Anson Mills cheddar grits, poached eggs, fried shallots. $14
Magnolia Pub and Brewery, San Francisco CA
Gross! This was probably the most bland dish I’ve ever eaten that had pork belly and/or grits in it; and I’ve eaten a lot of dishes! I ate half of it because I was starving, then couldn’t eat any more of the crap. The service was also atrocious! The seater tried to make a joke but ended up just being offensive. I didn’t get water until halfway through the meal, and the server was completely clueless about everything whenever she decided to make a rare appearance. I don’t think I have any reason to return to this restaurant.
Blue Bell Bitter beer. $7
7×7 Magazine’s The Big Eat San Francisco: 100 Things to Eat + Drink Before You Die – 2010
Izakaya Roku, San Francisco CA
This was more like salmon sashimi than carpaccio in my book, but what do I know? Hehe. I loved that they threw in salmon roe though and topped everything with greens! The dish was very pretty and tasty to boot – a winner.
Sapporo beer. Happy hour $2
Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, served with French fries. $10.50
Firewood Cafe, San Francisco International Airport(SFO)
As airport food goes, Firewood Cafe is solid. It’s a good value and the food is actually pretty good. This burger was moist and plenty big. I just wish they would toast the buns. The fries were delicious though!
Blue Moon and Sierra Nevada beers.
Jar of kosher dills. $2
Kiss Cafe, Seattle WA
I thought this was really cute to serve a jar of pickles with tongs. The dills tasted great and weren’t too sour or pickle-y.
I can’t remember what kind of beer this was, but they were pretty light like a hefeweizen. I’m no beer expert, so I’m probably wrong, lol!
Habanero Cider, Finnriver Cidery, Chimacum, WA. $8
The Noble Fir, Seattle WA
Mmm, both these glass were really tasty! The habanero cider had just the right amount of habanero flavor without getting too hot and making it unpleasant to drink. And the Imperial Red with chocolate was bold and delicious.
Red Sea Imperial Red with Chocolate, Caldera/Big Island Collab, Portland, OR. $9
Margarita. Happy hour 90 PHP
Happy hours can last for quite a while in Boracay. This one at Pat’s was form 4-8, but it’s often difficult to know whether you’re actually getting a deal since the prices are inflated from the beginning and they always seem to pour weakly during happy hour anyway. When in doubt, just stick with beer. :)
San Miguel light beer. Happy hour, 2 for 100 PHP
Long island iced tea. Happy hour 90 PHP
Entertainment at Pat’s Creek Bar. The bands that played at Pat’s were actually really good. I think the musicians on the island just kinda rotate between all the restaurants and bars though.
Grilled spiced minced beef tenderloin, cheese, tomato, cucumber, lettuce, mayo and mustard. Served with French fries. 380 PHP
Christina’s, Boracay PHILIPPINES
Mmm, I love getting served poolside. You don’t have to get up or expend and energy, AHHHH! The East Wing pool had menus from Chistina’s that you could order from so we got an afternoon snack to tide us over before dinner. This is why I have to work out every day, lol! (When I’m not on vacation.)
San Miguel light. 90 PHP
Kiddie pool, Boracay Regency.
