Winter Fancy Food Show – Specialty Foods Association

Winter Fancy Food Show – Specialty Foods Association

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..

Katsu-Hama

Katsu-Hama is in Midtown New York at 47th off of 5th Avenue.  I wish I could remember where I read about it.  The article suggested to try the pork cutlet lunch special.  Katsu is pork cutlet, so obviously this restaurant specializes in the Japanese dish. So wow!!!  What a great..

Zeke’s

You know I love dive bars.  Zeke’s is where we almost always go prior to the Giants games at home.  The food and booze is inexpensive, the ambiance of a perfect dive bar with sports broadcasts blaring from all over the venue, and the service is outstanding.  Once the fine..

Benihana

I really wanted to take my friends to Mifune Dun for my recently discovered okonomiyaki (see my Japantown tour article), but Dave was afraid that I might be putting our friends over their limit in terms of unusual and unique food, so we ended up at Benihana in Japantown.  ..

Yakini Q is a Korean BBQ place in Japantown where you cook your own meat.  It is owned, in part, by the brother of the owner of Yakini Q Cafe downstairs where we enjoyed a pumpkin latte on our Japantown tour.  Our friends were in town for the Giants day..

Ichi Sushi + Ni Bar

I really like Ichi Sushi + Ni Bar, a real upgrade from their place up the street.  The Ichi Sushi scene is lively with a fabulous mural on the west wall, different areas for food, and some bouncing music to keep the scene perked up.  Tim and Erin Archuleta are the..

Roy’s Restaurant

Ok, so my Hawaiian friends reading this are gonna say “I told you so”!  Mea culpa!  My lovely veteran bartender friend and party girl, Cheryl, told us to go to Wai’olu Ocean View Lounge on the second floor of the Trump hotel for cocktails and pupus (hors d’oeuvres).  Since we..

Mikado Sushi

After a long day at Sunset Celebration Weekend, we decided to order in, and light fare was what was needed after that amazing burger.  We’ve ordered from Mikado Sushi many times and have always been impressed with the freshness of the food AND the taste, so that’s the call we..

Toss Noodle Bar

I’m attending a ‘Get to Know Your Mind’ class at Dharma College.  More on that later.  My friend and I get to Peet’s about 9:30 for coffee and then head to Dharma College for a 10-11:30am session.  It’s pretty mind boggling, pun intended.  When done, all we want to do..
