Carla and Linda run a food walking tour company based here in Oceanside Shoesandchews.com . They started it up in 2015 and they have now expanded to 3 routes North Oceanside, The Heart of Oceanside, and South Oceanside.
The tours run around 3 hours and in addition to eating at the best local spots, they do a great job of giving historical and sightseeing info between stops.
I recently attended a special tour where local restaurant owners, chefs, and wanna be writers got together for a little rainy day adventure.
The group in between stops in artist’s alley.
First stop was Petite Madeline Bakery & Bistro
Chef Marc going over his desserts…yes we started with dessert.
A great dense chocolate cake and tart. A generious serving leading to quite a few to go boxes.
Next up we hit 608
Chef Willy provided a number of dishes including this Bone Marrow Ceviche.
Next up was Harney Sushi where we split some seaweed salad and a number of their signature rolls.
The fun thing was how much of a social event the walks are. I knew the majority of the people on mine but even if you didn’t you would still have blast socializing.
Our final stop was Barrel Republic where we had one of the signature flatbreads.
I would highly recommend taking one. You get a lot of food for the money and it is a great way to try multiple places you may have been wanting to check out.
