Beef and lamb marinated in spices with tahini sauce, hummus, pickles, salad and lettuce wrapped in lavash bread. Ordered hot. $7.95
Old Jerusalem, San Francisco CA
Wow, this was really good! I loved all the flavors and the pickles were actually a really great addition. It added a great tartness that I wasn’t expecting in a shawerma sandwich. It was super sauce which I love even though it gets messy eating. Noms!
Angus beef, aged Grafton cheddar, two fried eggs, pickles, caramelized onions, aioli, toasted Acme bun and fries. $13 Stock in Trade, San Francisco CA
This burger had a lot of flavor but it was super cold and lifeless! It was definitely a service mistake and I’m kinda surprised they served it. Damn, I would have microwaved it myself to get a bit of warmth on the plate!
Mimosas. This was one of the most bland mimosas I’ve ever tasted. Ew!
Pickled vegetables, garlic chili paste. Each $3.30 Little Uncle, Seattle WA
Which is better, braised pork cheeks or pork belly? I’m not gonna choose between the two because they’re both delicious! These buns were super tasty and I loved the braising sauce. The pickled radish and carrot gave these morsels the perfect bite. Mmm…

With aioli dipping sauce. $3 Jarred SF Brine, SF Street Food Festival 2013, San Francisco CA
These beans were very pickled tasting which was great, but they were SUPER greasy. I ate a couple and didn’t want to finish the rest. It was like chomping on a sticks of oil! And I can appreciate that they’ve prepared a lot of beans for the Street Food Festival, but they could have at least cleaned up the stems. Definitely not one of the highlights of the day.

Two 100% pure beef patties, lettuce, tomato, spread, two slices of American cheese on a freshly baked bun. “Animal style” with extra spread, pickles, and grilled onions. “With chopped chilies” adds slices of spicy yellow pickled chili peppers. And I also requested a side of peppers, lol. $3.40 In-N-Out Burger, Millbrae CA
OK, so I ordered this double double burger “animal style with chopped chilies”. Omg, it was huge and amazing!!! My co-worker recently told me about the chilies option on their hidden menu. Well I love spicy peppers so I thought I’d give it a try. This burger definitely filled me up, and it was messy and fabulous. The yellow chilies actually had some kick too! I was expecting mild pepperoncini slices, but these had some heat to them. Oh, how I love you In-N-Out!
Flatbread filled with beef, cheese, tomato, pickle. Complimentary
L’Arganier, Paris FR
We had sat down outside this restaurant for a quick drink break from walking around. After we had ordered our drinks, the waitress brought us this plate of roll ups which we weren’t expecting. We really liked her and thought that this was cute. We noticed that we were the only table to get the complimentary snacks in our area and we really weren’t sure why. It’s times like this when it would’ve been great to know French. 🙂
L’Hotel national des Invalides (Les Invalides). This huge complex is pretty impressive, but the Hardouin Mansart chapel dome is certainly the centerpiece.
These dumplings are kind of amazing! I just wish they give you more since they’re SO delicious. The dumplings have a great shape and the wrapper has a nice bite to it. I always love the combination of salty, sour, hot, spicy, and umami in the dishes from MCF. NOMS!
I really liked this smoked salmon bialy. The beer cream cheese had great flavor and wasn’t as heavy as normal cream cheese. The salmon also seemed lighter and fresher. Overall, it was a great way to start the day.
