First time visitor - where to get best regional treats?

Dungeness crab is available but is not local but it is still good. It is much larger than East Coast crab. You must go to the Ferry Building Saturday morning for a look at regional treats. You may forget about Bay Shrimp.

Which Berkeley Bowl is less annoying?

A quick check of the above indicates there is easier parking at BBW. a definite plus, but I do notice a second good reason. less Berkeley
street people. Someone tell me you miss them.

Catahoula’s Kaffeegarten

I just noticed this at 4th and Addison across from the doomed Berkeley
Grocery Outlet where the ice cream parlor I never got try to used to be. I guess Timber is betting on the gentrification of the SOTOP* area of 4th Street. http://www.catahoulacoffee.com/

More coffee choices at the Ferry Plaza Farmers' Markets [San Francisco]

Your reply suggested you knew the difference between fresh and old as did your remark about the taste of pond scum. Your eidetic liquid taste memory impresses me.

Personally I have never tasted battery acid, although my wife suggested at a wine tasting that an aged Csb had aged a bit long and tasted like BA. My thought was that you had tasted it both fresh and rancid.

With Pete's it's more like rancid old battery acid"

Quite a diet sulfuric acid and lead.

It is a constant source of amazement to me the number of people familiar with the taste of battery acid let alone rancid battery acid.

Mi Pueblo Home Style Chips ( Estilo Casero )

Mi Pueblo in San Rafael makes short ribs a joy
to shop for. Pick out the biggest, meatiest pieces and ignore the bony, fatty ends.
e.g. 9 good one bad.
