Acme Bread Company

May 28, 2010

What can I say about Acme Bread? We simply love it! That’s it. We love it. They’ve got a location in the San Francisco Ferry Building. We’ve also been to the one in Berkeley by Kermit Lynch Wine Merchants. On weekends, Hegui and I usually have morning coffee with a sweet baguette from Acme. Sometimes […]

wine.com retail outlet, Berkeley

May 20, 2010

I do occasionally shop for wine online 😉 mostly from K and L in San Francisco. They have a marvelous web site! I also browse the sites for San Francisco’s The Wine Club and The Wine House and have even ordered some hard-to-find wines on the latter site, especially when they offer it for less […]

viks chaat corner, Berkeley

May 14, 2010

We went to Viks Chaat Corner at the suggestion of one of Hegui’s Indian colleague from work. Suhas couldn’t stop raving about it! It’s in Berkeley on the corner of Channing Way and Fourth Street, only a few blocks from wine.com’s retail outlet. Viks is a combination Indian retail store and “fast food” Indian restaurant. […]

Señor Pedro International, Daly City

May 6, 2010

Hegui has been looking for a place to get inexpensive, high quality Brazilian palmito or heart of palm. I recommended a Google search and that’s how we “discovered” Señor Pedro International. Daly City is just to the south of San Francisco though I’m embarrassed to say that I hardly ever go there. The store was […]

Richmond New May Wah Supermarket, San Francisco

April 13, 2010

Richmond New May Wah Supermarket is our favorite place for produce and Asian, particularly Chinese ingredients, in the Richmond District, and possibly in all of San Francisco. It offers much of the same things as at the Sunset Super but the produce is generally better and I think that it has a nicer atmosphere. The […]

Berkeley Bowl West

April 5, 2010

Sunday was a spectacularly sunny afternoon in the San Francisco Bay Area making it a perfect day to spread our wings and explore Berkeley. If you don’t know that lovely city by the Bay, it’s probably most famous as the home of the University of California, the first and premier “UC school.” The city has […]

Kamei House Wares & Restaurant Supply, San Francisco

March 18, 2010

Kamei is exactly what the title says: a great place for house wares and restaurant supplies. Located in the Richmond District on Clement Street at 7th Avenue, this shop is a must-see for anyone looking for that inexpensive kitchen tool, beautiful Japanese dishes or hard-to-find items for preparing Asian inspired cuisine. We don’t venture to […]

Sunset Super, San Francisco

November 19, 2009

After Irving and 22nd Market, the Sunset Super is our favorite food store in that neighborhood of the City. Only about three and a half blocks from the first, on Irving between 25th and 26th Avenues, it’s very convenient to go to both when you’re visiting the Sunset District. That’s what we usually do, at […]

Alemany Farmers’ Market, San Francisco, in autumn

November 6, 2009

We’ve finally made it to the Alemany Farmers’ Market and for the life of me I cannot figure out why we waited for so long. Perhaps we’ve been lazy, as we’re quite familiar with the UN Plaza and Ferry Plaza farmers’ markets? Or maybe it’s the confusing location of the Alemany market? It’s hard to […]

El Chico Produce #4, San Francisco

September 23, 2009

We’re big fans of El Chico Produce #4 in the Mission for inexpensive produce and Mexican and South American products. Located on 24th Street between Harrison and Alabama, the shop doesn’t look like much from the street. Surrounded by inexpensive restaurants, mainly featuring pork dishes; an unusual art shop and a Mexican bakery; it’s a […]
