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

I like the curry goat special at 'Back A Yard' in Menlo Park...

Their jerks are OK...

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... ^_-

Great China PSA

Not that this is surprising news... Most good Chinese restaurants will be utter 'chaos' for the next few coming weekends... ^_-

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

First time with a group of five... Second time with eight, that grew to 10... ^^;

Enjoyed both meals...

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...

Kyoto - non-Kaiseki restaurant picks

I grabbed some inari and saba sushi to go from this place...

Then split it with friends at an eating/sitting area in the temple across the street... ^^

And this place is great place to have a break and a treat...

Tasted a bit from the bottle I bought... Very very nice... ^^
