Beef brisket, pulled pork shoulder, pulled smoked turkey, with B&B pickles, coleslaw, potato salad, white bread. $15 4505 Meats, San Francisco CA
I love going to the Ferry Building and getting 4505 Meats for lunch. Their bbq is SO good and it’s always nice to get out of the office and stroll over to the Embarcadero. I think that $15 a plate is pushing it on lunch pricing, but the food is SO tasty that I can’t complain too much.
Brisket, smoked chicken, pork spare ribs, with B&B pickles, coleslaw, potato salad, white bread. $15 4505 Meats, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this combo plate was delicious! It’s a bit pricy for a food stand at lunch, but the meats are certainly quality. I was really surprised at how tender and smoky the chicken was. It almost looked undercooked, but it was so juicy and perfect. The brisket and spare ribs were also super tasty. Noms!
Grass fed, dry aged beef from Magruder Ranch with juicy tomato, lettuce and cheese on a toasted house made buttery sesame scallion bun. $8 4505 Meats, San Francisco
This is one of those wonderful burgers that melts in your mouth. The bun is so light and buttery that it simply dissolves against the roof of your mouth. The beef patty is exceptionally juicy and the entire burger is intoxicating! Noms!

Deep fried pork skins seasoned with chili, sugar and salt. $3.50 4505 Meats, San Francisco
WOW, these things are SO flavorful and addicting! I grew up in a traditional Filipino household so I’ve had my share of chicharrones, but these are like none I’ve ever tasted. They are so light and pillowy and they practically melt in your mouth to form a sticky, caramelly substance that you have to pick out from between your teeth. Absolutely amazing! I quickly ate an entire bag in one sitting and could have easily devoured a couple more bags afterward. I can taste them in my mouth as I write this – they’re THAT good!
