It’s a judgment tossed our direction by La La Landers and other unjustifiably snobby sorts: “San Diego food sucks…except for the Mexican food, which is pretty good.”
Damning by faint praise? No, more like backasswards bullshit. It’s our food scene that doesn’t suck and our Mexican food that pretty much does. And much like the San Andreas, it’s all our fault. The Taco Stand (645 B St.) in downtown is Exhibit A.
