      B. Poleng Lounge receives kudos

      April 1, 2007 San Francisco Chronicle Magazine named Poleng Lounge as
      one of the "Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants" (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-
      bin/listings/restaurants/listtop2007?Submit=1&o=65): "Several Asian-
      inspired restaurants have recently opened in the Bay Area, but few
      places do it as well as this nightclub-restaurant that feels like it
      could be on the coast of Bali. Fortunately the dance club is located
      down a long hall, so the restaurant doesn't suffer. Tea is also a
      specialty and works its way into many cocktails and in savory dishes
      such as the richly flavored curries. Chef Tim Luym (a Rising Star
      chef), who is Chinese and Spanish, grew up in Manila and has a real
      feel for various cuisines that comprise the interesting menu." The
      SF Chronicle previously named Poleng Lounge as one of the "Top 10
      Restaurants of 2006" (http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?
      f=/c/a/2006/12/27/FDGV2N3U0G1.DTL) and honored Poleng Lounge Chef Tim
      Luym as Rising Star Chef 2007 (http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?
      f=/c/a/2007/03/07/FDG54OFN9V1.DTL).

      The December 2006 issue of Common Ground Magazine
      (http://commongroundmag.com/2006/12/food0612.html) raved over Poleng
      Lounge's many vegetarian options, such as The Buddha's Treasures
      ("small vegetable-filled dumplings in matcha tea-dusted
      wrappers . . . delicate and exquisitely seasoned") and Poleng Curry
      ("full of vegetables and rich with coconut milk and tea-infused
      curry"). As noted in the Winter Issue 2007 of Vegetarian News, Poleng
      Lounge offers Tofu Triangles with rice wine sambal sauce at 25 cents
      each during its Happy Hour (4PM-6PM). Poleng Lounge also offers SFVS
      members a 10% discount during 6PM-8PM.

      C. Underdog is winner

      Open for 3 months now, Underdog has been winning praises for serving
      affordable, organic vegan sausages in a cozy eco-friendly restaurant
      run by friendly owners Max Leung & Rizza Punzalan. In addition to
      topping Yelp's Best of restaurants
      (http://www.yelp.com/biz/ZEjD3H78NtbrHzSdD2BopA), Underdog was
      recommended as one of "8 delightful delicacies" by The San Francisco
      Bay Guardian's Feast Spring 2007 (http://www.sfbg.com/entry.php?
      entry_id=3271&catid=4&volume_id=254&issue_id=287&volume_num=40&issue_n
      um=25): "Sometimes quality is all it takes to make something truly
      special. For example, when was the last time you had a hot dog that
      didn't ride waves in your stomach? Or a good veggie dog (or even any
      veggie dog) at an actual restaurant? You can find the best of both at
      Underdog, a hole-in-the-wall hot dog shop in the Sunset District. All
      quality, all tasty. And all links, fixings, chips, sodas, cookies,
      and candy are certified organic." Underdog also serves Mission Pies
      and organic salads with dressings.
