Since, Farmboy and I need an excuse to go eat at Cafe Salina and Lisa needs to eat lunch, we will have another Pen Posse this Sunday. The venue will be Cafe Salina which is new for Pen Posse. It is a Hong Kong Style cafe and about three blocks from Peter's. This one might be more food centric.




Sunday Jan. 13th
1:00 pm.


Cafe Salina
235 Broadway
Millbrae, CA 94030

Don't worry about noodles. 40% of the menu has some form of noodles. The food ranges from traditional southern Chinese to what would be termed Asian fusion even though the food was developed decades before fusion was applied to food,

If you want the HK experience, I recommend the baked spaghetti with pork chop in a tomato sauce. If you are braver, go for the beef tongue in cream sauce over baked spaghetti or fried rice.

Not this week. It was a small turnout as I predicted. This one was more food centric but it turned into a blue ink fest. We'll definitely have more Pen Posses at Cafe Salina. The only issue is the lack of parking or at least a more challenging parking situation.


I introduced people to several new food concepts like basic HK milk tea and HK tea and coffee combo as well as sesame paste soup dessert.

Sorry I missed it. Also, I did not make it to the gym.

ARGH!

Probably won't bike to work tomorrow, either.

Stupid flu. Gah.

Looking forward to trying out Salina one of these days.

Hey, how about Cha Cha Cha again? That was fun.

Get some more rest and get well. No more staying up late. :headsmack:



We'll do Salina again for sure. We can do Cha Cha Cha too.



So do we go for five in a row this weekend? Also I'm thinking the 26th for the secret Posse.

Salina was very good, but I do prefer the easy parking and lower tab at Peter's.

Although I usually prefer Sundays, next weekend Sunday the 20th would be no-posse for me -- it's the huge delicious Fancy Food Show at Moscone... So I'd actually prefer Saturday even if I can't get there until nearer 3pm.

I may try to go down to The Farm by 7pm. Anybody want INO late, after that? Or Market and Noe before that? The only new thing I have to show is a Pelikan with a crooked top.

You know the policy. Anyone can call a Pen Posse.
