Welcome to another installment of our new Eater Guides feature, Where Chefs Eat. We want to know where the men and women of San Diego restaurants go to feed on their all-too-rare days off. Where do they choose to spend their hard-earned pay and what do they crave?
Alchemy Cultural Fare & Cocktails' executive chef Ricardo Heredia joined the popular neighborhood eatery when it first opened in South Park in 2009.
Since then, the chef has launched a cooking program for local students, been named to the The San Diego Union Tribune's Superdiners panel and was crowned the king of bacon.
Here, Heredia shares his favorite local dining spots to frequent when he's not in the kitchen.
