When you’re hungry for Mexican food in San Diego, the choices are practically endless. In Coronado, the best option is Miguel’s Cocina. A member of the illustrious Brigantine family of restaurants, Minguel's serves up hot and tasty fare that’s steps above the rest. Seafood-lovers adore the calamari torta, a sautéed squid sandwich, and the calamari relleno. Vegetarians are represented with the veggie cheese enchiladas, while others will prefer meaty meals like the carne asada torta, the beef or chicken flautas, and the steaming chicken enchiladas. As in any self-respecting Mexican restaurant, the margaritas are mouth-melting. Miguel’s is also a fun spot to throw that next fiesta, offering three flavorful private rooms to accommodate guests: the Baja Room, the Cabo Room, and the Fiesta Room.
The delicious white cheese jalapeno sauce that is served with the chips is legendary and sold by the pint. The salsa at Miguel's is fantastic too; overall, Miguel's is the bst place to get tapas (appetizers) and margaritas, and it's recommended to ask to be seated out on the patio. Miguel's is nestled in the courtyard of Mission-styled shops, which lends a wonderful ambience to the restaurant. The warm, cozy and romantic astmosphere can be enjoyed best from the patio, with delicious food and beautiful views. The shrimp at Miguel's is perfectly cooked and servings are large but not too large. Last but not least, Miguel's offers a large selection of Mexican beers to complement the Mexican cuisine of the restaurant.
