7×7 Feature

We recently were contacted by 7×7 magazine for a feature on an upcoming blog post of theirs.  The article was about a few different SF blogs that were also eating their way through the Big Eat List like we are.  We’re proud to be mentioned and want to thank 7×7 for the love!

Here is our portion of the post:

“Alex and Kristina are relatively new to SF, and to get to know our fabulous city they decided to eat their way through the 2011 Big Eat, reviewing our picks as they go. 

Number of dishes tackled so far: 50 

Favorite item yet: 

“The Hamburguesa at Don Pistos. This was a very tough decision that involved much hand wringing, cursing and tears. We were torn between the Tuna tostada from Tacolicious and the Tonkatsu ramen at Izakaya Sozai as well, but the hamburguesa just packs this unique, meaty flavor explosion that we’ve never encountered before. We’re also huge fans of Don Pistos as a whole, so we’d have to go with that.”

Dish they would nominate for next year:

“The Tea Leaf Salad at Burma Superstar. This is another dish that stands out for the unique flavor and great texture balance. Excellent example of a dish being greater than the sum of its (many) parts.”

Thanks again 7×7 and loyal readers!
