Shrimp and grits – Joule

Shrimp and grits - Joule
Chinese sausage, greens, ginger, brown butter.
Joule, San Francisco CA

Noms, I really liked this dish! But then I’m a huge shrimp and grits fan anyway. This was different from any I’ve had previously though because of the non-traditional ingredients like the Chinese sausage and purple greens. SO good!

Buckwheat pancakes – Joule

Buckwheat pancakes - Joule
Rhubarb chutney, walnut, whipped cream.
Joule, San Francisco CA

I liked the combination of slightly savory and sweet in this dish, and the texture of the buckwheat pancakes was great. I would say that was a pretty successful plate!

Joule bloody mary – Joule

Joule bloody mary - Joule

Potato vodka, house made mary mix, pork belly, sesame salt. $9
Joule, San Francisco CA

This place was super cute and the service was friendly although we had a large party so our waiter was a little scarce once we got our food. My bloody mary was tasty, but the pork belly description was a bit misleading and the cocktail was fairly small.
