Sandwich Travels

August is National Sandwich month! Despite not being a huge fan of sandwiches, there are many that I love around the world and I thought it would be fun to share my favorites. France - my absolute favorite is ham and butter on a baguette, a classic.  When I first move to France I thought this was the most bizarre combination, that is, until I tasted it. Forget mustard. Forget mayonnaise. The … [Read more...]

Hawaiian in San Francisco

We've got EVERYTHING in San Francisco when it comes to food. Name a type of food and I bet we've got that. That means Hawaiian too.  Of course, here in the city, we are only 5 hours from the islands, but when we can't get there and are craving the island's culinary delights, we've got options! If you are seeking ono (delicious) Hawaiian in San Francisco, look no further than these … [Read more...]

Upcoming SPAM Misadventures

It's so funny how life is a series of little events all strung together. I don't often think of SPAM, I do like it, but it is not in Mr. Misadventures repertoire and he does all the cooking in our household! For the most part I usually eat it in the form of musubi (pictured above) from food trucks in San Francisco.  But I also love it in fried rice and with eggs (but then again, I love anything … [Read more...]

Great Grilled Cheese in San Francisco

Ah, the classic grilled cheese...I grew up with Velveeta, so my cheese sandwiches were melted Parkay butter, a slice of Velveeta melted to perfection with a squirt of ketchup.  And even though even I don't make them that often any more, I've graduated to a good cheddar, real butter, and SOSU sriracha ketchup. Sometimes I will throw in an egg in too, but then I am not sure that is technically still … [Read more...]

Interview with Courtney Taira of King’s Hawaiian

I think I have mentioned before that my Mom's side of the family are Portuguese immigrants with family from the Azores Islands. In the San Francisco Bay Area there was (I am not sure how large it is now) a huge Portuguese community and in particular Portuguese Catholic.  Every town had a St. Anthony's Portuguese Catholic Association and a hall. Those halls were magical places where people … [Read more...]

Pau Hana Market Waikiki

After a gallon of wine tasting with Colgin Cellars and Kermit Lynch I needed food!  Right around the corner from the Halekulani hotel where the wine events had taken place is a new food truck area called Pau Hana Market Waikiki.  Currently with seven trucks and more to come you, this food truck court offers a great way to sample the local Hawaiian food scene with ramen, loco moco and lunch plates … [Read more...]

Bits of Boston

Towards the end of October, I traveled to Boston for a week.  It was a busy five days with work and a conference, but I had a great time and wanted to share some highlights.  Of course the World Series was also going on so that added to the excitement! [Yes I realize I am woefully behind on posts, but I am catching up slowly but surely!] I flew in on Saturday so that my girlfriend and I could … [Read more...]

36 Hours in Portland

At the beginning of October I went to Portland for 36 hours.  I was there for work and my schedule was packed but when I was not working I was eating (and even sometimes when I was working!).  I love Portland and the Pacific Northwest in general.  As I have mentioned before this area of the US feels like home to me.  It is the region that Mr. Misadventures and I will mostly likely retire to one … [Read more...]

San Francisco Bites – Roli Roti Porchetta Sandwich and Happy Birthday Ferry Building

All my attempts to capture one of the best San Francisco food truck items (the other two being baos from The Chairman and fried chicken from Arki) have been complete failures so I am showcasing this gorgeous image of Roli Roti's famous porchetta sandwich from I Left My Cart in SF instead. Tomorrow is the 20th anniversary of the Ferry Building in San Francisco and I wanted to take a moment to … [Read more...]

Friday Food Foto – The Madd Phoenix

This behemoth from Adam's Grub Truck is called the Madd Phoenix made up of Five Spices Chicken on a brioche bun with pepper jack cheese, a fried egg, Asian slaw and avocado wasabi. It was just too large to really enjoy. It was a week full of food truck adventures, most of them not that great.  Like any new "restaurant," there are hits and misses.  There are now three spots in walking distance … [Read more...]
