As I balance school with writing with web-building commitments, my web presence – what little I had, anyway – suffers. I haven’t written a post for The Eaten Path since early August and I haven’t been able to update zmmann.com with the kind of regularity I’d planned.
When I do next update this site, it will be the now outdated web design page. Most recently my involvement in the perplexing world of css and php has yielded a redesign of The Eaten Path site, and I’m so far pleased with the results. The design went live less than a week ago and there are still matters (performance, search, share functionality) under construction, but the look/browsing-strategy has received a drastic and (I think) beneficial makeover.
I completed a series on Burmese food in San Francisco, at The Eaten Path. Here are the stories, in order from oldest to newest:
We Are Burmese If You Please – Burmese Kitchen Larkin Express
A Dinner Too Far – Mandalay Restaurant
The Search For Little Burma – Little Yangon
From Here to Myanmar – Burma Cafe
Burma Two Ways – Burma Superstar & Yamo
It’s been awhile since my last full post on The Eaten Path. Finally got around to a story on Russian restaurants, a topic that has been bugging me for awhile:
Once Upon a Time in The Richmond District
As someone who has always been more than a little interested in Russian culture, I’ve also been more than a little frustrated with Russian restaurants. They are inaccessible starting points into Russian cuisine, to say the least. Cinderella Bakery and Cafe in San Francisco is an exception.
For the time being, I’ve finished writing on Japan for The Eaten Path. Next I will continue to muse edibly on San Francisco-based foodstuffs, but for now, consider my “travel writing” on Japan complete:
“It Belongs in a Museum!”
This story is a survey on our experience with ramen across the continent, in its many forms, on mountains, in train stations and as exhibits in a museum.
Whether the Cherry Blossoms Are in Bloom
This story is about the entanglement of tourism and dining out, specifically in the Kyoto area, from the point of view of an apologetic tourist.
I’ve been chronicling a recent trip to Japan in epicurean terms on The Eaten Path. The first two posts are up, with more to come on hopefully a weekly basis:
Driving on the Left Side of the Pacific Ocean
This story is about our week in Kochi City, on the island of Shikoku, exploring local culture and balancing history with modern city life.
Shikoku Mountain Blues
This story is about one day, a road trip through the mountainous country in Shikoku, north of Kochi City, specifically in regard to one unique cafe.
