Creme fraiche, potato puree, broccolini. $25
Finn Town, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this tasted great, but I thought that the short rib was on the small side. I liked the rich, deep flavors though. The potato puree was especially yummy with the pan suace and creme fraiche.
Jim Neely’s Interstate BBQ, Memphis International Airport (MEM)
I liked the flavor of these hash browns, but they were super greasy! I had to used multiple napkins to sop up some of the grease before I could actually eat them.
Shallot aioli. $7
The Perennial, San Francisco CA
These were ok, but the service at the bar was really shitty! I don’t think I will ever come back to this place or even recommend it because the service was THAT bad. #fail
Vegetarian Indian curry with potato and cauliflower. $7.99
Hyderabadi Biryani Corner, Herndon VA
I thought I’d mix it up with a vegetarian dish. This was really good especially since I love potatoes in curries. Mmm…
Parmesan, house made curry ketchup, house dip. $8
Jasper’s Corner Tap and Kitchen, San Francisco CA
These were really good and tasty (like anything cooked in duck fat, lol)! I just wish the parmesan wasn’t the hard, grated kind. It would’ve been better either shaved or powdered.
ChurchKey, Washington DC
These tater tots were SO fluffy and soft on the inside. They definitely weren’t your typical tots that come in frozen bags! They were really good!
Falafel with hummus, eggplant, potatoes, lettuce, tomatoes, pickled cabbage. Served in lavash wrap. $8
Sunrise Deli, San Francisco CA
This falafel wrap was definitely not very “super” in my book. The falafel themselves were ok, but the whole wrap was super dry and boring. There was way more wrap than filling, and even the filling seemed somehow dry even with the hummus. They needed some tzatziki or have the eggplant mixture more juicy. I was not a fan.
Construction the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Cole slaw, purple potato salad, pickled red onion, carrot, pea shoot. $21
1760, San Francisco CA
This tasted good, but I think it was overpriced for the portion. I also think that the sour/tart flavors dominated the dish and I hoped for more luscious bbq flavors to rise through. The purple potato salad wasn’t my favorite thing either. I’ve had purple potato salad before but they had better flavor and texture than this one by 1760. Overall, I kinda think that this restaurant is overrated. There were more missteps than successes during this meal.
Sorelle, Bronca, Prosecco di Valdobbiadene ‘Particella 68’ NV. Bottle $45
Oh dear, Jesus! Let’s just say it was pretty late when I ordered this huge plate of fries with a side of gravy, lol! $3.40
Orphan Andy’s, San Francisco
Old meets new in Noe Valley.
Fingerling potato, celery, saffron broth, frites, aioli. $11
Wine Kitchen, San Francisco CA
Mmm, I really liked this dish. The mussels were a bit sour and tart from the marinade, but I thought it worked well with the saffron broth and aioli. The components seemed a bit odd to me at first, but they all tasted great together.
Flights of wine.
Weird head sculpture, SoMa.
Hash browns, mushrooms and tomato, pineapple, cranberry raisin bar, roll, orange juice. Complimentary
Manila (MNL) to San Francisco (SFO), Philippine Airlines
Ugh, not the best way to end a vacation – with subpar breakfast food from PAL. The ham was a bit salty and the hash browns were super mushy. I never expect much from airplane eggs so I really didn’t dock PAL points for them. Oh well…
Ominous skies over Manila Bay.
Hand-cut fries topped with house-made gravy, fresh cheese curds, diced red onion and parsley. Happy hour $4
The Gerald, Seattle WA
Mmm, I love poutine! And The Gerald’s version is pretty darn tasty. The gravy is delicious and the fries are freshly fried, crispy on the outside and hot and fluffy on the inside. The pieces of cheese curds dotting the dish are nice lil’ treats!
Bobby Burns: scotch, vermouth, Benedictine. Happy hour $7
