Mexico in Mission Beach

In the mood for some authentic Mexican food but neglected to carry your passport? On this side of the border, La Playa Taco Shop brings Mexican food to the heart of Mission Beach, just a five-minute drive from downtown San Diego. This hideaway isn’t the normal last-call burrito dive that preys on the cravings of tipsy college students, but a true find that offers a meal to remember. Though interior decor is nondescript (though the exterior is ornate), La Playa fairly hums with the sound of Spanish and English harmonically interblending. The warm hostess will make you feel instantly at home, and you can choose from a variety of tasty breakfast, lunch, or dinner items. Local favorites include the fish and shrimp burritos, as well as the extraordinary California Burrito, a perfected combination of carne asada, cheese, guacamole, salsa, and French fries. Afterwards, cross the street and enjoy walking off the meal by strolling down the Mission Beach boardwalk, taking in a calming ocean sunset.
