Big Mouth Burgers in San Francisco is the 2nd location of this family owned burger restaurant. The original location in San Bruno has been open since 1997. The burger that drew me here initially was The Hangover ($9.75), which had been recommended to me by many. It’s a herculean burger, whose name holds true and […]

This past weekend’s Mission Street Food featured guest chef Chad Newton of Fish & Farm, home to San Francisco’s best burger. He’s worked at Postrio, Redd, and Baraka and was joined by Grace Nguyen of Out the Door. Mission Street Food is a popup restaurant that features rotating chefs and menus each time, and they […]


If you read my article on the McDonald’s Mc10:35, you know that I’m a fan of secret menu items and crazy food collaborations. What you see here is neither secret nor crazy, it’s just fun. What you see here is a marriage of two Mission staples, Anthony’s Cookies and Humphry Slocombe. This idea (I kid […]


I love Bi-Rite, almost as much as I love Mitchell’s Ice Cream and just a tad bit more than Humphry Slocombe. Roasted banana and salted caramel give my sweet tooth a damn near orgasm every time. I also love soft serve ice cream, there’s something about it that evokes childhood memories of ordering soft serve […]


Mission Mission recently shared a drawing by local artist Mike Giant that depicts what he believes is “The Modern San Franciscan” woman. There’s a pretty intense comment war going on at Mission Mission, over what it means to be a “real” San Franciscan. Some of my favorite comments: aim says: I don’t even know what […]


The beloved Poleng Lounge officially shut it’s doors back in January, and co-owner Desi Danganan has been busy trying to get a new venture up and running. SF Weekly’s John Birdsall previously reported that he was considering an opportunity in the Mission. We now know that the new venture will be an art bar and […]

When I first heard that Iron Chef Bobby Flay was doing a burrito throwdown on his Food Network show “Throwdown with Bobby Flay,” I immediately felt bad for whoever he was going up against. His Southwest style of cooking is heavily influenced by Mexican and Latin American cuisine, so I expected him to be comfortable […]

Item: #52 Coconut Buns, $0.50 each Where: King’s Bakery on Mission St. between 24th and 25th King’s Bakery is a divey Chinese-owned bakery hidden among the throngs of Mexican-owned and operated shops surrounding it. Though it’s Chinese owned, most of its baked goods are traditional Mexican pastries, obviously catering to the local demographic. However, the […]


The U.S. enjoys an average of 48 pints of ice cream per person, per year, more than any other country.  That’s over 30 million pints consumed in San Francisco alone!  This is a fact I’m sure the Mitchell family knows all too well. Mitchell’s Ice Cream has been a San Francisco dessert destination for nearly […]


I make no secret of my disdain for cupcakes. They are the most overrated thing since, well, take your pick – the Lakers (self-explanatory), Apple (doesn’t make you cool), fixed gear bikes (there are hills in San Francisco), Entourage (you’re not Ari Gold), and froyo (it’s fucking froyo). However, that doesn’t mean cupcakes aren’t good. […]
