Best Burgers in NYC.................

Korzo Haus in East Village has my heart. Fried bun, beet ketchup, unpretentious and not even hyped up.

Late Night Eats

it was just an overall general statement regarding the prevelance of seafood offered in the two cities. san diego is all about fish tacos and (let's say) fish sandwiches in fish markets whereas san francisco's culinary focus isn't. san franciscans could give two shits about bread bowl clam chowders.

as far as recommendations, i just moved here (4 months ago) but it seems like the appropriate responses are:

south coast for fish tacos -- i live in ob. makes sense. they're good and i take my guests from out of town here.

el pescador - i like it and i work in la jolla, but this just isn't memorable. who really cares about this place?

and from what it looks like kaito sushi -- i've never been and can't afford to, but i feel that one super great sushi restaurant in a region with subpar sushi usually isn't as special as a super good sushi restaurant in a region with super good sushi restaurants. i'm not a sushi snob at all, but i don't like the crappy stuff either.

mariscos german? - yet to go, but how exciting can really great fish tacos be in a region filled with really great fish tacos?

i'm just saying don't waste your waistline eating seafood in san francisco; no one cares about it there.

Good Indian Restaurant in San Diego

sorry, i'm still new to the city, so i was only speculating. so where do they all go out then?
where are they all eating at?

maybe the indian isn't good here so they just cook at home? given price, food and everything, i give pt a 4 at best. it works, but i'll never crave it and don't get excited at the thought of eating there. i did enjoy sfm a lot, but again i just didn't get a boner over it.

if there's anywhere else i should try, please let me know. i'm getting desperate.

photos attached. won't say which dish belongs to which restaurant, but one looks better (more flavorful, complex) than the other.

i had the chicken vindaloo and spinach paneer thing. i usually like my food super duper spicy and when i order it that way (at other places) it usually still retains (or ampilfies in flavor).

i ordered it super spicy here and it was all heat. i'm not authority on what's authentic, but i just moved here from san francisco and still haven't found anything as awesome as LAHORE KARAHI

not sure what's more authentic, but lahore karahi is like you're straight up eating in the dude's kitchen. i've also lived in detroit and la, where there were more options.

maybe there's just not enough south asians (or indian restaurants) to keep the food honest? either way, i'm thankful for the mexican food and santouka here, both of which i really love. that's about all i can say.

i agree. punjabi tandoor was a major letdown for me. rode my scooter 45 minutes on a cold night for some vindaloo and was severely let down by the entire meal. not that cheap, either?

i do like surati but again, it doesn't give me that "to die for, oh shit i ate too much" level of satisfaction. unfortunately, i'm just going to have to write off indian food as long as i live in sd.

best (affordable) ceviche

thanks for the welcome. i've been cruising the forums but decided it was time to reach out for suggestions.

i haven't had much ceviche outside of the ocean beach farmers market (since i live there) but i was just wondering if there were any specific (or solid) places i should try. i'm always willing to drive for food. by affordable, i mean that i don't really care for fancy restaurants.
