If there’s one thing that North County residents enjoy more than the beach, it’s the various cuisine, beverages, and sweet treats throughout San Diego. Here, we offer a taste of some local flavor.

Tasty Trends

Street Food

For the past several years, food trucks seem to have taken over the culinary scene in cities around the world. This modern dining option offers quick, gourmet food – anytime, anywhere. Mobile cuisine encompasses everything from burgers, hot dogs, tacos, and barbecue to grilled cheese sandwiches, bacon, macaroni and cheese, vegan food, and international fusions – each with their own unique twist. When you’re craving something delightfully different (and convenient!) try one of the many food trucks cruising through North San Diego County. Union Cowork in Encinitas hosts a food truck every Thursday at 12 p.m.
