Green Chile Kitchen

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..

Nopalito

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..
Around Austin

Around Austin

We had a whirlwind trip to Austin this past September.  We were looking at potentially moving there, so we looked at real estate, and we ate and drank like crazy!!! We managed to get into Vespaio’s, a wildly popular Italian restaurant near where my friend Amy lives.  Amy told us..

Mojito San Francisco

When at the Ferry Plaza Farmers’ Market in San Francisco, we like to enjoy the wonderful Mexican food at Mojito San Francisco, Tracy DesJardin’s place. (She now also has one at AT&T Park.) Tracy DesJardins grew up in the Central Valley and had a childhood exposed to Mexican cuisine. So,..

La Taqueria

When I moved from LA in 1994, I took for granted that Mexican restaurants were just plain good. Rarely would you find a bad one. In San Francisco, rarely do you find a really good one. My friend, Ricardo from Texas, who used to live in San Francisco, told me..

Tito’s Tacos – Los Angeles

The best late night study break we ever had when I was attending UCLA was a trip to Tito’s Tacos. There is always a line at this place. Whenever I’m in the Washington Blvd. and 405 area, I try to make it back to Tito’s Tacos. I order their beef..
