Is it true that SF restaurants barely make profits?

Actually his criteria, I think, makes him a tourist.

Yeah, I tried to order some from him on line, but there were a lot of hassles for him because it is over the border.

Not in Florence, but once in Padova we went to a grocery store and were sent to the fish department to get some ice to chill our wine.

Ran Kanom Thai Noodle - San Pablo

We were there on Saturday night early. We didn't intend to stay but we did. We had Kaw Soi on soup side of the menu and # 16 on the noodle side, which was a beef and onion and other vegetable mix.. We thought # 16 (didn't remember the name) was mild and added some of the condiments. Very tasty. The Kaw Soi was suitably spicy. We also purchased dishes from the selection at the door.as well as the steam table.
To Ridge. Were you the people that asked for a table of six when you came in? We were finished.

I've asked about the facing heaven chilies there also, but I admit that they tell me to check on the name etc. Walking every aisle is my only choice, so thank you. I will try tomorrow.

Fish Tacos - SF Dish of the Month March 2014

I had the grilled rock cod(I think) tacos at Comal on Saturday night. The curtido slaw was very good with some red peppers in it. The tacos came with pickled jalapenos and carrots which added to it.

Political Ads

I really hate Neel Kashkari ads. This is not a political site. It is not a news site. Why political ads?

Is it just me or does this list sound very upmarket and possibly not really reflective of what's great to eat in SF ?

I have been to Tenbrink to pick up Forlorn Hope. It is not virtual. I do not know who has the bond.
