Mushroom It With Craft Sandwiches

sandwichThe United States Department of Agriculture has dubbed September as National Mushroom Month… and for a good reason! Mushrooms are full of health benefits, including increased nutrition absorption and bone strength. Celebrate this month by visiting local San Diego restaurants that prove ‘shrooms are extraordinarily-delicious when incorporated into everyday sandwiches!

Encontro is a North Park neighborhood hub focused on craft dishes with authentic ingredients.
