Planet-Friendly Fast Food

Planet-Friendly Fast Food

Sante Grill aims to “revolutionize” fast food with its lighter, nonfried, less calorically dense menu. The restaurant isn’t out to save the world through its food, but it’s just trying to make fast food doesn’t taste like fast food. And on that score that restaurant does pretty well.

Review: Auctioning the Ainsleys

Review: Auctioning the Ainsleys

With its comic-book set and toy-piano background music, Auctioning the Ainsleys, the new production at TheatreWorks, creates a mood of absurdist unreality before the first words come out of the first character’s mouth. The fast-paced comic drama by Laura Schellhardt (directed by Meredith McDonough) opens with second-generation auctioneer Avery Ainsley (Heidi Kettenring) selling the last possessions of her domineering mentor father—a Stetson hat, a man’s coat and a pair of size-10 shoes.

La Birrieria: A Tasty Surprise

La Birrieria: A Tasty Surprise

One of the best places to experience birria is east San Jose’s aptly named La Birrieria, even harder to pronounce than the restaurant’s namesake dish. La Birrieria is 100 percent Mexican. The tidy, family-run restaurant is located next to a liquor store off South White Road and can be easy to miss. Inside, the wood-paneled walls, handwritten signs and family photos give the place a welcoming, friendly appeal. But most appealing of all is the birria.

Milpitas’ Tandoori N Curry

PakistaniI food is not as common as Indian food in the Bay Area, but here’s a tip on how to spot the few restaurants out there: Look for the letter “N.” For some reason, Pakistani restaurateurs have settled on a naming convention that leans heavily on the 14th letter in the alphabet. There’s the excellent Kabob N Curry’s in Santa Clara. Milpitas has Naan N Masala. Up in Berkeley, one can find the cheap and delicious Naan N Curry. My new favorite is another Milpitas “N” restaurant: Tandoori N Curry.

A Rare Korean Treat in Santa Clara

A Rare Korean Treat in Santa Clara

The spicy soup of Spam, hot dogs, American cheese, cheap ramen noodles and kimchi is known as Johnson Tang and, more literally, ‘army base stew.’ In spite of Santa Clara’s vibrant Korean restaurant scene, the dish is not widely available here, but I found a hulking bowl of the stuff ($12.99) at Jang Su Jang.

Great American Seascapes at Cantor

William Trost Richards’ best paintings, on display at Stanford’s Cantor Arts Center, depict depopulated seascapes with horizon lines that seem to stretch to a humbling infinity beyond the edges of the picture plane.
