San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 8

A beer-themed hotel, new burgers in North Park, and Carnitas' Snack Shack chef-owner Hanis Cavin stops by

By Archana Ram

This week hosts Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson and producer Archana Ram share all the latest in dining and drinking news, like an extravagant new brunch experience at Hotel del Coronado, and Dunedin, a grass fed burger spot that’s landed in North Park. And did you hear about the new Stone Brewing Co. hotel opening in Escondido? We share all the details about the $26 million project being built with Untitled Hospitality.

Joining us for the show is Hanis Cavin, chef and owner of Carnitas’ Snack Shack, which just opened a third location, this time along the Embarcadero—in what Troy calls “the Brad Pitt of restaurant locations.” Cavin also delves into his San Diego restaurant resume, which includes time working alongside Troy at Kensington Grill.

Plus, a shout-out to a classic Italian restaurant on El Cajon Boulevard, why you need to visit Trust in Hillcrest, and a South Park spot with one of the city’s best beverage selections.
