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.

On the Map


Peruvian Palate

Discover a taste of Peru at Pisco Rotisserie & Cevicheria, which opened a Carlsbad location this year. The restaurant on Avenida Encinas offers a blend of modern cuisine, indigenous ingredients, and cooking techniques.


Farmers Market Freeze

The State Street Farmers Market recently welcomed Cabetos Pops to the weekly lineup. Cabetos Pops uses fresh fruit and pure cane sugar to craft ice pops and seven flavors of hand-made ice cream. Head downtown every Wednesday from 3 to 7 p.m. for the market’s summer hours.

Fare & Festivity


Baseball Bites

Padres fans have new options for satisfying their mid-game munchies this season, with two San Diego favorites adding ballpark locations. Buona Forchetta offers simply delicious Italian fare from Neapolitan pizza to gelato. Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill will open one stand serving fish tacos and sandwiches and a second stand with an expanded menu of fresh, local seafood.
