Lump blue crab and avocado salad - Tommy Bahama Restaurant
Shredded baby Kula romaine, Kamuela tomatoes, feta, red onions, lime-caper vinaigrette. $23

I liked this salad, but the lettuce was over-dressed and almost runny. I liked the flavors and textures of the dish though. I thought the crab was bright and fresh tasting, and the tomatoes were beautifully ripe.

I liked the flavors of the pizza, but it just felt low quality and basic to me. I do like the price of the lunch combo though.

Wild arugula salad – Hearth Coffee Roasters

Wild arugula salad - Hearth Coffee Roasters
Cherries, chopped walnuts, parmesan. Prix fixe dinner $29.50
Hearth Coffee Roasters, San Francisco CA

This salad was tasty, but I’m really tired of the cold service that adds to an overall unwelcoming atmosphere. This was our final meal here with no expectation to return any time soon. I guess we’ll continue to search for our midweek go-to neighborhood joint for dinner.

Brown rice with lamb meatballs, chickpeas, cauliflower, avocado, New Dehli slaw, cilantro, masala chutney, and cucumber raita. $10.10
Bamboo Asia, San Francisco CA

This bowl had a lot of everything! And I’m not sure everything taste great together. It could have benefited from a little editing in the toppings department. It was very filling though!

Little gem and roasted baby beet salad – Prospect

Little gem and roasted baby beet salad - Prospect
Green goddess dressing. $12.50
Prospect, San Francisco CA

This salad was good. I appreciated the care they took in stacking the lettuce leaves atop the beets, and I liked the flavor of the green goddess dressing but I wasn’t blown away by the salad as a whole. I definitely wouldn’t include it in a list of things you have to eat before you die.
