Pie holds a 'ticular cardiac coordinate for us. Enticing encrusted eats have attracted us to Lauretta Jean's:

... before, but today's slice of tart cherry pie ($4.00):

... was definitely worth the pit stop. Flaky, tender, buttery armor shielded mauve marbles with a relishable restraint in sucrose supplementation.

We need to work our way through the rest of the pie list as well as their enticing quiche assortment.

Aaron writes a distrurbing comment about our lack of posts lately...

What gives Gutenberg? Don't tell us that you've retired! I've been reading this blog for YEARS, and it's such a nice part of my day. I wouldn't be able to take it.



Gutenberg replies:


So sorry buddy. I've been really bad. Travel and too much work, too many planes, too many airports and not enough posts. We'll get back on schedule, fill in the blanks and still not skip a day!

I'm not going anywhere, much less into retirement.

We had a front row seat
to see Corey operate the wood burning stove:

... at Tabor Bread.

We enjoyed out breakfast of toast at this bricky bread birthplace bronzed bumps. The spelt ($5.75):

had a nice chewy texture with nooks to nestle bits of butter while the light rye ($5.50):

... was a denser dough.

They grind their own grains:

... that are encrusted in their rye rinded galette ($4.75):

This petite pomme pie with cranberries and walnuts was a tremendous tart while the kamut shortbread (75¢):

... was a crumbly cravable cookie.

We are seriously impressed by this friction, fire and finesse foundation and will come back soon for more of their staff of life from the lively staff at Tabor.

Virgin is better than Southwest for SFO travel. You can pick up Cowgirl cheese, Acme Bread or Kara's Cupcakes to take on the plane or just sit in the Yoga Room.

We stayed out of the Yoga Room and got some supermarket quality maki ($11.95 and 10.95):

... at Wakaba. The sashimi platter ($13.95):

... was sliced to order but I think the better bets at this Japanese joint would be the rice plates.

The short flight back returned us to the land of tat's and 'staches with a hankering for more San Francisconess soon.

Gooey Gruyere melded mushrooms, pancetta and egg ($9.45):

... in a bitable bullet of breakfasty baguette at Cowgirl Creamery's Sidekick.

This hot helping of cheesy cheer got our day kicked off right.

Our penchant for parklets:

... led us to Blue Fig:

... where a couple bagel-bordered egg sandwiches ($5.75 each):

... were fortifying egg and ham mits. Nothing worth a detour, but this al fresco breakfast fueled us for more MIssion district matters.

We cut over to a corner of the Ferry Building to visit the Biscuit Bender booth:

... where puffs of powder plugs were purveyed.

The sausage biscuit ($3.50):

... was a lofty little loaf of crustiness that pinned our palates with this meat-mingled, savory stump.

Biscuit Bender is a nice addition to the Ferry Building bread-based businesses.

Our pals took us to StrEAT Food:

...where we dug into swell fish tacos:

... and crunchy-crusted, juicy fried chicken:

... from Lets Eat Grill Stop:

... Juju balls:

... that looked like aranci but were mashed potatoes and battered and fried green beans:

... from VooDoo Van.

We then trucked over to another food pod at DiMaggio Park:

... to get some gooey gobs of warm chocolate chip and ginger cookies:

... hot chocolate and hot cookie custard:

... at Cookie Time!

This mobile munching march made us wish we had a longer lag time before boomeranging back to PDX.




  Friday, November 23, 2012

There was a half hour Blue Bottleneck:

... before we made our way up the queue for a couple Gibraltars ($3.00 each):

This localized liquid propelled us back from Portland partnered with a hot waffle ($3.00):

This hot from the iron, sugar-dusted cranny collection boasted a balanced batter with crisp edges delivered in BB's filter folio.

We then made a curdsy call to Cowgirl Creamery to whey in before a wonderful din at friends in Berkeley.

We had 2 reasons to stop by for our 3 Babes Bakeshop pies at 18 Reasons: pumpkin: salted walnut:

These celebratory specimens accompanied us to J & K's where a fantastic feast filled our foundations.

Serious fun and excellent chow were enjoyed til the wee hours.

"Code Blue!!! Everybody freeze!!" yelled a TSA agent causing the whole security section of PDX to become deer in headlights.

Our freaky flashmob broke into silence but this game of red light/green light didn't turn out to be a threat to homeland security. The dull resolution to this event was echoed in a Cobb salad ($10.95):

... at Rouge.

There was no concealed cargo in this loveless luggage that carried on with an abbreviation of avocado, bacon and chicken. Chopped lettuce packing material dominated this lagging lunch.

The chicken pita ($9.50):

... had the same cardboard flavored chicken. Thankfully there were potato chips to add the interest of salt to this grounded grub.

Our captive cuisine was predictably poor, but the woman who served it up acknowledged everyone without a hint of desperation in this mobbed midpoint where everyone was eventually subjected to their food.
