Neighborhood Watching: Papalote on Throwdown with Bobby Flay [Recaps]

by Andrew Dalton on February 18, 2010

Did anybody else set their DVRs for Throwdown last night? Because I did, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Brothers Escobedo drop some burrito knowledge on Bobby Flay’s stupid triangular face. Flay proved that he could neither roll his R’s nor his burritos. It was actually pretty amusing to watch 3 white people in a [...]

Ice Cream Watch 2k10, Day 2: Humphry Slocombe Comes to DeLessio

by Andrew Dalton on February 17, 2010

The neighborhood craft ice cream wars are heating up! Yesterday, we had an update on Chile Ice Cream & Pie, which I thought was great because where the fuck do you get ice cream in this neighborhood that isn’t a tub of Chunky Monkey from the corner store? (I mean, besides Three Twins in Lower [...]

Ice Cream Watch 2k10: Chile Ice Cream & Pie Coming Soon [UPDATED]

by Andrew Dalton on February 16, 2010

Spotted this sign and a diligent carpenter with a circular saw outside of the old Green Chile Kitchen space on Fulton and Baker. I’d heard rumors that the place was going to be converted to an ice cream parlor or sorts (from who? Ice Cream Rumormongers, of course!) but it looks like they’re keeping [...]

7×7 Magazine brings us word that our favorite burrito chefs Victor and Miguel Escobedo from Papalote will be featured on an episode of Throwdown with Bobby Flay this Wednesday, Feb 17th on the Food Network. (Does this sound like a commercial to anyone else?)

Alas, Poleng Lounge, We Hardly Knew You

by Andrew Dalton on January 13, 2010

Look, I know that’s not how the quote goes, I watched all four hours of Kenneth Branagh’s Hamlet. NOT THE POINT. The point is Poleng announced today (via Facebook, barf) that 2009 was a little rougher for them than we thought. So the end of January will bring the end of Poleng. This is terrible! [...]

by Andrew Dalton on January 12, 2010

Well, it’s Tuesday and you know what that means? $0.99 2-piece at Popeye’s. But remember! Be timely, because things can start to get nasty when they run out of chicken. Just look at what happened at these fine Popeye’s locations:

Yelp Editor Names “North of the Panhandle” Best Dining Neighborhood. [Facepalm]

by Andrew Dalton on December 31, 2009

Yesterday, EaterSF posted another installation of their year-end throwaway post series “Experts Pick the Year’s Best…” where they email some other food bloggers and chefs with twitter accounts and other people who have a tertiary interest in food service to give vague and lengthy answers on food-related topics from this year. (Such as someone from [...]

Some Lower Haight restaurants people never went to are closing, Eater reports

by Andrew Dalton on December 29, 2009

The economy, you guys! It’s causing restaurants to close their doors! Even ones in our little gourmet ghetto! EaterSF reports that, along with places in some other neighborhoods, some fine Lower Haight establishments that I never had any interest in eating at have shuttered. La Carreta Taqueria, Raja Cuisine of India, and Hanabi Japanese Restaurant [...]

Woe is B’s

by Andrew Dalton on November 23, 2009

If you’ve been wondering why Divis has smelled slightly less like delicious barbecue for the past month, EaterSF has your answer. It seems B’s BBQ won’t be coming back from their “temporary hiatus” that started earlier this month. Instead it looks like their selling the whole deal. I guess not even having a clean bathroom [...]
