San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 113

Fashion Valley gets Mexican food, a mezcal tasting room is opening in Old Town, and the co-founder of Imperfect Produce drops in


Published:

In today’s episode of the Happy Half Hour, Erin, Troy, and Archana are chatting restaurant news, like a new Mexican eatery at Fashion Valley started by the team behind True Food Kitchen and Flower Child. Plus, the mezcal tasting room Tahona is coming to Old Town next month and Common Stock is now open in Hillcrest.

Our guest is Ben Simon, the CEO and co-founder of Imperfect Produce, the produce subscription service that sources “ugly” fruits and vegetables from farms and delivers them to your door. They just launched in San Diego, and Simon tells us how his company is helping cut down food waste, why San Diego was the right city to launch in, and how his food journey started at his college campus dining hall.

In Two People/$50, we’re recommending Wrench & Rodent, Cross Street Chicken and Beer, and Cucina Basilico.

And did you hear? San Diego Magazine has launched its Insiders club, offering exclusive discounts at editor-picked restaurants, bars, spas, and more for just $10 per month. That’s right—it’ll cost you less than happy hour.

Today’s episode is sponsored by North Park Main Street. On Saturday, October 13, the Taste of North Park invites foodies to enjoy more than 50 food tastes from restaurants including Carnitas’ Snack Shack and Urban Pizza, plus sips from 15 craft brewers, like Eppig Brewing and North Park Beer Co.
