Emil Amok’s procrastination tool: A mini-podcast!

And this is one about a vegan Filipino restaurant in the Bay Area.

Emil Amok—Emil in a minute or so. He says what’s on your mind and his!

 

You can shove the big yellow thing off the pancake and use a light dousing of the maple syrup to limit calories.  These are the ube pancakes at Nick’s on Grand, a legit Filipino VEGAN place.  Weekends only for the pancakes (served with vegan bacon). Check out the vegan lechon and vegan sissig! Fat still an issue. But no animal fat. You’ll get all the Filipino flavor without the cruelty. Worth checking out if you’re near South San Francisco.
