A Taste of Little Italy

Beer Breweries Food and Vine Happy Hour Local Business Tours Walking Tours Wine Train Winemaking Wineries

There are so many delicious neighborhoods in San Diego to explore. I recently moved within walking distance of Little Italy, so I decided to check my new local eateries.
After only a few blocks, I came across Pete’s Quality Meats and Grilled Sandwiches.  Their window claimed to have the best homemade sausage sandwiches in town!

So we stepped inside to find a friendly Italian guy manning a well-loved grill warming sausage and peppers.

After a quick look at the menu, we placed our order. One homemade sausage sandwich with everything please!

Sandwiches with everything come with grilled onions and peppers, the steak with melted cheese. You can add salt, pepper, mustard, and hot sauce to taste. The sausage is hand made daily. Sweet and rich, without being over herby, it is unlike any store bought brat. The bread is crusty on the outside, tender and sweet on the inside, and caked with sesame seeds.  A few minutes and few bucks later, we started devouring our delicious lunch. Paired with a Stone Brewery IPA, this lunch combination would be hard to beat! Bon Appétit!

I’m looking forward to future food exploring! After all, we need to find something for dessert…
