So here we are in San Francisco, on the first real test of our semi-vegetarian trial run (two days in). We are eating meat only twice a week, and the rest of the week going ovo-lacto vegetarian. So far it’s working pretty well. Today we had lunch at Woey Loy Goey’s basement restaurant on Jackson St. (memories of having lunch here with my dad when I was a kid), and we ordered vegetarian spring rolls, a braised tofu dish and a mixed vegetable dish. Good Cantonese food: mild flavors, fresh vegies, and NO SAUCE THICKENERS.
Right now, we’re at the Gallery Cafe on Mason St., next to the Powell-Mason trolley line. The Gallery has bitter Americano, decent tea, and an extremely so-so romantic soul music soundtrack. Nevertheless, having a great time. Ah. Finally, a song I like: Elvis Costello, singing “Allison.”
