AMA: Arizona Part Deux
How we choose families for Family Dinner, where to eat in SFO, and affordable food cities
It’s Ask Me Anything Friday and I am on the road. Again.
This time I’m in Tucson, for the first disc golf convention. I’m a disc golf nerd.
A reader asked how we select families for “Family Dinner.” I wish we could make an episode for everyone’s family because it is a challenge to turn down amazing applicants and their stories. Everyone has a story to tell.
Another reader asked for recommendations in San Francisco. These are all great neighborhoods to burrow in: Noe Valley, the Tenderloin, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Mission, Chinatown. And here’s a laundry list of must-try restaurants: Osito, Sula, Empress by Boon, Tenderheart, Nari, Sorella, Acquerello, Benu, Atelier Crenn, Californios, Swan Oyster Depot, Palette Tea House, Mourad, Bodega, Waterbar, State Bird, Ju-Ni, Tartine Manufactory, Angler, Taqueria, Fiorella, Mister Jiu’s, Nopalito, Frances, Quince, Delfina, Lazy Bear, Lers Ros Thai.
That’s a good start. Have a great weekend all! See you next week.
People ask how I do it all. The truth is, I don’t. For a few dollars a month, you can support Spilled Milk and the team that makes it.
I love Family Dinner. How do you choose what families you visit?
We are headed to San Francisco for the first time and don’t know where to start with food. What neighborhoods do you suggest eating in? We love all foods.
Remember, paying subscribers can send me their AMA questions! This is my favorite part of the week, seriously. Thank you. What else do you want to see on Spilled Milk? Let me know!
Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market has so many food adventures under one roof/outdoor area. From rotisserie porchetta, to freeze dried satsumas dipped in chocolate ( Happy Apple Farmer) to sweet risotto tart at Frog Hollow to candied salmon ....all sorts of panna cotta at various restaurants Togo section... Cowgirl Creamery!! All the cheeses. So Fun.
Of course the chocolate shops and bakeries are all spectacular (especially in the Mission)
Eat Rite Creamery has a cream brulee ice cream that still boggles my mind....how do the shards of burnt sugar remain crisp.
Berkeley is great too, especially grocery stores. Well and Chez Panisse
I used to work in the Book Business, hearing you talk about being at a convention, made me think of the amazing Swag we left with from Book conventions! We actually had to ship books home we recd so many.
So much fun! Hope you were all equally sprinkled with disc golf gear.
Ate my first sushi in San Francisco, looong time ago. And leave that beautiful city every time looking forward to coming back.
