San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 105

Pop Pie Co.’s new ice cream venture, a holiday event heading to Polite Provisions, and Sam The Cooking Guy makes us tacos


Published:

On today’s show, Erin, Troy and Archana are talking Hot Plates, including Pop Pie Co.’s new ice cream shop landing next month in University Heights, a new ramen spot in Kearny Mesa, a long-awaited holiday event coming to Polite Provisions, and more.

In the guest seat is Sam “The Cooking Guy” Zien, the former biotech-er turned cooking show host, cookbook author, Emmy winner, and founder of Not Not Tacos at the new Little Italy Food Hall. He talks about why a “Jewish white kid from Canada” can make the classic Mexcian dish, answers reader questions, and tells us about that time he and Troy were on a bomb-threatened plane.

Today’s hot topic is about Seattle’s Pike Place Fish Market being sold to its own longtime employees. Discuss!

We end with Two People/$50, including Queenstown Public House, Civico 1845, Born & Raised, and Masala Street La Jolla.
