Only a local knows that Convoy Street is where you go for authentic Asian Cuisine, and the authenticity is emphasized when a restaurant has a banner with its literal English name translation like “Suckling Pig”.
I’ll admit Kearny Mesa & East Clairemont are unappealing for the vacationer, BUT, if you happen to get stuck out there for one reason or another, you can always find great food on Convoy Street. Here are some that we frequent:
-Phuong Trangs (Vietnamese & Chinese Food, great for Pho)
-Tajima for Ramen (Japanese)
-Min Sok Chung (Korean Food)
-Tofu House (Korean Style Tofu Pot)
-Jasmine (Chinese, Dim Sum, great BBQ Pork Buns).
