It tastes like smooth custard but it’s from the sea. My first Asian pear that didn’t taste like a dried piece of jicama. Catalina Offshore Products and Specialty Produce are 2 winning businesses serving San Diego with ultimate freshness. Both are independently owned and what started as grass roots became 5 star for chefs and the public. CatalinaOP off Moreno Blvd, sells sushi grade tuna, freshly caught fish and provides cooking classes to show you the correct ways to cook fish. Most of us still have nightmares from being forced to eat fish growing up, but this San Diego fish market will totally erase those images. #CatalinaOP

Specialty Produce began as a small market and has evolved into a 24/7 warehouse full of organic, local and premium produce on Hancock St.  Peek at items chefs are buying and get adventurous with mushrooms, root vegetables and apples that are impressive to look at and eat. A fun outing is to explore both places since they are minutes apart and learn San Diego has more to offer than cod and red apples. #Specialtyproduce
