Mmm, these nachos were delicious! I liked that the quality of the ingredients was pretty good at Tacos Club, but you also pay a little more than other Mexican joints in the neighborhood.

Jalapeno six dollar burger – Carl’s Jr.

Jalapeno six dollar burger - Carl's Jr.
Black angus beef patty, pepperjack cheese, jalapenos, Santa Fe Sauce, lettuce, tomato. $7.06
Carl’s Jr., San Francisco CA

Fast food burgers NEVER look as good as the menu photos, but this hamburger from Carl’s Jr. is just pathetic! I just want to laugh at how ridiculously small and unappetizing it looks. I guess that’s what I get for succumbing to my fast food urges.

Now this is what I call a sandwich! This place is amazing and the sandwiches are killer! The pork is SO tender and flavorful. It’s a messy endeavor to eat this monster, but it’s completely worth it. NOMS!

Red dragon & Reward rolls - Barracuda Sushi
The rolls at Barracuda are always pretty tasty and large, but you’d expect that at this above-average price point. I do like that they offer plenty of fried (tempura) roll options for my fat-craving self, lol! Their flavor combinations are also inventive and varied.

Hella-peno burger munchie meal – Jack in the Box

Hella-peno burger munchie meal - Jack in the Box
Beef patty topped with American cheese, stuffed jalapenos, mayo-onion sauce and ketchup on a sesame seed bun. Served with two tacos, fries and medium Diet Coke. $6
Jack in the Box, San Francisco CA

OK people, don’t judge me – LOL! We had just driven back to the city from a gala fundraiser up in Marin County where they didn’t serve very much food, so I was STARVING! We walked in and my eyes immediately fell on the promotional sign for the Hella-peno burger. I had to try it! The burger was pretty lame, but it filled me up and it came with tacos, fries and a drink – all for six bucks so I’m not gonna complain. This makes me a bad person. 🙂

Smoked deviled eggs – Park Tavern

Smoked deviled eggs - Park Tavern
Bacon, pickled jalapeno and chive. $13
Park Tavern, San Francisco CA

Mmm, these were amazing! I hated deviled eggs as a kid, but I have really come to appreciate them as an adult. Especially the fancy varieties that other people make, hehe. These were jam packed with flavor and everything worked spectacularly together.

Hue spicy noodle soup – PPQ Beef Noodle House

Hue spicy noodle soup - PPQ Beef Noodle House
Bun bo hue. Beef shank, pork hock, fancy pork and tendon in spicy lemongrass beef broth with round noodles. Accompanied by sprouts, lemon, jalapeno, basil, onions and cilantro. Medium $8
PPQ Beef Noodle House, San Francisco CA

Wow, this was really good! I loved the spicy broth and the mixture of ingredients. The last hue soup I experienced had blood cubes in it which is probably more authentic (I’m guessing), but I liked this version better. Blood cubes are a bit too rich more my taste. This broth had a deep, rich flavor that was brightened up a bit by the lemongrass. I could eat this for days!
