Sugar & Spun – cotton candy with unique flavor: spiced mango, cookie monster, strawberry nutella and more.. You get the idea!
Sugar SpunDare you to try insects!  Actually, they are yummy, great snacks I say :O  (Eji’s Ethiopian) Oh and they don’t just catch any bugs, these insects were raised for human consumption!
IMG_2165I imagined Indian food to be heavy on the sauce, spices and creamy in texture.  Papdi Chaat taste nothing like that, it’s a good balance of crunchiness and flavor. (Rasoi)

These little dumplings are so good that they receive a local grant – Bini’s Kitchen. By the way, the dumplings are called momo, Himalyan cuisine, cute name!

Not to be confused with Banh Mi, these are Bicycle Bánh Mi.  The difference: they provide bicycle delivery and catering to SF and Bay area. Mother and daughter team, cooking up family recipes and making simple, authentic Vietnamese food.
