Lower Haight Gets Estrella Taqueria and The Vegans Get Saucy

LOWER HAIGHT - Haighteration has this colorful report on the sudden, mind-boggling opening of Estrella Taqueria in the former La Carreta Taqueria space on Haight near Fillmore. Apparently it's a modest taqueria, as they opened with negatory fanfare. [Haighteration]

TENDERLOIN - Lady T-Hop has filled us in on the latest with Asia de Cuba's transition to The Velvet Room. The space has not changed an iota, but the menu is now farm-to-table, and it's being cooked by Ewart Wardhaugh, who comes to us all the way from Barbados. [Tablehopper]

TENDERLOIN EXTRA - Every carnivore's favorite vegan restaurant, Millenium, will be serving up its Annual Southern Comfort Dinner next Wednesday. It's a 5-course prix fixe for $39.99 sure to induce "some artery clogging (Cardiologists get 10% off), tooth aching, belch inducing cuisine." Yes that's what the vegans said! Reservations: 415-345-3900. [EaterWire]
