This doesn’t quite qualify for my Weird Restaurant Category (great food, good lighting, $12 – $14 entrees), but there’s still something oh, so San Francisco about it!
Plus seriously, after you’ve had an order of chow meain (or a burger), don’t you often crave a delicious donut?
On February 5, 2008, after 15 amazing years in New York City, I got married, changed careers, and moved out to San Francisco. All within a three-week period, and with very little preparation. This blog is for those of you who follow me out to San Francisco (or have been here for a while and are still trying to figure this place out).
You're not in Kansas anymore Dorothy.
Lest you forget the Indian named Chinese/American restaurant in the Mission…
However, it’s not as much a trend as the Donuts and Chinese Food.
And those places are all over. It’s not like there’s just one chinese/burger/donut shop. There’s even one in my neighborhood in Oakland.
Ahem, I believe it was 1st ave in the East Village that I encountered my first “Donut Taco Indian Curry Thai Ice Cream Burger” stand.
There’s Burgers & Cupcakes here is NYC. http://www.burgersandcupcakes.us/ Which I thought was weird when I first saw it, but since then I’ve been told it is a popular spot. So I guess Donuts & Chinese Food is a little weird, but it doesn’t fall into the uniquely SF weird category. NYC hold its own on this count.
it’s not just weird, but weirdly smart and inventive… those frying machines are multitaskers. donuts in the AM, kung pao at night. good call!
Now that’s efficiency. Especially for their line of General Tsao’s crullers.
