These were pretty good! The mini patties were still juicy, but I wish they were a little bigger to fill out the buns better.

Hand-pattied certified angus beef, toasted brioche, pickles, and onion straws. Three for $9
Matchbox Palm Springs, Palm Springs CA

Thank goodness that we really liked our server/bartender because the food at Matchbox wasn’t all that good. These sliders were on the boring side – I mean they could have at least toasted and buttered the buns. The onion straws were also too thin to really enjoy and they quickly became soggy.

Chinatown duck sliders – Maven

Chinatown duck sliders - Maven
Shiitake mushrooms, Chinese greens, bacon. Bloomspot 4-course chef’s tasting menu with cocktail pairings for two.
Maven, San Francisco CA

These duck sliders were very rich and delicious! They were on toasted buttery poppyseed egg bun which helped soak up all the yummy juices from the pulled duck. The greens (not quite sure what they actually were) were flavorful, almost on the pungent side. The sliders were on the verge of being too salty from all the rich umami flavors, but I’m glad it didn’t go over the edge.

5 Spot cocktail - Maven

5 Spot Cocktail: aged rhum, ginger, lime, maple, Thai basil, five spice.
This cocktail had a lot of flavors going on, but they actually all tasted pretty good together. The lime and basil also helped to freshen everything up.

VicenteSF and Codes go to White Castle!

Project 365: Day 60

Wow, what a long day! Had a great time at Codes’ birthday party last night. I do remember a couple funny moments. During the birthday banquet, some college frat guy walks by our table and because I was partially obstructing the walkway with my chair he politely says to me, “Excuse me, sir.” Sir! Omfg, I kinda freaked out, lol! But I also thought it was funny. Then at Taj Mahal, I was ordering another round at the bar and a group of three young college dudes (I’m sure from OSU since it’s down the street) look and me and say, “Well you look dapper!” LOL! Oh, kids can be so funny some times!

Anyway, today we ran more errands, visited Codes’ house, had drinks at Union, had more drinks and food at Hubbard, then went back to Union for even more drinks. I’ve never been to a White Castle so I had to go and try it after the bars. Omg, these things was so cute and cheap!

These sliders are definitely easy to eat. They practically melt in your mouth! That’s probably why people can eat so many of them. I also tried the chicken rings, but they weren’t all that great. I don’t know what I was expecting but they were kinda limp and didn’t have too much flavor without the bbq sauce.
