Ramen Santouka 山頭火らーめん

There are two rather popular places for ramen in The Central, Clarke Quay. Marutama Ramen and Ramen Santouka. I tried the former almost 2 years ago when it first opened, this one, I only recently discovered. Ramen Santouka is hidden in a corner of The Central, it is necessary to rebuff the advances of the … Continue reading

25 Degrees celsius

A very long while ago, I trawled the net for interesting, funky cafes at which I could chill and people-watch for an afternoon. I chanced upon 25 degrees celsius. I was attracted by its concept – a cafe + cookbook shop. Coffee and food books. whee~ The interior design of the place was modern and … Continue reading


Food ~ how I love thee

Here’s a series of food related outings that I went on. Breakfast in SF. French toasted croissants. I wasn’t too impressed but it seems that I got the wrong dish. We waited 1 hour to get a seat. Le Cheval – Vietnamese restaurant in Oakland. A farewell dinner for a friend who has since gone … Continue reading

Tasty Morsels #10 – Trattoria Corso

Tasty Morsels – Summer edition. There was a new Italian restaurant that I had read about on Shattuck. Apparently, it’s owned by the owner of the rather pricey and very tasty (so I heard) Rivioli on Solano with the top chef coming from another tasty restaurant on College (Oliveto, I think). And so.. Tasty Morsels!! … Continue reading

Blue Bottle Coffee Cafe

It was a foggy Thursday morning when we embarked on a trip to SF for coffee. Mocha! – Smooth, creamy but just a tad to coca-y for me. Slightly bitterish. It has some awesome reviews online though. Breakfast! – Thick toast from Acme with mocha. Yum. I find this endlessly fascinating. Drip coffee? This is … Continue reading

A series of (unofficial) tasty morsels

Dinner at Angeline’s Lousiana Kitchen It was featured on tv just a couple of weeks before we went so it was packed. I had the Shrimp Po-boy. It’s good. =) Crunchy, sweet shrimps sandwiched between fresh bread. Yum. This was a longer while ago. Bette’s Oceanview Diner – Brunch! Milkshake. It seems kinda wrong to … Continue reading


Indian food on Solano. I thought the basmati rice was surprisingly soft and fluffy. Having had my share of dry and hard basmati rice, it never quite occurred to me that it could taste so good.  We shared Badal Jaam – Eggplant with tomato sauce which was pretty interesting. I thought the tangyness of tomato … Continue reading

Juan’s Place – Tasty Morsels #9

Tasty Morsels head for Mexican! Overall, I was quite disappointed. I ordered a fish taco and guacamole tostada. The fish taco was pretty tasteless. The guacamole wasn’t much better. I left most of it on my plate. I must say, the chips were definitely good. Cancun wins hands down. I must remember to revisit Cancun … Continue reading

Sahn Maru

The 小菜 was super awesome! Seafood pancakes. Worth every penny. Very very tasty. It definitely beats the one from Ohgane. Chamonix from La Farine. “Moist devil’s food cake layered with creamy white chocolate raspberry mousse and fresh raspberries, finished with white chocolate buttercream” It’s really good. Sahn Maru 4315 Telegraph Ave. Oakland, CA 94701 (510) … Continue reading
