Beef casserole – Air New Zealand

Beef casserole - Air New Zealand
Green beans, potatoes, couscous, roll, cheese and crackers, berry dessert, red wine. Complimentary
San Francisco (SFO) to Auckland (AKL), Air New Zealand

This was ok. There was certainly a lot of food though (they really want you to fall asleep from a food coma). The beef casserole was decent, the potatoes were sad, I didn’t really like the couscous or dessert, but they were liberal with the wine so I was cool. 🙂


Bibimbap with beef – The Store on the Corner

Bibimbap with beef - The Store on the Corner
Fried egg, vegetables, chili paste over with rice. $10.20
The Store on the Corner, San Francisco CA

This bibimbap was good. I liked all the veggies, but the beef was a bit dry. I’m glad the runny egg was there to add some needed moisture.

Pork ribs and brisket combination – Charles Vergos’ Rendezvous

Pork ribs and brisket combination - Charles Vergos' Rendezvous
World-famous Rendezvous charcoal-broiled pork ribs, beef brisket, served with beans and slaw. $21.95
Charles Vergos’ Rendezvous, Memphis TN

Omg, I think these were my favorite ribs in Memphis. I know that they’re not Memphis style, but they were the most flavorful and juicy of all the ribs I tried. The rub that they use is frickin’ delicious! It was very herbaceous and had so many spices. NOMS! The brisket was good too, but the ribs were the star. I liked the baked beans, but the slaw was too vinegar-y for my taste.

Hot curry udon – Muracci’s Japanese Curry & Grill

Hot curry udon - Muracci's Japanese Curry & Grill
Sliced angus beef, onion, green onion, udon, Muracci’s curry soup. $11.95
Muracci’s Japanese Curry & Grill, San Francisco CA

This was on the heavy side, but it was pretty tasty. I wish there was more udon noodles in there though, but I was glad that there was a good amount of sliced beef. Yum!
