Antojitos and Fina Estampa

Dave Feldman Aug 11, 2001 02:55 AM

A friend who is going to San Francisco asked me to ask the sages on the SF board if any of you have been to the Nicaraguan restaurant, Antojitos, on Mission, and what your opinions were.

Also, how is Fina Estampa on Mission (the original branch) holding up these days?

    Omigosh, Dave, you've gone for more than a year without typing the words Fina Estampa on these boards! For a year and 15 days even! I have not been to either restaurant, but a little bird told me that Fina Estampa in on Mission was fine as of three months ago.

      I haven't typed "Fina Estampa" for a long time partly because I haven't been in SF in a long time, much to my consternation, and because I don't have time to read all the posts on the SF board. But whenever I dip in, I really envy this group's knowledge and vivacity. SF Chowhounds have a groove on, without a doubt.

        Lotus of Siam is getting all your attention, methinks, Dave. Come to the Bay and join our summer of love!

          Maybe we should get Dave to plan a Chowhound gettogether at Lotus of Siam - it's a short hop from the Bay Area!

            That's an excellent idea, Celery. Yet Las Vegas is a little to hot for dancing in the street and the flowers in our hair will wilt in no time at all.

              Hey, I'm always up for a trip to Vegas (one of my best friends lives there).

              All those Lotus of Siam posts are inspirational!

                Here's a link to Scott McKenzie's lyrics and a photo shoot for anyone else who misses San Francisco.

                I'm going to be in Las Vegas in November!

                  Which charter company is handling the SF-LV air travel? (g)

                    I'm up for a pair of seats at Lotus of Siam in November. This long-running thread is one of the few things that entices me to LV. Dave?
