Sunday was a great day to fly the kite. Parents were in town and we ate at some amazing places; Swan Oyster, Zuni Cafe, .fish... and walked up and down pretty much every major hill that we have in this fair city of ours. We earned those meals dammit!

My parents are in town this week. Before I moved here, they took me to this little island when I was 12 (?)... let's see how this week unfolds...

I'm sick. Maybe it is from that rainy ball game over two weeks ago....

Welcome to the Jungle

Welcome to the crime scene. Last night Aga and I were enjoying the sensation of softshell crab resting peacefully in our bellies as we worked on a second bottle of wine, when we heard some screaming outside our window. Two guys were beating the living bejesus out of a third who was sitting in this gray car. I mean they really let him have it. Punched him in the head multiple times. Threw him into the street, and kicked him on the ground. I had to call 911, give a statement and everything. The first cop car on the scene came roaring up the wrong way on our one way street, and two officers jumped out with guns drawn and screaming. It was a tense situation as everyone dropped to the pavement.

The short story of what happened; the guy in the car thought it was his! There was an almost identical car just 50 feet away. Apparently his wife was inside and he just sat in what he thought was "his" car. The true owners were just none to pleased to see him sitting in their vehicle, and that's when all hell broke loose.

It's ok SF, we still love you.

This is the AFTER picture. If you would like to see the BEFORE video as our tasty dinner squirms for its precious life click here. Softshells are in season, and life is good.

Here's our tasty seafood and deep fried veggies accompanied by several dipping sauces and a nice bottle of red wine. If you look closely, you can still see one of the fish eyes... bright eyes are a sign of freshness!

Soft shell crabs, bright-eyed fishies, headless shrimp... all before being dipped into the tempura batter

Did I mention we love California?

They remind me of wax candles...

Redwoods are fun woods....

We made ribs last week. One of the most tasty, decadent, delights to come out of our kitchen. Delish. 9/10 greasy fingers covered in gristle.

Restaurant Reviews

So we've gotten a request from an anonymous reader for restaurant reviews! I have a feeling that more people read this space then we know of...

I'll start this ball rolling in style.

Godzilla Sushi, Divisadero and California (I think?)

Just blocks from our apartment, this little sushi bar is an excellent value. Even if you ignore the cartoon drawings of our favorite green lizard on the walls, and the rolls named "Tinky Winky" and "Monkey Surprise", this is still a great place for a quick bite.

The chef's have an indie rock star appeal, as they slice and dice. The beer is cold, the tuna plentiful. They've got some creative igredients to boot, incorporating odd Japanese herbs and banana. Yet the restaurant still refrains from getting too cutesy or getting downright stupid, and flavor comes first.

7/10 screaming villagers running in horror.
