Sauteed chicken, turkey and potato hash atop arugula with sunny-side-up egg, wheat toast, yogurt, za’atar, syrup, homemade lemon olive oil dressing. Aroma Espresso Bar, Toronto CANADA
This looked dry, gray, and boring and that’s exactly how it tasted. There wasn’t much going for this plate except that it was healthy. I’ve rather have tasty and flavorful over bland and healthy any day.
With arugula and spiced red walnuts. Mushroom wot with mustard greens and smoked cheese. Pre fixe menu Radio Africa & Kitchen, San Francisco CA
I love roasted beets and this salad had a awesome combination of flavors and textures. It was super refreshing and delicious. I’ve never had Ethiopian wot before, but this mushroom wot reminded me of an Italian crostini. It tasted great!
Classic angus beef tartare, capers and crispy bone marrow, arugula. $15 Park Tavern, San Francisco CA
Surprisingly, I don’t remember this dish very well. It really wasn’t too memorable or maybe I got overwhelmed with venison carpaccio AND beef tartare on the same plate. I DO remember that the crispy bone marrow were amazing!
Grilled hanger steak, two fried eggs, pickled red onion, garlic aioli, wild arugula, chimichurri, toasted pain de mie, crispy skinny fries, and fruit. $13 Stock in Trade, San Francisco CA
This burger had a lot of great flavors, but it was super cold – EW! I think the server must have forgotten it on the counter for a long time before bringing it out. I was surprised that the skinny French fries stayed crispy and delicious though. I can only imagine how much better they would have been served warm. Kind lame, Stock in Trade!
