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

Vista’s recently established 508 Tavern won this year’s Golden Fork award, and their Korean tacos are quickly becoming North County’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.
