For Szechuan Chinese try the Panda Inn in Horton Plaza near downtown San
Diego.  One of the best Chinese dishes I have ever had is their Sweet and
Pungent Shrimp, made extra hot. 

For cheap and killer carne asada burritos try Roberto's.  It's a local
Mexican fast food chain with locations all over the area.  Really low
prices and popular with many locals. 

In Old Town San Diego (only a few blocks in size) there used to be a good
Mexican Restaurant.  I don't recall the name but it was the one with people
making hand made tortillas in the front window.  It patrons were usually a
mix of tourists and the young local crowd.  Good Margaritas too.  

It's hard to go more than a few blocks in San Diego County without passing
some kind of ethnic restaurant where you can get your daily dose of chile
if you are adventurous.  Most of it is pretty good too!

Good Luck and have Fun!
