Johnny’s bbq sauce, onion rings, smoked cheddar, and bacon served with crinkle-cut fries and a pickle. $11.95
Bongo Johnny’s, Palm Springs CA
The bacon was the best part of this burger because it was cooked perfectly. The patty was tender enough but a bit on the bland side. It could have been seasoned a bit better so thank goodness for the bbq sauce. Overall, it was ok.
Served open-faced, garnished with lettuce, red onion and tomato, served with coleslaw. $14.95
Sherman’s Deli and Bakery, Palm Springs CA
Wow, another amazing and gigantic sandwich from Sherman’s! I love coming here because the food is predictably delicious and there’s enough food for two meals. Mmm, I love this place!
Pickles and sauerkraut. Complimentary
Fried egg, shredded papaya, lotus root relish, pickled carrots and daikon, topped with Vietnamese herbs, spicy mayo, and fried shallots over brown rice and grilled pork. $11.75
Bun Mee, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this was a great, creative Vietnamese salad. The combination of ingredients was great and it was pretty hearty for a salad. I’m a sucker for eggs on top of everything so they had me there. I especially liked the lotus root relish because it was very different.
Ecuadorian tilapia, Negra Modelo beer battered and fried, with salsa verde, sour cream, and house slaw. $3.95
Tropisueno, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this fish taco was very tasty. I liked the beer batter and it wasn’t greasy at all. Top it with some more salsa from their salsa bar and you have a winner!
Platter with rice, black beans and salad. $8.75
Casa Mexicana II, San Francisco CA
This was decent. I thought the mole sauce was good, but it could have been a bit more complex and rich in flavor. Definitely a good amount of food for the price though. The service here is hit or miss though. They completely frustrated me at times…
Brown rice and spinach. $10
Bar Tartine, San Francisco CA
This salad was actually really delicious, but it was nothing more than a snack. The serving was REALLY small especially for the price. I was really annoying.
Strawberry and juniper soda. $6
You really can’t go to a SF Giants game and not eat garlic fries! They just go together so perfectly. And don’t worry about garlic breath since everyone else will have it too. $8
Derby Grill, San Francisco CA
