I still remember attending my first Taste of Hillcrest a few years back. I was a kid in the candy store on a mission: try to sample as many restaurants as possible before I spontaneously combust. I think I got to about thirty different places that day. The 15th Annual Taste of Hillcrest is right around the corner on Saturday, April 18th from noon to 4:00pm. There will be over 40 different food vendors featured! How many great eats will you get your hands on? Check out the list below for all the vendors signed up so far.…

Lainey Gaura, manager and Executive Chef was there to be our guide as she prepared various food items while we sat down and sampled many of their fresh organic juices they offer.…

French Concession (Hillcrest)

French Concession (Hillcrest)

I heard about a new Dim Sum style restaurant opening in Hillcrest and when we got invited to French Concession, Michael and I perked up with the thought of better Dim Sum in San Diego.  French Concession is on 5th Ave. where the old Celadon used to be.  To be honest, we’re a little snobby when it comes to Dim Sum.  Any San Diego restaurant serving Dim Sum is immediately compared to their competition over 100 miles away in San Gabriel.  Could French Concession fill the void for excellent Dim Sum in San Diego?…
