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 New Dish in Town

The recently established 508 Tavern (pictured above) won this year’s Golden Fork award, and their Korean tacos are quickly becoming Vista’s hottest dish. Opened just a few short months ago, the spot is already developing a loyal following of folks who enjoy unique food and a good brew. Check them out at 508 South Santa Fe Ave.



Poke Bowls

San Diego locals love their coastal cuisine, so it comes as no surprise that poke is taking America’s Finest City by storm. The Hawaiian dish – pronounced POH-kay – is a raw fish salad typically served with rice and seaweed and is recognized for its health benefits. Next time you’re craving something filling and refreshing, try out one of the many poke shops that have popped up throughout North County.



To Market, To Market

Hunt for farm-fresh finds each week at the Vista Farmers Market! The market features 53 farmers selling what they grow; local, certified, and organic growers with in-season produce, and is open every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 345 South Melrose Dr.

Vista Night Out

The newest arts, culture, and food event, Vista Night Out, will take place on Sept. 28 in Downtown Vista at 6 p.m. From the art walk to culinary demos, a brewery workshop, makers marketplace, and live music, it’s sure to be a night to remember.
