Well it’s Thursday, time to start thinking about brunch this weekend

You could stay in the Mission:

Or you could venture up to the Lower Haight:

This literally, is like the best. Yelpers are savage. Totally random.

The Perennial, revolutionary new restaurant from Mission Street Food and Mission Chinese Food founders, opens this week

H_Ospina_Perennial_dining room _109

Been waiting a long time for The Perennial! Here’s the blurb:

Developed by husband-and-wife restaurateurs Anthony Myint and Karen Leibowitz (Mission Street Food, Mission Chinese Food, Commonwealth, etc), The Perennial was designed to lead the restaurant industry toward greater sustainability and deeper engagement with the most pressing issue of our time: climate change. We wanted to build a restaurant that prioritized the environment without sacrificing our culinary values–and then we went ahead and added a sustainable bar!

And check out about the bar:

Bar Director Jennifer Colliau (Small Hand Foods, founder; The Interval) will be using the cocktail program as a way to showcase environmental innovations including rethinking ice use to conserve water and energy. Jennifer will also turn to careful sourcing and in-house production to minimize the bar’s carbon footprint and food waste. For example, she is using a water still to create hydrosols and essential oils from citrus peels, and finding innovative bar-related uses for kitchen scraps.

Sample menus and reservations on the website!

How to make WesBurger’s Tex-Mex Queso Dip at home, perhaps for Christmas dinner?

wes

Wes spilled the beans (lol there’s no beans) to Omar at 7×7, checkitout:

You already know Wes Rowe of Wesburger makes one of the best burgers in San Francisco. Rowe, who hails from Austin, has been doing a weekly pop-up at Mojo for the last two years, and is known for topping his burgers and tots with signature Tex-Mex queso dip. Now you can make your own dip at home (just add chips!)

Wes’s Tex-Mex Queso Dip

Ingredients: 

1lb white American cheese (You must source this from the deli counter, not the cheese aisle! Have them cut you a 1lb block and shred it at home.)

4 oz. asadero cheese shredded

1 jalapeno chopped

1 large ripe tomato

1/4 white onion chopped

1 small bunch cilantro roughly chopped

1 tsp cumin (toast cumin seeds and blend in a spice grinder for a fresher taste)

1/4 cup whole milk

Mmmmm! Read on for the rest of the recipe!

Every thing on the bev and dinner menu will cost $10, and is CASH ONLY. I repeat CASH ONLY, come prepared, so you don’t have to walk up to the gas station:)
