In today’s episode of the Happy Half Hour, hosts Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson along with producer Archana Ram are talking restaurant news, including Herb & Wood’s new brunch, an Indian-Chinese spot now open in Mira Mesa, and Pokirrito’s Impossible Sushi Burrito made with the Impossible Burger. Plus, we’re sharing all the details about a contest we’re hosting with Puesto, where your personal taco recipe could land on Puesto’s menu. Get all the info here—submit by March 31!

This week’s guest is Jorge Farfan from Lolita’s, the local restaurant chain that’s celebrating 34 years in business. After launching in Chula Vista, they’ve since opened five more locations, with each son running a location and their sister on board as company president. Jorge gives the scoop on how the family-owned and -operated business came to be, which family members still work there, and how their father still comes in at 5 a.m. every day to cook. Best of all, he reveals something about his family tree that blows all of our minds.

We end with Two People/$50, including Monello, Harumama, Blue Water, Family House of Pancakes, and Malahat.
