuisine is the culture. This vibrant district is filled with an eclectic array of Asian culinary gems, a vibrant nightlife, creative cocktails and one-of-a-kind Karaoke.

The Flavors of Asia

From Korean BBQ to ramen to sushi and beyond, Convoy is known for its wide selection of authentic Asian food offerings. If you're hankering for ramen, head over to Menya Ultra for made-from-scratch noodles. Food critic Andrew Zimmern heralded the place as possibly having the best ramen in the country. Want to make your own Asian delicacies? A shopping trip Zion Market should be on your schedule. To double your fun, head over to the Dumpling Inn for a drink at its Shanghai Saloon and then a hearty helping of its famed xiao long bao, which are broth-filled steamed pork dumplings. Of course, you'll want to make room for dessert as Convoy is home to many over-the-top dessert destinations like Iceskimo, which offers Taiwanese shaved snow creations that are almost too pretty to eat, and Bing Haus, which specializes in Thai-styled rolled ice cream. It's almost as fun to watch it get made as it is to eat it – emphasis on almost.

Sing Along

You can sing it loud and sing it proud at any number of Karaoke bars in the Convoy District. Min Sok Chon offers Korean fusion food, Karaoke booths and a fun, casual vibe. If you are looking for a more upscale scene to sing your lungs out, Melody Karaoke might be music to your ears. It has opulent and mirrored private rooms of varying sizes and colorful cocktails to help unleash your inhibitions before you hit the mic. 

Get Crafty

Convoy is also a center for craft beer and cocktails. Common Theory Public House features an amazing chef (Jonathan Bautista, formerly the chef de cuisine at George's at the Cove) and an extensive craft beer list. Common Theory is also home to one of San Diego's newest and best speakeasies, Realm of the 52 Remedies. The décor, with its grand gilt bar surrounded by a mix of Asian and Tiki accents, is matched only by its sumptuous cocktail concoctions. Another great place to get your craft cocktail fix is at the Crab Hut, a local restaurant that offers Southern-style seafood boils in addition to its full bar. The secret to its success is its bar director David Tye, who has the distinction of winning the Del Mar Fair's Distilled Cocktail competition, not just once but twice.
