Santee Chamber of Commerce
By the East County Eater
December 10, 2013 (Santee) -- The Santee Chamber of Commerce hosted its 26th annual Taste of Santee at Union Bank on December 5. The place was packed for this popular event, which was free for guests who brought a new toy or food item for Santee Santas.
Fifteen restaurants, breweries and wineries brought their best stuff. The food was delicious. Olive Garden brought its signature lasagna and salad with creamy Italian dressing. Pinnacle Peak came to let everyone know they are still around and intend to relocate in a year or so (following an impending land sale); they just may be the last genuine, mesquite grilled steak-house in town. The Manzanita Brewery unveiled its coffee brewed Ale. he brew had a hint of rich coffee bean flavor that made me think how natural it was to roast hops, barley and coffee beans together to make beer.
