Mussels and chorizo – Hecho

Mussels and chorizo - Hecho
Roasted tomatoes, padron peppers, beer, garlic telera bread. $18
Hecho, San Francisco CA

Meh, I thought this would be great but the broth was too bitter! The bread was also soft and quickly became super soggy. There wasn’t many mussels either so it wasn’t very substantial.

Duck mole: duck confit, dried cherry mole, queso fresco, corn tortilla. Beer battered fish: fresh cod, cabbage, smoke jalapeno crema, flour tortilla. Al pastor: roasted pork, grilled pineapple, corn tortilla. 3 for $17

These tacos were really tasty. I enjoyed the individual flavors and ingredients for each one. I will say that I thought some of the tortillas were a bit dry though.

Project 365: Day 70

This has been a horrible day so far! Our red-eye flight out of SFO was delayed last night because of the rain so we would have missed our IAD connection to San Juan. We were able to get on an earlier flight out of SFO and made our connection, but our bags didn’t make it. The baggage claim guy at the SJU airport was SO lame and annoying. So now we probably won’t have clothes to change into until tomorrow.

We’ve also had a horrible dining experience in San Juan already. Our cab driver suggested Raices Restaurant near our hotel to have lunch and it was absolutely horrible. This place was a cheesy tourist trap if I’ve ever seen one! The food was disgusting and the over priced drinks were weak and gross tasting. I hope the dining improves during our stay!

Despite all that, San Juan is beautiful and the weather has been great!

1 skewer of grilled peppers with radish garnish. $4
Hecho, San Francisco

This was another disappointment. The peppers were barely grilled and weren’t very warm.

Soft shell crab roll – Hecho

Project 365: Day 68

Work is going by SO slowly! I still haven’t packed anything for my trip yet but I have finished all my laundry so choosing outfits should be relatively easy. I also need to make sure that all my bills are paid so I don’t miss any payments while I’m gone. Ho hum.

Soft shell crab roll Hecho

Deep fried soft shell crab and avocado. $9
Hecho, San Francisco

I loved how large this roll was, but on the other hand there was only 6 pieces. You can’t go wrong with soft shell crab though!

Project 365: Day 67

I had to work half a day this morning and the anticipation for my Caribbean vacation is hitting me hard! After my French Laundry meal last night (I’ll try to get those uploaded asap), I’m not feeling so hot in the body image department. Oh well, not much I can do now. I’m hitting the gym this evening and probably tomorrow night as a final attempt to tone up. Lol!

Spicy tuna with albacore and pico de gallo. $16
Hecho, San Francisco

I enjoyed this roll. The fresh salsa on top was a nice surprise. Kind of expensive though.

Walu nigiri – Hecho

Project 365: Day 66

This is the day I went to French Laundry in Yountville. It was an 8:45 dinner reservation so I drove all the way up and had to drive back to the city afterward because I had to work the next morning. My friend has a Per Se connection so we received spectacular service and extra food, heck yeah! We were in and out of the restaurant in 5 hours! Previously, my longest dinner was 4 hours at Mistral Kitchen in Seattle. Dinner was amazing and I can’t wait to go back!

Walu nigiri Hecho

Hawaiian butterfish. $6
Hecho, San Francisco

This was definitely a buttery fish, SO good! I have to say that overall, Hecho is a bit overpriced though.

Edamame Hecho

Edamame, boiled soy beans. $5

Margaritas – Hecho

Project 365: Day 65

So I’ve recently returned from an 11-day trip to Puerto Rico/cruise to the southern Caribbean. I gladly didn’t have internet during the trip, but now I’m completely slammed with a huge backlog of posts that I need to complete. I also couldn’t post anything for Project 365 so this is what I’m gonna do from now on. I won’t be posting a pic from that particular day for my Project 365 posts, but I will continue to use these posts as journal/daily entries. I’ll try to catch up on all my posts, but please be patient.  🙂

7 spice margarita Hecho

7 spice margarita – Don Julio Blanco tequila, cucumber, agave, lime juice, togarashi spice. $12
Hecho, San Francisco

I loved this margarita! It was nice and spicy and so flavorful!

Hecho margarita

Hecho margarita – Partida Reposado tequila, fresh lime and agave nectar. $10
This margarita was a bit boring compared to the 7 spice margarita. There also wasn’t very much tequila so it lacked any kind of punch.

Water Hecho

Cute water glasses.
