Provolone cheese, lettuce, onions, pepperoncini, jalapenos. $7.95
Portico, San Francisco CA
The sandwiches at Portico are very large, and this was no exception. I like the bread that they use and they heat up this meatball sandwich to melt the cheese. Very tasty!
Ham and cheese sandwich, meatballs, salumi, red wine. Complimentary
Air France KLM Lounge, San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
I like the snacks that they have at this lounge, and it’s never been super crowded which is an added bonus.
Marinara, pecorino. Happy hour $8
Hog & Rocks, San Francisco CA
I loved these meatballs! They were really flavorful and there was plenty of tomato sauce to eat it with. Yum!
Shaved parmesan, mint basil pesto, creme fraiche. $15
Vino Volo, San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
These meatballs were gross. They had a weird squishy texture and a weird flavor. I usually love lamb, but not these!
California Kings red wine flight. $14
Meatballs in chicken broth, pepe pasta, spinach, onions, carrot. Glass of red wine. Complimentary
American Airlines Admirals Club, San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
This soup was ok. It was pretty much standard airline lounge fare so the bar isn’t set very high. It’s definitely better with a glass of wine. 🙂
Artichoke dip, guacamole, tortilla chips, flatbread. Brunch buffet $29.99
Farmers Fishers Bakers, Washington DC
This probably looks like the most random plate them all, but these were some of the things I hadn’t tried yet. (Except for the artichoke dip which I had to get seconds of!) The meatball and polenta were great! I loved the creaminess of the polenta although it could have used a bit more salt.
Tomato-braised, parmesan, rosemary. $10
Corridor, San Francisco CA
This was delicious. I liked all the peppers thrown into the sauce and on top of the dish, and the homemade croutons were killer! Mmm…
Potato puree, pan gravy, lingonberry, pickled cucumber. $20
Plaj Restaurant, San Francisco CA
Mmm, fancy Swedish meatballs! I loved the gravy and lingonberry combo. And the meatballs were really tender. The pickled cucumbers were a nice addition.
