My Favorite San Diego Restaurants!

Hello everyone! Really really REALLY long time no talk! This has been such a chaotic time for all of us with school and college and reality right around the corner! But amid the maddness, I decided to braindump all of my favorite restaurants in San Diego before I move to LA. I search high and low for cool and instagram worthy restaurants on the daily and so here I have compiled all of my favorites in one huge list! I can guarentee that all of these places are both hip and yummy and DEFINITELY worth checking out. Follow my food blog @eversohangry to see updates on where I am dining on a day to day basis!
