The Old Clam House, San Francisco CA

OMG, this was SO much food! This was pretty much a small pail of cioppino for only two people, and it was SO delicious! I liked that the sauce was on the spicy side. Most cioppinos are kinda bland these days. This cioppino was also packed with seafood. This was definitely worth it, and I would go back for this dish. Noms!

Beer battered fish and chips – Gordon Biersch

Beer battered fish and chips - Gordon Biersch
Breaded with panko crumbs, served with malt vinegar, tartar sauce, and signature garlic fries. $17.99
Gordon Biersch, San Francisco International Airport (SFO)

This plate was absolutely disgusting! The fist was so thickly battered (where was the panko breading btw?) and super greasy! I couldn’t even eat it. Even the fries, which were definitely cooked in the same horrible oil were hard and just tasted of grease. I want to barf just thinking of this atrocity!!

Rockfish – Volt

Rockfish - Volt
Kohlrabi, szechuan lemon oil, dill. Tasting menu $95
Volt, Frederick MD

Mmm, this was delicious! And it wasn’t even on the tasting menu – they just brought it out as an extra. Not that I needed more food, I was getting pretty full at this point in the meal. I’m glad I tried this though. The rockfish was cooked beautifully, but I particularly liked the kohlrabi puree.
