Fresh fish, an assortment of vegetables, unique sauces and mouth-watering organic Mojitos are just a few of the things you will find at A Taste of Summer, San Diego’s sustainable food movement.
We always miss out on San Diego food tasting events because we don’t read the paper or watch the tube. We tend to learn about these the same day of the event and it’s either sold out or we have other plans.
This particular event took place inside the McMillin Event Center in Point Loma. The building and outdoor patio were both lined with booths from participating restaurants and sponsors. The first booth we hit had refreshing organic Mojitos to offer.
We washed down our Mojitos with seared Ahi samplers, fresh whole-fish, ceviche, flavorful salads, organic vegetable rolls and pork smothered in a sweet sauce and topped with cilantro. Fortunately, we didn’t wait until later to try the mini-cupcakes. They were gone within two hours from the start of the event.
“Restaurants use massive amounts of energy and water, they ship products in from all over the world, and they generate tremendous amounts of food and packaging waste. We help restaurants reduce the negative impacts made through this process, while increasing the positive ones.”
If you want to stay up to date on future events put on by The Positive Plate, you can follow them on Facebook.
We received two complimentary tickets to this event, however, we were not asked to write a favorable review. As always, our thoughts and opinions are our own.
Tasting food is one of our favorite things to do while traveling. We are looking forward to our next trip to New York so we can experience a food tour in this magical city. We are already looking into New York apartments to rent during our stay.
