Corned beef burger – The Perennial

Corned beef burger - The Perennial
Cheese, aioli, caramelized onions, pickles. $10
The Perennial, San Francisco CA

This burger was decent, but it was more on the size of a slider! I still can’t forget the horrible bar service that ruined my visit. Never returning to this horrible restaurant!

Bacon, egg and cheese biscuit – Krystal

Bacon, egg and cheese biscuit - Krystal
Served with tater tots.
Krystal, Memphis TN

Ugh, this wasn’t very good at all. The biscuit was dry and the eggs were hard and tasteless. Hmm, I was starving so I forced this breakfast sandwich down.

Stracciatella – Rolf and Daughters

Stracciatella - Rolf and Daughters
Zephyr squash, sunflower, aleppo, mint. $14
Rolf and Daughters, Nashville TN

This was tasty, but I wish I could have at least seen the stracciatella without all the stuff on top covering it up. It was weird to have the main ingredient away from view.

Peat Rose cocktail - Rolf and Daughters
Peat Rose cocktail. Rittenhouse rye, apple, lemon, grenadine, Laphroaig. $11

7 item tasting plate – Tasca Tasca

7 item tasting plate - Tasca Tasca

Tasca Tasca, Sonoma CA

This was a great Portuguese restaurant in Sonoma especially since there aren’t a lot of Portuguese restaurants out there! I loved all the different options they had on their menu and I thought that everything we ordered was really tasty. Noms!

Cheese and charcuterie – Villa San-Juliette

Cheese and charcuterie - Villa San-Juliette
Assortment of cheeses and select cured meats accompanied by vegetables, nuts and dried fruit. Served with bread. $15
Villa San-Juliette, San Miguel CA

This was a straight forward meat and cheese plate, but everything on it was pretty tasty. I would have appreciated more variety in the meats to balance out the kinds of cheeses.
