Pan fried shishito peppers with sea salt. $6
Hog & Rocks, San Francisco
They give you quite a lot of peppers for six dollars! I’ve heard that one out of ten peppers is HOT, but this plate had a much higher percentage of hot peppers. They weren’t too spicy, just hot enough to surprise you every time. Shishito peppers have such a great flavor, and they’re longer than, say, padron peppers so they’re funner to eat. I like the padron flavor better, though. These shishitos were very good, but maybe a bit too greasy.
