Fried onioncake – House of Nanking

Fried onioncake - House of Nanking
Served with house peanut sauce. $4.95
House of Nanking, San Francisco CA

Mmm, this was delicious! I loved the runny peanut sauce, and the filling of the cake with a combination Chinese green onion and red onions was great. The exterior had a nice flour-y flavor and was fried nicely with little grease residue.

Taco de chivo – El Norteno Taco Truck

Taco de chivo - El Norteno Taco Truck
Corn tortilla with goat, salsa, onion and cilantro. Served with pickled vegetables. Each $1.75
El Norteno Taco Truck, San Francisco CA

Not many taco trucks serve goat tacos. El Norteno doesn’t serve it every day and they often run out when they do. These tacos were really tasty and the salsa was nice and spicy. Goat has a pretty bold flavor so the salsa and pickled vegetables were great in neutralizing it a bit. For less than two bucks each, these delicious tacos are a must-eat (especially if you have jury duty at the court house across the street)!

Grilled marlin steaks – Plato D’Boracay Resto

Grilled marlin steaks - Plato D'Boracay Resto
With sauteed onions. Marlin 500 PHP, Cooking service 200 PHP
Plato D’Boracay Resto, Boracay PHILIPPINES

I can’t remember the last time I had marlin. It think it was in Seattle, back in the day. The fish tasted good, but it has a tendency to get dry pretty quickly. This was a bit on the dry side, but I think that’s why they suggested it be cooked with a sauce. My friend also requested some chopped tomatoes and onions to add more moisture and flavor.

Filipina pizza – Paraiso Grill

Filipina pizza - Paraiso Grill
Chicken adobo, salted eggs, onions, tomatoes, white cheese. 410 PHP
Paraiso Grill, Boracay PHILIPPINES

The combination of ingredients sounded very intriguing so we decided to order this. Unfortunately, the pizza didn’t come together as well as we thought it would. And the white cheese was kinda gross.

Paseo press sandwich – Paseo

Succulent morsels of roasted pork nestled atop sweet banana peppers, draped with sheer slices of smoked ham, Swiss cheese, and caramelized onions, all melted together between a hot press. On a lightly tasted baguette slathered with aioli (seasoned mayo), fresh cilantro, and crowned with caramelized onions. $8.95
Paseo, Seattle WA

Omg, this sandwich was AMAZING! It had everything that I love, and it was overflowing with flavor. I could eat this every day. I’d probably die of a heart attack, but at least I’d die happy. Hehe. 🙂
