Whether you rate your meals using the proverbial star, point or diamond systems, I think we can all agree that you can recall the best meals you’ve ever had. We get it – those meals follow you through life, always internally heckling subpar contenders as you covet your next best bite. As fellow foodies, we recognize the struggle to narrow down your dining bucket list to only the crème de la crème, especially in a city as food-centric as San Diego. That said, we’re here to do the legwork for you, exposing our palates to the elements of America’s Finest City to deliver to our readers the city’s most worthwhile eateries and top noshes – the kinds you’ll only find, you guessed it, only once in a full spoon!
