Lamb burger banh mi – Belcampo Meat Co.

Lamb burger banh mi - Belcampo Meat Co.
Ground lamb shoulder and belly, pickled carrots, daikon, jalapeno, cucumber, cilantro, sriracha mayo, fries. $17
Belcampo Meat Co., Larkspur CA

The kitchen was kind enough to split the order between two plates, and we didn’t even ask. That was cool! The burger was very tasty. I loved the lamb flavor and the patty was juicy and tender. I also liked the Vietnamese flavors. What I didn’t like was the weird ketchup. It was super sweet and kinda ruined the perfectly delicious fries.

Trout tostadas – Cala

Trout tostadas - Cala
With chipotle, avocado, and fried leeks. $16
Cala, San Francisco CA

These were pretty tasty, and I thought that the fried leeks were a great component. I thought that the texture of the trout was verging on the slimy side, but that didn’t stop me from devouring these little bites!

Assorted tacos – The Castro Republic

Assorted tacos - The Castro Republic
Heritage carnitas, adobo chicken, and beer-marinated steak. On organic corn tortilla, onion, cilantro relish, lime, and roasted tomatillo salsa. Taco Wednesday, each $2
The Castro Republic, San Francisco CA

These definitely hit the spot on a random Wednesday night. And I’m totally down with the two dollar price tag. While most places observe Taco Tuesday, they do Taco Wednesday at The Castro Republic!

El de la foto - Los Schucos Latin Hot Dogs
Bacon-wrapped all-beef frank, Guatemalan chimichurri sauce, repollo, avocado, and mayo maya. $7.95
Los Schucos Latin Hot Dogs, San Francisco CA

This was sinfully good, but I will say that the bacon-wrapped frank wasn’t as good as the ones you get from a street cart. This was definitely fancier, but it lacked the crispiness, texture, and flavor that I was expecting.
