Mati's Kitchen Bringing More Birria To San Diego's Pacific Beach

October 10, 2022

Local birria food truck and pop-up concept Mati's Kitchen is replacing Oceans Pizzeria within The Promenade plaza in San Diego's Pacific Beach.

As the pandemic paralyzed the globe in early 2020, Miguel Saldana and Miles Bullock decided to take family recipes passed down through generations and start a mobile birria company dubbed Mati's Kitchen, popping up at area brew houses like Bottlecraft Little Italy and Stone Brewing's Kettner tasting room. Mati's Kitchen also recently rolled out its own food truck and has taken over the Pacific Beach space occupied for 15 years by Oceans Pizzeria before closing this past summer.  

The former Oceans Pizzeria space within The Promenade Pacific Beach is undergoing a complete interior redesign to have Mexican cultural decorations and a central bar that will serve beer, wine and traditional Mexican beverages like Micheladas, margaritas and agua frescas. There will also be outdoor seating where customers can enjoy the menu of house made birria, birria tacos, quesa birria tacos, birria tortas and more items to be added. 

Mati's Kitchen is anticipated to open in late October at 4150 Mission Boulevard, Suite 107, in San Diego's Pacific Beach. For more information, follow Mati's on Instagram.
