You remember it as Metro Kathmandu. And though not much has changed—same owners, minimal redecorating and they knew better than to mess with any of their signature dumpling-like momos—now you'll also find pastas and tagines. It's the Nepalese-Mediterranean joint you've been waiting for.
Things to do for July 16, 2009
Bottomless Bloodies, Salt House Breakfast and Dueling
The weekend can't stop, won't stop.
Suriya Thai Relocates to SOMA
While Suriya closed its Valencia eatery earlier this year, you'll be glad to know that you can find its famous deep-fried Money Bags and Shrimp Pumpkin Curry on Howard. Not to mention that the parking gods are nicer in these parts.
Getting inside the historic, former money-stocking vaults of private-event space the Old Mint is a rare event, making an insider's look at rarely seen photos, posters and videos of rock legends like the Doors and the Grateful Dead in said vaults worth its weight in gold.
Dishes like Crispy Pork Belly Potato Hash and Morgan's Ham and Eggs Breakfast Sandwich should provide enough of a base to take on four solid hours of Bloody Mary drinking. Order the Wake Up, made with caffeinated Blue Lotus Vodka, and you can pass on coffee.
Sit back and recall your fondest childhood memories—chances are they didn't include cardboard-tube dueling leagues. But that doesn't mean it's not fun: Sunday is the day to check that one off your list.
You've loved lunch at Salt House, and dinner too. So starting Monday, you can pick up breakfast as well. We like the chicken hash/cheddar scrambled egg sandwich—also known as Bob's Buttermilk Sage Biscuit—and a cup of Ritual Roasters coffee. After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
