This popcorn was SO much better than the popcorn at Pink Zebra. It tasted great and I loved the Japanese flavors.

Calamari sope – Lolo

Calamari sope - Lolo
Blue corn masa, avocado puree and habanero crema. $11
Lolo, San Francisco CA

These were very cool and different. I thought that the squid ink in the sope was too overpowering though. I like squid ink, but they must have added A LOT of it into the masa. Otherwise, I thought it was a fun dish.

Tonga Room, San Francisco CA

Came here after work for happy hour and had a blast! The Tonga Room is a historical bar in San Francisco and I finally made it after SO many years of living in this wonderful city. The service can be bit hard to get a hold of since the place was packed from the get-go, but the drinks were yummy and you can’t beat the cheesy tiki atmosphere. And they have random rainstorms for goodness sake!
