Pork wonton soup - Lee's Deli
With bok choy, green onion, cilantro. $5.95
Lee’s Deli, San Francisco CA

I really like wonton soups even though they’re overloaded with salt. This was especially salty and the pork wontons were pretty fatty! It’s exactly what I expected and I totally enjoyed it, lol!

Chung qing wings – New Ming’s Restaurant

Chung qing wings - New Ming's Restaurant
Dried peppers, Sichuan peppers, garlic, ginger, scallions, sesame. $10.95
New Ming’s Restaurant, San Francisco CA

These chicken wings were certainly flavorful. They weren’t necessarily hot or spicy, but all the different peppers kind of numbed your mouth anyway. What I didn’t like was that the wings were all cut up and so there were bone shards everywhere. I thought I was going to cut the inside of my mouth by accidentally biting into some. This also wasn’t a great value since there weren’t that may wing pieces. I wouldn’t order these again.

Fried chicken po-boy – Starbelly

Fried chicken po-boy - Starbelly
Jalapano and radicchio slaw, sesame bun, served with French fries. $10
Starbelly, San Francisco CA

I liked the idea of this po’boy sandwich and I think that it’s a great value, but the chicken was over-fried and dry. Ew! Even the slaw and ketchup couldn’t save it. :(  At least the fries were good.

Crispy duck salad – Hakkasan

Crispy duck salad - Hakkasan
Fried duck with glaze, pomelo, pine nut, shallot, micro greens, pomegranate seeds, fried lotus. $28
Hakkasan, San Francisco CA

Wow, this salad was amazing! But I’m still slightly reeling from the price tag for a lunch time salad though. Pretty steep, but worth it. The duck was melt-in-your-mouth tender and super juicy. It was nice and fatty and oh so flavorful. All the ingredients worked well together and created a very playful and fun dish. I would totally order this again, but maybe after a few days of just eating ramen to offset the cost. :)

Firewood Cafe, San Francisco International Airport(SFO)

I liked this burger too! The patty was a little on the done side for my taste, but it was still tasty overall. The mushrooms were plump and juicy and the fries were killer.

Spicy catfish lunch special – Banana House

Spicy catfish lunch special - Banana House
Sauteed crispy catfish in spicy chili paste, with beans and basil. Served with brown rice and salad. $13
Banana House, San Francisco CA

Mmm, this was pretty tasty! I liked that it was actually spicy too! I’m sure it was packed with sodium, but it still had a distinct catfish flavor and it was delicious. The portion could have been a bit larger but it was still good overall.
