Morning Buzz: A Foodie Day Planner
Let's do lunch:
Explore northern China by way of the Outer Sunset: SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody says seek out the lamb with chives and onion pancake at Old Mandarin Islamic (3132 Vicente at 42nd Ave., 564-3481).
Insulate yourself from the fog's chill (with enough green left over to score a burrito on the way home): One-buck beers tonight at The Abbey Tavern (4100 Geary at Fifth Ave., 221-7767), all night.
Drink in a whiff of New Orleans at backwoods prices: $1 oysters, $4 drafts, and wine specials at the Elite Café (2049 Fillmore at California, 346-8400), 4-6 p.m.
