Lamb burger banh mi – Belcampo Meat Co.

Lamb burger banh mi - Belcampo Meat Co.
Ground lamb shoulder and belly, pickled carrots, daikon, jalapeno, cucumber, cilantro, sriracha mayo, fries. $17
Belcampo Meat Co., Larkspur CA

The kitchen was kind enough to split the order between two plates, and we didn’t even ask. That was cool! The burger was very tasty. I loved the lamb flavor and the patty was juicy and tender. I also liked the Vietnamese flavors. What I didn’t like was the weird ketchup. It was super sweet and kinda ruined the perfectly delicious fries.

Trout tostadas – Cala

Trout tostadas - Cala
With chipotle, avocado, and fried leeks. $16
Cala, San Francisco CA

These were pretty tasty, and I thought that the fried leeks were a great component. I thought that the texture of the trout was verging on the slimy side, but that didn’t stop me from devouring these little bites!

Assorted tacos - The Castro Republic
Heritage carnitas, adobo chicken, and beer-marinated steak. On organic corn tortilla, onion, cilantro relish, lime, and roasted tomatillo salsa. Taco Wednesday, each $2
The Castro Republic, San Francisco CA

These definitely hit the spot on a random Wednesday night. And I’m totally down with the two dollar price tag. While most places observe Taco Tuesday, they do Taco Wednesday at The Castro Republic!
