The #19 sandwich - Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen
Corned beef on rye with ‘slaw, Russian, and cold swiss cheese. Their tribute to Langer’s Deli in LA. $13.75
Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen, San Francisco CA

I love the sandwiches at Wise Sons. The meats are spectacular and the rye bread is divine. They’re a bit expensive, but I think that the quality is worth it. This sandwich was delicious and messy – just how I like it!

Gamja fries – Namu Gaji

Gamja fries - Namu Gaji
A poutine-like stoner favorite. Hand cut organic potato, kimchee relish, gochujang, kewpie mayo, teriyaki, green onion, bulgogi beef. $10
Namu Gaji, San Francisco CA

These French fries are a lot of everything! I can see why they’re a popular hangover item. The bulgogi was really good and I liked all the different condiments. Perhaps it was because I wasn’t hung over, but these fries were verging on too much flavor-attack for me.

Sommariva mimosa. $10
I was not impressed by this flat, overpriced mimosa.

Lamb scrumpets – The Cavalier

Lamb scrumpets - The Cavalier
Pickled mint and chile. $15
The Cavalier, San Francisco CA

I wasn’t sure what I was gonna get when I ordered these lamb scrumpets. I thought maybe it would be similar to a pasty or something. They ended up being breaded and fried lamb riblets, and they were AMAZING! They were tender, flavorful, and perfectly fried. The accompanying mint and chile sauce was great too. NOMS!

Sandwich cubano - Paladar Cafe Cubano
Hot pressed bocadillo with roast pork, ham, swiss cheese, pickles, mayo and mustard. Served with bowl of soup and house plantain chips. Lunch special $11.75
Paladar Cafe Cubano, San Francisco CA

Eh, I wasn’t too impressed with this meal. I thought the pork was ok, but the sandwich was kinda dry and not properly pressed. I expected more because I had heard good things from fellow FiDi workers.

Mmm, these oyster were small, fresh and perfect! I liked the champagne mignonette, but didn’t use much of the freshly grated horseradish. I also love coming to District because my favorite waiter (and friend) always hooks us up!
