Rosamunde Sausage Grill

>> Saturday, March 23, 2013

Friend, there are fewer finer things in this world than well made pork products. Sausages to be precise.

Yes, crafted from humble ingredients in a laborious and painstaking fashion, sausages are among my favorite porky products. It takes a certain finesse to transcend a good sausage into a great sausage. Arguably, Rosamunde has been able to achieve this. I've been excited to go to Rosamunde for quite some time now. The web has been buzzing about it ever since the Haight Street location made a name for itself. The newer Mission location couldn't be in a better spot and fits in with the cheap eats of the neighborhood.

I made the journey to the Mission spot on a late weekday afternoon. The lunch rush had long passed so only a few patrons were sitting at the bar. With no one waiting in line I asked the lady at the register a little bit about the selection. She was super informative and knew what the qualities were for each variety. She asked whether I wanted something on the savory, sweet, or spicy side.


Purple Kow

>> Saturday, March 16, 2013

San Francisco seems to be going through a sudden tapioca ball phase. I've noticed a boom of shops popping up all over the place. I am all for this new customized handcrafted approach that started with Tea Way. The unique twist on flavors and premium ingredients has definitely been long overdue.

Purple Kow is in a quite part of San Francisco not far from George Washington High School. In terms of location they picked a fantastic location that generates just enough foot traffic. The interior is brightly lit with a modern feel crafted only by the finest workers of Ikea. It's a tad cramp and the room can feel rather narrow during peak hours.

Speaking of peak hours, this place is notorious for having a ridiculously long wait. I really don't understand why this place hasn't fixed the issue despite being open for quite some time. It's pretty simple, stagger the line by adding another register to take more orders at once. Then set up drink making process in a factory line format. Sigh. The efficiency worker in me cries while watching the folks behind the counter.
