Chicken mole, carnitas, and fish. 3 for $10
El Sabor del Taco, Washington DC
These tacos were decent. I liked the corn tortillas, but they were thick enough to not have to double wrap the tacos. Ugh, too many carbs! The fillings were ok but they were kinda bland. I definitely had to use the lime and pour plenty of salsa on each.

On Fridays, there’s a small farmers market outside the Ronald Reagan Building. It was a warm day so I decided to grab one of these ice creams. Since I’m a lover of everything peach, I opted for the peach pie flavor. It was fun to watch her make the ice cream and it tasted great. It had peach bits, peach puree, and pie crumbles. Mmm!

Pork marinated in Korean hot pepper paste, served with rice, house ginger dressing salad, spicy chicken wing, fried cheese roll with spicy mayo, and yogurt drink. $8.99
Korean BBQ Taco Box, Washington DC
This was ok. It certainly came with plenty of food, but not much finesse to any of it. The pork was a bit dry and some pieces were difficult to chew. I liked the variety of their rice box though.

Malbec braised short ribs, caramelized onion, chimichurri. $4
El Sur, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this empanada was delicious! The crust was delicately thin and buttery and the filling was simply delicious. The meat was tender and the caramelized onions were perfect. Noms!

Cheddar mayo, lettuce, onion, pickle, roasted bone marrow. $11
Kronner Burger, San Francisco CA
This business actually sucks. They once had a storefront on Mission Street, but they would hold odd hours and wouldn’t open when they felt like it – SO annoying. I went there once and waited outside with 8 other people before we all realized that they probably weren’t going to open that day. I think that’s just a shady and disrespectful business practice.
Anyway I only bought this burger because I wanted to check it off my 7×7 list and they were at the Mission Street Food Festival. That said, the burger with bone marrow was pretty damn delicious.

Kronner Burger door that never opened! Lame.
I attended my first Nats game this summer and I really enjoyed their ballpark. (It’s no AT&T Park, but I’m biased, lol!) The Nationals Park was clean and the fans were friendly and well behaved. They also had a great selection of food and drinks. Large $9.75
Base Line Brews, Washington DC
Pork loin sliced, fried yams, marinated onions in lime juice, and creme de recoto. $9
Sanguchon, San Francisco CA
This sandwich was really tasty and the pork was juicy and flavorful. I also thought the bread was good, but it was a little thick for my liking.
