  • Nick's Crispy Tacos. Don't Bike There.
    on May 27, 2013 in San Francisco tacos
    NIck's Crispy Tacos is a well established taco institution in San Francisco. And for the longest time I couldn't really take them seriously. C'mon: it resides inside of a club. And with a name like Nick's, I just assumed some sort of abomination by s...
  • Pizza-a-DayHow was your January this year? Mine was busy. I ate a lot of pizza. Pizza. It has long been a daunting task for me. So daunting that I simply didn't approach it. I let others take the lead. And usually that was good enough. You see, I am more or...
  • Yamo
    on Sep 21, 2012 in San Francisco noodles
    Today I want to talk about Yamo, one of my very favorite restaurants in San Francisco. Yamo is a long standing Burmese joint in San Francisco's mission. It's not a secret by any means and it's always got a line. And Sometimes that wait is intolerab...
  • One Last Cup
    on Sep 13, 2012 in drinks mexico
    This afternoon I finally broke down and cooked up the very last of my Oaxacan chocolate. I was hoping to save it for some special occasion but then realized that no occasion would ever present itself and to continue hoarding this treasure would conti...
  • A Word On Freshness: Tortillas and Quesadillas
    on Jul 10, 2012 in mexican food mexico
    A conversation over dinner some nights ago hit upon the age old question of how food can taste so good in certain parts of the world. Countless meals eaten in the most random places can be so revelatory. The topic was Italy, a country for which I hav...
  • Empress of China
    on Jul 2, 2012 in San Francisco alcohol
    Without being too negative and droning on about cheap plastic junk shops and appalling food, let me simply recommend that you avoid San Francisco's Chinatown. I might enjoy the occasional walk through, but it is no means worth your time if in town fo...
  • Ode to Tacos and a Taco Stand
    on May 16, 2012 in mexican food tacos mexico
    It was almost a year ago that I left for Oaxaca Mexico for the summer and yet many of the meals, snacks, sights, and sounds are still very much on my mind. Today's rumination is about tacos, but more specifically only one taco stand in the town of Te...
  • LA Rants; Food
    on Feb 8, 2012 in tacos taco trucks Los Angeles
    I'm guilty of the rather banal sin of speaking ill of the city of Los Angeles. I mean, with such a huge and slow moving target reeking of all that is wrong with America's relationship with the automobile and the type of development it has encouraged...
  • The Small Matter of my Hands. And Bicycles.
    on Nov 18, 2011 in not food bikes
    A couple Sundays ago, for the first time in almost exactly two months I shakily hopped back onto a bicycle. After a quick ride up and down my street in the Lower Haight in the city of San Francisco, I realized I was good to go and rode across town fr...
  • Queso Fresco
    on Sep 27, 2011 in mexico
    At the house I stayed at in Teotitlan del Valle, one of the women made queso fresco, or fresh cheese daily. I imagine it is a tough and unglamorous life. Around the time I got up each morning to prepare for another day of linguistic analysis, she was...
