Is Timothy Swischuk Making America’s Most Interesting Sandwiches?

Each menu item is like a Renaissance whirly-gig of different elements, many of which involve multiple steps to prepare. Mr. Swischuk, who after becoming stifled by the stale fart air of academia entered the California Culinary Academy (graduating in 2008), credits his long years in the field of architecture to his approach to building a sandwich.

Bacon Bacon: The Food Truck Dedicated to the Noble Pig…

Before finally giving in and reluctantly surrendering my greenbacks to a truck called Bacon Bacon – that was recently parked outside the F*ck Your New Year’s Resolution Party – it was obvious that people have always had a strong affection for bacon.

Java Beach Serves the Sunset

When I lived out in the Sunset District back in the day, Java Beach was my favorite hang out. The neighborhood coffee shop serves strong coffee and makes bomb sandwiches. I love the veggie one with avocado and sprouts. They also have the amazing Blondie desert bars. The prices are

Cheap Special at Valencia Pizza and Pasta

As far as cheap eating goes Valencia Street isn’t quite the bastion of affordable grub it once was. When neighbourhoods go upscale, they tend to take their eatery prices with them. However, if you want to stretch a few dollars, there is still a handful of old reliables, one of
