I'm a big ice cream fan and when I heard that there was a stand in Hayes Valley that uses liquid nitrogen to make ice cream, I put it on my must visit list for the next time I was in the Bay Area. I went to Hayes Valley on my last afternoon in San...
Ferry Building, One San Francisco Bay Trail #8, San Francisco, CA 94111, USA
Everyone seems to try the famous Secret Breakfast flavor, which has bourbon and conflakes, but it's just one of the many creative and creamy options at this Mission ice cream stop (which now has a new location in the Ferry Building). I like a...

If one is going to throw around the word "iconic," let's make sure it's used appropriately. As with Zuni. The awkwardly shaped restaurant—it's in a narrow storefront with wider spaces on the mezzanine—was opened in 1979 by Billy West....

You'll get a taste of Lousiana in Brenda's cladenstine location which lies in the heart of the Tenderloin District. Worry not, you'll see hungry brunchers congregating outside. Once in, it's all about those beignets (including a crawfish flavour!)...
Twin Peaks, San Francisco, CA, USA

It's a wonderful Farmers Market right next to the water and around the Ferry Building. Organic produce and food interesting goods and many yummy treats. My friends and I got a plate of fresh oysters, salami samplers, gourmet cheese to eat. I also...

There is a little place on South Van Ness Avenue where miniature golfing (aka putt putt) (aka get-ball-in-hole) happens. The main features include a 14-hole course, a full bar at the front and arcade games on the side. I admit this place has...

You'll have a hard time ever leaving B. Patisserie, and you'll know why it's been an over night sensation in lower Pac Heights. The open, modern space feels like something you'd find in the Marais in Paris, and the fact that you can view the...

I thought this dish would taste exotic and borderline strange, maybe even a bit slimy, but the Garlic Frog really did taste like chicken. This Fall we had our first AFAR Supper Club event at Lers Ros Thai and of course the group was up for trying...

I stumbled upon Ramen Underground on a cold Friday night after a movie. There is no sign on the building, (I'm guessing this is the underground part), but a line out the door of customers waiting to be seated in the cozy interior told me that I...
