SF Eaters – Nothing slanted about Slanted Door

If you live in San Francisco, there are a handful of restaurants that are establishments in the City, and one of the most well known among them is Slanted Door – a restaurant that fuses Vietnamese and Californian cuisines together.  The ambience of the restaurant is also a pleasure since it’s along the Embarcadero, and…

SF Eaters – R&G Lounge

After our trip to Jai Yun, the next SF Eaters destination was a wonderful seafood restaurant called Anchor & Hope, which is in SOMA.  One of the main drivers for us going to that restaurant is because their lobster sandwich had recently been featured as one of the best sandwiches in the city in San…

SF Eaters – A private meal at Jai Yun

After several SF Eaters meals at restaurants with Californian or fusion cuisine, February was the month for Asian cuisine, so we went to Jai Yun in Chinatown, to experience a more intimate Chinese food experience.  Jai Yun, for those uninitiated, is a reservation-only restaurant that you must call in advance to prepare your meal.  It’s…

SF Eaters – Ringing in 2010 in style!

Wow.  What a way to start 2010!  For the first SF Eaters of 2010, I decided to do something a bit different and bring the culinary delights of the SF Bay Area to my home, and hosted several friends and Scott Spencer, of Spencer’s Pantry, in my home for an evening of gastronomic and visual…

SF Eaters – Plant Organic, Oh so delicious!

After almost an entire week of gorging myself on stuffing, turkey, gravy, and pumpkin pie, it was definitely great to have the second SF Eaters of 2009 at Plant Organic, a new restaurant at Pier 3 with fresh, organic and delicious food.  This is their second location after the Marina.  I’ve been to both locations…

SF Eaters – Remixed – NOPA

After a long hiatus, SF Eaters is finally revived! And what better way to kick off the revival than at Nopa on Divisadero at Hayes.  It was a wonderful turnout, and the mix included many budding entrepreneurs which was great too.  I will give them some love once they are ready!  According to the Chef Laurence…

"Double D" + "bridge" + "eau"

Now if you can guess what that is a clue for, you are quicker than I am:)  Most of my previous posts have been centered mainly around food, but for this entry I thought I’d introduce another food for the senses which is music.  For those of you that enjoy jazz, or are interested in…

Boulevard of dreams

For those of you that have not been to Boulevard yet, when you step inside, you’re suddenly transported to an amazing place where the food is orgasmic. The food is impeccable, the service top notch, and the prices certainly reflect it. Now I’ll keep frenchie guessing whether it was truly a surprise or a grand stroke…

Oh Bar Tartine, how I love thee!

Double dates are always fun, but how often do you get to have one with one of your dearest childhood friends, her mom, and your own mom? Not often. So when we all got together for brunch in the city one sunny Saturday afternoon, it was a fabulous trip down memory lane. Our destination was…

Long Life Noodles

There are certain occasions that are more special than others and I celebrated one of those occasions recently.  Earlier this month it was my grandmother’s 90th birthday.  That’s right, 90.  That’s three times my lifetime!  Since it’s such a milestone birthday, it only seemed fitting to throw her a big birthday bash.   My mother,…
