Welcome to the Almost uHood Hillside Supper Club!



The Hillside Supper Club (a reincarnation of the Bernal Supper Club pop-up phenomenon) is pretty good. Or at least their brunch was!

Food was fresh and tasty, location is great, and the ambiance was chill. If you’re looking for good food without sharing a sidewalk with tourists or moneyed foodies field-tripping to Valencia, check it out.

And speaking of, can you believe there are tourists in the Mission? Whole groups of them with guides. Solos wandering lost with maps. My heart is breaking. Seriously.

The Palace – back with addl uHood flavor

According to the great folks at eater – Manny Torres (of Mr. Pollo fame) has taken over the old joint and it is looking to really class the place up. But looks like the $7 steak dinner specials of old have gone and will be replaced with a $50 tasting menu and other $30 hunk of meat specials. Right now he doesn’t have a liquor license and it is BYOB. We should go quick!!

Also rumors they will be doing take-out. A nice addition to the uHood!

Portuguese Restaurant Replaces Nervous Dog Coffee


As usual, I’m slower on the draw than Mission Mission, but I heard today that a new Portuguese cafe is going into the old cartoon/Nervous Dog Coffee shop: 

“Cafe St. Jorge is a Portuguese-inspired cafe and bakery located in San Francisco providing organic locally-sourced fare, delicious freshly baked breads and pastries, and exceptional coffee that is real and unpretentious in a place where people can gather, relax, and enjoy some wonderful and friendly service.”

Read more on the Cafe St. Jorge Kickstarter page and Mission Mission.

The founder, Andrea de Francisco, is a friend of a friend so let’s make the effort to check it out!
