"O" seems to be a very popular name. "O" the Oprah magazine. "O" the cirque soleil show. "O" the Othello movie.

The best of ketchup and mustard.
I used to eat a lot of hot dogs. I became quite familiar with condiments. My favorite ketchup is Heinz. Heinz ketchup is thick and sweet. Hunt's and other brands of ketchup are usually more liquidy and a bit on the tart side. I like the simple look of its bottle. My favorite mustard is Gulden's brown mustard. It's not as sour as yellow mustard. It's brown and comes out a little thicker than yellow. I can almost eat it by itself but that'll be nasty.
This is the last entry for the best of series. Sure there are still many other categories I could mention but I simply haven't found the best of those items. From time to time I might add more things to this list only if they deserve the title. I hope you try these recommendations. I think you’ll really enjoy them.

The best of Greek food.
Whenever I'm in San Francisco I always like to stop at this one particular Greek restaurant. It's located at the corner of Haight and Cole. Not everyone enjoys Greek food because of the taste of lamb, but I enjoy those odd flavors. They have a great shawarma, which is like a Greek lamb burrito. The best thing I tried there was their baba ganoush. You can buy it as a dip with flat bread or you can have it wrapped up. I enjoy it wrapped up. Make an effort to stop on by whenever you're in San Francisco.

The best of corn chips.
There isn't much variety when it comes to corn chips. They may come in a few different shapes but when it comes to flavoring, there is only salt. The best corn chips must go beyond that. The best corn chips are from Taco Works. They are a local company here in San Luis Obispo. What makes them a step above the rest is that they are flavored with seasoned salt and not just plain salt. It makes quite a difference. My favorite flavor is salsa. It doesn't taste like real salsa but it adds a different dimension to those chips. Since they are made locally, it's hard to find them elsewhere. Next time you see them, be sure to pick a bag up for yourself. They're inexpensive and worth a try.

The best of burgers.
Everyone knows there's only one place to get the best burgers and that place is In n Out. The burger is an all-American that is simple and delicious. In n Out makes the best burgers. It is still a family owned company that focuses on quality. The price couldn't be better either. There's even a secret underground language when you order. The menu is simple without many choices. It's unfortunate that they're only here on the west coast but it's one of the perks of living here. The old-fashioned burger, one of America's delicious pastimes.
