Definitely a 5-star food dinner experience for me! Food is authentic, delicious. I’m from the city area and do love Mexican food and dine a lot in Mexican restaurants. But I’ve never had a burrito that is so well done: very thin tortilla wrap, with juicy food well wrapped in. The seafood cocktail is well seasoned and loaded too. I have to say comparing with their burrito, the ones I had before are so dry and the wrap were usually double the thickness. I told my husband I feel like someone who’s been eating fast food dry burg... read more

Great food and service. The owner is sincere and off to a great start with a family business. I recommend the appetizer soup with a single shrimp on a chilly day in pacific beach. After the warm appetizer the ceviche is tasty and filled with shrimp 🦐 I also ate the Al Pastor tacos until I couldn’t eat anymore. The Tamarind drink has 140 calories but it is super tasty. I met the owner and his family when i visited the shop and they are great San Diego people.

Pretty bummed that this is the shrimp "ceviche" I got for $8. Had maybe 4 whole shrimps combined. Shrimp was very hard and warm, so I did not eat it. Convinced I was given a shrimp cocktail instead of ceviche as this was mostly clamato and pico 🙁

Saw this place featured on Netflix’s Taco Chronicles: Cross the Border- the San Diego episode. I enthusiastically told my family-“We have to try it” even though they thought Oscar’s Mexican Seafood (across the street) looked better. When La Perla gets that sort of publicity on Netflix-you would think food and service would be exceptional due to stardom opportunities like that. We should have gone to Oscar’s. We walked in to La Perla at 2:30 and I politely asked the cashier if they were still taking orders as I saw they c... read more
