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.

Bbq combo plate – 4505 Meats

Bbq combo plate - 4505 Meats
Brisket, smoked chicken, pork spare ribs, with B&B pickles, coleslaw, potato salad, white bread. $15
4505 Meats, San Francisco CA

Mmm, this combo plate was delicious! It’s a bit pricy for a food stand at lunch, but the meats are certainly quality. I was really surprised at how tender and smoky the chicken was. It almost looked undercooked, but it was so juicy and perfect. The brisket and spare ribs were also super tasty. Noms!

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.

Hanoi style beef noodle soup – Basil Leaf Asian Cuisine

Hanoi style beef noodle soup - Basil Leaf Asian Cuisine
Pho bo. Lightly stir-fried eye round steak, ginger and garlic served with fresh noodle. Small $7.50
Basil Leaf Asian Cuisine, Fremont CA

This soup was pretty good, but I didn’t like that the beef weren’t all sliced in cross section so that some of the slices were a bit difficult to chew. The broth had great flavor though!

Chicken and beef combo plate – Ono Hawaiian BBQ

Chicken and beef combo plate - Ono Hawaiian BBQ
Bbq chicken and bbq beef, served with two scoops of rice, one scoop macaroni salad, and vegetables.
Ono Hawaiian BBQ, San Francisco CA

Ugh, the beef was really dry and gristly! The chicken was ok. I appreciate that Hawaiian bbq is fatty but I think these were especially greasy, yuck. The scoop of macaroni salad did help to ease my disappointment.

Ugh, another gross burger from Carl’s Jr. The beef patty is SO small that you can’t even see it! Remind me never to come here again!

Jalapeno six dollar burger - Carl's Jr.
Black angus beef patty, pepperjack cheese, jalapenos, Santa Fe Sauce, lettuce, tomato. $7.06
Carl’s Jr., San Francisco CA

Fast food burgers NEVER look as good as the menu photos, but this hamburger from Carl’s Jr. is just pathetic! I just want to laugh at how ridiculously small and unappetizing it looks. I guess that’s what I get for succumbing to my fast food urges.
