Marla Bakery

By   /  October 29, 2014  /  Food, Restaurants  /  No Comments

How can a $6 plate of toast in a bakery/cafe in the depths of the Outer Richmond arouse such universal love? I guess because it is perfect.

Warm Bagel with Herbed Farmers Cheese and Pickle at Marla Bakery Amy Brown, baker and co/owner of Marla Bakery, brought matzoh to Passover dinner this year.  Matzoh are usually square, bland, unleavened crackers that taste like processed white flour, but Brown’s matzoh were round, paper-thin, crackly, olive oil-infused flatbreads that were so divine, they made [...]

Little Vietnamese Cafe, 309 6th Avenue, SF 415 876-0283 After a food shopping trip on Lower Clement, I like to get a hot–or cold–Vietnamese coffee at Little Vietnamese Cafe whose infusion is less concentrated than traditional Vietnamese coffee.  Though still full bodied, it requires less sweetened condensed milk for balance–kind of a Vietnamese coffee light [...]

Le Soleil, 133 Clement, 668-4848 Le Soleil, the beloved inner Richmond Vietnamese restaurant, finally re-opened after a six month closure during which they remodeled.  That’s code for having to build a wheelchair accessible bathroom after being targeted by a well known (at least among restauranteurs) lawyer-client duo who have dedicated their working lives to uncovering [...]
