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.


Taste of Encinitas

Community members gathered along Highway 101 for this year’s Taste of Encinitas, sampling small plates from over 25 local restaurants and libations from 19 “sip stops.” Fish Shop Encinitas won Best Taste for the third time for their popular Fish Shop Shrimp: shrimp marinated in special seasoning, sautéed, and served with chipotle aioli.


Let’s Taco ‘Bout It

City Tacos will soon be expanding to its third location in Encinitas. With two shops already thriving in North Park and La Mesa, City Tacos will bring its innovative eats to the Lumberyard, taking over the space formerly occupied by Sakura Bana Japanese Restaurant. Meat, fish, paleo, and vegan options will be available.
