Cheeseburger – Hi Tops

Cheeseburger - Hi Tops
With cheese, lettuce, tomato, dressing, pickle. Served with side salad.
Hi Tops, San Francisco CA

This burger was pretty tasty and quite filling. The patty was nice and juicy and the whole thing just ate cleanly. The side salad was my concession for having a huge burger, lol!

Ol’ Dirty Biscuit – Ace Biscuit & Barbecue

Ol' Dirty Biscuit - Ace Biscuit & Barbecue
Fried chicken, sausage gravy, dill pickles, smoked pimiento cheese. $9 – Side of waffles. $5.50
Ace Biscuit & Barbecue, Charlottesville VA

I didn’t think this was very good. I think the biscuit would have been fine without the pimento cheese since there was already gravy. Also, the waffles were really limp and bland. Not my favorite breakfast.

Fennel absinthe bonbon – Pineapple & Pearls

Fennel absinthe bonbon - Pineapple & Pearls
Bar seating $180
Pineapple & Pearls, Washington DC

This fennel bonbon was beautiful and it tasted great! It was carefully presented over an absinthe cocktail garnished with a sachet of herbs. They said that they were going to phase this amuse bouche out to make room for new items. I’m so glad I was able to try it before then!

Meatball and polenta – Farmers Fishers Bakers

Meatball and polenta - Farmers Fishers Bakers
Artichoke dip, guacamole, tortilla chips, flatbread. Brunch buffet $29.99
Farmers Fishers Bakers, Washington DC

This probably looks like the most random plate them all, but these were some of the things I hadn’t tried yet. (Except for the artichoke dip which I had to get seconds of!) The meatball and polenta were great! I loved the creaminess of the polenta although it could have used a bit more salt.

Eggs Louis “cayenne” – Rick’s Cafe

Eggs Louis cayenne - Rick's Cafe
2 poached eggs, crab meat, spinach, English muffins, homemade “cayenne” hollandaise sauce, served with potatoes and fruit. $14.99
Rick’s Cafe, Los Altos CA

This was good, but nothing really jumped out at me. I did like that they provided a lot of spinach. The potatoes (and fruit) were kinda sad though. And even the “cayenne” hollandaise sauce was lackluster.
