It’s interesting that until about two-ish weeks ago, I’d never heard the word Arizmendi before. I was in San Francisco this past weekend, staying with friends in the Inner Sunset. We pondered what to do for breakfast. They suggested Arizmendi for pastries, and I’m all: but isn’t that way the hell over there in Oakland [...]
If someone asks me what my favorite cuisine is, I usually say Moroccan.There’s something about the spiceful combinations, or the slow roasting in the clay tajines, or eating with your hands – it a really sensual experience. I’m not sure I could eat Moroccan food with people I didn’t like, or that I felt were [...]
I’d received a tip that the croissants here were utterly butterly delicious. And I’m inclined to believe that tip, not based on the source of the information, but because I swung by there mid-week mid-day and they were completely sold out of all croissants, all varieties.

Step aside, we’re on a mission for chicken and waffles in West Oakland.
What goes best with a highly coveted bottle of 2007 sparkling shiraz FIZZ from Municipal Winemakers? I don’t actually know, but we got nice pizzas to pair it with and were happy with the results. I’d been holding onto this bottle for a while, looking for the right occasion to open it. Christmas came and [...]
Boasting one Michelin star, with an approachable menu and affordable prices, we scored a 4-top with very little notification on a Tuesday evening.
San Francisco is an all-around awesome city. I’m so grateful to have good friends here I can visit on a whim. I still ponder moving here myself. On a short, 3 day trip during the workweek, I stayed with Becca and Damon in Bernal Heights. We walked, we talked, we played with cats and watched [...]
