Mira Mesa is primarily a homeowner’s community that's centrally located only 15 minutes away from downtown San Diego and the beaches in La Jolla and Del Mar. Eating well here is never a problem, especially if you crave international cuisine. The neighborhood has a wide array of ethnic restaurants. Stop by one of the local Mexican spots and enjoy a California Burrito filled with thinly sliced strips of seasoned steak, cheddar cheese, guacamole and cut potato wedges. Top it off with some green and red salsa to complete the killer entree. The Islander culture is honored in this area by a variety of rice dishes that are served with marinated pork, beef or fish.
