The goods at Manila Oriental Market.

Don’t get me wrong. Where I live in Bernal Heights, I have sun and tacos and mid-century modern furniture stores within walking distance, and I appreciate it, but every time I’m out in the Richmond or Sunset District, trying to decide between New May Wah market or Sunset Super (not to mention a pho joint or some Korean bbq place)—my ideas of heaven—I say the same thing: “If there were more trees out here and it wasn’t so [expletive] foggy, I’d move out here in a second.”

Taste of Asia

The Asian Art Museum kicked off a three-day tour of Asia with its Grand Tasting Gala, presided over by chef Martin Yan. The food- and fun-filled gala brought out more than 300 folks and raised $100,000 for the museum.
