Tawla


It was approaching Christmas, and I had a fellow foodie friend coming back to the bay area for the holidays. Last time she came over the 4th of July, we didn’t manage to meet up, so we really wanted to get together and have a great meal. My first thought was Mister Jiu’s, but unfortunately for me, they’re still quite…

Homage


The financial district in San Francisco is such a strange area. Monday to Friday the place is abuzz with people, and honestly, some fairly decent restaurants. Once the weekend hits, the place becomes a bit of a ghost town with block after block of closed store fronts. I do get it I suppose, they get a lot of business from…

The Great Burger Hunt — Part 5


Welcome back to The Great Burger Hunt! Back in Part 4, none of the burgers could defeat the amazing Black Sands Burger, but will any of these burgers be on top? This time, it’s burgers from Prather Ranch American Eatery, Epic Steakhouse and Gaspar. 1. Prather Ranch American Eatery I see this small eatery in the Ferry Building every time…

Craftsman and Wolves


When I was living in the UK, I angered many a people with my opinion about the cakes there. They were always quite dry and sickly sweet. (And they always thought I was full of it as I’m an American.) I mean yes, sometimes cakes here can be that way, but on the whole, I think bakers here just have…

Deli Board


Sandwiches. They are HUGE in the UK (Huge as in popular, not huge as in massive). Every grocery store has a massive selection of them every day, prepackaged and ready for a quick grab for lunch. Plus, they aren’t boring like most sandwiches in the US. Who doesn’t want a Coronation Chicken sandwich? Or prawn cocktail or cheese and onion?…

The Slanted Door


Since moving to San Francisco, The Slanted Door was on our list of places to go. However, whenever I looked at the menu, the price point did always lead me to think that maybe it would be better for dinner. There was a time that we almost went for lunch when I had a friend visiting from London, but last…

Rooh


Rooh has been on my list for awhile now. We accidentally walked in one Saturday afternoon trying to get a drink, and they weren’t open yet, but it looked like a cool venue, so I was intrigued. Then it started popping up on all “the lists” around San Francisco about how all this amazing, contemporary Indian food is now around…

Saiwalks


I do have a bit of a soft spot for any sort of Asian food, and Asian “street” food is becoming incredibly popular (and tasty) all over the world. So when I was spending a day with a friend in the Marina, we decided to walk over and give Saiwalks a try. Saiwalks is Vietnamese street food, and I imagine…

The Great Burger Hunt — Part 4


It’s time to see if there is a burger out there to beat the top burger from round three of my great burger hunt. The current best is the burger from Black Sands Brewery. Can it be beaten? This time, I tried the burger from Wayfare Tavern, ABV and The Burger Bar. I’ve also decided to rank the burgers from…
