San Diego is home to dozens of weekly pop-up markets where you can find some of the tastiest food from hardworking micro entrepreneurs, many of whom are on the path to building their own brick-and-mortar restaurants. Casa Ocho is one success story and a beloved local favorite thanks to its decadent vegetarian Mexa Grub- fully loaded street-style tortas, chilaquiles, and more. It now has a more permanent home located behind Old Town's Flor & Seed coffee shop; go for the Tres Chanclas, its triple-stacked take on a quesadilla, and stay for La Torta del Ocho, its take on a Mexican barrio staple made with chilaquiles stuffed into a telera roll.
