Oh, that darling little seaside lair of Ocean Beach. The casual beach neighborhood retreat that can generate the mood of a finely sliced vignette collected from the seventies, the very Haight-Ashbury of San Diego.
Known for its bike, surf, burrito shops, and a considerable population of wild parrots, this coastal little pocket nestled at the estuary of the San Diego River, is now set to make a notable mark in the region’s big culinary puddle of right now with its inaugural Ocean Beach Restaurant Week.
Obeceans know a happy home when they find it, and are not so eager to leave the nest when all their needs are met within an eight-mile radius. The success of local establishments such as the 3rd Corner, OB Noodle House, The Olive Tree Market, Azucar Cuban Bakery, have all led the way to OB’s emerging gastronomical awesomeness, further placing residents on seaside lockdown.
Helmed by the Ocean Beach Restaurant, Entertainment and Lodging group, this event is set for this December 3-7, and will be featuring twenty four participating restaurants and eateries. All of which are hoping to leave their mark in the culinary crusade from this coastal corner of the world.
Do you hear that? That’s the sound of the sea calling your name. It’s also the squawking coming from your abdominal region that’s yearning to try new food establishments, watering holes, luncheonettes, and the myriad of sprinkled chophouses that the region has to offer. So, silence the sobs of your appetite, and make certain to pay us a visit next week for Ocean Beach Restaurant Week.
Just park your wheels, then hop on the ankle express to take in the footwandering sights and the quaint beach town eats. Don’t forget to strike up some friendly chatter with the local diners. You may just find that not all of us are from planet half-baked.
