A houndin' weekend

Fatemeh | Feb 4, 200207:31 PM

Between Randy and Limster, it's proven to be an amazing weekend for hounding.

I myself started 'round 10 on Saturday with a perfect, unpretentious mocha at PickMeUp at 9th & Folsom.

Took the N to Cole Valley for my first visit to Say Cheese... then on to 9th Ave for a grilled cheese & tomato sandwich on huge, fresh slices of honey wheat at Einstein's cafe. Across the street I found Arizmendi - oft mentioned on this board. I have a new addiction - "chocolate things" - those little brioche-style breads studded with deliciously dark chocolate chips.

Popped back on the N heading inbound... on to Hayes Valley. Stopped at Amphora Wine Merchants to pick up a few bottles - found two lovely Spanish wines (Onix Priorat '99, Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha '00) plus a neat Australian white, "Stump Jumper", a 75%/25% blend of Riesling and Marsanne.

Discovered that Moishe's Pippic doesn't tout itself as a NY deli, but CHICAGO! Got a kosher dill to nosh on walking home.

What a day!
