A16, San Francisco CA

Eh, I wasn’t very impressed with this dish. I felt like it could have been more rich and flavorful, and the sauce could have been a little thicker. There also wasn’t any starch or something carb-y to balance the dish. Thank goodness we ordered a side of polenta.

I must admit that despite my horrible dining experience here, these patatas bravas were frickin’ amazing! These were probably some of the best patatas bravas I’ve ever had, and that’s saying a lot. I’m still skeptical of this restaurant, but at least I know that they have a dish that I’ll enjoy.
