Brocamole, burrata, pink lady vinegar. Family style menu, $60 per person
Al’s Place, San Francisco CA
Meh, I don’t know if I really enjoyed this. I liked the individual components, but they just didn’t all come together to make a deliciously harmonious plate. And again with the side-plating, ugh!
Adante Dairy, Petaluma. Served with blackberry honeycomb and walnut currant baguette. $11
Farmshop, Larkspur CA
This cheese was pretty tasty, but I think that the blackberry honey was my favorite part. It was SO flavorful and tastes great with the cheese and bread.
Admiral: Templeton rye, ginger shrub, lemon, barrel aged bitters, honey.
Lima style fried calamari, shrimp, scallop and fish, yuca, cancha, huacatay tartar sauce. $15
Fresca, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this was great! I loved the breading of the fried seafood, and everything was still tender and juicy. I’ll definitely order this again in the future.
Fudgy yolk, lettuces, peas, spring onion. Tasting menu $155
Lazy Bear, San Francisco CA
Mmm, another delicious and beautifully plated dish! This was SO creative and I could never have imagine this combination of ingredients, but it was truly lovely.
Mama Ji’s, San Francisco CA
I will never dine in at this restaurant ever again! The wait for your food is excruciatingly long especially when you’re constantly seeing a parade of take-out and delivery orders leave through the door. You’re left starving and frustrated so you really can’t enjoy your food.
Sauteed eggplant, bell pepper, bean sauce and fresh basil. $12
Thai House Express, San Francisco CA
This was decent. Surprisingly, it was on the bland side, but I thought that the chicken breast slices were nice and tender. I would have liked some heat or at least more flavor though.
Snails on potato canapes, porcini, garlic butter sauce. $14
Le Zinc, San Francisco CA
This was delicious. I liked how they served the escargots atop the potato medallions. I just wish there was enough potatoes for all of the snails. They had a large pile of escargots on one side that was a bit too rich to eat without the starchy potatoes.
