San Diego's Award-Winning

Foodie bliss by the Forkful

Bring your curiosity and a big appetite

For food lovers, what you eat can be just as important as what you do on your vacation. San Diego's culinary community understands this passion and delivers. The culinary scene is much more than tacos and burritos, although those are delicious too. The city is full of imaginative fusions, authentic cuisine, trend-forward chefs, artisan creations and farm-fresh markets. From San Diego's signature Cali Baja cuisine, that utilizes locally sourced produce and seafood combined with spices from both sides of the border, to five-star French fine dining, casual comfort food and everything in between, San Diego's chefs are cooking up some of the best food found anywhere. That's probably why Travel & Leisure magazine has called San Diego one of "America's best cities for foodies." To wash it all down, try a locally bottled wine or one of San Diego's many handcrafted beers.
