Discoveries during a Sat. stroll 'tween Bart stations.

A. Greek Imports and Meditterean Deli
6524 Mission near Theta
Anyone remember the awful aAcropolis Greek Deli on
Valencia/14th? It landed here w/ last years baklava
and the "whadayawant" service style.

B. Inangs Home-Made Cuisine
6626 Mission across from J&K Auto Repair
I don't know my philipine cuisine but i do recog-
nixe stale cooking oil, greasy steam tables and
old newspapers.

C. Atche Filipino Food Express KapamPangan Cuisine
6771 Mission near Como
papered windows-opening not closing-neither the
postman nor the kid at the liquor store knew when.

D. Egg Roll King
6811 Mission near Westlake
2 for $.99-lite, non-greasy and superfresh.Are they
only made w/ bean sprouts?

E. Red Robin Bake Shop
6877 Mission behind Jollibee
Upmarket Filipino bake shop/take out a la Goldilocks
Franchise spotless w/ perky clerks in uniform.The
Ube Macapuno Roll coverd in whipped cream was
achingly sweet. Unsampled was sansrival,maja pandan
and sago at gulaman.Savory dishes on menu also.

F. Hawaiian Drive Inn #28
50 San Pedro Rd. nr. Mission
The Loco Moco plate lunch ($4.85) came w/ rice &
macaroni salad.The hamburger patty was overdone and
dry-the eggs had a super salty gravy. Maybe there
is good reason why Hawaiian food is scarce in Norcal
The untried dessert was Hawaiian cookie for $2.50

G. Phillipine Grocery
92 Hill off Washington
Super clean store w/ fresh exotic fruits and vege-
tables & large selection of Filipino tinned &
packaged goods.Big take out selection of un-
familiar but fresh looking (and smelling) pre-
pared food.Don't forget a tub of the locally made
garlic peanuts ($1.50)
