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.


Global Flavor

International Smoke, a dining collaboration between award-winning chef Michael Mina and renowned restauranteur Ayesha Curry, officially opened its doors at One Paseo in July. The menu showcases flavorful smoke-infused dishes, diverse spices, traditional live fire cooking techniques, and creative cocktails, as well as vegan options, kid-friendly fare on the Lil Smokey’s menu, and a Fido’s Feast dog menu.
