Crispy puff pastry, spicy pork sausage, caramelized onions, broccoli rabe, and bagna cauda vinaigrette. $14
Park Tavern, San Francisco CA
Do I need to reiterate my love for burrata? Lol. Mmm, this was so good! I sometimes wish that I could afford a personal chef who would make me beautiful snacks like this all day long. 🙂
Winecup clarkia (Clarkia purpurea, Onagraceae), Bon Tempe Lake.
Served with warm baby leeks and truffle vinaigrette, broccoli rabe, pork stuffing, and pork jus.
Incanto, San Francisco CA
I’m back! OK, I know I’ve been MIA and I apologize. Life has been hectic and I haven’t been able to adjust as quickly as I wanted to.
Anyway, it took the closing of Incanto to get me to blog today. Over the weekend, we celebrated a friend’s bday with the FINAL whole roasted pig dinner ever to be served at Incanto. It was a wonderful dinner and the food was delicious.
They brought out the whole roasted pork and it looked beautiful! I thought the gold leafed snout was a nice touch.
Our server carved the pig tableside. I was surprised that the body had actually been deboned prior to cooking so only skin and meat remained.
The meat was SO tasty, especially smothered in the pork jus.
I made sure to go back for plenty of the crispy skin.
The sides were also very good. The baby leeks were beautifully presented.
The broccoli rabe had a nice bitterness to them.

Harissa sausage, yellow eye beans, broccoli rabe, preserved lemon jus. $22
The Alembic, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this was such a hearty dish and it tasted delicious! The harissa sausage was my favorite component, but the lamb was also very tender and juicy. I appreciated the cute Nasturtium leaves too, hehe!
Crescenza is one of my absolute favorite cheeses! This place always has great bruschette combos so it’s a no-brainer to order a plate. $6
Beretta, San Francisco CA
Seal Rocks off Ocean Beach.
With smoked cheese and tomatoes. $14
Uva Enoteca, San Francisco
I wasn’t a huge fan of this pizza. I enjoyed the flavors but the whole thing was heavy and clunky. The crust had an odd, dense texture which was surprising since it was thin. It’s all about the crust, right?! The pizza was also on the small side. Don’t think I’ll be ordering pizzas from Uva Enoteca again.
This looks better than it tasted.
Marzemino, Terre Gioia, Trentino, 2009. $10 for 8oz
Merlot, Chopris, Friuli, 2004. $9 for 8oz
They have a nice selection! These are sold by 2oz or 8oz. I like that the 8oz is served in a small, cute carafe.
Flatbread with broccoli rabe, Txistorra sausage, caramelized onions and manchego cheese. $14
Contigo, San Francisco
This was some amazing flatbread! The Txistorra sausage tasted so good and had a great smokiness to it. I loved the heartiness of the broccoli rabe and manchego cheese. Everything just worked so well together and it was very filling. Yum!
