Costco: Xmas 2014

I assume the Brillo,not the steel wool, is part of it. There were some others I think are new for the holidays but I couldn't find the prices. So far no La Tur or similar. Plenty of Stilton, soon to be reduced in price as it reached its best but date and instantly go bad.
The Spanish ham has been there for a while.

Pho Ga : SFBA Dish of the Month November 2014

Perhaps between 12th and 13th avenue by my Google map.

What's good near Lincoln/Auburn? [Follow this discussion on our California board]

Check recent comments on CA. Board since it's been a while but I enjoyed a lunch cheese sandwich with bacon at Awful Annies in Auburn and a good burger at Hawks in Granite Bay.

Where can I buy fresh flour tortillas?

I thought I saw them recently at Richmond but I will bet they are at the Business Center in Hayward. They shifted parchment paper there until recently when they resupplied our local.

Top spots for Vietnamese food in Oakland

I had my first Pho at Pho 84 back when it was just a hole in the wall off 14th closer to the lake,maybe Alice. That was in 84 before they moved "uptown." They may have been Oakland's first Vietnamese restaurant. I think it began before Le Cheval at the old Loma Prieta damaged Clay Street hotel.

Khao Mun Gai

Ran Kanom seems to me to have a more homey style to their cooking. See what they can do. I really like cross cultural definitions: "First, a definition: Kao mun gai is a Thai chicken and rice dish made with gently poached chicken and schmaltz-slicked, broth infused-rice."
