Behind My Last Localwise Post – Mission Ice Cream!
Posted in : Dining in San Francisco - CA, Grab and Go, Ice Cream Parlors, Restaurants, Travel on by : The Gourmez

My last Localwise post actually went up in November….and I seriously have not had time to promote it until now! It’s been an insane couple of months, for sure. I also, admittedly, wasn’t in a rush to do so because ice cream is the theme and that’s not a typical holiday post. But it’s January

La Bedaine

La Bedaine
Posted in : Bakeries, Grab and Go on by : The Gourmez

La Bedaine is a tiny French bakery on the outside, but on the inside, it specializes in French cuisine that you can take home to cut a few steps out of dinner. That means vacuum-packed meals such as duck confit and coq au vin. For simple meanderers, such as myself, La Bedaine’s cheery yellow display

I tried out the cupcakes at this local bakery stand inside the NewPark Mall (directly under the food court) after an open mic night with the Fremont Writers’ Club. The pretty, pretty cupcakes on display drew me in; I’m a sucker for a gorgeous cupcake, although the wares often don’t deliver on the visual appeal.

Tartine Bakery

Tartine Bakery
Posted in : Bakeries, Grab and Go on by : The Gourmez

It’s always refreshing to find a place that lives up to the hype, and Tartine Bakery qualifies. One of my North Carolina food-writing friends was visiting California (check Kristen out at GadaboutFood!), and she invited me along to try this small bakery in the Mission District that has made a million top ten lists for
