Del Mar Highlands Town Center is getting a major food infusion this year. In addition to the Sky Deck, a stand-alone, two-level restaurant collective filled with 13 distinct eateries that are bringing pizza, sushi, ramen, Thai, Mexican food, and more to the complex later this spring, a complementary lineup of new restaurant tenants are moving into the main storefronts in the Carmel Valley center.

In the middle of the mall, Iceskimo has now opened the third location of its Taiwanese-style shaved ice, made in-house in small batches. This outpost also features soft-serve ice cream flavored with high-grade Uji Matcha. It’ll be joined there by Ceviche Craft, which expands from Chula Vista with a fast-casual menu of build-your-own ceviche bowls based on seafood marinated in Peruvian leche de tigre or Baja-style cocktail sauce.

Out on the far end near Rite Aid will be another branch of the Bay Area’s Ike’s Love & Sandwiches along with Micheline’s Pita House, a local Mediterranean chain with stores in La Jolla and Solana Beach, and Xin Chao, a brand new restaurant specializing in Vietnamese cuisine.

And landing near the Sky Deck is Breakers Coffee + Wine, a cafe and wine bar from a San Marcos coffee farm that will serve coffee and wine flights as well as small plates. All the incoming eateries are currently scheduled to open by May 2021.
