Yummy Yummy wasn’t my first choice for lunch on my recent trip to San Francisco.  I was in route to try the Chowzter North American winner for best Asian dish next door at San Tung.  The award was for the dry fried chicken wings there.  However, of all the weird days to be closed, they were closed on Wednesday, so I was forced to call a quick audible and...

San Francisco is one of my favorite cities in the entire world, and it’s also one of the most delicious ones.  I’ve already done a few reviews from the Ferry Building near the beginning of the S.F Pier.  There you can find world famous The Slanted Door.  That’s where a buddy of mine and myself went for dinner last month before business...

Yan’s Kitchen Hunan Cuisine has a great location in San Francisco.  Our family took one of the sigh seeing buses that pick up tourists from Pier 39 as they take folks up past China Town and the financial district, and then on to Golden Gate park and the bridge, and past through the Presidio neighborhood.  We decided to get off on one of the first stops of...

My first attempt to visit the Tartine Bakery a year ago ended in a miserable failure.  I had about 2 hours until my flight was leaving out of Oakland, and was desperate to find a parking spot outside the bakery.  After several loops around the surrounding roads, and time running out to make my flight, I had to scrap my plans and bail.  Attempt #2 was successful...

I have had this place flagged for a visit on my next Bay Area trip ever since I saw it on The Travel  Channel’s Triple D with Guy Fieri.  Imagine how exited I was to get a parking spot right in front of The Refuge, only to have that excitement turn to sadness when I learned that they only open for lunch, but then close.  Luckily it was only 4:30 in the...

  Cheese!  Sweet glorious, fantastic gooey cheese!  Walking down the Ferry Market building I passed along dozens of artisan food vendors, but this is the one that grabbed my attention.  I witnessed a gal in the kitchen preparing a huge platter of cheese sandwiches to be grilled.  There was no measuring or portion cups she was using.  Just a gobs and gobs,...

During my recent trip to the Bay Area, I was really excited to try tons of great San Francisco food.  During our Hop On-and-Off bus tour the driver told us that in San Francisco there is one restaurant for every 40 people in the city.  The history of the city, the smells of Fisherman’s Wharf, I didn’t know what to expect.  I would have never guessed...

There are times in life that you walk by a place, and you have no choice but stopping there.  This was definitely one of those times.  Never mind the fact I was in the Bay Area on business and walking down San Francisco’s Pier 39, but when I saw the huge sign advertising “Mini Donuts”, I honestly can’t think of anything more enticing....

The normal flow of one of my reviews is starting out with a picture of the restaurant, then maybe a picture of two of the inside, then on to an appetizer, and finally the main course.  I’m going to go in reverse for this review, just because I was so excited about my entrée!  Mac and Cheese! I’m not sure if this plate of mac and cheese could get any...

San Francisco has so many food options to choose from.  I almost burnt out my battery from my phone on Urbanspoon and Yelp looking for somewhere to go to lunch at.  I love going down by the Bay, so while I was walking down the Embarcadero I passed by this place just past the Alcatraz tour center.  Initial reviews looked good, plus it was Asian cuisine and I...
