While San Diego is known for outstanding fish tacos and craft beer, the cuisine scene offers so much more. That’s what inspired our Global Cuisine feature story for the November issue and our first-ever World Eats Party. Over 400 attendees came to indulge in contemporary art and global cuisine, making the night a big success.
First, we should tell you that SDM staffers love two things – eating and exploring San Diego. This event was a natural blend of both. Similar to the various tastes at the event, each team member was excited to attend for different reasons. Here are the top 5 reasons we booked our calendars to celebrate at World Eats:
1. DIVERSE LINEUP OF RESTAURANTS
19 restaurants offered various ethnic cuisine that transported you around the globe in one bite.
2. ABILITY TO TASTE NEW DISHES OR RESTAURANTS WE NORMALLY WOULDN’T BE BRAVE ENOUGH TO TRY
It can be hard to commit to a new exotic menu item or restaurant when the regular choice is a safe and delicious bet.
3. FOOD WAS THE FOCUS, NOT JUST AN ACCOMPANYING ELEMENT
An event is only as good as its food. That’s why we put it first for the highest quality communal dining experience.
4. UNIQUE URBAN SETTING
Culture is the combination of many elements. The Museum of Contemporary Art as a venue provided the visual aspect of culture and entertainment in between dishes.
5. CELEBRATING DIFFERENT CULTURES AND BACKGROUNDS IN A TIME WHERE DIVISIVENESS IS A STRONG SUBJECT IN OUR COUNTRY
We aren’t political, but we are advocates for togetherness. We were excited to highlight and honor the local culture within our diverse San Diego community.
After attending World Eats, we have even more reasons to go again next year. We hope you do too!
