Toast Eatery, San Francisco CA

I enjoy that there are 2 Toast Eateries in Noe Valley. With all the yuppies and their kids runnning around and very few brunch spots, my neighborhood definitely needs both locations. The fare is standard, but the prices are great and the atmosphere is lively.

Chinese BBQ platter – Mission Chinese Food

Chinese BBQ Mission Chinese Food
Smoked beef brisket, pork trotter and hot link with smoked cola BBQ sauce. Side of pickled cucumbers, onions and jalapenos.
Mission Chinese Food, San Francisco

I randomly read on Eater.com that Danny Bowien, the chef at Mission Chinese Food, had acquired a smoker and was going to start having bbq on the menu.  So I HAD to order the Chinese bbq platter when I finally saw it on the menu.  I must say that the brisket tastes pretty amazing with a great smoky flavor and oh so tender.  The hot link was ok, didn’t taste very different from others I’ve tried.  I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked the pork trotters – very flavorful.  I was afraid that I wouldn’t like the texture of the skin, but I hardly noticed it from the rest of the meat. And of course, the homemade pickles were great!
