Look, up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane…no, it’s Super Cocina! No question, one of the best Mexican restaurants in San Diego, this City Heights gem is worthy of donning a tortilla cape.  Established in 1988 with one main goal in mind, to serve the most authentic cooking from the Mexican heartland, Super Cocina change their menu daily in order to bring you more than 180 different culinary delights from different regions of Mexico, all made with the freshest ingredients.

With unique dishes served in a warm, friendly atmosphere, the restaurant will make you feel like you are eating with family.  Popular menu items include Chile Relleno, Carnitas, Puerco Enchilado (Spicy Pork), Pollo en Mole, Menudo and Birria — a rich soup featuring tender goat meat and a delicious, addictive broth.  Even radder, they offer free samples of daily dishes to help you make the best selection.  Huge.
