How to eat canned smoked trout

I love that smoked trout from TJ's. I always have a couple cans on hand. We do a standard salad with smoked trout on top. I've made a delicious spread with it. Just mix with a tiny bit of mayo and whole grain mustard. It's good on a bagel as a spread or as chunks with cream cheese and tomatoes.

closest thing to fresh Langer's rye around here

Oh, I forgot about that corn rye at TJ's. It's really good.

Lychee fans rejoice!

I got some at Potrero Whole Foods a few weeks ago and they were the best I've ever had. Juicy, sweet, a little tart. It was like a different fruit than the ones I've bought at Asian markets over the years. Must have been those Hawaiian ones. I have no idea how much I paid

brunch tomorrow in the outer mission or excelsior? [San Francisco]

Balompie #3 on Mission opens at 9am on Saturday. Breakfast at Tiffany's on San Bruno Ave. in the Portola does a good breakfast.

Blue Plate doesn't do brunch. Dinner only.

Breakfast around Union Square [San Francisco]

I don't recommend Wise Son's hash. Giant pieces of meat and potatoes and bell peppers. Not hash-like at all. Their rye bread is delicious, though. And their chopped liver is awesome.

Sushi Sam's - My First Time, But Not My Last [San Mateo]

Answered my own question. Thanks google. Looks like Italy has banned it too.

Sushi Sam's - My First Time, But Not My Last [San Mateo]

Is it banned because of the digestive issues or some other reason?

Sushi Sam's - My First Time, But Not My Last [San Mateo]

Believe me when I say I'd know if I had ingested more than a little bit of escolar.

Sushi Sam's - My First Time, But Not My Last [San Mateo]

You probably don't see escolar on many menus because of the problems that some people have digesting it. Google it. It's not pretty. Although, in the amount someone would ingest in an order of nigiri, they probably wouldn't have a problem. I speak from experience.

House made bagels

I've really enjoyed Earl's Bagels which are only available on Sunday mornings at All Good Pizza in the Bayview. I like a really chewy, dark bagel with lots of seeds. I don't know if that's authentic for all you authenticity policemen(and women), but it's what I like. Earl's are all of those things. My jaw was sore after eating them. Score! Not cheap, but worth the price for me. I think they were 6 for $10. Half dozen or dozen only.
As an unrelated side note, I got a couple Baron's Bagels at the Potrero Whole Foods last weekend. They were really good. I didn't know Whole Foods had them. I'll be back for those

Pineapple Whip near Balboa Park BART [San Francisco]

My daughter and I went there last Saturday afternoon. We had to wait too. Seems like they might need a second machine. But we really enjoyed the Dole Whip. Smooth, creamy texture. Not icy at all. We will be back. They also have really inexpensive, simple sandwiches that looked great. Done on a panini press. Could be a nice alternative to Roxie Food Market sandwiches in that area.

Chronicle top 100 2015

Actually, he says that he tried to get it bumped up to 150 as a possible tie-in to the 150th anniversary of the Chronicle. Read the intro to the online list

We used to order a whole pie at Arinell all the time. That is until Pizza Shop opened.

What do you eat when you don't know what you want?

Corn flakes in milk with a bit of sugar or dark toasted bagel with cream cheese

LIGHT sides with ribs

I know someone said cold broccoli salad, but I love that "broccoli ceviche" from the NY Times. I make it all the time. My only change is that I use a little less oil. The leftovers are awesome too. It's great with meat!

Oh no! It's not AUTHENTIC! The horror! Ahhhhhhhhh

"Bang-Bang" - I knew I wasn't alone in this . . .

Yep. But it's usually when I'm totally annoyed at having paid for a fancy meal and still being hungry at the end(Locanda SF I'm looking at you).
