Niman Ranch country pork chop – Fish & Farm

Niman Ranch country pork chop Fish & Farm

Pork chop cooked medium with fingerling potatoes, roasted bacon, sauteed spinach, salsa verde. $26
Fish & Farm, San Francisco

Omg, another great entree! This slab of a pork chop (it’s two frickin’ portions) was huge and delicous! I loved the salsa verde on top, it tasted amazing and the meat itself was cooked perfectly. It was SO tender and easy to cut. There are only a few entree items that Fish & Farm has kept on their menu since they’ve opened and this is one of them, and for good reason! I’ll admit that I wasn’t a huge fan of the stuff underneath though. It seemed a little clunky and superfluous compared to the amazing pork chop. I think the pork would do better on top of some sort of vegetable root puree. That way the pork gets to shine without the unnecessary distractions.

Niman Ranch cheeseburger – Fish & Farm

Niman Ranch cheeseburger Fish & Farm

Ground beef patty cooked medium with a fried farm egg, grilled onions, white cheddar, house made pickles, secret sauce, Acme bun, and French fries with fried parsley. $14 plus $2 additional for egg
Fish & Farm, San Francisco

Yum, this thing was delicious! You might think – a burger is a burger is a burger. Not so! There are plenty of shitty burgers out there and you all know it! This burger was absolutely nommy. It was also very large and I could only finish less that 3/4 of it. I didn’t even eat the top bun. I scraped the secret sauce off of it and set it aside. Way too much carbs already with the French fries and all.

The beef was so good and I loved their homemade pickles. Every part of that burger was good. The French fries was also delicious and I really like their dipping sauce. It took us awhile to figure out what it was, but I think we decided it was a horseradish bbq sauce. What a great combination! It was on the runny side, but it tasted great.

Marinated grilled calamari – Fish & Farm

Marinated grilled calamari Fish & Farm

With orange zest, garlic, shallots, parsley, olive oil, arugula and frisee. $12
Fish & Farm, San Francisco

This was SUPER good! When I read the menu item, I thought it was going to be more like calamari a la planxa – something whole and more dry. I was pleasantly surprised when this more salad-y dish arrived! I will say that there was A LOT of dressing on the squid, but I really didn’t mind because it was so good. It’s some of my favorite flavors and I’m gonna admit that I even used some bread to soak of the leftover dressing at the end, lol! The squid had a nice texture that wasn’t rubbery and the dish was quite large for an appetizer portion, heck yeah! I would definitely order this again.

Bread and butter Fish & Farm

Autumn salad – Fish & Farm

Autumn salad Fish & Farm

Red endive, frisee, red pear, candied walnuts, pomegranates, and Humboldt Fog goat cheese with mustard vinaigrette. Menu says $11 but receipt says $12 – BOO, LAME!!!
Fish & Farm, San Francisco

So the price discrepancy is totally lame! I don’t know if the menu wasn’t updated or out server was completely brain dead. I did mention during dinner that our server wasn’t very good compared to the server at the next table. Ours didn’t even give us the specials before we ordered. I didn’t even know there were specials available until the server at the adjacent table told her guests! Whatevs, our server was definitely “slow”, if you know what I mean.

This salad was tasty, but not very original.

Red bell pepper soup Fish & Farm

Red bell pepper soup. Complimentary. I really liked this shot of free soup. It was hot and very flavorful.

Cocktails – Fish & Farm

I enjoyed these cocktails at Fish & Farm but I don’t think they were worth $12 a pop. You can get delicious, more intricate cocktails and other places for less money. And you’ll get larger pours!
