Battered and fried. $0.99 each El Zarape, San Diego CA
Omg, these fish tacos were amazing! And I wasn’t even drunk when I had them, lol! At a buck a pop, you really can’t go wrong with these delicious bites. El Zarape was packed when we went and I’m sure that’s a constant since the food is pretty darn good.
Spaghetti, prawns, clams, mussels, fish, garlic, basil, white wine, red sauce. $15.95 Boulevard Cafe, Daly City CA
This restaurant is one of those places where the menu is gigantic and appears to contain food from all cuisines. Usually the food at these places are sorely lacking, but the things I ordered were actually pretty good. The tutto mare had plenty of seafood which I was surprised about since most places will skimp of the more expensive proteins. It had bold flavors and the pasta was perfectly al dente.
Avgolemono soup. Traditional Greek soup with chicken, rice, lemon and egg. $2.95
This was OK. It was mostly broth.
Mmm, this was SO good and filling! I also liked the root vegetable chips that came with it. They were hearty and helped cut a lot of the saltiness from the proteins. I will say that my least favorite pupu was the Ka’lua pork. It was a bit on the dry side. Noms overall!
Avocado, tomato, cabbage, sriracha aioli, lime. $16 Circa 59, Palm Springs CA
Wow, I can’t believe I paid $16 for what looks like a pile of barf! The crispy fish nuggets weren’t even crispy – they were super soggy as was the super greasy tortillas that surround this messy dish. I felt like a 5 year old eating the little fish bits in my tacos.
As nice as this restaurant purports to be, they sorely lack in service and food for that matter. We were seated outside without misters and for some reason the scarce waiters refused to give us any water. We had to flag down management to finally get any water. WTF!?
Pool table area, Riviera Resort. I think that’s Mr. T on the left(?).
House pickled jalapeno and radicchio slaw, mixed greens salad with goat cheese and tomatoes, pickled jalapenos, limes. $9 Starbelly, San Francisco CA
I loved the texture of the fish, but they were difficult to taste among all the other ingredients. They were nicely cooked though and not greasy at all. The salad was actually my favorite part. The tomatoes and goat cheese were delicious!
Yellow, magenta and peach dahlia flowers (Dahlia sp., Asteraceae), Noe Street. Not many houses in my neighborhood have front yards, and while this one is just a small strip of grass, I like that they’ve planted these bright dahlias.
Six inch soft corn tortillas with cayenne ranch sauce, shredded lettuce, grated cheddar cheese, and tomato-cucumber pico salsa. $2.95 The Taco Spot, Charleston SC
This was my favorite taco because it was jam packed with flavor! The blackened grouper was delicious and the cayenne ranch put it over the top. Noms!
View of Charleston Harbor from the Rooftop Bar at the Vendue Inn. This bar is pretty cool! It’s relaxing early on, then it becomes an upbeat hangout as it fills up with bar goers. They also have live music!
