Tlaloc nachos with chicken chorizo - Tlaloc Sabor Mexicano
Jack cheese, pinto beans, guacamole, sour cream, salsa fresco, jalapenos. $12.25
Tlaloc Sabor Mexicano, San Francisco CA

These nachos were ok for the price. Maybe I just didn’t like the chicken chorizo all that much. I thought that there could be more flavor. I’m glad that they have a decent salsa bar.

Cavatelli with chorizo ragu – Barzotto

Cavatelli with chorizo ragu - Barzotto
Squash, kale. $15
Barzotto, San Francisco CA

I usually love all the pasta here, but this wasn’t my favorite. It tasted really good, but maybe I just wasn’t in the mood for the kale and squash. I should have stuck with a cheesy, meaty pasta. This was still very flavorful though.

Chicken and chorizo paella – Cozina

Chicken and chorizo paella - Cozina
Half order 600 PHP
Cozina, Boracay PHILIPPINES

I wasn’t too impressed with this paella. I think they precook it and then reheat ordered portions in the paella pan because there wasn’t a delicious, crusty layer of rice on the bottom that you get from cooking the paella in the pan the entire time. The flavors were ok, but I thought the quality was mediocre.

Gambas – Epic

Gambas - Epic
Tiger prawns cooked in olive oil, garlic, chorizo and white wine. 480 PHP
Epic, Boracay PHILIPPINES

Wow, this was our first meal in Boracay and it was an awesome choice! These gambas were delicious and super tender. I loved the chorizo sauce and dumped most of my garlic rice in there to soak it all up. I also like the flatware and presentation. Welcome to Boracay!

Crispy duck leg cassoulet – Town Hall

Crispy duck leg cassoulet - Town Hall
Butter beans, chorizo, farm egg, Italian parsley, grilled bread. $25
Town Hall, San Francisco CA

Oops, I guess you really can’t see the duck, but I swear it’s in there under the farm egg. This dish had good flavors, but it was salty. I think the presence of duck confit and chorizo really upped the saltiness from the start, but I swear they must have added even MORE salt because there was too much! At twenty five bucks for this bowl, I think the execution could have been better.
