Breakfast nacho skillet – Harvey’s

Buffalo chicken wings - Harvey's
Home fires topped with cheddar and jack cheese, bacon, ham, two eggs over easy, green onions, and side of salsa. $8.95
Harvey’s, San Francisco CA

I was dragged to Harvey’s by a friend again even though they know I really don’t like the food. This was ok, but not at all refined. Very basic…

Meat gyro platter – Lazeez

Meat gyro platter - Lazeez
Lamb and beef with lettuce, tomato, red onion, tzatziki sauce, Greek pita. $13.50
Lazeez, San Francisco CA

The gyro meat tasted good, but it was really greasy. I like tender meat, but not necessarily glistening with fatty grease. They do give you plenty of it though. I would have appreciated more tzatziki for that amount of food.

Butternut squash soup – Volt

Butternut squash soup - Volt
Roasted squash, curry spiced granola, toasted coconut, bacon lardons. Tasting menu $95
Volt, Frederick MD

This super was very tasty and I think the curried granola really made it special. It added a unique flavor and need texture to the velvety soup. I will admit that the curry flavor began to dominate everything else towards the end. A very good soup overall.

Spaghetti in puttanesca sauce – Tordomatto

Spaghetti in puttanesca sauce - Tordomatto
Dried herbs. “Tradition” tasting menu €65
Tordomatto, Rome ITALY

There was just a single swirl of this spaghetti on the plate, but it was a satisfying one! The noodles were more al dente that I’m used to but it worked to hold up to the intense flavor of the sauce and the fine dried herbs on top. It was spaghetti like I’ve never tasted before!
