Burgers and stuff.
n2-Anpan OMP!!
Busy week...

Managed to complete the covers for 2 books and now I'm about 5 strips away from completing the basic content for Volume 3. You can see a preview for one of them at KS' flickr.

Some nice things happened - like eating at the Counter for lunch a few days after it opened at Kahala Mall. The wait can be long and service somewhat slow as they're just learning the ropes here - but the burgers are yummy.

(But they still don't match THIS PLACE in our books. Darn you SFers. We will attempt to make a trek out there post-Fanime... You can bet your bottom dollar on that one.)

Also contemplating MAGNETS for a special accessory run. There's a lot of pros and cons for these guys. There seems to be a vocal majority for them, but I'm apprehensive as I'm only planning a small, limited run. Wonder if I can contact those car ribbon magnet folks...

I seriously hate this neighborhood sometimes. First, it was the crying dog. Then it was the screaming neanderthal kids, then it's the new neighbors with the late night parties who insist on having loud, animated conversations on their front porch at 1am, then just last night it was a bunch of girls sitting in a car talking VERY LOUDLY right outside our bedroom window.

KS had to get up, knock on her car window, and tell her to keep it down as we could hear their entire conversation as clear as day - with her windows ROLLED UP. Our house is small, we have absolutely no insulation, and our bedroom is literally next to the street. (It may as well be ON the street...) Sure, most of the neighbors are elderly and deaf, but it's still no excuse. =_=''

Then I wake up to hear howling dogs down the street, revving garbage trucks, and army helicopters circling. >_>;

What did you order at the counter? They built one here but I haven't gone

I usually get the build-your-own burger. For $9 it's not too bad. It starts at 1/3 lb (after cooking weight - so the burger's still pretty big) and you can choose your cheese, toppings, bun, sauce, etc.

I had the 1/3 lb burger with regular burger bun, sprouts, grilled onions, hard-boiled eggs, and (one more topping that I forgot...) with an au jus sauce on the side. We also ordered the 1/2 fries and 1/2 onion strings (which go great on the burgers too) and they came with a ranch sauce and bbq sauce - which also go great on the burgers. ^^

Pretty good, a little pricy, but you walk out pretty full.

Hrm, sounds about right, a little pricey but you'll be full. Seems to always be crowded there.
I found out that Islands raised their prices on their burgers too but it's actually cos they included a portion of fries with it now.

i love the counter *_*

I like their burgers~ They have really nifty selections like sprouts and hard-boiled eggs. :D What do you order?

Never been to Taylor's, never had the urge. Too many mixed reviews, but there's no harm in trying it once. Are you aiming for the one at the Ferry Building or in Napa?

Zuni Cafe in SF is supposed to have a good burger, and roasted chicken on bread salad for 2 (but there's a 45 minute wait so most everyone recommend placing the order as soon as you're seated).

Really? I just eat their burgers, fries, shakes, and spicy tomato soup. So far, we haven't been disappointed~ ^^ (We went to the Ferry Building one)

Zuni Cafe sounds familiar... Is this it?

That's the one! Heh, mixed reviews for everyone. I wish the reviewer was more specific in how the food was not so good.

sorry to hear about your neighbors, that really kills D:

ooou I like your tablet! *tablet envy*
