Little gems, pickled onions. $14
Trou Normand, San Francisco CA
Mmm, Trou Normand certainly knows their meats! This mortadella was absolutely divine. It had a wonderfully soft texture and the little pieces of goodness embedded within it were so good. The rest of the ingredients are on the simple side, but when they’re of such good quality they don’t need to be fancy. What a great sandwich!
With steamed broccoli and chap chae (Korean style glass noodles), kimchi. $9.25
Sorabol, San Francisco CA
I know this to-go plate looks like a pile of crap, but I secretly love the spicy pork from Sorabol. Lol! It’s SO flavorful and they definitely give you plenty. Mmm…

There’s something really comforting about the combination of hot melted mozzarella and greasy pepperoni, lol! I guess that’s why I loved the meat combo slice. :)

The Elite Cafe, San Francisco CA
I’m not sure how they were able to pack SO much flavor into this gumbo, but it was delicious! The was a nice smokiness to it and the seafood were cooked perfectly. I could have devoured another bowl of this gumbo!

Lavender Bistro, La Quinta CA
I love duck, and when it’s cooked two ways, it’s even better! :) This time around, I actually liked the seared duck breast better than the leg confit. I didn’t much care for the squash, but the sauce was delicious!
Breadsticks, butter and hummus. Complimentary
Lettuce, tomato, RubySauce, cheddar cheese. Served with fries. $8.99
Ruby’s Diner, Cabazon CA
Meh, this burger was ok, but nothing special. The patty was a bit overdone and dry, and the French fries were just ok too.
