The season of food tastings is upon us. All kinds of San Diego neighborhoods have an event this summer to show off the dining choices in their respective area. Living in Kensington, I love the Taste of Adams, but I've also heard rave reviews about Taste Of Hillcrest and the one happening this weekend, The Taste of Gaslamp.
I think tastings should be in the $10-$15 range, rationalizing that if I'm gonna spend $25 on food for just me, I'd rather not look like a vulture scavenging for the last piece of chicken or waiting for someone to offer me a shrimp.
That said, with the caliber of restaurants that have sprung in the downtown area to feed all those people who can afford homes that cost $1000 a square foot, maybe $25 isn't too bad to sample cuisine from places like The Ocean Room, Lou & Mickey's, Rama and JSix among many others.
