Last week's review of Angel Food and Fun has been a personal project for over a year. I love that the place is a one-man band, that the food is distinctly regional (and done by a chef from that region), and that it's in the middle of nowhere in unincorporated Cully (sorry Cully residents, but NE 60th is no SE Division). I think it needs some attention drawn to it because though it seems to do alright, it deserves to be a lot busier. Under the new ownership the food is worlds beyond what used to be available here, and Bluehour veteran sous chef Manuel Lopez is a friendly fellow, happy to talk about his dishes. Go pay him a visit, even if you just go for a burrito: he griddles the cheese into a gooey pancake with crusty lace edges before layering it onto the tortilla and adding the fillings, which makes for a "why doesn't everybody do this" flavor dimension.
