Pozole verde – Puerto Alegre

Pozole verde - Puerto Alegre
House specialty, a special blend of chicken, pork, hominy, ham, and bacon in a green stew made with chiles and tomatillos. With lime, lettuce, and radish. $10.85
Puerto Alegre, San Francisco CA

Mmm, this was very tasty but I think I’ll order a regular (non-green) pozole next time. I guess that I’m just not a huge fan of tomatillo based soups and salsas. I’d much prefer tomatoes. 🙂

Pozole – San Jalisco

Pozole San Jalisco Mexican Restaurant

Pork soup in a red, homemade spicy sauce complemented with corn hominy. Served with cabbage, radishes, lime wedges, chopped onions, Mexican oregano, and chili peppers on the side. $9.95
San Jalisco, San Francisco

This pozole had great flavor, but I wish it had come out hotter (temperature wise). It was only warm and quickly became luke warm. Not the way you should enjoy pozole! The preparation was rustic which I don’t mind, but Silverfox didn’t like picking around the bones and connective tissue of the pork. I did enjoy the number of accompaniments this came with. You could flavor the soup just the way you like it.

I do have to mention that the service at this restaurant was particular sweet and friendly.

Pozole rojo – Nopalito

Pozole rojo Nopalito

Stew of pork shoulder, hominy, cabbage, radish, and chile ancho. $11
Nopalito, San Francisco

Can you say comfort food?!  In my opinion, this huge bowl of pozole is one of the best in the city!  The broth is pretty amazing and oh so flavorful.  I always squeeze the entire lime into the soup and throw in all the extras.  They give you nice and thick tortilla chips that retain their crispness even after sitting in the pozole for a while.

Pozole rojo Nopalito

Served with lime, red onions, oregano, chili powder and tortilla chips.

Yummy "dim" dinner – Range

We had an absolutely wonderful dinner at Range on Valencia Street in the Mission. The restaurant is dimly lit so I wasn’t able to take any good food pics, but I thought I’d post these anyway for posterity, hehe. We also had the creamed nettles with a poached farm egg for an appetizer, but that pic didn’t come out at all.  Enjoy!
Range, San Francisco

Pink Panther cocktail Range

Pink Panther cocktail – Tito’s vodka, pomegranate, tawny port, black pepper, lemon.
Yummy yummy cocktail and I loved the soft pink color!

Smoking Gun cocktail Range

Smoking Gun cocktail – Bulleit bourbon, maraschino, Dolin sweet vermouth, scotch rinse.
I didn’t like this cocktail as much.  I think the scotch rinse was too much for me.

Pan roasted bavette steak Range

Pan roasted bavette steak with horseradish, barley, brussels sprouts, shiitake mushrooms and baby turnips. $28
Yum!  I’m not a huge horseradish fan, but these were mild and tasted great with the perfectly cooked steak.  The brussels sprouts were yummy and the baby turnips were so frickin’ cute!

Coffee rubbed pork shoulder Range

Coffee rubbed pork shoulder with creamy hominy and braised greens. $25
Omg!  I’m hungry just recalling this dish!  The pork was so tender and juicy and the coffee rub gave it a great flavor.  The sauce was to die for and tasted SO good with the hominy and greens.  A definite winner dish!
