El Camino is a restaurant and bar concept, created by Mauricio Couturier, to provide an exciting and memorable Mexican dining experience in a kitschy neighborhood atmosphere. Our menu reflects an authentic blend of recipes and food concepts of popular modern foods from Mexico. We strive to seasonally source as much as possible from local area farms and businesses in San Diego. El Camino introduces a funky restaurant hangout to the Little Italy community that strives to be affordable, accessible, and addicting.
