Scouting out places to eat while swimming in the hubbub of San Diego Comic-Con can be a challenge. Luckily, I’ve attended the Con with determined foodies every year, and we’ve had the pleasure of finding some of the best food, without wandering far from the convention center. Here’s a list of my top picks:
1. Devilicious Food Truck
You guys, they have a butter-poached lobster and grilled cheese sandwich. It’s one of the best things you’ll ever have. Plus, this food truck is cheap, quick, and easy to eat on the run. Check out their website to see their schedule: http://deviliciousfoodtruck.com/schedule/
If you catch your breath long enough for a sit-down meal, Rama has fantastic Thai cuisine in the gas lamp quarter. We loved the crispy calamari (pictured), but we were also all up on their garlic-crusted chicken and duck drunken noodles. For a place with perfect food and awesome atmosphere that won’t break the bank, be sure to check it out. See our full Rama review. Located at 327 4th Ave.
3. Marina Kitchen at the Marriott Marquis
Conveniently located right next to the convention center, the Marina Kitchen is perfect for a quick bite in the middle of the day when you don’t want to wander too far from the action, but when you can’t eat anymore nachos or hot dogs from Hall H. Marina Kitchen is known for its warm potato chips topped with crispy prosciutto and cheese (pictured), as well as being a hoppin’ place packed with celebrities and industry peeps– check out the bar at night to see what we mean. Read our full review of Marina Kitchen here. Located at 333 W Harbor Dr.
Well, today Jeff and I leave for San Diego, and I’m bursting at the seams with excitement as we head toward ComicCon! I couldn’t help but reminisce of all the fun times I’ve had in years past, so I thought I’d share some of my favorite memories. Enjoy, and look forward to many more gushing updates and fun photos from ComicCon in the next week!
