New L.A. Breweries, Nitro Merlin + January Anniversaries

by Sean Inman @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

Someone “liberated” a “tarantula” in a “common space” in “Hermosa” while a “Dojo” searches for Dankness masters, but it all flows back to the fact that it is “Chinatown.” Yes, that was a bit of tortured prose, but references some new breweries that are planning on opening in 2018. A partial list of interest includes the following breweries. Tarantula Hill Brewing Company will be the first brewery in Thousand Oaks thanks to a 2016 change in zoning regulations. Named after the tallest point in Thousand Oaks, this possible July opener will also serve Neapolitan pizza and homemade ice cream. Common Space Brewery will be joining Hawthorne’s suddenly hot scene this fall, following L.A. Ale Works to the land of SpaceX. Liberation Brewing Company adds to the growing list of Long Beach breweries when it lands in the city’s Bixby Knolls area. The brewery is fronted by Dan Regan, former member of renowned local ska band, Reel Big Fish. Hermosa Brewing Company eschews the beach moniker and will also be serving up food alongside beer. They look to be opening earlier this year, rather than later. Modern Times will be opening their first Los Angeles location, the Dankness Dojo, at Olive...

For the love of pho / We scour S.F.'s Little Saigon to find the best Vietnamese beef noodle soup

For the love of pho / We scour S.F.'s Little Saigon to find the best Vietnamese beef noodle soup


SFGate

Most of us don't eat pho, the aromatic Vietnamese beef noodle soup, the way Thy Tran did when she was a high school kid growing up in Missouri. [...] when Tran was late for school, rather than go hungry she'd balance a big bowl of pho in her lap to gulp down as she drove her VW bug to class. Heading to Larkin Street in San Francisco is arguably a safer way to eat pho -- pronounced fuh, rhymes with huh -- and we are sitting with Tran in Turtle Tower, where there is always a crowd of people with their faces lowered to big steaming bowls of pho. Tran, director of The Chronicle's cooking school, is lending us her expertise on one leg of our month-long pho-a-thon through the Tenderloin. Americans are crazy about pho these days; chains like the San Jose-based Pho Hoa are proliferating, with 25 branches in 12 states, including ones that opened in Berkeley last year and Folsom this year. Sai Gon Nho banners along the stretch from McAllister to O'Farrell streets, we thought it was time to see how deserved the bragging rights really are. Beef pho comes in multiple variations, allowing you to choose how you want your meat: rare, well-cooked, as beef balls, tripe, tendon or a sinewy cut called flank that is often served in a spiral of meat, fat and skin. Its success lies in a balance of well-made broth, noodles, beef and accents. While Americans are embracing pho as a fast food, a well-made bowl is all about the broth, and that means simmering bones and meat for hours. In the pot, too, are charred ginger and onions and, usually, star anise, cloves and other warm spices. [...] there's the original delicate style from Northern Vietnam, and the spicier version from the South, where people add more herbs and sauces to their soup. The difference was clear in visits to Northern-influenced Turtle Tower on Larkin Street, our overall favorite, where the broth is light and golden. At Hung Ky and Pho Hoa, two other favorites, the broth is darker and more intense, with emphatic salt, star anise and tiny chunks of ginger. Star anise and other spices shouldn't dominate, but serve more as undertones, says Mai Pham, Chronicle columnist, author of "Pleasures of the Vietnamese Table," and chef-owner of Lemon Grass Restaurant in Sacramento. Sweetness is often the telltale sign of MSG, the flavor enhancer Vietnamese call "sweet powder," and this was evident at several restaurants we tried. Pham says a true pho should consist of 1 part noodles to 4 parts broth, but Americanized versions tend to load up on the noodles, even though that can make for a bland bowl. [...] there's the beef, which at most pho houses you can tailor to your liking, picking from up to a dozen cuts for contrasting flavors and textures. Other beef cuts go by familiar names, even though the pieces may not always look familiar to Westerners because Asian butchers cut meat differently than the standard supermarket. [...] the beef balls -- sausage-like and spicy -- should be bouncy, but not so dense that your jaw hurts chewing them. Getting all of this just right is like learning to ride a bicycle -- there are a lot of moving parts, but when everything works it's glorious. All the components, at their best, are artfully arranged, with a bright scattering of chopped cilantro and scallions (or thinly sliced red onions) on top. At most restaurants, a plate of fresh herbs will arrive along with your pho -- almost invariably basil, bean sprouts, slices of jalapeno, and a wedge or two of lime (sometimes lemon, but it should be lime). Sriracha, hoisin and other sauces on the table are for jazzing up lackluster or unbalanced broth or for dipping the meat. The contrast was extreme at Vietnam II, but even at some of our top picks, with the exception of Turtle Tower and Pho Kien Giang, the pho varied from visit to visit. Very appealing beef -- beef balls are smoky, tripe is crunchy, tendon is soft and the rare beef arrives rosy. -- Dac biet -- special combination, usually meaning rare beef, brisket, flank, tripe, tendon and beef balls Combine the chicken with the onion, ginger, star anise, cloves, cinnamon, peppercorns and 10 cups cold water. Bring just to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer gently for 15 minutes, skimming foam that rises. [...] soak the rice noodles in a large bowl of cold water for 30 minutes; drain in a colander. Drain in the colander and rinse very well with cold water to stop the cooking and to remove excess starch. When the soup returns to a boil, quickly ladle the broth and meat over the bowls of noodles. Serve immediately, offering the garnishes, chili sauce and additional fish sauce at the table for guests to add according to taste. PER SERVING: 515 calories, 34 g protein, 70 g carbohydrate, 9 g fat (2 g saturated), 69 mg cholesterol, 747 mg sodium, 2 g fiber.

Trust Way Burger (Dose of Vitamin P)

by Joshua Lurie @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

Weekend brunch is a way of life in laid-back San Diego. After training for triathlons, going for their morning jog, or catching a few waves, people flood open-air restaurants to refuel (and then some). I’m not even training for anything, but was happy to carbo- and protein-load at TRUST Restaurant in an industrial, mixed-use Hillcrest building. Brad Wise runs TRUST and nearby Hundred Proof. His original restaurant features a glass and steel patio with red chairs; the dining room touts an open kitchen and diagram of pork parts, one of which tops a devastating “Trust Way” burger. Wood Grilled Burger ($14) is a beast at its core, with a juicy, well-seared patty piled with Asiago cheese, savory bacon-tomato jam, tangy pickled onions, and arugula on a soft poppy seed bun that soaks up the beef’s juices. Sure, each burger comes with skin-on French fries, but you should also bolster your burger by ordering Trust Way ($3). That means with house-cured, braised bacon and a sunny side egg that washes over the burger’s substantial, but balanced ingredients. Dose of Vitamin P spotlights my favorite pork dish from the previous week.

Tatang Li-em-po (Dose of Vitamin P)

by Joshua Lurie @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

A North Hollywood strip mall best known for Vallarta Supermarkets is now home to one of the Valley’s best Filipino restaurants: Tatang. Chef JR Martin and wife Chiho honor their cultural heritage in modern ways while tipping their caps to the past. The name Tatang translates from Tagalog to English as father. In this case, the father is JR’s late grandfather, dad to 16 children, including Martin’s mom, the family’s eldest child. From Tatang’s grill, I’d recommend ordering Li-em-po ($6.95). Thin slabs of heritage pork belly are marinated in tart calamansi juice, soy sauce, black pepper, garlic, and some water to thin out the sodium. Bellies are grilled until charred bits form, sliced into this strips that take dips in spicy vinegar, and served with cooling tomatoes. Dose of Vitamin P spotlights my favorite pork dish from the previous week.

Ironsmith Coffee Roasters Turmeric Ginger Latte (Drink of the Week)

by Joshua Lurie @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

I’ve recently been visiting Ironsmith Coffee Roasters in Encinitas on Sundays to enjoy delectable baked goods from Crystal White and Wayfarer Bread, but the coffee bar is worth visiting in its own right. Raul Macias and Matt Delarosa launched Ironsmith to start 2015 and they’ve managed to accomplish a lot in a small space on Coast Highway. The art-lined cafe with black steel and light wood color scheme roasts coffee beans in-house and brews using a variety of methods. They take the process seriously and consider artistry when presenting drinks, even coffee-free drinks. Turmeric Ginger Latte ($5) is a recent triumph featuring raw spices, honey, and a choice of milk. Each latte is available either hot or over ice. Order the drink hot and each latte is steamed with a little bit of coconut oil to help the flavors bind together. The kicker is a fresh-cracked black pepper shower that adds contrast and a bit more spice.

2018 Beer Predictions, Nice Chucks + January Plan

by Sean Inman @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

It is time to gaze into the crystal ball. Don’t shake it or the yeast will start swirling amidst the hazy IPA inside. Here is what I think could happen in the world of independent beer in 2018. 1. Each year it seems that breweries get the idea that they should sell to the large Los Angeles beer market. We reap the benefit for a few months, but then the distribution flags and poof!; the brewery retreats. I expect this to happen again, but with more breweries flowing out than coming in for the first time. 2. 22-ounce bombers will fade quicker this year as more 16-ounce cans and 32-ounce crowlers take over. We are already seeing the re-emergence of the six-pack as well. 3. Taproom-only releases will start to be seen on beer shop shelves and more kegs will be spotted as well. Beer has to be made to a certain scale and if the beer sits at a brewery too long, it will eventually make its way elsewhere. 4. There will be at least four big buyouts / purchases as consolidation starts to take hold but SABInBev and their High End portfolio might be silent this year. 5.THE...

Chicago families can explore global cultures at first-ever Global Kids WorldFest on October 21

by Aimee Thompson @ Raising World Citizens Recent Posts

Living in a diverse city like Chicago, it often feels like you can explore different cultures just from driving from neighborhood to neighborhood across the city. But, there are those special moments when cultures converge in one place, creating a diverse world cultural microcosm where you can seemingly span the globe just by walking from table to table, from person to person and from culture to culture. And, that to me is the allure of WorldChicago’s Global Kids WorldFest, which take place for the first time at Sullivan High School (6631 N. Bosworth Ave.) in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood on Saturday, October 21. Taking place from 10 am – 3 pm, the one-day festival is aimed at helping Chicago families explore global cultures through food, games and crafts. Global Kids WorldFest will feature food trucks, carnival games, arts and crafts, and a kids international village. Event entry is free and activity tickets cost 25 cents. Early bird tickets are available online, and offer you the opportunity to purchase 100 activity tickets for $20. Proceeds from Global Kids WorldFest will benefit WorldChicago’s local and global programs to support citizen diplomacy by engaging the Chicago community and the world. WorldChicago is a nonprofit dedicated to promoting citizen diplomacy by empowering youth to be service-minded global citizens. It choose a special home for the first-ever Global Kids WorldFest - Sullivan High School accepted nearly 100 refugees during the 2016-2017 school year, establishing it as school committed to international diversity. With an immigrant population close to 300, that student group now makes up 45 percent of Sullivan High School’s total student population – and its student body represents over 38 countries and speaks more than 35 languages. In order to establish a mutual understanding of the opportunities and challenges of English-language learning, Sullivan High School students met with delegates from WorldChicago’s Iraqi Youth Leadership Exchange Program over the summer. And, now they’re helping to further Chicago family awareness and appreciation of global cultures through Global Kids WorldFest. So, on October 21, instead of driving through Chicago’s neighborhoods and stopping at different places in order to appreciate global cultures, I plan to make one stop at Global Kids WorldFest – and travel around the world right from there.

When it comes to beverages of choice, Asia conjures images of tea for most, from the bitter powdery green tea (matcha) of Japan’s tea ceremony and China’s soothing oolong to India’s sweet-spicy masala chai. Through a twist of historical fate, however, Vietnam bucks this trend and has developed one of the most thriving coffee scenes […]

L.A. Beer & Food Festival, Kool Kief + The Rake

by Sean Inman @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

The Los Angeles beer festival calendar starts with a bang as the second annual L.A. Beer & Food Festival returns to Mack Sennett Studios in Silver Lake on Saturday, January 27, 2018. This was a fun and more intimate festival than others with beer and food booths snaking through rooms and outdoors. This year the L.A. County Brewers Guild event features 50 of L.A.’s independently-owned craft brewers pouring beers that you can then pair with food. It is a wonderful way to quickly and easily see and test how beers taste before, mid-bite, and after. On the beer side of the equation, I am looking forward to two groups of breweries. One category involves breweries that I haven’t had a beer from yet, and the other features breweries in which I need to get re-acquainted. In the former category are Zymurgy Brew Works and Pocock Brewing and in the latter are Mt. Lowe Brewing and Five Threads Brewing. Since there are so many breweries to choose from, you had better come with at least a bit of a game plan. You can drink by style or by geography or just pick the beers that have the best hop-related puns. This...

Kitchenette Pork Posole Verde (Dose of Vitamin P)

by Joshua Lurie @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

Bishop-born brothers Michael Kobayashi and chef Chris Kobayashi opened Artisan in Paso Robles, setting the bar for seasonal comfort food in the then-sleepy Central Coast town. In the past decade-plus, the area’s shown a far deeper culinary commitment level. Competition has grown, but Artisan continues to thrive. The brothers moved Artisan to Paso’s main square in 2013 and extended south in 2015, opening a cafe-bakery called Kitchenette in neighboring Templeton. Kitchenette limits their menu to breakfast and lunch. From 8 a.m. to noon, the Kobayashi brothers serve great versions of American classics like ricotta pancakes and corned beef hash, plus several Mexican dishes. I enjoyed their play on pork posole verde, a hearty Mexican hominy stew. They favor a thicker broth with a moderate amount of spice and tang. They pile on juicy seared pork chunks, quarter-sized cuts of linguica, creamy avocado, crunchy cabbage, savory crumbled feta, punchy jalapeño, and clipped chives. A crispy fried soft-boiled egg is sliced in half and sports gooey a yolk that draws the eye. Not all ingredients are Mexican, but it’s clear the Kobayashi brothers are familiar with the dish, and represent it well. Dose of Vitamin P spotlights my favorite pork dish from...

Transplants Brewing Turns 2, Ceremony + Anna’s Cider

by Sean Inman @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

I finally made a second visit north to Palmdale to join in festivities for the Transplants Brewing second anniversary bash. I was surprised at the variety of beers on offer (32 all told) as well as their growth in the brewing. I sampled eight beers from the list and was impressed by all save one that was probably just too green (The Bible Salesman). I really liked the Mecha Pronghorn that was one of many beers aged in Koval barrels. The Imperial Stout had loads of chocolate taste to it and was very smooth. I also tasted my first pastry stout with a great name of Cut & Pastry. It certainly did have a doughy sort of taste to it and though not my favorite was certainly well executed. IPA-wise, I tasted CatBirD which was brewed with Hop Hash and Hemp CBD; it tasted very nice with a near NE haziness to it. Fringe Element was a bit strong for an “IPA for Everybody” but I liked the taste of it and it paled to the two over 10% Triple IPAs on offer. Going back to the dark side, the Ultra Double Filbert was probably my second favorite after Mecha....

Wide Eyes Open Palms The Schmancy (Drink of the Week)

by Joshua Lurie @ Food GPS

Food GPS - Food. Drinks. People.

Seasonal comfort food and specialty coffee has become much more prominent pairing in L.A. County since SQIRL and G&B Coffee co-habitated in 2012. Chef Kat McIver and partner/barista Angie Evans execute both facets beautifully in Long Beach at Wide Eyes Open Palms, which started at the Sunday Alamitos Bay Farmers Market and now exists near 4th Street’s Retro Row. The concept is clearly derivative of SQIRL, but has developed a distinctive charm. Brunch is the star at this tiny, but airy space that includes twin wood counters, art-lined white walls, and two sidewalk tables. WEOP celebrates multiple coffee roasters, rotating between beans from West Coast companies like Four Barrel from San Francisco, Heart from Portland, and during my visit, Augie’s Coffee from Redlands. Their two-group La Marzocco espresso machine helps fuel classics, plus specialty drinks like peppermint mocha and ginger cinnamon latte. The Schmancy ($5.50) is a cold brew mocktail inspired by the Old Fashioned, a cocktail that typically includes either Bourbon or Rye whiskey, a sugar cube, Angostura bitters, one Luxardo cherry, and often an orange peel garnish. In this case, Evans favors chocolatey, fruity coffees from countries like Ethiopia and Guatemala. [This version featured Guatemalan coffee from Augie’s.]...
