Dia De Los Muertos Vegan Feast This Saturday

It has been a while since we have cooked a meal at La Victoria, our San Francisco home base.

It brings us great pleasure to announce that we will be cooking a very special vegan meal for our annual Dia de Los Muertos feast!

With just two days away, I recommend that you reserve your seats online.  There will only be one seating and space is very limited.

Saturday Nov 2nd
7pm - 9:30
(seating begins at 6:50 and no tables will be seated after 7:45)

La Victoria Mexican Bakery
2937 24th st, San Francisco, CA 94110

$50 night of at the door

The menu is filled with handmade creations that we have been practicing to perfect over the years.  You will recognize a few Soul Cocina classics, as well as some new and exciting items.

Expect to taste a variety of hand made moles, huaraches filled with local pumpkin and a vegan version of chiles en nogada!

View the full menu below

As usual, the meal will have a musical element.  This time our friend from the neighborhood The Genie will perform a rare acoustic set. You may know this wizard of the scratch guitar for his eclectic and mystical electric sets.  On Saturday, The Genie will go raw and unplugged to share the soul of his musical inspirations.  The Genie will be right at home at his local panaderia.

Our next dinner will be a series of meals in New Orleans in Spring 2014.

Georgian Grub

Satellite Republic at The Punchdown in Oakland this weekend

Chachapuri or Xachapuri looks a little similar to Turkish Pide with an egg cracked onto the center top filling partially through the baking process. Хачапури по-аджарски = Kcachapuri with egg? I wish I knew what these guys were saying, cause they seem to be having fun making Хачапури по-аджарски.
SATELLITE REPUBLIC from 12FPS on Vimeo Sergei Parajanov has an interesting life story to go along with his amazing filmography. Sergei Parajanov was born in Tblisi, Georgia

The trio LeMo consists of Hub Rosene of the United States Anna Houter of Germany and Saba Iordanishvili of the Republic of Georgia.
