This week's episode is brought to you by Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego and their Dream House Raffle. Visit www.sdraffle.com to buy tickets and learn more about the hundreds of prizes! Early Bird deadline is February 22, 2019! 

On this week’s show we meet a new restauranteur with an interesting background that includes a stint at Google.

In Hot Plates, we learn about Fish 101’s plans to expand from Leucadia to a second location with an ocean view in Cardiff. Pro skateboarder Tony Hawk is opening a craft coffee spot with son Riley, serving beans roasted byJames Coffee Co. alongside a vinyl record shop. In other food news, Phil’s BBQ is expanding again and Adams Ave is getting another sushi restaurant. Soichi Kadoya opens in March. For more SD Food News, visit Troy’s blog.

In the guest seat is Alia Jaziri of Medina, a new restaurant in North Park opening March. The menu is rooted in traditional North African dishes Alia grew up cooking with her father, plus classic ingredients from Baja California. Medina began as a food truck concept in San Francisco (thanks to a little help from a Google accelerator) and later evolved and expanded to farmers markets and pop-ups in San Diego. This is the first brick-and-mortar location.
