For those of you who never heard of JK Food Crush. Food Crush is a Pop-Up that occupies a space with a guest chef. This time it was at the a.Muse Gallery in the Mission
A bit late to post this but I’m doing it now. A family shoot from of Esther from lesilicium.com
Sometimes I’m always caught without a camera. Sometimes more often my large DSLR sits in my room. This is the reason why I always wanted to have a smartphone handy for sharing pictures. I know it’s late, but my iPhone 5 is my first smartphone ever. And I’m discovering so such awesome apps photo related like SnapSeed, Camera+, and ,of course, Instagram. My phone has become my most portable camera I ever have.
Even before my iPhone I always been pressured into using Instagram with use of my iPod Touch and iPad. The sweet spot of portable and quality comes to the phone. So I been trying to post more often. I do pull some inspirations from other instagrammers such as @alice_gao, @avalaurenb, @pketron, @rick_poon
Here’s some a sample of my Instagrams. Follow me @jamesmngo
From finding out about a local bakery that serves up some awesome empanadas to simply enjoying a tasty banh mi. Life has been great!
I haven’t been posting as often but there’s so much to share. You probably know from my twitter posts I’m always out and about and always have something to say. I am currently taking a small break from that to post here reorganize some other things. Not too long ago, Eat Real 2012 in Jack London Square has been quite a foodie adventure. I watched a butchering competition and tried out new things like Shrub Soda (from INNA Jam, more about it on a future Food Socialist post) and Charcuterie.
It’s another Foodspotting Eatup! This time it was at Chaya in San Francisco.
As everybody know, I’m a huge coffee nut. Though, I dont particular know much about coffee. I just love my morning joe. It must be a dark rich grind pour over. And when I heard that Blue Bottle Coffee offers free public cupping in their Oakland Headquarters, I just had to go. A cupping is like a tasting and evaluation method used as to how wine tastings work, you will find a lot of parallels between the two. I learned so much during the cupping and enjoy my morning coffee so much more.
I also wanted to try their delicious fennel and sea salt short bread because I saw it featured in Bon Appetit Magazine.

Hey guys, sorry for the non-updates it’s been a while since I have posted anything to the blog. I have a couple of projects I am working on including the long awaited Food Socialist Blog. After much brewing, I’m am confident the website will be ready.
