When most people think of the Baja region of Mexico, what usually comes to mind are nights of partying, boozing and jumping from bar to bar by local college kids willing to cross the border to find a good time. Delicious food and culinary finds may not be words you'd associate with cities like Tijuana, Ensenada and any other small towns in between. It wasn't until I took a whirlwind one day excursion with Tasty Tours led by Bill Esparza down to Baja, that my eyes were finally opened to many tasty possibilities. The morning started with us driving into Tijuana and starting with what I'll refer... Read More
Today was a typical morning for me and I rolled out of bed with great expectation and with supreme enthusiasm only to discover that my chocolate sushi bar had been raided by my nieces and nephews last night (all the delicious candy was gone).
As a chocolate lover I was sort of bereaved and stood beside myself with grief as the constant urge for my synthetic high took over my senses, I really wanted to chastise them for being so inconsiderate but I just decided to change the location of my stash the next time they are over to spend the night.
I recognize this was a big deal to... Read More
Ahhh Cheese. Just thinking about its ooey gooey melted goodness makes my mouth water. I do believe cheese may be the world's most perfect food. It's all natural and comes from cows. Of course lots of other good stuff comes from cows, things like milk and steak, but cheese takes the cake. Speaking of cake, let's talk about my favorite food to ever be made with cheese. I am speaking of course about cheesecake. Glorious, glorious cheesecake. Is there a better food known to man? I think not. You can try to argue the opposite, but I won't listen because you will just be wasting your breath.... Read More
There are some really great chefs hosting some amazing cooking shows on TV right now. They make great food and some of them aren't too hard on the eyes. My fiance won't admit it, but I know she has a crush on Tyler Florence, who used to do a show called Food 911 on the Food Network and now hosts Tyler's Ultimate. Whenever she watches his show, she starts to salivate. And I have a feeling she's not drooling over the recipes. My personal favorite is Giada De Laurentiis. She makes wonderful dishes, primarily Italian cuisine, but she's also really hot. One thing you'll notice when you see Giada's... Read More
Although San Francisco's Marina District is no stranger to outstanding Japanese food (There must be no less than 50 California-style sushi bars between Lombard and Chestnut Streets), there has always been an enormous lack of upscale fusion places in the area. Well, that gap just closed a little with a great new restaurant called Hime, which opened late last year and has received nothing but rave reviews. Renowned Chef Eichii Mochizuki has created an eatery that is ideal for both adventurous foodies and the dining audience in general. We ate there recently and our taste buds went ballistic....

Cafe Zoetrope is owned by the legendary film director and winemaker Francis Ford Coppola, who made films like The Godfather, Apocalypse Now and Bram Stoker's Dracula. It's named after his famous production company and is located in the majestic Sentinel Building in the heart of San Francisco's North Beach. Like an entertaining movie, this place has an opening, a plot and a fulfilling conclusion, all of which will send you home saying "Bravo! Bravo!" Cafe Zoetrope pulls you in with its warm and inviting d'cor, wows you with professional and attentive service, and then satisfies you with its... Read More
Asia SF represents what San Francisco stands for on so many levels. Itâ€™s a wild combination of sexy, forbidden, naughty, unique, tasty and hip. The food has been described as Cal-Asian cuisine, and the entertainers are called gender illusionists, but Asia SF is basically great grub and grand drag. Almost eight years ago, Owners Larry Hashburger and Skip Young opened this place, and this restaurant/lounge/dance club instantly became a SF entertainment landmark. Itâ€™s a super popular spot for bachelor, bachelorette and birthday parties and the staff there really knows how to deal with big,... Read More
