Rabbit in mustard grain sauce – Cafe Bastille

Rabbit in mustard grain sauce - Cafe Bastille
Lapin a la moutarde. Served with braised greens and rice. Three course dinner prix fixe $35
Cafe Bastille, San Francisco CA

They say that rabbit tastes like chicken, and with this dish I think it looks exactly like chicken too. I love the slightly gamey flavor of rabbit and most of the time it’s very tender. This rabbit dish was tasty and super hearty.

Grilled Shannon Ranch lamb shish kebab – Tarla Mediterranean Grill

Grilled Shannon Ranch lamb shish kebab - Tarla Mediterranean Grill
Marinated with Mediterranean herbs and spices, kale, Rancho Gordo cassoulet beans, basil-mint chimichurri sauce. $22
Tarla Mediterranean Grill, Napa Ca

Mmm, this lamb was really good! It was tender and juicy and so flavorful. I think a bit of tzatziki on the plate would have knocked it out of the park. I thought the kale and beans were tasty too.

Chicken wings – Frida’s Mexican Grill

Chicken wings - Frida's Mexican Grill
With chipotle chile and ranch dressing dip. Happy hour $5
Frida’s Mexican Grill, Napa CA

I was a little disappointed with these wings, partly because they looked so sad and lonely arranged on the plate. I guess 5 tiny wings look weird when they’re placed singly on a plate. And these wings were definitely frozen and of poor quality.

House margarita - Frida's Mexican Grill
House margarita. Happy hour $3
Not the best tasting, but I really can’t complain for three bucks.

Wine tasting - Etude
Most San Franciscans complain that they need to make it up to wine country more often because it’s such a short drive from the city. And it’s completely true! Wine country is SO beautiful and relaxing that there’s no reason why we shouldn’t visit on a regular basis. Just make sure to have a responsible driver along! :)

Mr. Brisket sandwich – Roadside BBQ

Mr. Brisket sandwich - Roadside BBQ
Soaked for up to seventeen hours and topped with coleslaw and bbq sauce. Served with brisket baked beans. $8.95
Roadside BBQ, San Rafael CA

Mmm, this sandwich was delicious! The brisket was tender, flavorful, and had a nice smokey flavor. It was also great with the slaw on top. I think the bun was a little on the thick side – I like less bun for bbq. The baked beans were very tasty.

Super falafel – Sunrise Deli

Super falafel - Sunrise Deli
Falafel with hummus, eggplant, potatoes, lettuce, tomatoes, pickled cabbage. Served in lavash wrap. $8
Sunrise Deli, San Francisco CA

This falafel wrap was definitely not very “super” in my book. The falafel themselves were ok, but the whole wrap was super dry and boring. There was way more wrap than filling, and even the filling seemed somehow dry even with the hummus. They needed some tzatziki or have the eggplant mixture more juicy. I was not a fan.
