I really miss this place and Taco Wednesday so I’m super sad that it closed. The tacos were always very good for being only two bucks each!

Sizzling cumin lamb – Spices

Sizzling cumin lamb - Spices
Onions, green peppers, chilies, scallions. $16.99
Spices, San Francisco CA

This was good, but I don’t know if it was seventeen dollars good for Chinese food. I also thought it was weird that it came out on aluminum foil while already on a dish. The lamb was also not that tender. I liked the cumin flavor, but it should be on a best-of-the-best list

Omg, this was SO good! I wish it was a little lighter (there was foie everywhere!) or had another fresh ingredient, but honestly I didn’t mind too much. I just felt guilty eating all of it, hehe.
