Best All You Can Eats in San Diego! Part 2


Part two of the list my friends! If you haven’t already, please go back to read part one.

3. Little Sakana

This list would obviously not be complete without an all you can eat sushi joint! Unfortunately we do not have too many options here in San Diego, but the freshest and best that I know of is Little Sakana in Mira Mesa. Besides your typical salmon, tuna and eel nigiri, they have a number of tasty rolls (some riceless!) as well as other fun items that include crab rangoons (I am so addicted to these) udon noodles, teriyaki chicken, miso soup, gyoza, fried rice, and salads. They also do baked rolls and deep fried rolls too. They have a few premium items such as various fish bellies and carpaccio as well. Little Sakana also ha BANGIN alcoholic drinks- you can get a twisted Thai Tea here, which is like a regular Thai tea but with rum! They also have some alcoholic yakult drinks! All in all, if you’re looking for quality sushi and premium items, Little Sakana is your place.

4. 100’s Seafood Buffet

Now up to this point, I have not mentioned any places that are buffets. I’m typically pretty wary of buffets- I’m reminded of going to ‘Chinese’ buffets when I was younger, where the food wasn’t fresh and was often incredibly greasy. HOWEVER. 100’s Seafood Buffet is one of the ONLY seafood buffets in San Diego I will vouch for.

100’s buffet serves a combination of your typical Chinese food and fresh seafood. You’ll find cocktail shrimp, crab legs, and lobster on lobster nights! They also typically serve some sort of fish dish and sometimes crawfish. They also have a fresh sashimi and sushi section- yes, you heard me right, they serve SASHIMI (just the raw cut fish without any rice!). I typically come here when I’m craving hella salmon and want to load a plate with pure fish (no other AYCE joint in SD serves sashimi, only nigiri!) You will of course find some soups, fried rice, chicken and beef dishes, as well as a hibachi section (the section where the chef freshly cooks whatever meat and starch you choose) I highly recommend having the chef cook you some fresh shrimp there, with lots of garlic!

At the end of the meal (or in the middle? Your choice!) they have a full ice cream/sorbet bar along with a few other desserts. Their sorbets are DELICIOUS, which is quite odd for a Chinese buffet…. You wouldn’t expect them to have good ice cream right? Wrong. 100’s has you covered from beginning to end.

5. Jeong Won KBBQ

Jeong Won might be the most interesting KBBQ joints in San Diego- if only for the fact that the meat is in a buffet. So you get up and get your meats on a plate from a buffet section of the restaurant. The plus side of this is you can get how much or little as you’d like- you can get 5 pieces of steak and one piece of pork belly, or the other way around, instead of relying on the waiter to portion out meat for you. You also don’t have to wait- if they’re busy, you’re not sitting around waiting for the meat you ordered. Though the meat isn’t as high quality as Handoo and they don’t have as many side dishes, they do have scallion pancake and they offer more for the same price. Unlike Handoo, they include a few kinds of steak and also FISH! Yes, you can BBQ fish here. I might have eaten like 2-3 pounds just myself. I would recommend coming here if you are a newbie to KBBQ and want to try a lot of options with no strings attached. Also if you like fish. Like a lot.

Best Hidden Gems of San Diego Part 2

Hello friends! It’s time for the continuation of the best hidden gems in San Diego :) Now I go much more in depth about Soup Du Jour in another article, but to sum it up, SDJ is a cute hidden gem that serves soups and other dishes from around the world. It’s nestled in an apartment complex and has a beautiful patio with a fire pit! Every soup I’ve had from there is amazing, and you can tell how much effort they put into perfecting each dish. I often come here on rainy/cold days or when I need a bowl of soup to cheer me up. My favorites include the albondigas (Mexican meatball soup) and their vegetable udon (in a beautiful low sodium dashi broth!). If you’ve never had udon, it’s a thick bouncy Japanese noodle that’s actually my favorite type of noodle! I’m addicted to the thick juicy texture. My boyfriend’s favorite is the spare rib daikon- it reminds him of the soup his Taiwanese mom would cook for him growing up. I pair their soups with the spiced street chicken (Taiwanese popcorn chicken) and homemade taro chips. Their street chicken is as good as any boba shops’ on Convoy, which is saying a lot! And their taro chips are SO addicting, but without any of the additives or artificial flavors of chips at the supermarket. Anything you get from here will be a hit. Some of their other dishes include braised beef pot roast, scallion bread, chickpea cauliflower curry, roasted duck wraps. You can even get local beers/kombucha on tap here, as well as boba! If you miss Souplantation and are looking for a replacement for their soups, look no further!
