This is a sampling of my favorite photos I took this past weekend in San Diego for a second food blog collaboration with @grannywordsmithapples, who blogs regularly at My Baby Loves Bacon on Wordpress about sugar-free & keto recipes, and lucky for all of us, “Taste of” events! . . .

I flew out in June from KC to see her family and attend my first Taste of (Adams Avenue), and we had already made plans for me to return this October to document #TasteofNorthPark. She writes, I photograph. Go visit her Instagram for all the rest of the posts (including descriptions of the above taste samples). We made it to 40 restaurants (!) out of 44 available on the main ticket, and some in our group made it to several of the ~15 places on the drink ticket option, too. . . .

Even though we were stuffed to the bursting point, we couldn’t resist the piping-hot, delicious phở served at Shank and Bone (@shankandbone). With beef brisket, paper-thin onion slices, aromatics, rich bone broth, and rice noodles, it was a contender for one of the top tastes at TONP, and perfect as the final bite for most of our party.  Plus, the name of the restaurant is just cool. We will be back! . . . .

Swami’s (@swamisnorthpark) offered their açai smoothies as their sample, and after a long day of walking, the smoothie was refreshing, light, and just the right consistency (not too thick, and not too soupy.) I would definitely go back -- it seems like it would make a perfect, healthy on-the-go breakfast after a weekend workout. . . . .

As the time for wrapping up Taste of North Park for 2018 drew near, Olivia (co-author of our recap blog post) was determined to not miss the cheese offering at Venissimo Cheese (@venissimo.northpark) when our group moved the opposite direction on University Street, dashing off to sample a classic pairing of Midnight Moon cheese, served straight from the cheese wheel, with fig jam. . . . .

Although by that time in our journey we were absolutely too stuffed to try it, Encontro’s (@encontronorthpark) offering looked fresh and delicious: Ahi Tuna Poke Tostarito, with Sriracha Aioli, garnished with fresh chives. .

Urban Solace is one of our favorite restaurants (the biscuits with tomato jam are sensational, and the “kitchen sink” dish with biscuits, gravy and sausage is one of the great breakfasts in San Diego), but we felt that their offering for TONP this year was one of the event’s few misses. We did eat the sample near the end of the day, which may have contributed, but the pork belly beignets with whiskey maple sauce sounded so delicious and fell short of our expectations. The dough was very undercooked, oddly salty, and the sauce didn’t necessarily go with the dish. While ambitious to prepare and fry the beignets on-the-spot, I’m not sure it really worked. . . . .

The lines at True North Tavern (@truenorthtavern) during TONP are always long, and this year was no exception. We stopped by later in the day when the very heavy traffic was finally subsiding, and enjoyed a sample of one of their specialties: tots drowning in house-made cheese sauce, a refreshing corn and red pepper mild salsa, and a chipotle aioli. . . . .

All of the pizza offered during TONP was good, but our favorite was served at Mr. Moto’s Pizza (@mrmotopizza). Incidentally, the portions were also most generous there, with several different options. I had a slice with torn mozzarella, mini meatballs, and italian sausage, with red sauce, as well as a slice of chicken and bacon pizza with homemade ranch, carmelized onions, and garlic paste. Others in our party enjoyed the chicken pesto pizza, too, and everybody commented on the chewy crust. . . . .

We always look forward to the waffles at Atypical Waffle (@atypicalwaffle), formerly Wow Wow Waffle, and once again this year they didn’t disappoint. Their liege waffle with pearl sugar was served with a choice of either homemade vanilla whipped cream, or hazelnut nutella. Olivia (co-author of our recap blog post) was so tempted by their drinks that she hung back from the rest of the group to order a nitro-infused strawberry lemonade, which was thirst-quenching and refreshing. . . . .

Dunedin New Zealand Eats (@dunedinsd) had a cheery stand with a comforting vat of turkey chili, with creamy white beans, chopped red onion and multicolored chips. It was a generous serving and the staff was friendly and engaging.  We saw quite a few families enjoying themselves in the outdoor seating with the fire features, and it looked like an enjoyable place to try in the future. . . . .

Among the more inventive and unusual bites of the day, Underbelly (@underbelly_np) served a fried seafood ball with takoyaki octopus - (grilled - yaki in Japanese), and ginger and cabbage inside. It was hot, freshly-fried, and drizzled with spicy mayo and okonomiyaki (their sweet Japanese barbecue sauce). . . . .

We were so looking forward to trying Cardamom Bakery, since we’ve heard so much good about it, but unfortunately they had to back out of participation in Taste of North Park at the last minute due to a death in the family. We wish them well and look forward to visiting the Bakery next year during TONP ‘19! . . . .

The staff at Aburi Sushi (@aburi_sushi) was especially welcoming, and they gave us generous servings of sushi and what I think may have been rice chips, and allowed several of the desperate ladies in our party to use their restrooms (which -- I mean, this is a food Insta, but I have got to say: the restrooms were classy as all get-out, and very nice). . . . .

The staff at The Taco Stand (@letstaco - another last-minute add to the Taste of North Park line-up) was energetic and enthusiastic and the pineapple on these adobada tacos was a nice touch, but the real star of this dish was the corn tortilla, made in front of our eyes! Also, shout-out to the staff, who made a special taco (also pictured) for a member of our group who prefers not to eat pork (“you have to try at least the tortilla!”). . . .

The Smoking Goat (@thesmokinggoatrestaurant) and its sister restaurant One Door North (@onedoornorth - referenced in previous Instagram post) had a joint sample table, which was one of our group’s crowd favorites. The Smoking Goat's contribution was chocolate mousse served in tiny cookie cups, and during an event with surprisingly-few dessert offerings, it was such a welcome change. The mousse was light and fluffy, and the cookie cups were melt-in-your-mouth, adding a textural element that wasn’t too crunchy. . . . .

SOI 30th (@soi30thnorthpark) was new to everyone in our party, and we really enjoyed the surprisingly-spicy basil fried rice, and especially the vegetarian green curry (served over rice). The curry broth was rich, delicious, had just the right balance of spice and sweet, and was chock-full of veggies. . . . .

Waypoint Public (@waypointpublic) is always a family-friendly stop, since they have a play area for young children and market themselves as a welcoming environment for young parents, so we always enjoy our visits. The sample was a unique shredded bbq pork mixed straight into fusilli mac and cheese. . . . .

Coin Op (@coinopsd) was only accessible to those over 21, but half of our party delivered to the strollers plenty of blisteringly-hot, crisply-fried tots with garlic, a sprinkling of parsley, and truffle oil. They were textbook guilty-pleasure tots. The truffle oil was used with a deft hand, and was not overwhelming (as truffle oil is wont to be). . . . .

The award for the most detailed and upscale presentation of the day definitely went to Bivouac Ciderworks (@bivouaccider)! Assembled in front of us, butternut squash polenta was chopped with lamb that had been marinated for two days in a spice mix including garam masala, topped with a pomegranate salad, an herbaceous tzatziki sauce, and micro-greens. It was a joy to watch them serve, flavorful, and almost too pretty to eat. . . . .

Streetcar Merchants (@streetcarmerchants) was a late participant in TONP, and they had two of their signature chicken recipes served in small bite-size servings: nashville hot, and classic fried chicken. The hot recipe was quite spicy, and our party commented that the spice level lingered in their mouths for quite a long time. The classic fried chicken was well-breaded, mild, and flavorsome. . . . .

There were a few mac and cheeses offered this year during TONP, but the garlic and herb three-cheese mac and cheese at Craft House (@crafthouse_northpark) was our favorite. It was simple and done right, although I only got to take two small bites before my two-year-old confiscated the serving cup and my plastic fork, then proceeded to snarl up traffic in North Park by stopping in the middle of a crosswalk to admire and scarf down the mac and cheese, oblivious to the world around her. . . . .

Open only for the last 8 months or so, Working Class (@workingclassnp) replaced the longtime Ritual Kitchen, which closed recently after a decade in North Park. One of the identified vegetarian bites of the day, their General Tso’s Cauliflower (a dish featured from their regular appetizer menu) was delicious: the cauliflower was hearty and toothsome, lightly-breaded, and the sauce a perfect balance between spicy and sweet. It was definitely one of the more interesting, and enjoyable, bites of the day, and it gave me some ideas for future dinner experiments at home. . . . .

No one in our party had been to or heard of 619 Spirits Distillery and Tasting Room (@619spiritsnorthpark) before, but our interest was piqued by the infused vodkas offered. The bite served was filet mignon tartare, served on a crostini, and since raw beef can be a bit polarizing, only about half of our group opted to try. The staff was welcoming and made a point of telling us that the place is always child- and pet-friendly, which is wonderful knowledge for young parents in search of places where their families can go together. . . . .

Crazee Burger (@crazeeburger) always has a great sample for TONP. This year they served a hearty slider on a Hawaiian roll with crisp dill pickles, ripe tomato slices, and add-your-own condiments. Perhaps due to the high volume of sliders, the burger patty was distractingly rare, but it was impossible to fault otherwise, being juicy, flavorful and absolutely fresh. . . . .

Caffé Calabria's (@caffecalabria) inviting ambiance, reminiscent of an outdoor café, indoors, drew us in, leading us to a side room designated for TONP participants to congregate, where three types of pizza were served, as well as two types of coffee (hazelnut and “5 AM Cold Brew”). The coffee-roasting equipment added to the unique environment, along with a display of espresso cups on the wall. . . .

A few people in our party were feeling a bit under-the-weather, and the chicken pozole verde at El Comal (@el_comal_sd) hit the spot! The broth was lightly spicy, made with pumpkin seeds, cilantro, jalapeño, and plenty of spinach, and guests could customize by adding their own onion and cilantro as they wished. They served a generous portion (evidenced by the still partially-full bowls another party left on a railing outside to finish after a subsequent stop), and the hominy and shredded chicken were both well-cooked and seasoned. . . . .

U-31 (@u31sd) was so hospitable to our party (which had four children under 5 years old, carted around in two strollers and two Ergos), by delivering food to those of us young and starving mothers who were stranded outside. (No persons under 21 were allowed into the establishment, due to the strict nature of liquor licenses.) Most of us opted for a fish taco, which was served with corn tortillas, fresh cabbage, a spiced crema, and beer-battered fish, and corn dogs were also offered. . . . .

As anyone who follows me here on Instagram knows, @nomaddonuts is one of my guilty pleasures in San Diego and their house-made Montreal-style Everything Bagels with Bacon Chive Cream Cheese is close to my favorite thing to eat in San Diego. This year at TONP, they offered chewy, yeasty bagels with a jalapeño cheddar cream cheese that was only mildly spicy, and a variety of their signature donuts in mini sizes, with creative flavors. Our party couldn’t get enough -- and why, yes, we actually went in to purchase an extra ube donut on the spot for the kids in our party. . . . .

Although it was only just after 11 AM, we were sure to hit Hammonds (@hammondsicecream) early on our TONP tour, as we knew from experience that the lines always get extremely long, due to Hammonds’ popularity. This year, they offered tasters mini ice cream cones in the flavor of their choice: (Our two-year-old took so long to savor and enjoy hers that it began to melt all over her hands and clothing. Eventually she was eternally devastated when I made the executive parent decision to throw the last, treasured, soupy bite into the trash before she ruined her outfit five minutes into the event. For the rest of the day, she brokenheartedly tattled on me a few dozen times, telling everyone that, “Mama throw my ice cream in trash.” I suspect that it may take a long time to secure her forgiveness for this offense and I’m not sure we’ll ever be able to visit Hammond’s again without her bursting into bitter tears.) . . . .

URBN Coal Fired Pizza (@urbn_northpark) served pizza baked in a square and cut into little rectangles. It was ultra-thin crust, with very light sauce which I immediately spilled on my shirt, and consequently had an URBN souvenir with me for the remainder of the day. . . . .

Tribute Pizza (@tributepizza) was our first stop during TONP, and when we entered the restaurant we were treated to the delicious, yeasty smell of focaccia as it was piping hot and JUST coming out of the oven! The bread was served with a dipping cup of yin-and-yang balsalmic vinegar and excellent-quality olive oil. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and the hot bread couldn’t have been fresher! True comfort food. . . . .

Pot Roast Slider w/Horseradish Sauce @redwingbar

The butter-brushed bun is incredibly light and fresh, the horseradish complements rather than overpowers, and the meat is melt-in-your-mouth, not heavily seasoned, but so tender.

“Ad Amatrice Tortello”. Chef Marco’s “bite” at the #10PerfectBites charity event this weekend organized by @friendlyfeast. This dish is dedicated to Amatrice - a small town in Italy who suffered irreparable earthquake damage over the past few years and that has a big part in our chef’s ❤️ (pc: @urbancell_gastronomy_2.0 )
