The Weeklies Over Coffee

Welcome back to the Weeklies Over Coffee, your look at the alt-weekly food sections that invade this city each Wednesday.

From the San Francisco Bay Guardian:

Paul Reidinger visits Serpentine and finds it a more aurally palatable cousin to Slow Club. [Factory Fresh]

Reidinger also tosses out some ideas on where to stick all those greens that litter the produce aisles this time of year. [Green Winter]

Ailene Sankur takes on Venus for brunch in Berkeley and finds it to be underwhelming. We’ll offer no comment on Venus except to say that they once served us decaf in place of regular coffee and we’ve never really gotten over it. [Breakfast of Blandness]

And, finally, L.E. Leone gets going on the weather and geography and how to cook a chicken, and also sort of mentions Metro Kathmandu, where you can get lamb burgers. [Cheap Eats]

Over at the SF Weekly:

Meredith Brody lurks around to various Vietnamese soup emporiums, seeking relief for her cold and reviewing pho. This is a good time of year for such a tour. [The Pho Chronicles]
