Discover Carmel Valley

As a northern San Diego neighborhood, Carmel Valley is an ideal place dine on authentic Mexican food, Italian cuisine, and even Japanese fare. Order fresh guacamole or a large Mexican platter that includes fish, beans, steak, and cornbread. If you’re craving something Italian, then consider ordering the paccheri Emiliana or the salmone escada. When it comes to the area’s Japanese fare, try menu items such as a rice bowl, the vegan miso shoyu or a fusion dish like the carnitas-filled steamed buns. If traditional American cuisine is your thing, then you’ll come across plenty of dining choices that fit this bill. Bar and grill establishments in the area serve up burgers, steak, and chicken. In Carmel Valley, the good food makes it easy to stay full.
