[S]he'll eat there as many times as she likes. Indeed, it is a short walk from the SF Weekly office, ideal for a lunch break, and there is a bart station in the bowels of the mall, so she can hop from the East bay, eat dinner there, be back on time for a favorite TV shows, and NEVER see the city. Her convenience trumps our food education, never forget that. An unpaid blogger will travel more to review places than she does.
So let's brace ourselves for reviews of Straits, or the new Slanted Door offspring or whatever place is opening in there. Meredith found a bone, and she'll gnaw it till the end.
So we were shocked when last week, she did not return to the Mall, but instead wrote a decent review of a place on Bernal western slope (she had never been near Bernal Heights in the past, a neighborhood she'd ignored worst than the Sunset, if that is even possible).
We even took the bet she would get back to the Mall before the end of the year:
Which means that: next week, she'll review "Out the door" at the westfield mall. Actually, we are taking the over/under on this. I say she reviews the place before the end of the year.
So guess where she ends up this week? You betcha! The Westfield Mall!
We lose our bet, since she visits not Out the Door, but Zazil, a place she'd rip if it did not serve her some langoustine on her second visit. Nothing like a little lobster to make Meredith feel better, ain't it?

Ced, You have often chastized Meredith for her bad French; her Spanish is just as bad! For example:
- Twice she uses "mesa", instead of of "masa. " Masa harina is the corn flour used for both corn tortillas and tamales (or tamals as the trendos prefer to call them.)
- "Axiote" is usually spelled "achiote." Maybe she got this from the menu - but, well, you know her better than I do. I suspect that she has no idea what achiote should taste like. (It's pretty mild.)
- She totally biffs "cangrejo" or crab, spelling it "canegro". I'm not gonna even say what that sounds like.

P.S. to Ced: What is difference between langoustine and lobster?)
Ant Fan: I think a langoustine is a smaller variety of lobster, or a larger shrimp.

Hi, I'm one of those bridge and tunnel monkies who is glued to the front seat of my RAV-4 and who drools uncontrollably at the smell of Starbucks, Quiznos and Bed/Bath/& Beyond. I never go to San Francisco because I am afraid of all the real hardcore people who live there, like the Mission hipsters with their fixed gear bikes, the Marina riot grrlz with their razor sharp french manicures, and of course, THE PREDATORY GAYS. There is a decent world outside the 7 x 7 sq. mile area known as San Fran-I-Love-The-Smell-Of-My-Farts-Cisco. Come over to my side and grab a taco or bahn mi with me on International Ave., if you dare :-)
