Lamb burger – Barking Frog

Lamb burger - Barking Frog
Red wine onions, arugula, goat cheese, aioli, pickle, brioche bun. Served with portabello mushroom soup. $21
Barking Frog, Woodinville WA

This was a pretty heavy and rich burger, but I liked the combination of flavors. The lamb patty wasn’t too strong and it had a nice sear on the outside. The soup, also very heavy, was a tasty accompaniment.

Candied bacon, Oregon blue cheese, smoked tomato ketchup, bibb lettuce, caramelized onion aioli, pickle, brioche bun. Served with portabello mushroom soup. $21
Barking Frog, Woodinville WA

This was good, and the beef patty was juicy and cooked nicely. The mushroom soup was also very tasty although I should have gone for a lighter side since the burger was quite large and heavy.

Pan seared diver scallops – Pesce

Capesante. Field mushrooms, green onion, cream. $14
Pesce, San Francisco CA

Beautifully prepared scallops are a wonderful thing! These scallops were perfectly prepared and very tender. The cream sauce was pretty heavy especially since there was SO much of it for only 3 scallops, but it was still tasty.

Spicy miso ramen – Ramen Underground

Ramen Underground, San Francisco CA

Wow, this ramen was really good. The spicy miso broth had a great kick to it and lots of flavor. They have a basic ramen bowl, and you just keep adding extra toppings at additional cost. It’s really about the broth and ramen though, and this place is solid in both aspects. Everything else is just icing on the cake.
