Enjoy a Taste of Hillcrest This Weekend

By  | 

The 11th annual Taste of Hillcrest event is here again, and this year there’s even more food to sample than ever before.

From 12:00pm to 4:00pm on Saturday you and your friends and family can spend the afternoon sampling the best culinary offerings in Hillcrest. As one of the dining meccas of San Diego, there will be plenty to choose from and tastings will satisfy everyone.

No matter if you’re new to the area or if you’ve been living here your entire life, you’ll discover old, new and soon-to-be favorite restaurants. From cafés and bistros to Five-Star dining, the event will feature enjoy over 50 restaurants. You definitely will not leave the event hungry.

For those new to the “Taste of” concept, the event is a self-guided tour through a neighborhood where you’ll explore the community and the restaurants and shops that call Hillcrest home. While walking from restaurant to restaurant is encouraged (it will help burn off all the calories you’ll be consuming), this year they will be providing a shuttle service for those wanting to escape the warm San Diego sun.

Tickets for the Taste of Hillcrest are $30 dollars in advance and $35 the day of the event. They typically sell out, so make sure to buy early. You can purchase tickets online by visiting www.fabuloushillcrest.com.

Proceeds of this event benefit the Hillcrest Business Association.

San Diego resident for over 10 years, I now call this beautiful city home. Originally from the Bay Area, I'm a California girl at heart. I love the outdoors, fitness, food, and a good craft beer (from San Diego of course).
