Philly cheesesteak – Charley’s Grilled Subs

Philly cheesesteak - Charley's Grilled Subs
Steak, grilled onions, green peppers, mushrooms and white American cheese, lettuce, tomato, jalapeno, banana peppers, pickles. Regular $7.99
Charley’s Grilled Subs, San Francisco CA

This really wasn’t what I expected when I ordered a philly cheesesteak. I enjoyed that there were a lot of veggies in there, but at the same time there was very little steak and cheese! And this really didn’t fill me up at all, so unless I have a coupon, I’m probably not going back.

Pork adobo & bbq chicken skewer – Inay Filipino Kitchen

Pork adobo & bbq chicken skewer - Inay Filipino Kitchen
Skewer with Ma’s calamansi bbq sauce. Served with garlic fried rice. 2-item combo $9.75
Inay Filipino Kitchen, San Francisco CA

Filipino food is so comforting! It’s fatty and salty and super unhealthy, but boy does it taste good! I liked the pork adobo and garlic rice especially with more adobo sauce poured on top. The chicken skewer had a good flavor, but it was a little dry.

St. Louis style dry rubbed ribs – Bitters Bock & Rye

St. Louis style dry rubbed ribs - Bitters Bock & Rye
Served with potato salad and corn on the cob. Half rack $22.75
Bitters Bock & Rye, San Francisco CA

I love bbq, and these ribs were pretty good. Not the best (kinda dry actually), but they were nice and smoky with a great flavor. And with a bunch of bbq sauce squeezed on top, they tasted just fine!

This was a really fun, chill bar with great drinks. There was only one bartender when our group arrived so the drinks were a little slow coming. Then we started playing Plinko and it was all a blur from there, lol!

English trifle – House of Prime Rib

English trifle - House of Prime Rib
Grand Marnier creme anglaise. $9
House of Prime Rib, San Francisco CA

This trifle was simple, light, and perfect after a large prime rib dinner! Although the House of Prime Rib is super touristy, it’s one of San Francisco’s oldest restaurants and is a mainstay. The prime rib is also delicious and the service is great. The host was a bit of a jerk, but I guess it’s easy to develop an attitude when having to deal with so many tourists during a shift.
