  • Time to come clean about that amazing banh uot place.
SFoodie editor John Birdsall and our contributing bloggers seem to know what's happening in the bistro/food cart scene within moments of it happening. But that's only one frequency at which San Francisco restaurant gossip transmits. After almost four years away from the Bay Area, I'm looking to tune back in to the other frequencies, too.

Are your parents raving about last week's meal at a Sunset restaurant whose new chef just arrived from Southeast China? Has your boyfriend just taken you to a Daly City place that his sister swore made a proper caldo de pata? Did your coworker just talk up the banh uot at an Excelsior cafe? I ― and, by extension, SF Weekly readers ― want to hear about it. Feel free to email me at or, if you're on Twitter, DM me at @JonKauffman.
