Best HK Milk Tea SF?

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)?

http://insidescoopsf.sfgate.com/blog/...

Is it really 'celebrated'? ^^

The last ramen import to San Francisco was...

Franklin BBQ pop up mid-May?

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...

See ya in line! ^_-

Cooking Papa (Mountain View)

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? ^^

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...

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... :)

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
