"What do you want for your birthday?" is the question I have been hearing a lot lately (and yes, that does mean that I am about to celebrate another year).
Lately, I have been feeling a little nostalgic for my home town of Flint, MI and some of the iconic foods that I grew up eating. Whether it's the amazing Angelo's Coney Dog or the QP Deluxe with Olives, there are some things that not only make food from Flint unique, but also pretty special (and yes, I know I'm going to hear it for describing the foods from Flint that way). To make it even more fun, my parents are going to be in town for this tea as well--and what better way to welcome them to San Francisco than to feed them food from home?
These are not foods flown in from Flint, with one exception (see menu below), but they are my San Francisco influenced versions of them. For example, for the Coney Dogs, instead of Kogel's we are using all beef hot dogs from 4505 Meats.
The menu is still incomplete and I welcome and ideas that you may have to help fill in the blanks. This special Flint Favorites Afternoon Tea is only happening on Sunday, July 21, so reserve your spots today!
