farm:table (San Francisco: Tenderloin)

By in 04: SF+Bay Area, Favorite Food Entries

We found a very lovely breakfast joint near the scary Tenderloin district in San Francisco called farm:table. This European style breakfast place is very small  and only features seasonal menu with quirks and personality….sounds like a instant Potatomato favorite already. The kitchen is small but open!

The Table (Hong Kong: Causeway Bay)

By in 09: Hong Kong

Last morning in Hong Kong. We won’t waste any last minute shopping, but alas, most shops don’t opened till noon or 1:00pm. We needed a place to hang out for awhile, any Hong Kong style joint are out of question (most restaurants don’t open until 11-noon) . We can’t possibly go to Starbucks!? (which is crowded […]
