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.

Street tacos - Publico Urban Taqueria
Pollo asado and carne asada with salsa casera, red onion and cilantro. Each $2.29
Publico Urban Taqueria, San Francisco CA

Publico is a random food window in a shopping complex, but the food is pretty good and I love the salsa that they use. The tacos are a decent size and the price is great for a little shopping snack.

Toasted flour tortilla filled with ground beef and melted mozzarella cheese. Drizzled with garlic mayo and smoky barbeque sauce. 240 PHP

Holy cow quesadilla - Holy Cow!
I was excited for this quesadilla, but when it came out there was way too much sauce on top. I certainly like saucy things, but I don’t know if I really wanted that much mayonnaise on my quesadilla. Some of the right flavors were there, but I think the tortillas were old. They tasted a bit musty like it was about to mold.

Champ burger meal – Jollibee

Champ burger - Jollibee
1/3 pound beef patty, lettuce, tomato, cheese, ketchup and mayo. Served with French fries and soft drink. 145 PHP
Jollibee, Manila PHILIPPINES

This burger tasted pretty similar to those in the States. I’ve found that sometimes hamburgers can taste drastically different depending on the country and the local ingredients used. This was one was decent and hearty enough. The French fries were pretty tasty too!

Mmm, I don’t think most Americans have ever tasted Filipino style spaghetti, but it’s the best! I love the sweet meaty sauce, and it’s super addictive. I could eat a huge plate of this and still go back for more. NOMS!
