San Diego might not be the ultimate hotspot for all things cultural, but the few restaurants, shops and areas that are available are home runs. Super El Camino (the newer, bigger sister to the original El Camino) is situated in Downtown San Diego on a quiet corner where the only thing worth noting is the neon spinning arrow atop the restaurant.
The interior, branding and everything in between was designed by Mauricio Couturier, with plenty of lighting, wallpaper and kitschy Mexican themes throughout. Though the interior is teeming with bottle cap covered columns, piñata streamers and banquettes that look like your grandma’s plastic covered sofa (only cooler), the outdoor areas shine as well. There’s something for all of the senses in this space, even down to the fonts and branding in the menus and beyond– all designed by Mauricio Couturier as well.
