Whole pig dinner similar to Incanto?

On different note...

I am intrigued by the 'Whole Hog Happy Hour' at Michael Mina's new Bourbon Steak and Pub at the new stadium...

Food pics of said hog at yelp... ^^

Abura-Ya (Oakland)

Need to find a place in San Francisco that makes (I guess) the 'Hawaiian' version... 'Mochiko Chicken'... ^^

Only place that made Mochiko Chicken (I liked)... Sadly closed ages ago, and was located on Judah... Way out in the avenues...

Milan Expo 2015

So... Is Milan starting to brace itself for this event next year?

Anyone have any idea what the food options will be at the fair?

Probably too early to say... I know. :)

Best Paella in San Francisco/Oakland?

I second this... The times I/we have had it, the rice was cooked to proper doneness and the all important 'crispy bits' were present too... ^^

Falafel: SFBA Dish of the Month June 2014

Liba is one of the few local food trucks I would make an effort to hit when she's in the neighborhood (near work)...

The combo of her freebie condiments and falafel make her's number one for me... :)

Favorite Caribbean Restuarants in SF, East Bay or South Bay

The chef at "Coconuts" and "Back A Yard" is the same...

And both their web pages have music that you can't initially turn off until you navigate off the home page... :P

Swan Oyster Depot --- do they locals actually like it or is it merely a sucks for bucks type of tourist trap ???? [San Francisco]

I just get a take-out combo salad and eat at home, since I'm only a block away...

No wait in line... Just go in and place your order...

When I first started to go, the salad was $12.95 and that was in the late 80s-early 90s...

It's climbed to $20 now, and I only have it on occasion...

Prices have gone up, but so has my salary... ^_-

Been to Vesta twice... But for lunch on Saturdays (before a movie)... No wait... No reservations...

Jamon Iberico Bellota at Costco

I thought flavor was fine, but it didn't do that 'melt in your mouth' thing like the servings I have had at restaurants...

Perhaps the presliced packaged version(s) at Costco are not as shaved/sliced as thinly to cause that effect?

Great China (Berkeley) still great

From an e-mail I got from 'Great China' this morning...

"We’ll be closed Tuesdays from January 7th onward for a bit to give us time to adjust our staff and processes to the increased business. It’s a good problem to have."

bhindi (okra) at Darbar Restaurant on Polk St.

Darbar is one my favorites too... But probably more because it's around the corner from my house... ^^

Too bad they don't offer the same menu as when it first opened... I miss that nice and spicy chapli kebab...

Wonder if there was a chef change, thus the menu adjustment...
