When referring to fries. Annnnnd, that’s the moment I learned I might be the world’s worst first dater ever, since I blurt out 95% of what’s on my mind without passing it ... read more

Smokin’ Warehouse started in a commercial warehouse in Bayview that slow-smokes and slow-cooks barbecue meats in their “secret oven.” They now also operate a food truck and are most known for their ... read more

On Date #1 with Reincarnated Fish, we visited SoMa Streat Food Park to find the perfect food truck for our date. It was my first time hitting up the fairly new food truck pod in San Francisco, which boasts flat screens for watching games, alcohol, and a rotating variety of food trucks on a weekly basis. It’s a pretty sweet spot! Totally odd location, since it’s in a bit of ... read more
