Charcuterie board – Hamlet

Charcuterie board - Hamlet
Smoked duck prosciutto, salami, pork terrine. $15
Hamlet, San Francisco CA

This charcuterie plate was lovely. I liked that they included duck which isn’t standard for charcuterie boards. I also liked the thinness of the slices. The condiments and hazelnuts were also great accompaniments. Mmm…

Charcuterie board – Lark

Charcuterie board - Lark
Selection of prepared meats, jam, nuts and fruit. $18
Lark, San Francisco CA

This was a decent charcuterie board. The salumi weren’t anything different or special, but they tasted good enough and they at least provided four different kinds. They should have served more toasted baguette slices though.

Came here with some friends and had to suggest that they try this charcuterie plate. I loved it the first time I had it, and they really enjoyed it too. Perbacco certainly knows how to make delicious salumi!

This charcuterie and cheese board was wonderful and worked great with their wines at Opolo. It was very relaxing to sit on their patio and sip wine and have a midday snack.

Blue cheese sauce, pancetta, shishito pepper, potato, parmesan. Happy hour $9

Mmm, this flatbread was delicious! I’m not totally sold on the addition of the shishito peppers though – they didn’t quite fit to me. The blue cheese sauce was yummy though and the other toppings worked well together.

This wasn’t the fanciest charcuterie board I’ve ever had, but it was certainly delicious. And at ten bucks, it was a fantastic value. I loved the brillat savarin (one of my favorite cheeses) and the grilled bread and other accompaniments were yummy.
