Mission Hills Restaurants to Feed the Munchies

We couldn’t be more psyched to be a part of the Mission Hills community, one of San Diego’s hippest and most exciting neighborhoods. And of course, that includes tons of great food options, ranging from California-style vegan treats to Cuban and Puerto Rican specialties to Japanese-style izakaya.

Whatever your pleasure, you’ll probably find it here, and our budtenders have done the hard work (no, really!) of trying them all so we can share only the best. Here’s Klover’s list of our favorite Mission Hills restaurants!

Sushi may have conquered America, but izakaya is closer to the true taste of Japan. Roughly translating to “drinking food,” it’s a collection of any kinds of savory dishes that catch the chef’s eye. You’ll find a broad range at this cozy and well-loved tavern: Ramen with rich stewed pork, piping-hot octopus-filled takoyaki pancake, and a slew of excellent nigiri and hand-rolled sushi for good measure. Ask for sake and soju recommendations and you can’t go wrong here.

This California-based chain prides itself on its sustainability, dedication to animal welfare and its 100% plant-based menu, but not at the expense of explosive flavors and consistently satisfying foods. From chili-slathered Korean-style “meatball” sliders to crunchy cauliflower with an addictive Thai dipping sauce to a hearty—and believable!—plant-based Reuben sandwich, you won’t leave this winning concept of a cafe missing meat.

Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill

Fish tacos may be Mexican in origin, but they could just as easily be called the “national dish” of San Diego. This popular, laid-back fishmarket and grill keeps the focus on the freshest of local fish, prepared simply and expertly. Choose your species, your preparation and your delivery device—sandwich, salad, taco or cocktail—and let the expert cooks take care of the rest.

Andrés Restaurant

This bright, clean and well-loved eatery has been serving up the sparkling flavors of Cuban and Puerto Rican cookery since 1983, and there’s no signs it’s slowing down. From comforting arroz con pollo, the iconic chicken and rice plate, to hard-to-find specialties like mofongo—fried mashed green plantains, served only on Sundays—Andrés is a culinary beacon both for homesick islanders and the rest of us.

Hey, we love taco carts at 2 AM as much as the next budtender, but there’s a time and a place for everything. When we’re craving expertly prepared Mexican dishes—and a list of tequilas so mind-boggling it’s rightfully called a “Tequila Museum”—we head here. From homemade soft tortilla sopes with elegant chipotle-sauced shredded chicken to vibrant green shrimp ceviche and artful, seafood-stuffed burritos and enchiladas, El Agave’s cuisine is a cut above the norm.
