Porkivore – Sushirrito

Porkivore - Sushirrito
Oven-roasted pork belly, shaved cabbage, red radish, avocado, cilantro, mustard seed mayo. $9.50
Sushirrito, San Francisco CA

These sushi burritos are super popular during lunchtime in the Financial District/SoMa. I think they’re delicious but it’s also a lot of rice and I’m trying to cut back on carbs (I need to maintain my trim figure, lol). I’ve tried several varieties now and I liked this Porkivore. The pork belly was delicious and the mustard seed mayo was a good sauce accompaniment especially with added hot sauce. Noms!

Crab and tomato noodle soup – Soup Junkie

Crab and tomato noodle soup - Soup Junkie
Bun rieu. Signature noodle soup topped with crab omelette, curled cabbage, housemade pork meatballs, tomatoes, fresh herbs, and silky rice noodles. $9.50
Soup Junkie, San Francisco CA

This soup was really tasty and surprisingly light even with all the different toppings. The crab omelette was a winner and really took me back to childhood when we would makes these for days after a crabbing outing. The pork meatballs were also very good and added another dimension to the delicious soup.

Radio Africa & Kitchen, San Francisco CA

Mmm, I love warm, cheesy, herby spreads. And this one also had smoked trout it in, score! This was really good and comforting food, and the red cabbage and apple salad was a great accompaniment to cut through the richness of the spread.

Beef shawarma – Leylam Shawarma

Beef shawarma - Leylam Shawarma
With cabbage, cucumber, hummus and tahini sauce wrapped in lavash bread. 59 PHP
Leylam Shawarma, Boracay PHILIPPINES

I don’t remember too much about this shawarma – just that I was starving after our first night out in Boracay, lol! It was cheap, quick, and on the way back to the hotel. Looking back at the pic, I guess it wasn’t very big. Maybe that’s why I had a hangover in the morning. 😉

Pork and shrimp stir fried rice vermicelli - Nha Hang Ngon
Bun gao xao tom thit. With carrots, cabbage, onion, green onion, cilantro. 120,000 VND
Nha Hang Ngon, Ho Chi Minh City VIETNAM

This was pretty good and I liked the slightly al dente texture of the vermicelli noodles. The pork was ok, but the shrimp were really tasty. Overall, it was good but I probably wouldn’t order it again.
