Benedict bonanza for brunch at Foxsister (also the Foxsister Burger is the new best burger in SF)

Screen Shot 2018-07-16 at 10.13.45 AM

(It’s weird, back in the day we would’ve written 10 posts about Foxsister by now, but this is our first. We go there all the time and recommend it to people all the time; we just don’t write blog posts very often anymore.)

Anyway, Foxsister rules, definitely check it out if you haven’t been. And also they just started doing brunch on Saturdays and Sundays 11am-3pm and the brunch is real good. I know it’s a long way til the weekend, but pencil it in now so you don’t forget — and start saving up appetite.

The fried chicken Benedict was REAL good, and the burger (only available at brunch) knocked our socks off. Plus the atmosphere (and four frozen drink options and cheap Hites) are perfect for brunchtime.

Here’s the menu:

MORE GLUTEN

Turner’s Kitchen explains:

Made a little change, we added stuffing aka more gluten to the Turkey-Cran-Brie-Darling sandwich that was a delicious hold over from Clare’s Deli (can you fucking believe it’s been almost 3 years!) Smoked turkey, melted Brie, chunky cranberry sauce and mustard-sage stuffing (brown butter+onion+celery+chicken stock+sage+garlic+whole grain Dijon mustard) on a ciabatta roll.

Alo-HAHHHH! Read on for most-excellent suggested chip and soda pairings (which you can take next door to 500 Club for most-excellent beer and shot pairings too).

Pal’s Take Away is back in SF! Fridays only, at Birba Wine Bar in Hayes Valley

Screen Shot 2018-03-01 at 1.49.00 PM

After a long absence from San Francisco, Pal’s is back!!! Every Friday at this place Birba, which is an acclaimed but modest little neighborhood wine bar full of nice people and plenty of places to sit and scarf a big ol’ Pal’s sandwich.

And despite the long absence, the sandwiches are just as we remember them — big and rich and full of character and freshness and fun flavors and textures. (And when we went a couple Fridays back, the menu was very familiar — 4 or 5 sandwiches to choose from, including that legendary Lao sausage.)

It’s 11:30am to 3ish, every Friday now. Birba is in Hayes Valley, yes, but think of it more like a 5-minute bike ride from Zeitgeist:

IMG_20180211_113001

Jeff from PizzaHacker called to tell us the news. Here are the facts:

  • It’s Sundays from 10:30am to 1pm for now (but they hope to expand those hours, and do Saturdays too)
  • They’re making just 150 bagels each Sunday for now (so please don’t order a dozen just yet)
  • Jeff was making bagels even before he started got into the pizza biz (so he knows what he’s doing)
  • Coffee and mimosas are available too (very important)
  • The menu is short but exciting (check it out after the jump)

Thanks, Jeff!

It’s FOB Kitchen’s final night at Gashead Tavern and we’d love to see you there!

We’ll be opening up an hour early at 5pm and servin’ up all your favorites, so come get your FOB Kitchen fix to hold you over for a while!

Come celebrate the last few years, and toast to the future with us!

Many MANY thanks to everyone for your continued love and support!

RSVP and invite your friends!

Eating at the counter at Zante’s is pretty fun

FullSizeRender

I ate at the counter at Zante’s last night and it was pretty fun, and it reminded me of the time I did it 9 years ago, and blogged about it here:

You get to watch the hustle and bustle, and if you order Zante’s “Best Indian Pizza” by the slice, your slice comes out hotter and crisper and more fully loaded than usual. Also, they have Lowenbrau.

I didn’t notice any Lowenbrau, but other than that it’s all still true I think, and now my phone takes way better pics.
