California roll topped with spicy tuna, tobiko, unagi sauce. Pre fixe dinner Barracuda Sushi, San Francisco CA
This roll wasn’t very creative with its standard components, but I liked the flavors nonetheless. It’s not very authentic, but spicy tuna is always a safe bet (especially is if there’s any doubt in the freshness of the fish, not that Barracuda uses bad fish).
Crab meat, mango, avocado, gobo (burdock) covered with lightly torched, thinly sliced kobe beef, seasoned with sesame oil and green onions. $12.95 Barracuda Sushi, San Francisco CA
This rolls sounds amazing and it was actually very tasty, but I think that there was WAY too many things packed inside. I really couldn’t taste many of the ingredients individually and forgot that some of them were even in there. The beef was the dominant flavor and it was a little on the salty side. The roll was good but I probably wouldn’t order it again.
Reward Roll: deep fried shrimp, soft shell crab, cucumber, crab roll topped with salmon and avocado with tobiko and unagi sauce. $12.95
Red Dragon: Unagi tempura and cucumber roll topped with spicy tuna, tomato, jalapeno, spicy miso sauce and tobiko-garlic chips. $14.95 Barracuda Sushi, San Francisco CA
The rolls at Barracuda are always pretty tasty and large, but you’d expect that at this above-average price point. I do like that they offer plenty of fried (tempura) roll options for my fat-craving self, lol! Their flavor combinations are also inventive and varied.
Two corn tortillas filled with beef, covered with a mild red chile sauce and cheese. Topped with guacamole and sour cream. Served with Spanish rice, refried beans, and tortilla soup. $12.95 Casa Azteca, Milpitas CA
This was a great value for only thirteen bucks and everything was pretty good, but all the textures on the enchilada plate were soft. I didn’t mind too much but I wish they would have thrown in something crunchy to balance things out. I think that’s why other places thrown in a small pile of that cheap iceberg lettuce “salad”. You all know what I’m talking about. The tortilla soup was also on the salty side.
Grilled sweet yellow corn pocket stuffed with slow cooked pulled pork, avocado, tomato, pica’pun, ajo aioli. Served with Pica slaw and taro chips. $10.75 Pica Pica, San Francisco CA
This was really tasty and very filling. The texture of the grilled corn arepa was fantastic and I liked that there were whole kernels mixed in too. The pulled pork was flavorful, and the crisp fresh Pica slaw was a great accompaniment.
Sangria. Red wine, passion fruit, apple, and Adriana’s special spices. Glass $7
This is how people decorate their trees in Noe Vally, lol! Ok, maybe just this house.
Beer batter fish in soft corn tortillas with cilantro, cabbage, red onions, roasted tomato and lime salsa. Nick’s way made with a grilled crispy corn tortilla wrapped in a soft tortilla with Monterey jack cheese, pinto beans, pico de gallo and guacamole. $5.50 The Taco Shop at Underdogs, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this really is a great taco! The fish is delicious and perfectly fried, not greasy at all, and really flavorful. And if you order the taco “Nick’s way”, you get at lot more flavors and textures to an already killer taco. Noms!

House-made tortilla chips, pulled pork, pepper jack and cheddar, avocado, black beans and pickled jalapenos. $14 Hi Tops, San Francisco CA
(Original post picture, kinda dark so had to replace it. This version had turkey chili instead of pulled pork.)
Omg, when this came out I was in shock! It was literally an entire cookie sheet of nachos! It was pretty good and really filling especially with the turkey chili. I’m not sure I’d order this again unless I had a small group of friends to share it with. There were 3 of us that night and we could not finish! 🙂
