BTW, Pican's "Creole Spiced Bacon" is dead easy to make; I do it all the time at home. Didn't even need a recipe to figure that one out, LOL. We prefer it with a modest amt of brown sugar, we like our spicy bacon to taste balanced between sweet/salt and less like candied jerky.
I've enjoyed the Millionaire's Bacon at Brewery Gulch Inn many times, and it's so incredibly delicious! What I find interesting is that not only is the name of Mr. Choi's bacon the same as that of the dish that's been on BGI's menu since 2001, but the ingredients for Mr. Choi's bacon look identical to the ingredients in the Millionaire's Bacon at Brewery Gulch Inn. Things that make you go "Hmmm...."
We are both amused and honored that Mr. Choi, a guest of ours in 2010, has chosen to include on his menu Millionaire's Bacon, a signature item created by our first chef and the featured item on our menu since the Inn's opening in 2001.

I love it there I always eat there thanks for sharing
It is ironic that, as a new citizen, the character goes to racist "Geno's Steaks" in South Philly, where until the Pope's recent visit had signs on their restaurant stating "This Is AMERICA, When ordering, SPEAK ENGLISH" and "Press 1 for English, Press 2 for Deportation". The character should have gone to "Pat's Steaks" across the street, the actual creator's of the cheesesteak sandwich, which they serve to everyone.
Been there, good coffee
Keizo Shimamoto once wrote that tori paitan broth just meant "boiling the dickens out of chickens."
I've had good versions in SF at Kirimachi and Mensho Tokyo.
As they say over here: Kol ha Cavod, ( all honors to you)! For making such an innovative menu in your restaurant. As a native San Franciscan and Berkeley alum, I wish we had known about you and had time to visit your restaurant when we spent a week visiting my brother in his nursing home in San Rafael. Unfortunately, he died two months later. And meantime, we returned to Beersheba, Israel, where we live.

Overland has a completely new menu with a few of the old items improved.
I think it is worth a trip by your reviewers and customers who haven't been in a while.. to check out the great menu by Geoff Deetz, an OG of the Oakland food scene.
I've just mixed Q sauce into my standard-issue salad, but I'll show up next time I'm in Hayward..
Correction Marmee Manak a seasoned sommelier who has worked alongside This incredible chef for many years. She has travelled internationally to organic: biodynamic wine festivals and visit domestically many of our vineyards to experience the land. I'm enticed to dine there for both the food and exquisite wines.
And you didn't even try the biodynamic wines paired so beautifully to each dish it seems. Somalier Marmee Marnak has scoured the world seeking wines that enliven our being.
Just visited Annapurna. Lovely decor, not as good as Hamro Aangan/Albany. The Khashi Ko Masu (goat wet curry) at Annapurna is not as good as at Aangan--lacks complexity and depth. No grilled tomato, btw. The fried fish is also better at Aangan, with a lighter batter and not overcooked. The cauliflower/potato curry was indifferent, too. You're right about the naan and lamb mo-mo's, however--both were outstanding at Annapurna.
Yes, they are great. I love their noodle soup as well as their ESAN (Thai Laos Mixed) style food. Bamboo soup, the BBQ ribs, and their soft sticky rice. Mann, it made me hungry just to think about it. Too bad, we live very far away. But, we will go again this weekend.
Can't have enough of good Thai food.
Oh OK.. this is in the same little strip as my favorite cheap lunch deals from the Banh Mi place. For $3 one can get FULL off of a cool banh mi (bread could be softer at times tho). Now I have a new spot to haunt at lunch. Love me some laab
Alice Woo has been giving me a bad vibe for awhile now. I think she is racist and she obviously doesn't care about social issues like gentrifciation because she's a successful business owner. I'm so not surprised to hear about your experience there Becca. Every time I've gone in there she gives off a bad energy. Your story just confirmed that she is definitely a racist person who I personally think needs to check herself before she talks foolishness to the wrong one.
My go-to place for great comfort bar eats.
The tots remind me of my Portland, OR roots.
'But much of why I loved the place had to do with the other sensory pleasures that come with sitting at the counter to watch the chefs do their thing in the smoke-filled haze of the kitchen fiddling with the vents on the grill or flipping pieces of fried chicken over with a pair of chopsticks. It's a scene that could as easily take place in a back alley in Tokyo as an upscale-ish restaurant in Oakland.'
Yes! Sitting at the counter and smelling like the skewers is what makes a yakitori-ya experience special.
Are you going to be playing election results on TV?
how does one reconcile Sicilian poverty cuisine with saffron? arguably the most expensive food ingredient on the planet...
