I was able to confirm what you were seeing using both an .eps and .pdf
file of the region plot image.

Note that I used the LaTeX package "epstopdf" to automatically convert
the .eps file to .pdf.

If I display the mesh with the mesh being the same color as the region
then I no longer see the "pattern of grids" in my generated .pdf
file.  I can do this using
RegionPlot[x^2+y^3<2, {x,-2,2},{y,-2,2}, Mesh->All, MeshStyle->Pink,

Unfortunately, using this method--the region's boundary disappears.  I
do not know how to display the boundary.  Do you know how to do this?
