Isn’t it ironic, dontcha think?
It’s like rain on your wedding day
It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid
Oh wow, man. I’m not used to seeing outer Post Street from the pre-Redevelopment era.
(Then the people from SPUR came along with “ideas and action for a better city” to Urban Renewal this place with big, hulking, earthquake-unsafe buildings (“The Mall Has It All!” – that’s what the SPUR people used to say before they changed their name to hide from their legacy) and garages and that’s where we are today.)
Esquire: “For Sukiyaki complete with chopsticks, visit “Cherryland,” where only Japanese food is served.”
As far as I can tell, but I don’t make it to the outer boroughs all that much these days.
No matter, this place was impressively busy last Sunday

“Sunday 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM Year-round
In the Parking Lot between 8th and 9th Avenue, South of Irving Street Get directions…
The Inner Sunset Farmers’ Market brings fresh, locally-grown fruits and vegetables to you every Sunday, year-round. Join us every week to taste some the best of California’s best”
I wish to declare Burger Urge, of 1599 Haight Street, a tourist trap.

“It was one thing to charge 9-10 dollars for a mediocre burger and another to charge 2 dollars more just to put a slice of cheese on a regular burger, but now some burgers are 13.99?! NO fries, no sides? no sides? It’s an average burger and absolutely not worth the huge spike in prices. I hope the tourists enjoy wasting their Euros and Yen. $13.99? Utter rip off. Get a delicious sandwich across the way at Haight Street Market for $6.50 instead.”
“McDonalds – which is full of crackheads – is a better dining value.”
The People have spoken.
Here’s what it’ll look like, buried deep inside the City Centre Mall at Geary and Maosnic, you now, the former home of Sears and then Mervyn’s and now the current home of City Target West:
And speaking of chain sto’s, drink it up, Gentle Reader:
Now you’d think one person, perhaps just one solitary millionaire NIMBY, would take two minutes to register an objection, but you’d be wrong. WRONG WRONG WRONG! Not a single soul raised a peep, so here comes Chipotle to San Francisco’s District Two.
The gritty nitty from our Planning Commission.
Westeros, the West Side of Frisco, loves, just loves, chain stores, is what I’m saying.
In closing, The Mall Has It All.
Here we go, start reading – this place is horrible.
IMO, San Francisco would be better off without this particular place up in Fisherman’s Wharf, but the Golden Gate Restaurant Association disagrees, oh well.
Of course nobody cares what I think so head on up there and check it out, if you want.
And be sure to try the “unnecessarily complicated Shrimp Louie“
If you want…
On Valencia, natch, at 746.

“The Rebel Within‘ is to die for- it’s $7 but it’s oh so worth it.”
“If you’re going and on the cheap, just go for the Rebel Within. I still have no idea how they baked a pastry yet did a 4-6 minute egg with the yolk still running.”
All right, see you there, I s’pose.
Turns out that four of the 14 judges hail from Estado Libre y Soberano de Tabasco, so that explains the surprise victory.
Cholula’s the fourther, so it gets an AutoPen-signed certificate instead of a medal.
I’m saying very fake, or mostly fake.
Last year, Michael Bauer had the Inside Scoop on the recent Mystery Diners fiasco up at Chapeau! on Clement Street in the Inner Richmond:
“It was halfway into our anniversary dinner when things turned for the worst, as the camera crew from Mystery Diners rushed through the dining room with lights and mikes to catch a naughty bartender/actor in the act of giving away free drinks for a group of fake diners.”
I’ll tell you, I don’t have that cable TV so I can’t actually watch all the fakery, but here’s a quite gullible writer on the topic over at Examiner.Com.
I’m auspicious of this whole deal, I tell you.
Oh, EaterSF has this:
“This is scripted. This would never really happen in Philippe’s restaurant. I live down the street and go there.”
So, have at it, MSM. Philippe himself prolly would have contractual reasons to tell you to go to Hell, but there are other ways of getting a scoop…
Oh, and SFWeekly had this to say about this particular TV series a few years back
In short, I call shenanigans.
