Dining, SFoodie All Buzz, No Crash With Il Morso

All Buzz, No Crash With Il Morso

It sounds crass even to laugh at it now by way of condemnation, but in the 1970s and '80s, there was an appetite-suppressing confection, or "reducing chocolate," called Ayds. That's right: Get yourself some Ayds, and the pounds will just…

EAT THIS: Nitrogen-Cold Popcorn at Jasper’s Corner Tap

Smitten Ice Cream famously uses liquid nitrogen to make its scoop-at-a-time ice cream. (Founder Robyn Sue Fisher won’t divulge every last secret about her method, but that nitrogen has to be colder than -230 degrees Fahrenheit, or it would boil…

EAT ME: Central Station Deli's "The Don"

I’ve made my peace with the fact that $10 is now about as cheap as a decent (non-banh mi) sandwich is going to be. It’s depressing to think of 10 bucks as the floor for the quintessential lunch option,…

Food is Foreplay at Our Gourmet Life Erotic Dinners

Dinner parties can be a stuffy affair, particular when none of the guests know anyone beyond the person with whom they came. As we all know, a good way to break the ice is to have servers gently caress diners,…

Eat This: Pupusas at Liquor Express & Deli in the Richmond

Last week, I discovered that delicious pupusas could be found right in my own neighborhood in the Richmond, and in a small nondescript liquor store (Liquor Express & Deli) no less. The Richmond District blog reports that the owners are new.…

Dining, SFoodie What to Eat at Treasure Island Music Festival

What to Eat at Treasure Island Music Festival

Granted, it's not known for its food like its younger sibling Outside Lands — to my frustration, a list of food vendors isn't included on the paper program — but the Treasure Island Music Festival isn't 100 percent about music.…

The Flavor of Afghanistan in the Bay Area

Not all of us are blessed with wallets full of VC money, which can make semiannual foreign trips out of the question. Fortunately for us moderate-income folks, people from foreign countries come to the Bay Area, and they bring their…

Old School San Francisco: Alfred’s Steakhouse

Walking into Alfred’s Steakhouse on Merchant Street is like entering a time capsule. Only instead of worthless baseball cards, you’re transported back to a time when San Francisco was an industry town full of toughs who came to places…

Eat This: Miso and Cream Cheese Salad at FuseBOX

It’s a funny thing to go to a place that consistently gets such high praise as West Oakland’s FuseBOX — cue The Who, because sorry, the name always makes me think of Squeezebox — and come out raving about a salad.…

Eat This: Garlic Bread at the Old Clam House

The Old Clam House is classic San Francisco. In fact, it’s one of the oldest restaurants in the city, having been established in 1861 along what was once the edge of the Bay. Yet when people think of quintessential…

Eat This: Croissant and a Cortado at Grand Coffee in the Mission

Grand Coffee was opened in 2010 by Nabeel Silmi, a former bartender who has worked in restaurants like Foreign Cinema, Rose Pistola, and Oakland's now-shuttered Hibiscus. Located on Mission in between 22nd and 23rd Streets, you get the eclectic mix…

Eat This: Raviolo al Uovo (And More) at Plin

Like any artist, chefs most definitely don’t want to be tied down by a “signature” dish. They want to continually channel their extensive inner creativity and be known as much more than just the mastermind of this particular plate.…

Eat This: Coxinhas at Rio California in Oakland

Fact: Rio California in downtown Oakland serves up some of the tastiest Brazilian fare you can get in the Bay Area. Furthermore, that statement was not made lightly or even relative to the fact that there's a scarcity of…

You Definitely Want Mandalay Food at Wanna-E Food Truck

Most dishes served by the Wanna-E Mandalay food truck appear completely unfinished, a little like the infamous avant-garde “cake batter” dessert by Kaley Laird at Union Square’s Aveline. Everything is compartmentalized and not brought together yet. Salads and noodles…

Treat Yourself to Some Incredible Panna Cotta at Acquolina

There is a new Italian restaurant in the least surprising of neighborhoods. With its wood, tile and communal table, Acquolina, just off of Columbus Ave. in North Beach, looks more like an industrial-lite café on Divis than the tricolore-festooned…

Craftsman and Wolves' McMuffin-esque Breakfast Sandwich

I’m in the “everything in moderation” camp when it comes to fast food. But I need to set parameters for myself — I can’t rely solely on willpower. In-N-Out? Only on road trips. Popeye’s? Only when drunk on Thursdays after…
