Fieri finds the ultimate dessert: Maple Bacon Donuts

Say hello to one of the most delicious (or disgusting, depending on your mood) goodies I’ve seen yet on Food Network’s hit series – Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives: the Maple Bacon Donut. That’s right. Maple. Bacon. Donut. Mmmmmm. (For the record, they looked even better on TV).

8-Bit Oven Mitt: Now You’re Cooking With Power!

ThinkGeek never ceases to amaze me with its never-ending selection of novelty geekeries. Take this 8-bit oven mitt, for example…how rad is that?! Not since the original NES has 8-bit looked so good.

Add a little more Star Wars to your diet…

1 hour and 2.5 amazing pupusas (with rice and beans) later, I had been converted.  El Zocalo offers delicious traditional El Salvadorian and Mexican food at very …

Burma Superstar > B Star

Looking forward to a delicious meal at Burma Superstar is always bittersweet – while the food may be really tasty, arriving any time after 5:30pm (F-Sun) almost always means waiting an hr+ to be seated.
Such was the case this evening.  However this time, a new sign marked the doorway – 1.5 blocks away was another …

Ristorante Milano

Last night, we ate at one of the highest (Yelp) rated Italian restaurants in San Francisco, Ristorante Milano.
Located in Nob Hill, this surprisingly little joint served up some of the best Italian cuisine I’ve had in SF.
