Duke's La Jolla

1216 Prospect St

La Jolla, CA 92037

Named after Olympic swimmer, water polo player, and surfing pioneer Duke Kahanamoku, this two-story oceanside spot is a mecca for all things surf & turf. Duke's uses Hawaiian flavors and ingredients to turn basic items into original, cuisine-bending plates. Items of note include baby back ribs with mango BBQ sauce; a hot pot of lobster, shrimp, mussels, and fish in a coconut cilantro broth; and fried rice with spam, linguica sausage, and kimchee.
