Now that California Kebab and Beer Garden has been open for a year, I guess it is time we let the secret out.
Great beer selection, beers brewed in house (under the name "Amplified Ales"), good food and a comfy outdoor patio with an ocean view - what's not to like? Ever since they opened in our neighborhood of Pacific Beach, they've been our go-to spot.
Their house beers have been consistently good - particularly the Electrocution IPA.
The food is really tasty as well, and different from what you typically get in other craft-beer-centric spots. As you might suspect from their name, the menu is kebab-centric. Our favorite is the lamb doner. It is really good as a sandwich on pita, but we especially like it made into a salad:
Our favorite sides are their falafel and zucchini:
If you are looking for something over the top, look no further than the doner fries:
In addition to local craft beers, they also usually have a few lower-alcohol German beers on tap. On Wednesday nights they serve them in liter steins for five bucks - a nice way to enjoy a relaxed evening.
The sunset view from the patio does not suck:
California Kebab is located at the South end of the second level of the Promenade - in the spot that once was Da Kine's Plate Lunches.
