Re: “Cinco TacoBar in San Leandro Redefines the Strip Mall Taqueria

Sounds good, but there is no ñ in habanero.

Re: “Cooking Other People's Food: How Chefs Appropriate Bay Area 'Ethnic' Cuisine

Miss Ollie's, Fusebox, Hawker Fare, Nido, Namu Gaji, Kin Khao, Aziza, and Mourad get plenty of attention. Should James Syhabout or Corey Lee catch flak for appropriating French culture?

The restaurant section of Oasis Food Market went way downhill. Has it come back? When I walked through a few months ago it didn't look like it had.

Re: “Chowhound in Crisis: An Unpopular Redesign Prompts Longtime Users to Leave the Food Discussion Website

It's interesting that so far as I can find with Google this is still the only news story about this. I'd think Eater would be on it and maybe Inside Scoop / sfgate.com since there's a local angle.

CBS News is just one department of many in CBS Broadcasting, which is just one of CBS Corporation's numerous holdings.

Re: “Chowhound in Crisis: An Unpopular Redesign Prompts Longtime Users to Leave the Food Discussion Website

I set up http://foodtalkcentral.com using Discourse, a very nice discussion platform created by some of the principals behind Stack Exchange.

A bunch of regulars from Chowhound's Los Angeles board have moved over there. Not much traffic on the SF Bay Area section yet but I'll add more stuff now that I'm back in town.

I can set up additional regional sections for anyone else who wants a Chowhound alternative.
