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.



The fifth annual Uncorked: San Diego Wine Festival will be held on Saturday, March 28 from 1 to 5 p.m. at Embarcadero Marina Park North, where attendees can sip over 200 wines and ciders from across the globe, and enjoy music, food trucks, and more, all benefiting local nonprofit Urban Surf 4 Kids. Find more information and tickets at www.uncorkedwinefestivals.com/uncorked-san-diego-wine-fest.

Modern Mexican

Tocaya Organica recently opened its doors at One Paseo, serving up modern Mexican fare using locally sourced organic ingredients. The health-driven menu includes salads, bowls, tacos, burritos, and quesadillas – everything starts vegan, with add-in options like fresh meat or fish – along with specialty margaritas, agua fresca, and horchata.
