Ahhhh, how delicious was the sound of rain on Sunday night? And we’re going to be getting it again this evening, and all week, according to my weather app. Ready for it! Do you have your soup plan all lined up? I was thrilled to see my favorite bright and punchy pozole verde from El Pípila (it has bacon in it, hold me) is now available on Club Feast. The portion is huge, with chips—and you can get it delivered for less than $10! Use my code HOPPER20 if it’s your first Feast and we both get $20, mwah. Provecho!
Some other soups I adore: braised beef noodle soup from House of Xian Dumpling, the Friday-only special of goat birria en caldo (soup) at SanJalisco, tan tan men from Kirimachi Ramen (I love their laksa too!), Taiwanese beef noodle soup from Yilan Foods, matzo ball soup from Wise Sons or One Market, char siu wonton soup from Sam Wo, rasam idli from Deccan Spice/House, and allllll the noods at Mong Thu. (There are many more on my list, but there’s a start.) I’m wishing you a very slurpy week.
Last week, I was thrilled to launch the new Popmenu and tablehopper “pophop” campaign, giving away six months of Popmenu Pro + Boost to a lucky San Francisco Bay Area restaurant! This Boost is worth $4K, friends! Please nominate a restaurant (or your own restaurant!) for a major website and marketing makeover at popmenu.com/pophop! It takes less than a minute! You can learn more in my video here. Thank you for taking a moment to show support and love to our local restaurants!
Another industry-supporting event I am thrilled to be part of is this upcoming livestream discussion with Upstream to demonstrate why Reusables Win in San Francisco! Restaurant industry folks, please join us for this important presentation! Read more in the sponsored section below, I know we all HATE the sea of plastic takeout containers we’re all drowning under!
Wishing you all a wonderful evening!
