{san diego} a bite of north park, stop 1

June 30, 2015

Recently I went on a food tour with Bite San Diego, the North Park one. Their website boasts that “We’re Bite San Diego, America’s Finest City’s food tour company. Join us on our adventures inside the restaurants that have impacted San Diego’s culinary scene. We will lead you on an exploration of the history, roots and reasons San Diego is becoming a food mecca for locals and world travelers alike.” We were able to take in interesting North Park sites as well as sample some of the best the neighborhood has to offer.

Not only is North Park the oldest neighborhood in San Diego, it used to be a wilting lemon grove and is home to the oldest operating Chinese laundromat in the city. It’s also home to many a historic bungalow, which makes the architecture in the area unique.

Stop 1 was Splash Wine Lounge & Bistro, which was voted “Best Wine Bar in San Diego” last year. This spot has over 100 wines from around the world. We tried the flatbread and tour patrons were welcome to purchase wine from the dispensers. The flatbread was quite fresh and delicious.
