I started this account when I graduated and moved to San Francisco, which was coincidentally around the same time Julian crossed the pond. A few months later, we met by happenstance and I guess it all kicked off from there. Growing up, I wasn’t really interested in food, but that changed when I started appreciating meals as shared experiences. I’ve always maintained this account as a way of documenting these memories, and perhaps this focus has shifted a bit over time, but I think it’s pretty incredible to be able to scroll through our 7 years (so far) together.
Earlier this year, we decided to move to New York, which then quickly happened over the course of a few weeks in the summer. Now that we (including Rogue and Murphy) have settled into our new home and I’ve finally worked through a huge backlog of SF-based photos, I’m ready to start posting about New York’s abundance of good food and drink. But before I do that, I wanted to share some highlights from this account – one from each year:
2012: @littlesheepmongolia San Mateo for lunch. This was at my first job out of college, when I had to commute to Burlingame.
2013: Our first year of the North Beach Festival and smoked turkey legs!!
2014: Brunch at @donpistossf, around when Julian first moved into North Beach.
2015: Our first time at @mr_rintaro. The cheese katsu blew my mind.
2016: One of the funnest omakase meals we’ve ever had, at @omakase_sf. This was the year when a new omakase restaurant would open every 1-2 months, so we ate a LOT of sushi and I posted just as many collages.
2017: Thanksgiving! I started cooking a lot and Thanksgiving was always the biggest “project”. Without fail, I’d preorder a small bird (the size of a large chicken) from @wholefoods.
2018: Probably my favourite tasting menu in SF, @birdsong_sf. Featuring Pacific Northwest ingredients and feelings.
2019: We ate a lot of pasta and pizza throughout our stint in SF, but the most recent new spot we’d been to was @cellarmakerhouseofpizza, which introduced us to the wonders of Detroit-style pizza.
Bonus pics: @outsidelands circa 2013 and me holding a beloved turkey leg at King of Thai, our old post-clubbing stomping ground.

Here Are All the Foods TSA Won’t Let You Bring Through Security #FACTS OCT. 19, 2019 - In the past couple years, the TSA has given its officers the right to have passengers remove food from bags and screen it in a bin. As with most regulations in the airport security realm, this development came without much explanation or fanfare, catching harried travelers off guard
Thankfully, the #TSA maintains a helpful list of non-permissible foodstuffs and drinks on its website. Here are the items you should either leave in the shop, or eat before heading to the airport:
1. Alcoholic beverages over 140 proof
2. Alcoholic beverages in excess of five liters per individual
3. Canned food
4. Olive oil
6. Fresh fruit or vegetables
7. Fresh meat or seafood
8. Peanut butter
10. Creamy cheese
Except for #alcohol over 140 proof, which is just flat-out banned, any liquid above (from canned goods to liquid-solids like creamy #cheese or peanut butter) can be transported in a checked bag. Just make sure to study the TSA’s 3-1-1 rule here. Meanwhile, fresh #fruits and vegetables need to be expertly packaged and non-crushed (otherwise they become a liquid) and fresh meat and #seafood needs to be frozen completely

✏️ One of the most difficult decisions a college student foodie needs to make is to spend around $75 in a single meal on a random dinner night alone or use that money to go to more places, potentially capturing more food items. I did this back in September, and it was a great experience to partake once in a while. You certainly feel really young when everyone else is in their mid 20s or older, dressed formally for a date night or formal event, as you temporarily elevate your status compared to your peers just to look forward and work harder to make this a semi-regular occurrence. #sf#sfeats#bayarea#dryaged#duck#michelin#michelinstar#finedining#fancy#beignets#chocolate
