Neighbor Bakehouse: Sauerkraut Smoked Cheddar Peppadew Tart

Last weekend my friend introduced me Neighbor Bakehouse, in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco. We met up at her place and walked over. Let me preface this by saying that I had never heard of it before and had zero expectations about where we were going. It’s small. No seating inside. You can see […]

Coffee Bar SF: Latte

Whenever I’m in the Mission/Potrero area I always stop by Coffee Bar. It’s over on Bryant and Mariposa, and this place has great coffee, great food, and it’s a really nice place to work. Parking in this neighborhood can suck super hardcore but if you get there early in the morning or drive around for […]


Nopalito: Carnitas and Totopos con Chile

Went to Nopalito for lunch, haven’t been back to this place in a long time (not because I don’t like it, but because I’m rarely in the area). If you haven’t been, it’s good, and right at the end of the panhandle across from the DMV. It’s a very nice place with modernized, glorified Mexican […]

So I went… and ordered the French dip, which is made with thinly sliced beef brisket. Holy shitake this sandwich is simply a gift […]

It’s very small inside… Here’s the ice cream selection. I ordered white pepper chocolate chip.  Originally I ordered it in a cup but then I saw the waffle […]

Geta Sushi: Spicy Tuna Roll, Shrimp Tempura Maki

Geta is my favorite sushi joint in the entire SF Bay Area. I know that is saying a lot… but it’s true. If you haven’t been, Geta is a tiny little Japanese restaurant that only has a few tables inside, and a very small little sushi bar. It is very reasonably priced (cheap), the fish […]

La Note: Omelette de Fromage et Jambon

I’ve been eating brunch at La Note in Berkeley for the past 5 years, since I moved to the East Bay. This place was always popular, but now it’s kind of insane. We thought we were going to early beat the rush by arriving at 8:30am (last Saturday), but there was already a 30 minute wait, […]
