Overheard on the San Francisco Bay Area Board

"The very nice proprietress said that she has some specialities which aren't on the menu, including giant African land snail and a 'village stew' of oxtail, shrimp, and periwinkles." – alfredck on Miliki in Oakland

"We started with the easy cheese revisited, labeled as house-fried potato chips with cheddar béchamel. Trashy but tasty." – Frosty Melon on Straw, the new local, organic diner with a carnival theme

"The white bean soup, only available on weekends, is worth a visit all on its own. White beans, a bit of chile, and some stewed, melt in your mouth lamb. Just delicious." – maigre on Ephesus in Mountain View
