Spicy tonkatsu ramen - Pao Jao Dumpling & Ramen
Pork belly, boiled egg, spinach, chives, nori, bean sprouts, sliced red peppers. $11.95
Pao Jao Dumpling & Ramen, San Francisco CA

This was decent ramen, and I liked the slight heat from the spicy tonkatsu broth. I still don’t like their boiled eggs though. They seem old or have been sitting out for awhile.

The Cuban sandwich - Barndiva
Sliced Hobbs applewood smoked ham, swiss, pepperoncini relish, heirloom beets, and frites. $17
Barndiva, Healdsburg CA

This sandwich was pretty big, and it had a lot of flavor. I liked the pepperoncini relish, and of course the beets and frites were super tasty. I wish the bread was toasted though, or that the entire sandwich was pressed.
