Hue style spicy noodle soup with beef. $9.55
Pho Express, San Francisco CA
They’ve increased the price of this noodle soup since the last time I had lunch here. It was still very tasty, but the beef was on the dry and chewy side. I didn’t eat much of the blood cubes since they have such a strong taste. I enjoyed this overall though.
Chicken and vegetables. €8.50
Bar el David del Ninot, Barcelona SPAIN
Even better than this delicious paella was the service from David the owner of this restaurant at the Mercat del Ninot. I loved the rich saffron flavor of this paella and the texture of the al dente bomba rice.
Foie gras, sausage, and peppers. Each €1.50
Taktika Berri, Barcelona SPAIN
This was my first plate of the warm tapas at Taktika Berri and they were delicious! I loved the foie gras and the sausage! The chilies weren’t very warm but they also had great flavor.
Topped with cheese, extra spread and grilled onions.
In-N-Out Burger, Mill Valley CA
I feel like whenever I order animal style fries, it becomes less about the French fries and more about the toppings. I find that I stop eating the fries once all the toppings are gone. What is wrong with me?! Lol! These are definitely a decadent item that I only get every once in a while.
Bosque Palermo, Barcelona SPAIN
I love padron peppers so I’m kinda surprised that it took us a few days in Barcelona before we finally ordered some. These peppers were pretty good, but our servers was really rude and just a plain jerk. I don’t think we’ll return to this restaurant. Boo!
Pinotxo Bar, Barcelona SPAIN
These oysters weren’t my favorite. They were on the large side, and they weren’t very cold. They were super meaty, and didn’t have that briny, crisp flavor that I prefer. The shells were also very flat which I’m just not used to, and the juice just gets everywhere when you’re trying to slip the oysters into your mouth. Hmm…
Ricotta, pine nuts, marsala. $48
Tosca Cafe, San Francisco CA
This was delicious! The breast wasn’t the most succulent roasted chicken I’ve had, but I loved the Italian flavors with the marsala sauce. I also thought it was super cute that they kept the chicken claws attached to the drums (sorry it’s cut off in the pic). Was it the best roasted chicken? No. But it was SO worth the relatively low $48 price tag for roasted chicken (for two people) in San Francisco.
