In the heart of the finest city in America is a piece of Italy, full of exotic flavors, unique in its class.
On Wednesday June 20th, took place The Taste Of Little Italy, with the best in dining, entertainment and a great atmosphere.
Around 30 restaurants opened their doors so you could taste the variety that every day serve their customers with great pride and passion.
In Little Italy we find a variety of flavors, we ate pizza and pasta, very tasty indeed, but also we took a small detour in South America, we find an amazing Argentinian restaurant (Puerto la Boca) with the best beef and chimichurri we tested, also the most delicious ceviche we tasted in the Peruvian restaurant (Indigo Grill).
The fusion food, frozen yogurt, coffee shops, also were present, the most prestigious Italian restaurants, proving once again that this is one of the best streets to awaken your palate to the most incredible meals. Seeing how night approached, I ran with incredible characters, markets and butcher shops that can not fail to be absent from this beautiful place.
I invite you to come to San Diego and visit the not so small Litlle Italy, full of variety, kindness, warmth and good food served with great pleasure day by day.
