On my last night in San Diego, I had dinner with the classmates I was training with. Since San Diego is known for their Mexican food and fish tacos, we decided to go to Habanero’s Mexican Grill which was right beside our hotel.
At first we thought Habanero’s was a sit-down restaurant, but it turns out, it’s more an order at counter, then take your seat type of eatery. So basically it’s like a food court but with just one restaurant.
For eat-in patrons, they have a decent salsa bar with some condiments. All three of their salsas were pretty spicy.
Chips are only $0.99! They were fresh and crispy.
I didn’t try any of the other’s food, so here’s just some pictures.
This is MommaMim’s Chicken Quesadilla.
North Carolina’s Chile Relleno.
I’ve been told to try the fish tacos when in San Diego, so here’s my Fish Tacos ($2.95USD each) from Habanero’s.
I had assumed that it would be grilled fish but they turned out to be deep fried. They were topped with lots of regular and red cabbage, carrot ribbons, tomatos, and cheese.
There was lots of filling in each taco and the deep fried fish was flavorful and moist. I was really happy with my choice.
All in all it was a great last night in San Diego with some really really great and funny conversations with my new friends. They were all from eastern United States (Ohio, North Carolina, and Alabama) so I learned a great deal from them in regards to their culture, mostly food related but also some fun new vocabulary! Fun stuff indeed!
