SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — San Diego isn't just America's Finest City, it's also a haven for those seeking to enlighten their culinary horizons.

Yelp recently named San Diego to its list of top 10 cities for food lovers, coming in fifth and touting some new, delicious spots locals and tourists alike have raved about.

The website specifically pointed to dishes like Werewolf's pork belly Benedict in the Gaslamp District, Convoy Street's TastyPot for some kimchi dumpling hot soup, and hot chicken at Hillcrest's Common Stock. Yelp also threw some love behind Spring Valley's Cali Comfort BBQ.


San Diego has certainly reveled in the limelight for foodies. Last year, WalletHub ranked the city ninth on its list of best cities for foodies. Early this year, Yelp also celebrated San Diego as one of the top 100 places to eat in the U.S.

TripAdvisor also named San Diego as one of the best cities for pizza in the U.S.
