Convoy Street and the surrounding areas serve as the economic and cultural centre of the Asian Pacific American community in San Diego. Simply put, it is the de-facto Asia Town of America’s Finest City!
This bustling 2-square mile area – conveniently located in the Pacific Triangle bounded by the 805, 52, and 163 freeways – consists of hundreds of shops specializing in Asian products and services, including supermarkets, tea houses, cafes, karaokes bars, entertainment venues, community centers, worship halls, as well as an abundant of day-to day professional & service-related shops.
What makes the area stand out is that this is where San Diegans & travelers come when craving for authentic Asian eats. Dedicated foodies, adventurous locals, hungry tourists, on-the-go professionals, budget-minded college students, and weekend families alike all converge here to find the region’s best spots for Chinese Dim Sum, Vietnamese Pho, Korean BBQ, and Japanese Sushi. Its Chinatown, Thai Town, Koreatown… all rolled into one – SD style. Almost nowhere else in America you would find a such diverse collection of Pan-Asian shops & services, which adds to the unique experience.
The goal is to create and capture the vibrancy found elsewhere in local destinations such as Gaslamp, Little Italy, North Park and Hillcrest – with a 21st century flair – focusing on neighborhood innovation, community investment, urban planning, global partnerships and a vision to transform the area into San Diego’s next great neighborhood.
