Ocean Pacific Grille Now Open in San Diego

A New Seafood Restaurant & Bar located in the heart of San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter is now open! Ocean Pacific Grille is located at 531 F. St. San Diego, CA 92101. A few members of the newly formed San Diego Filipino Blogger Network got a sneak peek during a private tasting event. I was one of the lucky attendees! We were graciously welcomed by Brian Norris, Managing Partner and Charles Andres, Executive Chef|Partner.

You MUST visit our new friends and try their amazing Filipino inspired menu! Call ahead for reservations (619) 578-2828 and let them know that we sent you! The whole OPG family made us feel at home and will welcome you as well!

Crispy pork belly and ginger coconut risotto. Crispy skin sea bass and tamarind tomato broth 


As described on their website: "Ocean Pacific Grille features fresh seafood prepared using the bold flavors of the Pacific Rim, wrapped in a Filipino state of mind." First off, I have to say that I am a fan of seafood so I was sold before I even sat down for the sampling!  I love anything and everything seafood. The seafood (and all the dishes we tried) from Ocean Pacific Grille is unique. They aren't kidding in their description - wrapped in a Filipino state of mind! The food is reminiscent of dishes prepared by my family. Thoughtful little touches crafted into new gourmet favorites! The Tocino Toast is a must try!


Filipino Tocino Toast: Burrata cheese, slow roasted tomatoes, balsamic reduction.


I am already planning a return visit to take hubby for date night. We will try the Sisig Tacos! Hubby has roots in Pampanga where great food is highly regarded and cuisine is something that the region is well known for. Sisig is one of his all time faves!

The Wine Wall! Check out the decor! The wooden fork and spoon are proudly displayed - just like at your Lola's house!

Thanks to Ocean Pacific Grille, I have a few $10 cards to share with my readers. If you want one all you have to do is ask! While supply lasts of course! Let me know via comment on any of my social media channels that YOU want to go to Ocean Pacific Grille.  It's simple: tweet me, message me, just let me know! Hurry before I run out! First come first served!  I'd love your support if you feel inclined to follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook

I couldn't end my post without sharing a few pictures of the delicious drinks and desserts! Try to save room for dessert! Don't miss the OPG-Tini! It is the perfect little tropical drink!
