Being vegetarian or vegan shouldn’t mean suffering the constant hassle of unloading a laundry list of specifications onto beleaguered servers. Nor should it mean poking sheepishly at a sad salad while your dining companions enjoy far more enticing meals. Luckily, this is SoCal, and we know how to take care of people who are taking care of their bodies and/or the planet.
When you’re going meatless in San Diego, here’s where you should be going.
What you’re getting: Lettuce cup tacos
Petco Park isn’t exactly known for its veggie-friendly fare, so if you’re looking to pre-game somewhere healthy then this is the place. Walking distance from the stadium is Sol Cal Café, a vegan restaurant and juice bar that's owned by former NFL player Jacob Bell. From the cold-pressed organic juices to the vegan burgers, everything is made fresh in-house. Taking it one step further, everything is also organic, local, GMO-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, and unrefined to ensure you’re getting the best ingredients possible in each dish. That’s definitely more than you can say for a ballpark hot dog.
