Smoked onions, frisee, and horseradish cream cheese. $10
The Sentinel, San Francisco CA
This sandwich was pretty awesome! They packed it with plenty of tender, juicy roast beef and the horseradish cream cheese was a great condiment (it wasn’t too strong and overpowering).
Stinging nettle, brown butter, soba. Tasting menu $155
Lazy Bear, San Francisco CA
I loved the flavor and texture of the charred artichoke halves, and who doesn’t love a dish with stinging nettles!? Another satisfying and wonderful dish!
Xiao long bao. Soup dumplings with shrimp and pork, served with sweet soy sauce and ginger. $4.75
Mama Ji’s, San Francisco CA
This tasted good, but I still hate that they use the little foil bowls. I think it cheapens XLB dumplings. Also, the service was horrendously slow! Ugh!
Affligem blonde. Each $8
Weaver’s Coffee & Tea, San Francisco CA
Maybe this pastry had been sitting around all day, but it was dry and lifeless. I derived no pleasure from eating this sad danish. #foodfail
With bacon, pickled onion. $8
Eureka Restaurant & Lounge, San Francisco CA
I love deviled eggs and these did not disappoint. They had a nice flavor, and the bacon and pickled onion were great toppers.
Raw, seasoned ground beef, mixed greens, cornichons. $13
Le Zinc, San Francisco CA
This wasn’t my favorite. The beef had an odd flavor and the tartare wasn’t chopped all the way through. I would try to retrieve a small amount only to realized that most of it was still connected. Hmm. I really didn’t even want to eat the entire thing.
Soupe a l’oignon. Melted cheese. $10
Cafe de la Presse, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this soup was delicious! It had a great, rich onion flavor and the stewed onions underneath were wonderful.
