Presidio Bowl

Boyfriend and I have finally discovered the secret to Presidio Bowl‘s popularity: you pay by time, when you leave – not by game. Without the pressure to destroy my partner in a limited number of rolls, I found myself really nailing down the most effective ways to move my body. I’m a better, more mindful […]

Recipe: Oven ribs

The oven ribs from Community Foods Market‘s extensive recipe collection are about as simple and crowd-pleasing as they get- and very easy to scale up or down. You’ll definitely want to make extra sauce, though: its flavor is addicting, and deceptively complex. Show Community Foods Market some love! They’ll teach you to cook just about […]

Recipe: Crab bucatini

Edible East Bay‘s crab bucatini recipe might be the best thing I’ve made this year, possibly this pandemic. It’s exceptionally light, bright, and buttery. We skipped the crab butchery, and probably a significant amount of time with it: this took about half an hour in total. Most of the ingredients store very easily; this is […]

Recipe: Cucumber salad

Snixy Kitchen’s sesame ginger miso cucumber salad was a bit of an adventure to make the first time. It was also the first time I used a spiralizer, and I’d bought the wrong tool for the job: a $5 single piece of plastic found on a standee at the grocery store, closer in function to […]

Tekka House

Tekka House, near the Glen Park BART, is kind of a fish out of water. It’s inland a bit, but the interior would have you believe it’s oceanfront: The menu is partly traditional and partly inventive. Boyfriend said his ramen was possibly the best he’s had stateside. I have never tried whitefish with mango and […]

Recipe: Sahlab

It’s a strange thing to remember so vividly, and maybe a stranger thing to be sentimental for – but made with almond milk and left in the fridge overnight, Spice Tribe‘s sahlab takes on the exact texture of a Snack Pack. From a food science perspective, I find this fascinating: a basic pudding with no […]

Fuji

Fuji is open, and I couldn’t be happier. It’s a great location for rarer seafood specialties (salmon collar and o-toro, complete with gold leaf, to name a few) and, as it turns out, the lighting is extremely appropriate for photos. For an excellent Japanese meal, show Fuji some love!

I went to the Castro two days in a row and both times, it was the only sun I got that day: Boyfriend walked around Lake Merced instead:
