The Promiscuous Fork’s commitment to their fellow foodies goes beyond their menu. They’ve created a comfortable, casual, non-pretentious feel to their restaurants. They want you to feel as if you were on vacation somewhere and walked in to the “local spot”.

The Promiscuous Fork has two locations in San Diego: in La Jolla on La Jolla Boulevard and in Pacific Beach on Ingraham Street. Both restaurants serve up a delicious menu of unique items you won’t find anywhere else. Our favorites include the Lamb Lollipops, the Mac ‘n’ Cheese With Asian-Braised Shredded Short Ribs, The Notorious P.I.G. Sandwich, and The Yuck Mouth Burger. They also offer an extensive menu of craft beer and wine to enjoy with your food.

Both locations are often busy, especially on nights and weekends so come hungry, but be prepared to potentially wait for a seat!

About Reza:

When Reza found himself lagging behind the rest on the high school track, he vowed never again to be at the back of the crowd.  He would sneak in extra hours of practice and, by his senior year, held the high school record for the 110 meters hurdles.  It is this type of dedication and perseverance that Reza brings to his clients.  A 22 year veteran of business ownership within the county of San Diego, he knows the hidden details of each community and the personalities that each neighborhood creates.  To Reza, real estate is a business based on trust, something that he builds through honest communication and responsiveness.  He embraces every new project with the understanding that it is a unique and personal experience, and dedicates his time to understand that uniqueness. He knows that purchasing or selling a home is not an everyday experience so he gently guides his clients through every step of the process.  A master of negotiations, he will guide you through understanding the realistic value of homes and wants you to feel that you have gained the best financial picture for your situation.
