Turkish bread – Tuba Restaurant and Grill

Turkish bread - Tuba Restaurant and Grill
Served with flavored butter, olives, and crumbly cheese (feta?). Complimentary.
Tuba Restaurant and Grill, San Francisco CA

As complimentary bread goes, these were frickin’ amazing! I don’t think I’ve really had Turkish bread before (that I can remember), and it was really good! The bread is flavorful enough on its own but I love the extras that it comes with too.

Falafel platter – Cafe Flore

Falafel platter - Cafe Flore
3 falafel balls, hummus, cucumber raiti, cous cous, mixed green salad with feta and sherry vinaigrette, and warm whole wheat pita bread. $9.95
Cafe Flore, San Francisco

I love platters because you get to try many things – perhaps it’s the non-committal part of me. This was ok, flavorful, but the falafel was a little dry and I wasn’t a fan of the whole wheat pita. They were too dense for my taste. The hummus, raita, and cous cous were my favorite parts.

The Little Star – Little Star Pizza

The Little Star Pizza

Spinach blended with ricotta and feta, mushroom, onion and garlic on a deep dish cornmeal crust.  $24 for large 12″
Little Star Pizza, San Francisco

This is my first Little Star Pizza blog entry, but I’ve been eating at this place and ordering pick-ups for a while!  I love their pizzas!  They are still my favorite deep dish pizza in The City.  I love their thick, buttery cornmeal crust.  YUM!  All their toppings always taste fresh and flavorful, and I enjoy their chunky tomato sauce.  I’m not a big eater so one slice is usually enough for a meal, they’re kinda large.

I cheated and added anchovies to half the pizza. That’s the Filipino in me, lol!
