Burke and Wells de-lurk as SF Bay Area Chowhounds!

We have lurked too long--it's time we started giving back.

Thank you, Bay Area Chowhounds, for so much wisdom. We've been lurking here for months, reading the posts, visiting recommendations, planning every food trip to San Francisco around Chowhound reviews. We've gotten an idea of who likes what and why, and what's important to Chowhounds.

We started on the International Board because of our June trip to Paris. Amazing as that was (it generated so many reviews!), we're back in the Bay Area now and we want to contribute.

We've hesitated at first, because we live in the SOUTH Bay. Almost all our explorations (five years of tasting and trying) has been confined to the South Bay and the Peninsula. Only in the last few months have we started exploring San Francisco--clearly there's a lot to taste!

Finally I just had to ask if anyone knew of a cheese cart worth the name, and you all just jumped in, so helpful and friendly! We're deeply grateful, and we're going to start putting our experiences up on the SF board and on our site (link below).

So thanks again, and it's great to be part of the Chowhounds SF Bay Area community!

        Welcome, Peter and Gary! I live in the south bay, too, and would love to hear your opinions on places in our neck of the woods. :)

            You have a really neat site, and I enjoy your tales and comments, both for the substance as well as the style!
            Looking forward to hearing more from you!

              I think you two used to be fans of Sushi Sawa, do you happen to have a link to an old review that you wrote of it ?

              Thanks.

                Burke and Wells haven't posted on this board in many, many years. Here's their first post about Sawa: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/1727... -- part of a long thread.
