The Gaslamp District in San Diego is where it's all at. California's chilled city has plenty to offer in this part of town, but my colleagues and I wanted something fast, because we'd spent the morning working like beasts at the San Diego convention centre.

Rockin Baja and Lobster Coastal Cantina is just across the street from the centre, within the Gaslamp District. It was right there, so in we went. It was the best decision we made.

Rockin Baja

A relaxed, yet lively vibe is how I'd describe Rockin Baja. They specialise in seafood, but it's certainly not a pretentious place. It's a sports bar in many respects, but also a restaurant serving incredibly well-seasoned, delicious food, with fantastic staff on hand to boot.

And cheap: four drinks, two starters, and three mains came to $71, and that was including the tip. Service is speedy too. We ordered our starters, after taking advantage of the free salsa, tortilla chips and bean bar, and ten minutes later, our food arrived.

My colleagues and I were hungry, so naturally, we ordered starters. We really shouldn't have - the portions were huge. My colleague chose the lobster bites and sweet potato chips, whilst I ordered the cod ceviche. Oh my god it was fantastically fresh, with lime juice, with, tomatoes, creamy avocado, and spicy dip.

Then I had the fish tacos. These were phenomenal. The tacos consisted of grilled, tender cod fillets, cojita cheese, shredded cabbage and salsa. Despite the size of each taco, they were light and pliable, which made for easy eating.

After filling my face with two tacos, I had to loosen my belt, but it was worth it; well and truly worth it.

Attention being paid

Find Rockin Baja in the Gaslamp District and feast on their other dishes, which looked just as good, and won't cost the earth. It's not often that you find good food at a good price, but mind-blowing dishes, without being over-complicated, are a rarity, or at least I thought so until I visited Rockin Baja. I live in the hope that they'll open one in the UK soon.
