In San Diego, right across the street from the convention center, there's a great little outdoor cafe called the Tin Fish. It's on a little tree-covered boulevard practically in the middle of the street just as you head into the Gaslamp District. You can smell the fish frying all day and I promise you, if you ever have one of their fish tacos, you'll be spoiled for life. The place is always busy and it takes a while to get through the line to order your food - so don't go if you're in a hurry. But it's served fresh and hot and well worth the wait if you do! It's a great spot to sit outside in the beautiful San Diego weather and enjoy great food (They do also have some tables indoors)
I'm lucky because there's A Tin Fish located here in Minneapolis too - There are also locations in other CA cities, WA, FL and IN - Try it, I know you'll like it!
Burgers, chicken, soups and of course seafood (fried or grilled options)
My Faves: Fried fish tacos and fish and chips
Note: This restaurant sits right in the shadow of PetCo Park, so if there's a Padres game it will be especially busy.
