Pepper jack scramble, chorizo and roasted jalapeno relish, chipotle aioli on a brioche bun, potato wedges, cantaloupe. $12
Griddle Fresh, San Francisco CA
First of all, the service here was SO horrible! They were super slow and completely unattentive. It was the hardest I’ve had to work to flag a server down every time I needed something. Now to the food. It gave me heartburn. Between the spicy chorizo, spicy jalapeno, pepper jack cheese, and chipotle aioli there was SO much heavy spice and fat that I really couldn’t take it. On a positive note, the scramble was well cooked, the bun nicely toasted, and the cantaloupe was ripe and sweet.
These drinks were really cute! A bit cheesy, but cute. I don’t think I’ve ever had my bloody mary garnishes made into a face before, hehe. The drink itself was pretty tasty, but for some reason neither of us could finish it. It wasn’t very spicy (we can handle spicy!), but it seemed very filling for some reason.
Crisp chicken bites, jalapeno. $9 M.Y. China, San Francisco CA
Chairman Mao’s chicken must be the sad, poor cousin of General Tso’s chicken. These chicken bits weren’t any better than the frozen variety from Safeway, just sprinkled with a mound of MSG!
