People From Sorrento Mesa Hate Being Affiliated With Mira Mesa

by staff on January 2, 2009


One surefire way to piss off someone from Sorrento Mesa is to introduce them as someone that lives in Mira Mesa during a dinner party.  Ninety nine times out of a hundred they will correct you and explain that Sorrento Mesa is more upscale, clean, and has far less sexual offenders and predators.

While the above may be true, people from Mira Mesa and Sorento Mesa are literally next door neighbors and it’s a shame they cannot get along.  After all, can anybody actually tell where Mira Mesa ends and Sorrento Mesa begins?  I sure can’t.

haha the way to tell you’re entering Sorrento Mesa is when you get to the police radar traps set up on Calle Cristobal to pull over people coming out of Mira Mesa… The man gotta keep dem people down!

…when every other car isn’t a honda/acura, and don’t feel coerced to re-enact the “Fast and Furious” on the way to the grocery store. also, there will be a few less frozen yogurt shops around. that’s how you know you’re not in Mira Mesa anymore.

… where the gas price goes up at least 10c/gallon.
… where you actually see the drivers’ full head through the front/rear window
… where I live and work as opposed to where I go for cheap food
… where a front yard has plants as opposed to car parts and oil all over
… where the gardener trucks change direction: out to of Mira Mesa in the morning, in after work

The identity crisis really came to a head a couple years ago when the ‘Welcome to Mira Mesa’ sign went up at the end of the I-805 off-ramp to the Mira Mesa Boulevard / Sorrento Valley Road exit.

We nearly had a triple doozy when a ‘Morton’s of La Jolla’ was proposed to be built at the corner of Scranton and Mira Mesa Blvd. I guess it was a good thing that fell through.

It is very easy to determine Mira Mesa from Sorrento Mesa.

Mira Mesa has a Zip code of 92126.

Sorrento Mesa is anything between Camino Santa Fe and 805 which has a zip code of 92121.

If your zip code is 92126, then you can’t deny it, you live in Mira Mesa.

Sorrento Mesa is a SUBAREA of the Mira Mesa Community Plan.
See for the map.

In other words, it is the Mira Mesa Community who planned the development of Sorrento Mesa.

Therefore, technically Sorrenta Mesa is under the Mira Mesa Community.

Mira Mesa Community covers between 1-805 and 1-15. See

Just like other areas where Chula Vista has some old areas and new developed areas. Escondido has old areas and newly developed areas. Mira Mesa is the same thing.

Of course, the ones who reside/work in the better developed areas become snobs and go, I am from the Sorrento Mesa not Mira Mesa.

So basically, if you work or live between I-805 and I-15, you are part of the Mira Mesa Community.

So if the people from Sorrento Mesa HATE being affiliate with Mira Mesa, I am sorry to say that it is in the bloodline – Sorrento Mesa people are a subset of the Mira Mesa Community whether you like it or not. The Mira Mesa Community created you.

When you stop seeing restaurants called Pho dat shiet, or Pho dis plais, then you’re in Sorrento Mesa
