Corned beef burger – The Perennial

Corned beef burger - The Perennial
Cheese, aioli, caramelized onions, pickles. $10
The Perennial, San Francisco CA

This burger was decent, but it was more on the size of a slider! I still can’t forget the horrible bar service that ruined my visit. Never returning to this horrible restaurant!

Ham hock and potato croquettes – The Perennial

Ham hock and potato croquettes - The Perennial
Shallot aioli. $7
The Perennial, San Francisco CA

These were ok, but the service at the bar was really shitty! I don’t think I will ever come back to this place or even recommend it because the service was THAT bad. #fail

Marinated mussels – Wine Kitchen

Marinated mussels - Wine Kitchen
Fingerling potato, celery, saffron broth, frites, aioli. $11
Wine Kitchen, San Francisco CA

Mmm, I really liked this dish. The mussels were a bit sour and tart from the marinade, but I thought it worked well with the saffron broth and aioli. The components seemed a bit odd to me at first, but they all tasted great together.

Pork filled empanada with aioli and sweet chili sauce. Happy hour $2
La Isla Cuisine, Seattle WA

Two bucks for a warm empanada?! I’m in! We went here during a late night bar crawl and took advantage of their super cheap happy hour menu, lol. This empanada may have been small, but it was cooked to order and tasted mighty good!

Chili calamari – Sky Deck View Bar

Chili calamari - Sky Deck View Bar
Crispy egg battered squid, chili, aioli, lime wedge, cilantro. 310 PHP
Sky Deck View Bar, Manila PHILIPPINES

Mmm, these calamari were done right! They weren’t dry and over-fried and chewy. They were still tender and packed with flavor, a little heat and some sweetness. A nice early evening snack to kick off the night.
