In this week’s podcast, San Diego Magazine’s Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson pop open some beer (AleSmith Pale Ale .394 for him, Mike Hess Orange Honey Wheat for her) to chat about the most buzzy dining and drinking news of the week.
In Hot Plates, we’re talking openings, closings, and rumors, like the cut-throat competition Carnitas’ Snack Shack endured to earn a coveted spot on the Embarcadero for their newest location. Fun fact: Troy once worked with Carnitas’ chef-owner Hanis Cavin at Kensington Grill. (Listen at 2:58 for the details.)
Also in our half hour chat, we welcome San Diego Magazine senior art director Corey Hollister to talk food styling secrets, and our crew debates the use of burger-flipping robots. Plus, our weekly installment of Side Dish, with Two People–$50, The Best Thing I Ate This Week, Liquid Courage, and more.
