Almonds and red onions. Pre fixe menu Mozzeria, San Francisco CA
I’m all for pizzas not having sauce, but this wasn’t very good. It was super dry and sad. The only thing providing any juicy element were the few strands of caramelized red onions because even the spinach had dried out from baking. The dough was also a little too thick to have it without sauce, and the warm toasted almonds dried out your mouth even more. I’d say this pizza was a FAIL.
Beer batter fish in soft corn tortillas with cilantro, cabbage, red onions, roasted tomato and lime salsa. Nick’s way made with a grilled crispy corn tortilla wrapped in a soft tortilla with Monterey jack cheese, pinto beans, pico de gallo and guacamole. $5.50 The Taco Shop at Underdogs, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this really is a great taco! The fish is delicious and perfectly fried, not greasy at all, and really flavorful. And if you order the taco “Nick’s way”, you get at lot more flavors and textures to an already killer taco. Noms!

Ceviche de camaron. Shrimp, lime, roasted tomato, red onion, cucumber, avocado, cilantro, served with tortilla chips. $13 El Techo de Lolinda, San Francisco CA
Eh, this was a standard ceviche; nothing special and maybe a little on the too sour side. I wasn’t very impressed with this ceviche knowing how popular this place is for drinks and bar food. I think they’re banking on their rooftop location more than providing delicious drinks and food. We’ll see how long before people catch on.

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.
Narrowleaf self-heal (Prunella vulgaris var. lanceolata, Lamiaceae), Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve.
Mmm, I loved the combination of flavors in this delicious sandwich! The pork was tender and juicy, but it was the addition of grapefruit, red onions and jicama that really surprised me. Noms! I wish the fries were less greasy, but they still tasted great.

Toasted baguette, red onion fennel salad, nicoise olives, hearts of celery, Kennebec chips. $14 King’s Highway, Palm Springs CA
Wow, this sandwich was pretty big! It was more of a very chunky nicoise tuna salad on top of a split baguette than a proper sandwich. I’m not complaining because it was delicious, but it was not what I expected. The fresh potato chips were also very yummy.
Boomers in Cathedral City. We went go karting here, lol!
Thai spicy lemon grass soup with shrimp, mushrooms, red onions, tomatoes, Chinese parsley and Thai herbs. Cup $6.50
Original Thai Cuisine, Kailua-Kona HI
We decided to switch it up with food and find out how Hawaiians do Thai! We had mixed reviews. The soups were really good and flavorful. $6.50 is normally a lot for a cup of soup, but they’re actually the size of bowls. We didn’t know this place was BYOB otherwise we would have brought a case, lol!
