A meander around the world of my life (edible, mostly).

Invading Italians

Tonight I went with Noor and her Italian friends Matteo and Lucca to Mad Dog in the Fog, an English pub. We went with Ara, Vaman, Jimi, and Iris... and then all left to go across the street to eat at Mystic Pizza. Not the best pizza place, but I was starving and happy to eat. At the left you can see Ara the Swan searching for Pizza Pebbles. Apparently Swans like Ara eat Pizza Pebbles.

Oh yeah, and the pizza was called the Haight. We had a lot of fun calling people out when they spilled pizza on another. "Hey, why you gotta Haight on me?"

After that, Noor and I and the Italians all went to the Marina to Bar None, where, apparently, more Italian speaking people were hiding. I ran into a friend who went to Florence last spring (I keep seeing this girl in the randomest of places), and then, we met these kids from Chico who studied in Torino for 9 months. So, lots of Italians went around, and a few Hefeweizens.

As Vaman says, "everyone is united in my stomach." I like that thought. He says you can eat Pakistani and Indian food at the same time and feel happy.

Italian Nights, Thai Dinners

Tonight I went out to eat at a Thai restaurant somewhere in Lower Pac Heights. I can't remember the name of it, which probably doesn't matter too much since it wasn't too exciting. A good neighborhood restaurant.

However, I went with two Italian friends of a friend, which was quite enjoyable. Tomorrow we're all going out somewhere with another 5 people, and hopefully I'll bring my camera to that place. Which reminds me, I better make sure that camera's charged...

Here's a photo for fun, from last fall (2004). It's my favorite local Gastronomia in Florence... where I would go sometimes for lunch while at the Stanford center there. Those were the days...

I'm Tired

And so I'm going to bed. And I will try not to post every single event. This blog will try to lean towards food-side, and hopefully (one day) I'll be posting most everything I eat. That should be interesting.

Until then, ta ta,


A tantalizing start: To the left we see Vaman about to dig in to a dinner at Pakwan, on Monday 22 August 2005.

Hey kids!

This is my first ever blog post. It sounds odd, because I should have had one over 5 years ago. Oh well.
