I blame the "Iron Chef" show starting the Japanese journey into foodie-ism... ^_- (Just kidding... *snicker*)

SF Sourdough Revisited

I recognize all but Baroni and Venetian...

Pretty sure I saw them all at Cala Foods at some point of time...

Unsure if all at once...

But pretty sure I saw at least of the three brands on the shelf at the same time...

Miss the 'dark' Parisian... ^^

Yes, but different owners from the '60s...

Picadilly's was owned and operated by actual Brits back then, and if I had the money after school, I would get an order of 'just chips' way back then...

There was also a bakery (Newmeyer's?) a few doors down from Picadilly that I used to hit when I was a kid... ^^

There is also the 'sister restaurant' in Palo Alto... Much larger and they serve goat as a regular menu item... ^^

$130 each... Limit of two...

Guess it's cheaper than flying and staying in Austin, plus waiting in that long line... ^_-

Would the bottled Japanese milk teas, like at Nijiya, be comparable?

Best HK Milk Tea SF?

Is it possible for the boba joints to provide a milk tea without the accoutrements (tapioca, jelly, etc.)?

Then maybe Super Cue, Purple Kow, Boba Guys, Tpumps, etc.

Maybe Cool Tea Bar in Chinatown? http://coolteabar.com/

closest thing to fresh Langer's rye around here

In a newsletter, I received from them back on March 23rd...

"OUR HOUSE BAKED BREADS ARE BACK!

We are so thrilled to share that our house baked breads including rye, challah, babka, & bialys are back. We have found a temporary spot to bake with our amazing friends at Bi-Rite Market and we think the bread is better than ever, so come see for yourselves!"

Yet another Japan based ramen joint coming to San Francisco

So... Have you guys heard of this place (in Tokyo)?

Yeah... My friends and I like these kinds of events just to be social and then we all commiserate on how crazy we were to wait so long for such a meager payout...

But sometimes... The payout is well worth it...

Had dinner at the Foster City locale last night and received a $10 credit that can only be used at the Mountain View location...

About a half-year since the last post to this thread...

Just curious how this location is doing these days? ^^
