Wonton soup with bbq pork – Lee’s Deli

Wonton soup with bbq pork - Lee's Deli
Shrimp and pork wonton soup with bok choy, green onion, cilantro. $8

I would say that eight bucks for a super hearty soup makes for a great workday lunch. This isn’t the best quality, but it definitely quenches by salt and soup cravings.

Tori paitan ramen – Mensho Tokyo

Tori paitan ramen - Mensho Tokyo
Rich and creamy chicken soup, pork chashu, duck chashu, menma, kale, burdock, katsuobushi sauce. Double chashu $18
Mensho Tokyo, San Francisco CA

Overall,  I thought this place was overrated – especially for the price! I will admit that this tori paitan broth was delicious. I loved how rich and fatty it was, but I’m sure it’s not for everyone. I thought that the topping were mediocre though. Both the chasu pork and duck were bland and boring, and the other toppings were kept to a minimum. You think they’ve give you a bit more for almost 20 bucks for this slightly small bowl. Meh, wouldn’t go back.

Lamb burger – Barking Frog

Lamb burger - Barking Frog
Red wine onions, arugula, goat cheese, aioli, pickle, brioche bun. Served with portabello mushroom soup. $21
Barking Frog, Woodinville WA

This was a pretty heavy and rich burger, but I liked the combination of flavors. The lamb patty wasn’t too strong and it had a nice sear on the outside. The soup, also very heavy, was a tasty accompaniment.

Beef burger – Barking Frog

Candied bacon, Oregon blue cheese, smoked tomato ketchup, bibb lettuce, caramelized onion aioli, pickle, brioche bun. Served with portabello mushroom soup. $21

This was good, and the beef patty was juicy and cooked nicely. The mushroom soup was also very tasty although I should have gone for a lighter side since the burger was quite large and heavy.
