Gracing the deli counter at Duc Loi market are the guys from Mission Street Food, serving up 1/3-pound burgers made of brisket, short ribs, and chuck and seared in beef fat. There's also a vegan burger, but if you're looking to get your veggies, we recommend the fries.
Things to do for August 28, 2009
Beef-Fat Burgers, Whole-Roasted Pig and Breakfast at Bars
The weekend is all about the weekend.
Flowers, chocolate and cupcakes are surefire ways to impress a woman (along with your charming wit, of course). So this pop-up bakery in a former flower stand has your back. Pick up cupcakes and brownies for her, then snag a few secret-recipe Sand Angels (a snickerdoodle/molasses cookie hybrid) for the road.
The August fog is giving way to September sun right about now. So you might want to pick up a few things at Rolo like choice Filippa K classics, some G-Star jeans and jackets along with select Nom de Guerre, Acme and Band of Outsiders at 50 percent off. Because summer is the new fall.
In honor of this Italian feast day, there'll be a whole pig roasted in a Cuban La Caja China box (the Cadillac of roasting boxes), along with grilled Padrón peppers, sausages, and the usual menu of pizza and salads and plenty of vino. Then take a cue from the Italians and extend the celebration for the entire month.
This East Bay wine bar that also serves breakfast, lunch and dinner is a concept we'd like to see more of. In the meantime, this is your spot for about eight different wines on tap, small plates and the option of outside seating under the sun—another thing we'd like to see more of.
