If you’re in the La Jolla area and craving some delicious sushi, Del Sushi caters to busy people on the go! They provide take out or delivery service to the UTC area and do not have restaurant service.
The Del Sushi menu includes everything from traditional rolls to baked rolls to soup and even side dishes. The sushi is always freshly made and is priced very cheaply compared to sushi restaurants in the area. Our personal favorite menu item is the Baked Salmon Roll with edamame on the side.
Del Sushi is located across the street from the UCSD campus, near the shops at Villa La Jolla and Nobel.

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!

Vietnamese Pho is a popular dish in Southern California and Pho Duyen Mai offers some of the most authentic and best tasting Pho in San Diego! They have an expansive menu which features different type of Pho, Bahn Mi sandwiches, noodle dishes, egg rolls, spring rolls, and more! Our favorite items were the Surf and Turf Spring Rolls, the Pho Dac Biet, House Special Pho, and the Nem Nuong.
All of the menu items are of excellent quality and taste very fresh. While it may seem like Pho Duyen Mai is just another hole-in-the-wall restaurant in the Convoy area, the elegant atmosphere elevates it above being just a casual eatery. Yet the prices are fair and affordable so you don’t need to relegate dining at Pho Duyen Mai to just a special occasion!
Like many places in the Convoy area, parking can be tricky so give yourself plenty of time to find a space, especially if you’re going on the weekend or around dinnertime. They are open from 9am-9am every day of the week.

New to the San Diego community, Mendocino Farms is quickly becoming a local favorite! Occupying the old space vacated by Carnitas Snack Shack at the Del Mar Highlands, Mendocino Farms offers a fresh and flavorful menu using local ingredients.
They are known for their sandwiches, though they also serve salads and even vegan options! Everything on the menu is filling and bursting with flavor, but we particularly enjoyed the Save Drake’s Farm Salad and the Steak BLT. They also offer weekly specials, so if you become a regular at Mendocino Farms, you’ll never get bored of the menu!
If you try to go to Mendocino Farms during lunchtime, be prepared to wait as this restaurant, like almost every eatery at the Highlands, gets quite busy during lunch. Luckily it’s located near the new parking garage so finding a spot is usually not difficult!
Mendocino Farms also has another location in La Jolla.

Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza and Grill serves up classic American and Italian-inspired pizzas and grilled entrees! Their menu is extensive, with options ranging from sandwiches and steaks to burgers and even tacos, but their specialty is their pizza. Every pizza is handcrafted with fresh and delicious ingredients and baked in a woodfire grill. Their pizzas are thin crust and crisped to perfection. Available toppings range from the classics like Pepperoni, Meat lovers, and Hawaiian to their own specialty concoctions.
Located on the upper level of the Del Mar Highlands, Sammy’s offer daily lunch specials, happy hour deals, and even a catering menu. If you are in the mood for high quality and fresh pizza, definitely stop by Sammy’s!
