Business Roundup: Poway gets brewery, Burma Place opens in Rancho Bernardo, closes fitness center


Poway gets his second brewery.

Little Miss Brewing unveils its seventh taproom in the San Diego area with a smooth opening for guests this weekend. The tasting room, which is located in the former Lappert’s ice cream shop on Scripps Trident Plaza, will open to the public next week.

Little Miss will brew special beer only available at the Poway site and serve a variety of options brewed at Miramar headquarters, said Greg Malkin, director of operations.

Malkin said he and his wife, owner Jade Mishner, initially considered opening tasting rooms in areas like Ocean Beach. But then they decided to go for places “other than where everyone else is already going,” he said.

Poway is the perfect fit, with most breweries over 15 minutes away, Malkin said. Poway’s first brewery – Lightning Brewing – opened in 2006.

“It was a goal to find a beer desert,” he said.

Malkin’s favorite beer among the brewery’s beers is also one of the most popular – Fog of War. It’s a yeast-based, hoppy misty IPA.

Kettle sisters are also fan favorites, he said.

Last year, the brewery’s dark beer won a gold medal at the San Diego International Festival. Her Irish red won a bronze medal at the event.

Little Miss will have some food at Angry Pete’s Pizza, which serves a Detroit-style deep dish

“The pizza is good. And it’s a good relationship, ”said Malkin.

“If you don’t like pizza, more power for you, bring whatever you want,” he said as he looked at the shopping mall’s other dining options at 12265 Scripps Poway Parkway.

The location offers patio seating.

“It’s a good place. I really like this place, ”said Malkin as he sat at an outdoor table in the center. “At night the parking lot is great.”

Each of the seven Little Miss faucet rooms is decorated with a WWII theme and decorated in a military decor. The valve rooms each showcase a different ally of the United States. Poway will be Poland. Miramar’s head office and production facility are American-style.

The brasserie will be open Monday to Thursday from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from noon to midnight and from noon to 9 p.m. on Sunday. Dogs and well behaved children are allowed, said Malkin.

“We cater to adults and drink, but we are family friendly,” he said.

An official inauguration will take place in March.

On Wednesday, a new dining option opened at Rancho Bernardo – Burma Place in The Plaza.

The non-chain, family-owned business offers Burmese cuisine, which combines many flavors found in Indian, Chinese and Thai cuisine, according to one of the owners, Raymond Thant.

What sets Burmese food apart is that with its wide variety of flavors – including spicy, sweet, sweet and coconut – there is something that will appeal to the tastes of all who enter, Thant said.

Burma Place has taken over the space of the former Greek restaurant Pegasus Cafe.

Thant and the other owners have worked together for quite some time – they have owned a similar restaurant in the San Francisco Bay Area for many years. They closed that restaurant and moved with their families to San Diego to open a new restaurant, Thant said.

In addition to Thant, who said he has worked in the restaurant industry for about nine years, the owners include chefs Sai Htay and Sai Win. Restaurant manager Manual Rios also made the trip.

After reviewing multiple locations, the owners chose the Rancho Bernardo space because it has plenty of free parking and is in a family-friendly community, Thant said.

“A lot of families live here. I want this to be their favorite place, ”he said.

Burma Place offers a number of dishes ranging from $ 10.99 to $ 17.99. A menu can be viewed on its website,

Burma Place, at 6719 Bernardo Center Drive, Unit A, offers walk-in service, reservations and take out. Hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for lunch and 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. for dinner seven days a week. The phone number is 626-663-1008.

Closure of Chuze Fitness Rancho Bernardo

Those looking to get back in shape in 2022 have one less place in Rancho Bernardo where they can achieve their goals.

Chuze Fitness Rancho Bernardo closed its doors on December 22, according to a sign on its door. It was in downtown Rancho Bernardo.

According to the posted message, “The pandemic has created many difficult situations for many industries, and we have also been negatively affected. We have done everything we can to stay open and continue to provide the cleanest, friendliest gym to members, but unfortunately had to make the difficult decision to close our doors after 10 years of service to the community.

He also stated that “Chuzers” who exclusively used the RB location would have their membership agreement revoked without further action necessary. In addition, their December dues would be prorated.

Chuze Fitness has six other gyms in San Diego County where memberships can be transferred. A seventh site was due to open in Encinitas in late December, according to the post.
