Seasonal veggies, andouille sausage, pepper jack cheese, potatoes, mixed greens. $12 Balancoire, San Francisco CA
I don’t know how this place is as a club, but as a restaurant it SUCKED! Yelp, you failed me on this one. The food was below marginal and the service was cringingly awkward. These scrambled eggs were super runny and overly cheesy. The potatoes were barely cooked and I think the salad had cheap bottled salad dressing on it. I did like the andouille sausage but even they were inconsistently charred and cooked. Boo!
Omg, these were literally jockey pucks. I’m not sure why they even bothered serving them because they felt and tasted like they were over a week old!
With andouille sausage and braised tomatoes. $17 The Glass Onion, Charleston SC
This dish was pretty good with great flavor. I loved the texture of the grits, but the shrimp may have been a little overcooked. Not too much, but they were definitely not as tender as I would have liked. Also, I did want to mention that the service was a bit awkward.
Cornbread drizzled with honey. These were delicious and I wish I had requested another round!
Lobby of the Doubletree Guest Suites Charleston-Historic District. Sat here several times waiting for my friend to get ready before heading out to dinner, hehe!
Andouille sausage, gulf shrimp, chicken, holy-trinity (onion, carrots and celery), okra and dark roux, served with Louisiana long grain rice. $11.90 Criolla Kitchen, San Francisco
This dish was just ok. It lacked the depth of flavor that I look for in a delicious gumbo, and there could also have been more of the proteins present. It was more soupy than gumbo. You definitely get a lot of it though, and the price is very reasonable.
