Red Pearl Kitchen San Diego

440 J St. , Suite 108
San Diego , CA , United States
(619) 231-1100

The Gaslamp Quarter’s Red Pearl Kitchen is a romantic Pan-Asian fusion restaurant by boutique restaurateurs Tim and Liza Goodell. A humungous and intricately carved red chair sits at the entrance in stylized contrast to the unassuming slate exterior. The interior has a red glow, leather banquettes, colorful lanterns, and minimalist wood furniture. The menu melds the cuisines of Pan-American and Asian cuisines with an emphasis on dim sum, noodles, and wok-fried dishes. Options include the chili-caramel prawns or classic Korean barbecue short ribs. Hot pots bring comforting flavors, such as braised tofu and bok choy, in a Shiitake mushroom broth.
