Ma po silken tofu – Mister Jiu’s

Ma po silken tofu - Mister Jiu's
With ground pork, chilies, green onion. $16
Mister Jiu’s, San Francisco CA

I think Mission Chinese Food got me into loving mapo tofu because have such a spicy and flavorful version. This version at Mister Jiu’s wasn’t nearly as spicy, but it was flavorful in its own right. I love the fine texture of the dish, and it tasted great over rice.

Buttermilk fried chicken – Harvey’s

Buttermilk fried chicken - Harvey's
Deep fried boneless chicken breasts, cole slaw, mashed potatoes, and country gravy. $13.95
Harvey’s, San Francisco CA

I actually thought that this was good (which is surprising because I’m not a fan of Harvey’s). The chicken was moist, tasty, and not greasy. And the mashed potatoes were good. I thought the coleslaw was just mediocre, but I was surprised that I liked everything else quite a lot!
