Tickets are only $30 per person per day.

Our first visit to Taste of Hillcrest! We got there about 15 minutes before the start of the event but took a little more time than expected to find parking.

Hillcrest is one of those neighborhoods that have so much to offer... and here's a perfect way to test-drive one of those perks... the food!

This weekend, come out for Taste of Hillcrest, which will be held Saturday, April 21, 2012 between noon to 4:00 PM.

As stated on their website:

Taste of North Park 2011 continued from part 1...

Taste of North Park 2011 - Veg N Out veggie burger

Veg N' Out - This slider was different than the vegetarian patties you find at the grocery store, and the onions were cooked a slight bit raw.

Taste of North Park 2011 - Eddie's Philadelphia philly sandwich

Eddie's Philadelphia Steaks - We selected the beef with american cheese sample.  The meat was slightly underseasoned but the bread had a nice toasty feeling in our mouths.  I like when philly sandwiches aren't overly cheesy and greasy yet still have a decent taste.

I've heard so many good things about the food in North Park so when our schedule suddenly cleared up that day, we ventured to test out this theory.  Taste of North Park 2011 was held on Saturday Oct. 8 from 11am-4pm. Between the generous five hours and the proximity of most restaurants, we were able to sample all 46 locations!

If you missed part 1, here is the link.

At this point, we were almost halfway through the restaurants for our Taste of Downtown San Diego 2011 journey. I'm not sure exactly when they removed the Little Italy restaurants but it makes the trip a lot easier to hit more restaurants in such a short amount of time!
