Pepperoni pizza – Pizza Politana

Pepperoni pizza - Pizza Politana
Tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella. $10

This pizza was much better than the last time I tried Pizza Politana. The crust wasn’t oily this time and the edges weren’t as charred and burned. I thought this tasted great!

Boneless chicken marinated in yoghurt with fresh ginger, garlic and homemade spices and finished with butter. Served with vegetable dumplings and yellow basmati rice. $10

I was looking for something different for lunch, so I decided to give Nepalese food a try. this was very good and different. The sauce on the gurkha chicken was delicious and I loved the firm texture of the MoMo dumplings.

Porchetta sandwich – Roli Roti

Porchetta sandwich - Roli Roti
Slow rotisserie roasted pork with house made onion marmalade, fresh arugula, herbed sea salt and served on an Acme Bakery roll. $9.50
Roli Roti Gourmet Rotisserie, San Francisco CA

This sandwich is as good as ever. The porchetta seems to be even fattier these days (which I’m not gonna complain about) and just packed with flavor. I love this as a special treat every once in a while.

Pork sisig nachos – Senor Sisig

Pork sisig nachos - Senor Sisig
Corn tortilla chips topped with nacho cheese, sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo, and pickled jalapenos. $9
Senor Sisig, SF Street Food Festival 2013, San Francisco CA

This time I asked for “light” nacho cheese, and it was SO much better. I usually like plenty of nacho cheese but there are so many other flavors in these nachos that you really don’t need a lot of the cheese to dominate everything. Definitely as calorie splurge for lunch.
