Sauteed eggplant, bell pepper, bean sauce and fresh basil. $12
Thai House Express, San Francisco CA
This was decent. Surprisingly, it was on the bland side, but I thought that the chicken breast slices were nice and tender. I would have liked some heat or at least more flavor though.
Snails on potato canapes, porcini, garlic butter sauce. $14
Le Zinc, San Francisco CA
This was delicious. I liked how they served the escargots atop the potato medallions. I just wish there was enough potatoes for all of the snails. They had a large pile of escargots on one side that was a bit too rich to eat without the starchy potatoes.
French grilled ham and cheese sandwich with egg “over easy” on top, side salad. $14
Cafe de la Presse, San Francisco CA
This was pretty damn tasty! It probably wasn’t the best choice to have with the onion soup since I’m trying not to gain 100 pounds, hehe. I really enjoyed it though. It was rich and flavorful and I appreciated the nicely dressed salad to help cut some of the richness of the croque madame.
Shrimp dumpling, chive and shrimp dumpling, beef crepe roll, chicken siu mai, shark fin dumpling.
Good Mong Kok Bakery, San Francisco CA
This was pretty good, and I’m glad that the dim sum wasn’t dry like some places. They were also on the larger side which was a bonus. I loved all the different flavors and you can’t beat the low prices. There was a line for lunch and it’s kind of intimidating to order though, lol.
Crispy potato, smashed turnip, walnut, bagna cauda. Family style menu, $60 per person
Al’s Place, San Francisco CA
This was fine, but nothing earth-shattering. What I’m really over is this plate-everything-to-one-side crap though. Like this chinaware is so beautiful that I need to see the bottom of it. I think it’s pretty tacky.
Veggie, pakora, veggie samosa, tandoori chicken, chicken tikka masala, chana masala, gajar muttar, naan. $13.99
North India, San Francisco CA
I really liked the large buffet selection at North India. They had a great variety and had dishes that you don’t normally see for lunch buffets. However, the service was really awkward and made for an uncomfortable lunch. They just need to back off a little bit.
Smoked onions, frisee, and horseradish cream cheese. $10
The Sentinel, San Francisco CA
This sandwich was pretty awesome! They packed it with plenty of tender, juicy roast beef and the horseradish cream cheese was a great condiment (it wasn’t too strong and overpowering).
