Are you currently on the hunt for a new favorite Mexican spot? San Diego is packed with eats from south of the border but there’s one more restaurant to be added to the list and it’s called Del Sur Mexican Cantina. Located in the lively community of South Park, Del Sur serves up classic Mexican comfort food dishes at reasonable prices. The menu includes all the Mexican staples such as hearty burritos, enchiladas and tacos. Can’t decide what to order? Opt for a combination plate and choose any two or three items so you can try even more delicious items. I loved the Carne Asada plate with grilled flank steak, rajas melody, guacamole, charred panela, and pickled cactus. Served with corn tortillas, beans and rice to make your own fajitas style tacos or to eat as your like. Definitely try their margaritas! You’ll love the Mango Chili Margarita with 100% Agave Tequila Reposado, Mango, Pineapple, Lime, Triple Sec, and Serrano cocktail spice. It’ll be hard not to fill up on the top notch chips and salsa they bring to their table. The salsa is without a doubt the best I’ve tried in San Diego. For appetizers, try the popular and decadent Queso Crisp, a crispy and cheesy flour tortilla topped with a chayote, corn, and mushroom melody and finished with poblano crema, cotija, and cilantro. You’ve also got to try the out of control delicious South Park Street Corn featuring freshly shucked, charred corn, poblano crema, cotija, and lime, topped with a corn chip crumble and cilantro.  The biggest surprise on the menu? The borderline-addictive bean and potato flautas – beans, potato, and cheese wrapped in a flour tortilla, fried and served on top of a poblano tomatillo creama.    Other highlights include Veggie Enchiladas, which has chayote, charred corn, and mushroom stuffed and rolled in corn tortillas, doused in a pasilla / creamy tomatillo sauce topped with poblano crema and cheese, lettuce, and picked onions. Chile Relleno, a poblano stuffed with a 3 cheese blend and panella, lightly battered then fried, served on top of a roasted pepper cream sauce. And don’t forget hot churros and ice cream for dessert!
