Celery-Fiji apple slaw, mayo, pickle, bun. $8
The Bird, San Francisco CA
Oh lord, why does this sandwich have to be SO good?! I think I’ve had this fried chicken sandwich way too many times to be good for my figure, hehe. I will say that you need their homemade sriracha to with every bite to make it perfect.
Batterave and sorel. “Tradition” tasting menu €65
Tordomatto, Rome ITALY
I loved how they made the vegetable (beet?) look like a hollow bone with marrow. The veal was tender and delicious. I only wish that it had a little sear on it for more texture.
Penne pasta with tomato, oil, garlic, chili pepper. €10
La Biga, Rome ITALY
This tasted fine, but I still couldn’t get over the yellow light! It just made all the food look SO unappetizing! Our server was really nice and friendly though and the experience was great overall (minus the light, lol).
Beef cheesesteak with fried onions, Cheese Whiz, and peppers. 7 inch $8.75
Phat Philly, San Francisco CA
These gut bombs at Phat Philly are my guilty pleasures. They taste great and I love that you can add peppers from their pepper bar. The Cheese Whiz definitely adds another level of amazing (and guilt), lol!
Veal shank served with sweet and sour silver-skin onions. €20
Trattoria Sora Lella, Rome ITALY
Oh lordy, this was delicious! The veal was so tender and I liked that it wasn’t in a regular tomato or red wine sauce. This sauce was so flavorful and really complemented the veal. NOMS!
Bleu cheese dipping sauce. $10
Escena Lounge & Grill, Palm Springs CA
These were pretty good! I liked the saucy glaze, and bleu cheese is always preferable over ranch for me! Hehe!
Rum-soaked dessert. €6.50
Napoletano’s Pantheon, Rome ITALY
This was definitely rum-y, but I really liked it! The rum flavor wasn’t too over-powering, and I liked the texture of the pastry and the cream wasn’t too heavy.
