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.

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.

Cassoulet – Cafe Bastille

Cassoulet - Cafe Bastille
Duck confit, toulouse and garlic sausage, and white beans. Three course dinner prix fixe $35
Cafe Bastille, San Francisco CA

I love cassoulets because they’re so hearty and delicious. And with both duck confit and sausage, you really can’t go wrong. This duck was nice but I actually liked the sausage even more. Noms!

Camarones al pisco – Fresca

Camarones al pisco - Fresca
Marinated sauteed shrimp, garlic, pisco, spicy tomato sauce with a touch of cream, grilled garlic toast. $14
Fresca, San Francisco CA

This dish was really tasty! The shrimp were well prepared and the tomato sauce was delicious. I was glad that they gave us more bread because the two dinky pieces was definitely not enough to sop up the yummy sauce. Noms!

Gnocchi with milk-braised pork – Pesce

Gnocchi with milk-braised pork - Pesce
Maiale al latte. Pancetta, sage. $14
Pesce, San Francisco CA

I was surprised when this came out and it was almost a thick soup. When I read gnocchi, I thought it was gonna be a dry pasta dish. It’s pretty great that chefs can prepare food in so many ways. This dish was super rich and hearty, but it wasn’t my favorite. I’m not sure that I liked the gnocchi as a soup after all.

Szechuan beef – Jasmine Tea House

Szechuan beef - Jasmine Tea House
$9.50
Jasmine Tea House, San Francisco CA

I’m a sucker for salty, deep fried, saucy Chinese food so this dish was right up my alley! They pack a lot of food into those delivery containers so I can’t complain. The beef is probably not the best quality, but I really like the flavor of the dish and they can make it on the spicier side too.
