San Diego is teeming with great Asian flavors that will make of a great gastronomic adventure for those craving for this cuisine!
San Diego Magazine tried to reason out why San Diego is home to one of the best Asian Restaurants in California. “The 2010 census lists San Diego as having one of the largest Asian populations in the U.S.—13.5 percent. Filipino is most prevalent (6.15 percent), followed by Vietnamese (2.25), Chinese (1.86), Japanese (0.78), and Korean (0.58).
Foodwise, my unofficial observation would be that Thai, Vietnamese, and Korean dominate SD, for various reasons. Thai’s coconut resonates with the American sweet tooth. Viet meals are heaps of fresh veggies, fitting SoCal’s salad fetish. Korean? Well, Americans speak barbecue.” Read the continuation of this article here.
The website 10Best.com counted down to their most recommended Asian Restaurants in San Diego, California. Rama over at the Gaslamp Quarter made it to their list. “While you decide whether to have the Tom Yum or the Tom Kha, sip on a one of the many cocktails created by Rama’s adventuresome bartender. Marvel at the rich décor – cushy banquettes, a textural wall of flat rock, sheer curtains adding a bit of privacy to deep booths, and a warm color palette of paprika and earthy browns. For your main course, select a protein (from tofu to beef to shrimp) and your preferred preparation, be it spicy or mild. Or select traditional pad thai, massaman curry or kra pao.” Read about the nine other recommended Asian restaurants in their list here.
