Trip Report: San Francisco with my Foodie Son...

Wonderful write-up - truly appreciate your detailed account of your trip!

A review: The Gazebo on Maui

When I saw the title of your post I got very nervous, I was afraid it might not be a good one! We love the Gazebo & always make at least one visit during our yearly stay in West Maui...

Just want to add that for my DH the Big Kahuna Omelette is his usual breakfast choice, easily achieving a 5 star review from him so if & when you're not craving sweets, give it a try :-)

Toong Mai by Sing Cheong Yuan Bakery in Honolulu

Might be worth checking with Takahashi in San Mateo as they bring in lots of goodies from Hawaii...

Farmers market Sunday

+1 for Mountain View with one caveat: it is super busy & gets very crowded. Tip: go early!!!

Beijing Duck House (Cupertino)

The duck is $39.99. I don't believe we ordered different styles, just asked for extra crispy. We also got soup made with the carcass with Napa cabbage stems & tofu. I think the soup & fried carcass is standard...

Beijing Duck House (Cupertino)

Thursday 8 of us enjoyed a great 2-duck dinner at Beijing Duck House. Dishes we had: Cold Pork Ears, Jelly Pork, House Made Cucumber (in sesame sauce), Hot Mustard Duck Flippers, Pea Sprouts, Beijing Cake, plus extra pancakes & veggies for the duck. Great meal $23/pp.

The duck was the best I believe I've ever had, expertly carved & plated. Crispy skin that crackled when sliced, flavorful meat, delicate thin pancakes, carefully cut green onion & cucumber, extra flavorful duck sauce, altogether a delight...

The Beijing Pancake is not to he missed, total wok hay, flavorful dish.

Thanks to ChewChew & DeeGlaze for suggesting the dinner & thanks to hyperbowler for finding out about the private room that seats at least 12 & ordering our ducks extra crispy!

Looking forward to a return visit.

For an unknown reason, I'm not able to add my photos...

Grocery Outlet May 2015

In the Geary St. SF store yesterday: Good Earth Organic Sweet & Spicy Caffeine Free Herbal Tea, 4 boxes for $5.99, 18 tea bags/box! I think I've paid about $3.50 for 1 box at other stores...

Nice early Sunday dinner in Palo Alto, plus transportation help

The noise level at Left Bank would be a deal killer for me... But that's just me!

NY style slice near SFO/San Mateo

I agree on Spederia in San Carlos...

Naks, Menlo Park

Nooo, I'm so sad to hear this... I live in MP & quite often when I've needed something & not wanted to drive all over, they have had what I need. Probably rent went thru the roof... Sad :-(

What's for Dinner #361 - April Showers Edition [through April, 29, 2015]

Congrats nw on your weight gain!!! Great news...

Food at terminal I at SFO

I just downloaded gateguru & just as quickly uninstalled it! Looking at SFO, the reviews of eating places are all several years old... Didn't look like it would be very useful to me. I had high hopes too.

What's for Low-Carb Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner? #5

Tonight's dinner: Turkey lettuce cups Asian style. Ground Turkey, chopped/sauteed cremini shrooms, garlic, red onion, water chestnuts, green onion, hoisin, sriracha, rice wine vinegar, Maggi & a tiny bit of toasted sesame oil. Ate in Romaine leaves. Had some cauliflower "rice" on the side. Very yummy & satisfying :-)

Din tai Fung comes to Bay Area

Welcome back! I've not had an opportunity to try DTF & am looking forward to it very much!

What's for Dinner #359 - the April Showers Edition [through April 15, 2015]

DH was craving pizza for dinner yesterday so I decided to try the cauliflower crust pizza recipe a good friend sent me... I made some tomato sauce that turned out pretty good considering I used some cherry tomatoes that were hanging around. This took an amazing amount of fiddling & diddling, but the result was close enough to satisfy!!! No picture, but it looked every bit like the real thing.

How do you prefer your matzo balls?

Floaters, schmaltz, ready-made matzo meal... Love, love, love them!!!

Just want to say thank you to who all mentioned the chicken-less chicken strips. Got them the last time I stopped at TJ & served them tonight with a marinara over Zoodles (zucchini noodles)... Tasty, so they are a Yay for me!

Fire Code bans use of barbecues on decks of apts. and condos - HELP

We spoke with the fire chief in our town about the Traeger grills & got the thumbs down!!! They consider it an open flame device....

Still living in the condo. Bought a Weber Q220 gas grill that uses the 1 lb propane tanks. Not the best, but better than no grill at all...

What's for Dinner #358 - The Easter/Passover Edition! [through April 7, 2015]

Simple meals these days: Sauteed fresh cod fillets seasoned with lemon pepper, pan seared cauliflower steaks with Penzey's Turkish seasoning blend & the freshest, meatiest artichokes I've had in ages (thanks to a great Farmers Market vendor)... Who says low carb/lean protein can't be yummy!

Low carb Lean protein - need some suggestions...

Yes, love fish. Tonight I grilled fresh Pacific cod on a cedar plank, seasoned with lemon pepper, asparagus, eggplant & mini-peppers... Low carb, low cal, low fat, best if all it was yummy!

Mazzetti's Bakery / Pacifica

Actually it's Mazzetti's... Also, have you tried Dianda's in Crystal Springs Shopping Center for traditional Italian cookies? They usually have Ossi di Morti & Bruti ma Buoni 2 of my favorites (spelling might be off)...
