This post is part of a series where I talk to local Chefs and ask “where do you like to eat on your down time? Any place any price point; where do you go?
Karina’s is a local San Diego family run chain of six restaurants that started providing fresh, traditional Mexican seafood nearly 30 years ago.
Karina’s in Oceanside stands in what was, all through my childhood, an old school Jack In The Box
My meal choice was as follows
Karina’s Traditional shrimp ceviche. Chopped shrimp, cucumbers, avocado,and cilantro in a spicy Serrano sauce.
Grilled Octopus and Shrimp Tacos, Baja style with a chili glaze.
Everything was fresh, made to order and excellent. I can see why Chef Mark loves this place. Simple, delicious food, executed perfectly.
If you want great food…ask a chef.
