Spike Africa’s is the newest addition to the Downtown/Little Italy tour which highlights the fresh seafood culture that exemplifies San Diego. The name “Spike Africa” has become popular in sea folklore tales and can better be attributed to the “President of the Pacific Ocean.” It originated from a devout seaman and expert sailor of the West Coast and Pacific Ocean, Philip Marion Africa. He later got his name Spike, from a rigging tool used in sailing, and it stuck with him ever since.
Spike Africa’s takes you on a culinary adventure of fresh seafood shaped by Master Chef Paul Rinaudo. They are most known for their seafood which they source fresh from local fish markets and local fisherman. Grab a burst of seafood deliciousness with one of their many seafood dishes like the Poke Bowl with Mango pictured below.
