Anyone else getting tired of "new" Craft Beer,Gourmet Burgers & 3rd Wave Coffee joints in Bay Area?

Sure wish someone would open up a Mexican restaurant like San Diego's Super Cocina.

It really is extra special... I ate breakfast,lunch and dinner all in one day last time I was down in SD.

And each meal was totally different and fantastic.

Or perhaps there is a local SF Bay Area place like this I don't know about?

Hi JonDough,

Anyone else getting tired of "new" Craft Beer,Gourmet Burgers & 3rd Wave Coffee joints in Bay Area?

Is "cold brewed" Coffee served hot or cold?

Sorry, but I really don't know?

And is always done with just third wave coffee?

Thanks

I would love to see more Banh Mi shops like Cam Huong in the neighborhoods and good Middle Eastern.

I hear you virtualguthrie!

Especially if you are eating a Burger...the last thing i want to drink with it is some warm heavy dark "Lucifers deathbed winter cranberry wheat ale".

Give me a fine tasty cold Pilsner or crisp cold lager please with my Burger and fries.

I ordered some Verve Coffee mail order.

I got their "darkest roast"

Very expensive and Lovely packaging...but I really did not like it at all.

I ground and brewed it extra special to try and look for and appreciate any subtle flavor nuances ...nothing!

Hi Josh,

I am always disappointed when I try the 3rd wave coffee.
It always just tastes like weak, bitter Yuban,Folgers canned coffee from Grandma's percolator circa 1978.

Where do you think its done really well?

I'm ready to give it another try.

Thanks

I'm in Rockridge in Oakland

PS

I have tried Blue bottle,Remedy and SubRosa several times.

SubRosa was the worst and I have tried it at least 5 times.

Blue Bottle was the only one that at least did not taste bad...just weak.

The Peets on College replaced a tea specialty place as I recall...so sad!

Robert,Why don't you want anything new?

I am also interested in the people that go to the new Corporate Peets Coffee
around the corner from Cole Coffee.

Why do people support mega Corps when there is a better long standing local place a block away?

It makes me sad.

Anyone else getting tired of "new" Craft Beer,Gourmet Burgers & 3rd Wave Coffee joints in Bay Area?

I posted this as 2 new coffee places will be going into the new Safeway complex at College and Claremont in Oakland.

(Cole Coffee has been there for 30 years and is best)

And Barlata in the Temescal will be a new Burger joint along with Trueburger opening at 40th and Broadway.

ZZzzzzzz

Their bourgeois banality has become redundant and tiresome.

This is the SF Bay Area...we are open to new food ideas!

Please show us something different in 2015

Who has good Fish 'n Chips in the Eastbay?

Hi Moto,

I tried the Hapuku fish market fish and chips.
They took about 20 minutes to prepare...as I just stood around waiting.

Take away only and no good place to eat them in the area.

They were expensive,no malt vinegar,and cheapo extra salt and ketchup packs.

They became a greasy,soggy mucky mess after only a 2 block drive to my house to eat them.

Fish tasted like and had same mushy texture as potatoes.
The oil temp must have been incorrect.

I ended up tossing half in trash.

Worst Fish 'n Chips I ever had.

Who has good Fish 'n Chips in the Eastbay?

Thanks Sue,These sound great!

Circus Fish and Chips

Six pieces of Icelandic Cod deep fried in beer batter, served with house-cut fries, homemade dressed slaw and tartar sauce

Plus I would bet they have malt vinegar too.

Who has good Fish and Chips in the Eastbay?

Nothing fancy or reconstructed.
Simple,fresh Cod and hot chips cooked to order...like in England.

"H'Salt Esq."style from 1970's would even be fine.

Must have malt vinegar available.

Thanks

French Fries: SFBA Dish of the Month December 2014

Those fish and chips look great!

Now I need some this week.

"Worst of 2014" nominations

The worst experience for me in 2014 was on Superbowl Sunday.

The SF 49ers were playing and I thought I would check out a new local beer centric place called Hog's Apothecary in Oakland.

It had recently opened and its specialty was many local craft beers and House made Sausages. It also had a shuffleboard table that I wanted to check out.

Beer
Sausages
Shuffleboard
Niners in Superbowl

What could possibly go wrong!

But when I went down to check out the game,have a brew and a dog...they were closed!

WTF?

And its not like they don't open on Sundays...its just that they were not going to bother to open till after the SuperBowl game was over.

Ultra fail.

But like a fool...I gave them one more chance a few weeks later.

I ordered a "pint" of some bartender recommended crap lemongrass kale honey wheat "beer" for $8 plus $2 tip and it came in a 14oz Glass!

14 Phucking ounces is not a pint!
$10 bucks for 14 ounces of warm nasty watered down syrup.

Never again!

French Fries: SFBA Dish of the Month December 2014

I always thought Wood Tavern's fries were fantastic!

Must be eaten (like most fries) while still hot!

Fresh goose in Bay Area?

I saw some at Richmond Costco this week.

Don't know how fresh they were?

Has anyone tried them?

Costco Holiday Treat: A5 grade of Wagyu Beef for $1200

"Fat in a pork chop does not equal fat in Japanese Wagyu Beef."

I Never said it did?

A professional experienced Robata chef that over cooks Wagyu beef does not exist.

Costco Holiday Treat: A5 grade of Wagyu Beef for $1200

I have found extremely marbled beef to be just too fatty.
The fat literally puddles up in your mouth as you eat it.
Not good eats IMHO.

And this comes from someone whose favorite steak is the Rib eye because it is so fatty...and tasty!

I am not afraid of fat as you can see by this pork chop I had last week...

http://www.chowstatic.com/uploads/2/6...

Eating the Wagyu beef in small sized Japanese Robata style is probably the best way to go.

But I will be interested in hearing reports back if people go for the full steaks.

Where are you buying your turkey?

Costco in Richmond has lots of big Foster farm Turkeys yesterday all $10 off pre Thanksgiving price.

now about $15 each

I bought one , quartered it and froze it.

Moroccan Mint Tea

Peet's coffee has gunpowder tea.

Looking for small 6-8 oz. cans of Sauerkraut in the Eastbay?

Thanks

Yes, I have tried several of the local fresh sauerkraut and they are surprisingly just ok.

That is why I just want the canned stuff...so I can always have it on hand and there is no left over.

Clove & Hoof butchery and restaurant in Oakland is open!

That sounds different...i'll check it out!

Thanks

Looking for small 6-8 oz. cans of Sauerkraut in the Eastbay?

Most of the time I just need a small amount of Sauerkraut and these smaller cans were perfect.

Now I can't find them locally or even on Amazon.

http://www.amazon.com/Libbys-Crispy-S...

They don't have to be Libby brand...just small.

Thanks

Clove & Hoof butchery and restaurant in Oakland is open!

shanghaikid when did they do that?

Its been a year since I ate there.

It looks like a Middle Eastern family runs the Broadway Burrito now.

Its always empty when I drive by.

The place could be a gold mine!

No more burnt gravy! - Calphalon roasting pan

Calphalon non stick cookware is garbage and that is where it belongs.

If its new....re-gift to a non cook this holiday.

Clove & Hoof butchery and restaurant in Oakland is open!

I believe that is free parking for Clove & Hoof and other businesses.

Unless things have changed....That is the way it has been in the past when it was Liquor store then a a short lived produce market.

That is where I parked.

Sure wish a great taqueria would take over that pathetic Broadway burrito shop!
