We also have 6 other soups on a daily basis for those soup lovers!!!
We've been voted San Diego Best Deli countless years, and we're in the news and on the radio all the time.

About the restaurant
Coco Maya is inspired by exploring the history of the Islands and Latin American regions of the Caribbean Ocean.

The dishes are a contemporary link from the past to the present using local produce and Seafood guided by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch. European influence in flavor and cooking techniques are echoed throughout the menu with the core of the kitchen coming from the Coal Fired Josper Oven. Hints of the Ocean, smoke, and char will reverberate through all the dishes.

A daily Brunch Menu is centered around composed Latin American and Caribbean breakfast dishes with rotating pastries and a unique Sandwich called Bokit (a stuffed fry bread from the French Islands of Guadeloupe).

Snacks vary from a simple play on Chex Mix to a fun tableside version of a Raclette queso fundido.

Dinner transitions into a more select atmosphere with the food offering a variety of plant-based small plates and large format proteins cooked over coals

I came here on a Thursday afternoon and it wasn’t as busy but I can see it being so on the weekends. I ordered the believe omakase set and it was a great deal for its price! My favourite was the two handrolls (salmon and toro). The salmon cuts were amazing and tasted fresh. The toro was packed in the hand roll and was also super yummy. Some of the sauces on the nigiris could have been better but I’m not one to complain for its price. I would definitely come back again for the handrolls.
