New Yorker needs advice for the BEST food experience of SD

Las Cuatro Milpas in Barrio Logan is the most legit Mexican you can get in SD with out crossing the border which I would strongly encourage you to do if you have the time.

Ensenada, near Cruise Port: What's Not to be Missed?

For sure tacos El Fenix, they've been there for 42 years. Amazing. Their tacos de camaron are just as amazing as their tacos de pescado. I've had fish tacos throughout the peninsula and must say that these are some of my favorites. However, if you only have time for one stop La Guerrerense is the absolute must go.

Good coffee in San Diego?

Yeah, next time you're in the bay area you should check it out. It's the third largest in the state. Perhaps you were thinking of the awful one downtown that has subsequently closed. If you think LI is great you'd really appreciate the San Rafa. Civic Center Sunday. It's pretty incredible.

Good coffee in San Diego?

Thank you so much! I will be sure to check these out. I actually had recently thrown in the towel on finding a good fix in SD and ordered some Stumptown! Nice to know that there is still a light at the end of the tunnel. Also, thank you so much for your farmer's market advice. I'm also a big fan of the Saturday Little Italy mercado. It's no San Rafael civic center or Ferry Bldg, but it fills the void. Do you know of any place for good oysters? Hog Island style oyster bar is what I'm after.
Thanks again!

Good coffee in San Diego?

Again, just moved here from SF and am dying for a good cup of coffee. All my coffee paraphernalia (aka - press, chemex, pour over gear) is in storage b/c I'm in between places. Please, where can I find a cup of coffee that hasn't been sitting in an urn for 3 hours???? Four Barrel was my favorite in SF so anywhere that is even remotely close to them in quality would be so greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Natural wine in San Diego?

Help! I just moved to the area and am having a difficult time finding good wine. If any one out there could give me and ideas of where to find good, natural/"farm" wine in San Diego, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks
