I think Tay Ho in Oakland Chinatown has something similar. It's good. See the pic on the menu? The white things?

TV (Baseball) & Food in East Bay

I second Pyramid Brewery. I take my kid there to watch baseball. The food is NOT great but they have a lot of screens scattered throughout.

I like Bobby G's on University when I want to catch a game. TASTY pizza too. However you may have to crane your neck.

La Ciccia "call back tonight or else" voicemail - crossing the line or appropriate?

They were completely within their rights. You should have called the first time and not expected them to call you to confirm.

frozen fish from China: worth a try?

Grocery Outlet has various bags of frozen wild fish -- salmon, hake, flounder -- which are from China. Would you buy these? They are certainly cheap.

Okonomiyaki in the East Bay?

Folks I've got an urge for okonomiyaki and I don't want to have to travel to Japantown or the South Bay.
The nice ladies who work at Yaoya-San in El Cerrito told me to make one using a mix ... but I figure it's cheaper and better to just order one in a restaurant.
Any help? thanks

Best things you ate this month: Feb 2014

I made a pizza at home with TJ's white dough, creme fraiche, blue cheese, walnuts and sage. It was awesome.

Their burgers are fantastic too. I don't drink but even I love the place! :-) Yes it's hard to find but that's part of the appeal.

Bad experience at Rose Pistola [San Francisco]

Not in my experience. The staff is often not trained to greet under a set time limit, suggestive sell, or check back on the meal in a timely manner. Unfortunately these skills don't always come naturally and must be trained.

He sounds like a jerk. Hope your mom ended up having a good day otherwise!

Wait, don't go before reading my recommendation for Brotzeit Lokal! It is so delicious. Homemade German sausages and beer on the waterfront.

coconut oil

Yes I do (placing a towel on the pillowcase). I massage it into my scalp. It's easy to shampoo out.
I also have a problem with eczema and I find a few nights of this really helps.

coconut oil

It absolutely stays fresh at room temp. I have 2 jars in use in my house -- one on the bathroom counter and one in the kitchen pantry.

coconut oil

Since it has a high smoke point I use it for hot hot stir fries (just did some asparagus .... amazing) and of course popcorn. It does not give any coconut flavor in my experience.
I also use (a different jar) for my face and body and as a makeup remover and occasional hair mask.

That photo really looks like there's cornstarch in the soup. Are you 100% sure you didn't put cornstarch in there?
