Food - South Park/Golden Hill
Places to eat in the nearby neighborhoods of South Park and Golden Hill, all within walking distance. I have not included in the list below some of the restaurants in the neighborhood like Del Sur (Mexican) or Curriosity (Indian) at 30th and Juniper, as they are less likely to be used by a solo traveler, but they are also within walking distance and would be good for a meetup with friends.
Really good classic thin crust pizza! Only a few minutes walk away, and open late. Made fresh. Choose slices from many different kinds. They often have vegan slices. Great for solo traveler.

A local Mexican favorite. Filling bean and cheese burrito! (FYI vegans, in SD classic Mexican eateries usually use lard for refried beans-they do here) Pair with a horchata rice drink or a fresh made to order fruit drink for a cheap and filling lunch. Don't overlook the fresh cucumber, sliced fresh radish, spicy pickled carrots, and fresh salsa for the side .

Closest Sprouts. Good if you are here more long-term and wish to stock up on some items beyond the local markets. A health food store with some bulk items, cheaper than Whole Foods. A local favorite, very good quality, excellent sales every week particularly on weekends on fruits. Relatively close Uber/Lyft ride.
If you are here for a longer period and have a car, the closest Trader Joe's is in Hillcrest, 1090 University Avenue, Ste G100-107
