Laughing in the face of both contemporary social networking and traditional food-scrutinizing mores, the San Francisco-based Israeli street-food vendor who calls himself Kike on a Bike has neither twitter nor hecksher.

But you should check out his harissa. Or at least so suggests the food blog at SFWeekly.com.

When approached by their intrepid tweeting blogger Tamara Palmer, KoaB revealed a mouthwatering array of North African foods including:

flatbread, ground beef, roasted eggplant puree, tomato coulis, chickpeas, fennel seeds, onions, and a lob of intense, homemade harissa that was much darker in color than the prefab kind from a tube.

While this re-blogger would suggest moving towards a spicy, apricotted tagine, KoaB revealed a secret desire to branch out into soups. Especially a hearty leg soup. As English pop group The Monks might have said, “Nice leg, shame about the faith.”
