Cheddar-jack cheeses, bacon, red onions, chipotle ranch. $9.99
Lynchburg Legends Bar & Grill, Memphis TN
Hmm, this was really greasy but I liked the flavors enough. What I didn’t like was how SLOW the kitchen was. Other tables around us actually left because they had been waiting for their food way to long. The place wasn’t even busy. 😦
With caramelized onions, brie, Granny Smith apple, fresh thyme and mixed greens. Happy hour $11
Yield Wine Bar, San Francisco CA
Wow, I loved all the flavors and ingredients on this flatbread pizza, but it was WAY too soggy and difficult to eat. Between the caramelized onions, melted brie, super thin crust and overload toppings, the slices seemed to dissolve and was impossible to pick up or eat with your hands. I’m a fan of thin crusts (less carbs), but it has to be balanced with the right amount of toppings. And I guess the mixed greens never made the plate! This didn’t quite work for me. I did love the space and our server was really great and friendly though.

Flatbread filled with beef, cheese, tomato, pickle. Complimentary
L’Arganier, Paris FR
We had sat down outside this restaurant for a quick drink break from walking around. After we had ordered our drinks, the waitress brought us this plate of roll ups which we weren’t expecting. We really liked her and thought that this was cute. We noticed that we were the only table to get the complimentary snacks in our area and we really weren’t sure why. It’s times like this when it would’ve been great to know French. 🙂
L’Hotel national des Invalides (Les Invalides). This huge complex is pretty impressive, but the Hardouin Mansart chapel dome is certainly the centerpiece.
House-made pickled onion, sofrito, and farmer’s sheep cheese. $16
Canela, San Francisco CA
This was SO good! The crumbled chorizo had so much flavor, and the sheep cheese and pickled onions were perfect counterpoinst. The coca was crispy and buttery around the edges and perfectly baked. NOMS!
Pier remnants at Fort Funston.
Flatbread with smoked bacon, melted leeks, manchego and housemade mato cheese. $15
Contigo, San Francisco CA
I love the cocas at Contigo. The flatbread always has a great texture and is so flavorful. This wild nettle coca was a new one for me, and it was SO tasty especially with the two types of cheese and bacon.
Pier 41, Fisherman’s Wharf.
With fresh mozzarella and mixed vegetables. $3.25
Papplecco, San Diego CA
This was more flatbread than focaccia to me. If it was focaccia, then it’s the thinnest focaccia I’ve ever had, hehe! It was ok – I liked the ovalina better. I think part of the reason it wasn’t as good was because it came out cold and it wasn’t as cheesy.
Balboa Park Botanical Building, center dome.
Flatbread with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, basil. $3.25
Papplecco, San Diego CA
This was a great morning bite to start off our day. It was like a cheesy pizza pocket that was grilled to order, yum!
Medium coffee. $2
Natural History Museum, Balboa Park.
Project 365: Day 7
Omg! I am SO tired. I biked almost 15 miles to work this morning even though my legs were still tired from squats a couple days ago. Then Rapunzel, Papa Chang and I took a 30-minute bike ride before lunch. And then I biked to Bart after work and back home from the Bart station near my house. I was so hungry all day because I burned so many calories from biking. Maybe I’m over doing it on the exercise. I keep thinking, “Cruise, cruise, cruise!” I even had a dream about the cruise last night!
I’ve got to say that taking the midday ride was really fun and beautiful! It was nice to get out of the office, get some exercise and enjoy the outdoors. I love being outside and I’m glad that some of my coworkers do too!
Prosciutto, salame al tartufo, taleggio cheese, reblochon prefere de fromi cheese, mixed olive tapenade, fig and olive tapenade, multiseed flatbread.
After I had an early dinner, I was still super hungry so I made myself a nice snack plate to munch on while catching up on DVR. I love truffle flavored salami – I bought these from Whole Foods. Actually, everything on this plate is from Whole Foods, lol!
Flatbread with broccoli rabe, Txistorra sausage, caramelized onions and manchego cheese. $14
Contigo, San Francisco
This was some amazing flatbread! The Txistorra sausage tasted so good and had a great smokiness to it. I loved the heartiness of the broccoli rabe and manchego cheese. Everything just worked so well together and it was very filling. Yum!
