Old Town Mexican Cafe – San Diego

We went on an adventure while we were in San Diego for lunch the day that we saw the USS Midway. This restaurant was recommended to me by Val from BonBon Break to have the best carnitas ever! Hmmm, I have never had a carnita before but I was completely game!! We hadn’t been to Old Town yet either so I was excited to go and explore!!

The area is so quaint and lovely, a stroll was in order!!!

We found Old Town Mexican Cafe easily as it is on the main street. Right after entering we were happily brought to our table!

Okay, so onto the food, I was told they had the best carnitas. So that is what I ordered. They come regular or crispy, I went for the crispy!!

    wow..everything looks awesome! We go to San Diego each Summer for Comic-Con and we’ve been planning out places we want to eat at and I think I’m going to have to add this to our list. Thanks for sharing this, Tara..and for all the great photos!
