2019 Taste of Leucadia
Over 1,000 people strolled along the streets of downtown Leucadia for this year’s Taste of Leucadia event in April, hosted by Leucadia 101 Main Street Association. The family-friendly evening event featured food samples from over 20 local restaurants including HapiFish, Birdseye Kitchen, Nectarine Grove, Le Papagayo, Bread & Barley, Umi Restaurant, and Valentina, among others; beer, wine, and kombucha tastings at 13 Sip Stops; and live music at five locations along the 2.5-mile Taste Trail.
Participating restaurants competed for the Platinum Plate Award, a people’s choice award for the best dish of the event, awarded this year to newcomer Chiko, which wowed attendees with a whole roasted pig. Their regular menu features a signature fusion of Chinese and Korean flavors with a creative twist. For information about other local events go to www.leucadia101.com.
