Best Mexican Fusion Food

INDIGO Grill has a good selection on their Menu. They serve authentic, tasty food with service with a smile. It will be good if they add some more items on their menu to cater for vegans and vegetarians. It is a very pleasant place to spend an evening with friends and family.

When in San Diego, do go to the Indigo Grill in Little Italy. Run by executive chef Deborah Scott, it is an amazing experience of flavours and tastes. Be sure to share the dishes :-) Start with Bibimbap; a super heated stone bowl full of lap cheong, kimchi, ginger, garlic, egg, scallion, peas, jalapenos and chili paste on "crispy" rice... More

Brought our little girls. They enjoyed beautiful fresh fruit plates. Nice seating on the patio, heater for our comfort. Food and atmosphere was wonderful. Salmon cooked perfectly. Crusted Brie was delicious with jalapeños jelly and roasted garlic. Hubby loved the pork belly skewers. Awesome first meal out in San Diego.

What a disappointment. The pork belly kebab was all fat and the chicken satay was dry and tasteless- served with piles of very ordinary pickled vegetables. The hummus was lovely, though- but that's not hard to do. We enjoyed the house queso and chorizo wrapped in a corn tortilla but they didn't have to skimp on the chorizo. There are... More

Took my daughter, who is a vegetarian, to Indigo after reading about it online. It was very good. The only reason I have not voted this one of my best meals ever, is that I travel a lot and have a lot of amazing meals; but this place will be revisited someday. We had a Baked Brie Appetizer that was... More

Great spot for dinner or a quick bite. Happy Hour 5-6 pm all San Diego beers on tap $5! I needed my greens and started with the baby kale and quinoa salad. Large portion with grilled bread on the side. Went for a Habanero Sculpin and Fried Chicken. Good portion 5-6 wings with a nicely paired serrano vinaigrette. Slaw underneath... More

We ate at the Indigo Grill last week, and it was so good that we went a second time for our last night in San Diego. We went for happy hour and got the baked Brie with jalepeno jelly....AMAZING! This was one of the best dishes I have ever had. The flavor on this dish was incredible between the spice,... More

Went for my wife's birthday, based on friends recommendation and menu. 12 hours later and I am still thinking about the baked crusted brie. I enjoyed all the food, and found the food cooked perfectly. At first I was a little concerned because I thought it would be hard to hear my wife and friends, but we were able to... More

the interior is very nice. Food and drinks are good, prices are reasonable. Many dishes are acute, so be careful.
