100% grass fed beef. Icky! Am I crazy?

Grass-fed beef tastes like... beef. It's just more intense.

Also, grass-fed beef (or any animal) is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which is an essential nutrient. Grain-fed beef has more omega-6 fatty acids. The ratio of omega3:omega6 is critical for metabolism.

In other words, omega 6 intake reduces out the benefits of omega-3 intake. Ratios that favor omega-3 will reduce inflammation, blood clotting, and tumor growth; ratios heavy in omega-6 promote these health hazards. Also, omega-3 is critical for brain metabolism, while omega-6 has been linked to depression.

The typical (grain-fed) American diet is heavy in omega-6, and this is probably a major factor behind our many health issues.

Best Indian food in SF?

for pure taste, I like Shalimar in Tenderloin. it's hit or miss, but when it's on, it's ON.

of course there's classics like Indian Oven, Breads of India (in Berkeley), and Amber (in Palo Alto).

Where's Ajanta?


the pork-stuffed fried yucca balls are delish

Sushi Ran. Need Advice.

I went with a party of 4, and I think it was about $100-150 per person, including sake. It was some of the most delicious food though.

I loved the Wagyu (sp?) beef. and the small crabs. everything was good, though.

BBQ Man Cafe in Menlo Park.

where is Uncle Franks? I've also driven by BBQ Man many times and wondered if it was any good.

I like BCC (aka Jon Jon's). It's down in San Jose, I think on Oakland Rd. Pretty good, although it doesn't match up to the BBQ in Texas.

Free knife sharpening - don't do it!

There's this old German guy at the Menlo Park farmer's market who does an excellent job for about $8. He uses a whetstone and a variety of other polished stones--no machines or such--and he works on any blade (including lawn and medical equipment).

Highly recommended. I had his card for a while, if people are interested I can go find it and post.


The Tenderloin location is the best... although it's been inconsistent lately. But, when it's on, it's the best Indian food around.
