San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 9

Shark Tank vegan cinnamon rolls, everything you need to know about good coffee, and the virtues of warm beer


Published:

In this week’s podcast, Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson and producer Archana Ram chat about all things new in San Diego’s dining and drinking scene, including vegan cinnamon rolls from Shark Tank and the recently refreshed Craft & Commerce in Little Italy, which includes a tiki bar concept.

Plus, we’re sipping on coffee blends from Best of San Diego winner Cafe Virtuoso with their level 2 certified barista and quality control manager Savannah Britton. She joins us to talk about what high-quality coffee really means, the best kind of coffee grinder to buy, and what goes on at barista camp. Yes, baristas know how to party.

We’re also talking about glimpses of a restaurant recession, why warm beer is sometimes tastier, and the best thing Troy ate this week.
