Warm banana bread – 1760

Warm banana bread - 1760
‘Chunky monkey’ ice cream, peanut butter crunch. $9
1760, San Francisco CA

This was probably one of the better dishes I tried at 1760 and I’m not even a huge dessert person. That doesn’t mean that this dessert completely rocked, just that the other dishes weren’t all that good. I’m also a sucker for caramelized bananas! Although the plate was a little messy and chaotic, this dish tasted pretty yummy! (The banana bread could’ve been a little warmer though).

Bbq pork belly – 1760

Bbq pork belly - 1760
Cole slaw, purple potato salad, pickled red onion, carrot, pea shoot. $21
1760, San Francisco CA

This tasted good, but I think it was overpriced for the portion. I also think that the sour/tart flavors dominated the dish and I hoped for more luscious bbq flavors to rise through. The purple potato salad wasn’t my favorite thing either. I’ve had purple potato salad before but they had better flavor and texture than this one by 1760. Overall, I kinda think that this restaurant is overrated. There were more missteps than successes during this meal.

Burrata - 1760
Grilled bread, garbanzo beans, asian pear, walnuts. $13
1760, San Francisco CA

Mmm, this was pretty tasty! I loved the sculptural presentation and the variety of textures. I think there was also some pickled onions in there so it was all good. ūüôā

Hamachi crudo – 1760

Hamachi crudo - 1760
Bulgogi vinaigrette, ‘siracha’, celery, yuzu, satsuma. $17
1760, San Francisco CA

Hmm, this was a pretty new and inventive dish for me, but did it really work? I’d say no for several reasons. I don’t think all the flavors worked in harmony. The bulgogi flavor with citrus from the satsuma and yuzu along with sriracha and creeping rosemary really didn’t do it for me. There was too many strong, competing flavors so it each bite was confusing. There was also very little hamachi on the plate. The rosemary and and celery ribs were also stringy and unpleasant to chew through. (And they misspelled ‘siracha’ on their menu.)

Lobster ceviche – 1760

Lobster ceviche - 1760
Caramelized coconut, pineapple, kaffir lime. $17
1760, San Francisco CA

I think that this dish was pretty to look at, but it didn’t taste very good. I don’t think that all the tropical flavors really accentuated the lobster, and the sticky white sauce on the bottom was just weird and had a off-putting texture. I couldn’t even recognize some of the ingredients and was left wondering what exactly went wrong.
