I LOVE Tataki Canyon in Glen Park. I usually have mixed feelings about sushi places because as much as I love sushi, often the vegetarian selections are really half-assed… not here. I included a pic of the vegetarian menu so you can see how many inventive and delicious options are offered. From top to bottom we had the futomaki, hot potato, reggae, vegan California, and the deep-fried gyoza appetizer. There are also sister Tatakis in Noe Valley and Pac Heights.

This big, beautiful bunch of dahlias is currently just 8 bucks at the Ferry Building Farmers’ Market (Tues. & Thurs. at lunch). It must be dahlia season, I guess?
