One of my favorite things to eat in San Francisco is the bread. It’s just fantastic out here. So, I walked over to the basement of the Macy’s in Union Square and visited the Boudin Cafe.

After getting up at 4 in the morning for our flight out to San Francisco, my wife and I decided that we needed to eat burgers. So, we went to a place that my wife knew of that is near her company’s offices in San Francisco.

Lakeview East Festival of the Arts

By the time Labor Day rolls around, I’m usually pretty much streetfaired out. But, with the baby and with the way it’s been particularly hot this summer, we haven’t been to as many streetfairs. So, when my in-laws came to visit over the weekend and we had some relatively balmy weather on the forecast, we decided to head to a streetfair that was just down the street from our place.

I wanted to do something a little different than the usual summer cookout, but because there’s no real tables to eat at on our roof (just living room-ish outdoor furniture), the food had to be relatively finger friendly. So, I decided I would turn kalbi into tacos.

Baked Tortilla Chips

I wanted to make a non-Doritos based version of walking tacos. And after much internal debate over what kind of chips to use, I ultimately decided I would make my own. But, it’s friggin hot around here, so there was no way I was going to get a deep fryer going in my ventless kitchen in my non-central air apartment. So, baked tortilla chips.
