Combo over rice plate – Halal Cart

Combo over rice plate - Halal Cart
Lamb gyro and chicken with basmati rice, pita, and salad. $10
Halal Cart, San Francisco CA

I still love this combo plate for lunch. It’s definitely on the heavy side especially with all the white sauce and if you eat all of it at once. The hot sauce has been inconsistent the few times I’ve gone though. It was really hot to start with, but now it’s been kinda on the mild side. I like it when it’s on the hotter side.

Watermelon and wings - The Beauty Shop Restaurant
White Szechuan pepper, sugar dust, sweet chile lime sauce, greens, toasted cashews, Maytag blue cheese. $13
The Beauty Shop Restaurant, Memphis TN

Mmm, these were so tasty! I loved the sauce on the chicken wings and the toppings were great too. I don’t think I’ve ever had chicken wings and watermelon together, but the combo was great. The wings were also super large so this dish was substantial.

Pork ribs and brisket combination – Charles Vergos’ Rendezvous

Pork ribs and brisket combination - Charles Vergos' Rendezvous
World-famous Rendezvous charcoal-broiled pork ribs, beef brisket, served with beans and slaw. $21.95
Charles Vergos’ Rendezvous, Memphis TN

Omg, I think these were my favorite ribs in Memphis. I know that they’re not Memphis style, but they were the most flavorful and juicy of all the ribs I tried. The rub that they use is frickin’ delicious! It was very herbaceous and had so many spices. NOMS! The brisket was good too, but the ribs were the star. I liked the baked beans, but the slaw was too vinegar-y for my taste.
