Central Kitchen and Trick Dog I walk by Central Kitchen and Trick Dog on the way to the Giants day games. Central Kitchen is a beautiful space, and I’ve been dying to go. I went to Trick Dog when it first opened, and with a little time before our reservation,..
It might be just me, but I’ve always thought that Chile is a country, and chili is something you eat. Green Chile Kitchen makes me completely wrong. I’ve been wanting to go to Green Chile Kitchen since they opened nine years back. The restaurant is at McAllister and Baker, making it GU..
Us locals don’t normally hang out at Fisherman’s Wharf, but there are a few spots that you will always see locals. The Buena Vista Cafe is one of those. Home to the original and finest Irish Coffee on the planet, and that’s just for starters. The wait staff has been..
This is my second lunch at Coqueta. The first was SO good that I couldn’t bring myself to take pictures or write notes. Sometimes when food is that good, it could very well disappoint later. But that wasn’t the case at Coqueta. My friend, Debbie, and I had a fine..
Hello Friends – You haven’t heard from me in more than 90 days. That’s because I’ve been on the road with the hub and my two beautiful black labs in our Airstream Interstate. We’ve had the most wonderful time, but tomorrow at 6:30am, I board a United flight from Portland..

We met our real estate agent on the way out of town to the Sonoma Coast. Fridays are tough Marin and Sonoma traffic, so it’s best to get out of town early. By the way, what the heck is with the gridlock traffic in San Francisco? It appears you can’t..
Aaahhh Nopalito. I’ve been dying to go there ever since they opened. Nopa is still one of the hottest tickets in town, and I haven’t been there either. But when the Nopa owners decided to open Nopalito based on one of their chefs preparing Mexican food for their staff and..
I’ve been a huge fan of Koi Palace in South San Francisco for the entire time since my Honolulu restaurant owner/buddy, Russell Siu, turned us on to it years ago. It’s best to go to dim sum with a large group of people. That way, you can enjoy WAY more..
I love attending the Winter Fancy Food Show, held every January at Moscone Center by the Specialty Foods Association. Taking up Moscone’s North AND South Halls, there’s so much to see and eat. There’s over 80,000 food items and more than 1300 exhibitors over the three-day show. You have..
