Memphis pulled pork sandwich – Roadside BBQ

Memphis pulled pork sandwich - Roadside BBQ
Slow-cooked and served lean and tender. Served Memphis style – topped with homemade coleslaw and a side of mac ‘n cheese. $8.95
Roadside BBQ, San Rafael CA

I’m back!!! Sorry I’ve been away for over a month. I had family obligations and then was traveling for work. But it’s nice to be back in San Francisco. Hope you all have been doing great!

This sandwich was very tasty. The pork had a nice smoky flavor to it, but it definitely benefited from a few healthy doses of bbq sauce while eating. I liked the mac and cheese but thought it could have been creamier.

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!

I love cassoulets because they’re so hearty and delicious. And with both duck confit and sausage, you really can’t go wrong. This duck was nice but I actually liked the sausage even more. Noms!

Gnocchi with milk-braised pork – Pesce

Gnocchi with milk-braised pork - Pesce
Maiale al latte. Pancetta, sage. $14
Pesce, San Francisco CA

I was surprised when this came out and it was almost a thick soup. When I read gnocchi, I thought it was gonna be a dry pasta dish. It’s pretty great that chefs can prepare food in so many ways. This dish was super rich and hearty, but it wasn’t my favorite. I’m not sure that I liked the gnocchi as a soup after all.

Hawaiian pizzas have always been my favorite and they tend to pack relatively fewer calories which is a bonus! I love the pizza crust at Marcello’s. It’s on the thinner side and has a great bite to it.

Crab and tomato noodle soup – Soup Junkie

Crab and tomato noodle soup - Soup Junkie
Bun rieu. Signature noodle soup topped with crab omelette, curled cabbage, housemade pork meatballs, tomatoes, fresh herbs, and silky rice noodles. $9.50
Soup Junkie, San Francisco CA

This soup was really tasty and surprisingly light even with all the different toppings. The crab omelette was a winner and really took me back to childhood when we would makes these for days after a crabbing outing. The pork meatballs were also very good and added another dimension to the delicious soup.

Spicy miso ramen – Ramen Underground

Spicy miso ramen - Ramen Underground
With kakuni (braised pork belly) and boiled egg.
Ramen Underground, San Francisco CA

Wow, this ramen was really good. The spicy miso broth had a great kick to it and lots of flavor. They have a basic ramen bowl, and you just keep adding extra toppings at additional cost. It’s really about the broth and ramen though, and this place is solid in both aspects. Everything else is just icing on the cake.
