Taste of Mission Hills 2018

Dare we boast? The 7th Annual Taste of Mission Hills was pure perfection. This year’s taste featured 25 venues for $25. Chefs were on hand to personally serve tasters. The trolleys ran perfectly. Those on dates were definitely falling in love with one another and Mission Hills. If you were lucky enough to spend the evening with us, the photos will reignite your palate. Thank you 2018 tasters, bakers, baristas and chefs! Because of you, this event gets better each year.

Taste of Mission Hills is hosted by the Mission Hills Business Improvement District and it is the annual fundraiser for this non-profit organization.

Experience an evening of palate pleasing “tastes” in Mission Hills, one of San Diego’s premiere dining destinations. Our chefs, bakers, and baristas will create preparations sure to captivate your taste buds. From international to local, twenty-five (25) participating purveyors of delicious tastes, including long established and very new arrivals in Mission Hills, will be featured at the 7th Annual Taste of Mission Hills happening on Wednesday, October 10, 2018, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. And, included in the price of each ticket is Old Town Trolley guest transportation to within steps of each participating venue.  The more than 5 mile “taste” route from Ft. Stockton Drive to Goldfinch Street and West Washington Street, and onto Reynard Way and India Street, promise to make the 7th Annual Taste of Mission Hills the best ever!
