Two eggs over easy, cheddar cheese and corn tortillas topped with spicy ranchero sauce and served with black beans and jalapeno sour cream. $9.75 Squat & Gobble, San Francisco CA
There’s something about a large plate of huevos rancheros that just makes my morning! The version at Squat & Gobble isn’t very authentic but it tastes great. The service is always very friendly here and the people watching makes me smile.
Savory crepe with avocado, bell peppers, tomatoes, sauteed onions and cheddar topped with salsa fresca and sour cream and spicy chipotle on the side. Served with house potatoes and mixed greens with vinaigrette. $9.50 Crepevine, San Francisco CA
To me, these crepe places tend to be cookie-cutter and predictable which is both a good and bad thing. You always know what to expect, but nothing is ever new and interesting. That’s why quality is the deciding factor when comparing these establishment. Crepevine is pretty good. The food is yummy and the ingredients are of nice quality.
A giant plate of homemade tortilla chips covered in a pepper jack cheese sauce, spicy taco-seasoned natural black angus ground beef, tomatoes, onions, guacamole, sour cream, and green onions. $15 Giovanni Pastrami, Honolulu HI
This was definitely a largo plate of nachos, but it wasn’t very good. The seasoned ground beef wasn’t spicy at all at the pepper jack cheese sauce was super bland. Lame!
Coors Light beer. Pitcher $12
White bougainvillea flowers (Nyctaginaceae), Ainahau Triangle Park.
Corn chips melted with jack cheese, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, whole beans, grilled skinless chicken and jalapenos de la casa. $8.95 Cancun Sabor Mexicano, Berkeley CA
It may not be readily evident from this pic, but this nacho plate is pretty darn big! And delicous! They use organic meats and other amazing ingredients. I’m also very much in love with their salsa bar. They have plenty to choose from and you can keep going back for more!
House-made chorizo sauasage, organic bell peppers and tomatoes scrambled with three eggs and topped with queso fresco, sour cream, homemade slasa and fresh green onion. Served with a warmed flour tortilla instead of toast. $14 Portage Bay Cafe, Seattle WA
This place was packed with a line out the door! Thank goodness we had reservations. I don’t completely agree why this place is super popular though. I get that they use fresh, mostly healthy ingredients but their preparations aren’t anything special. I expected a little bit more considering their shear popularity. The food was good, but I thought it was overpriced for what it was. And the service was random and slow at times.
Pike Place Public Market sign at the corner of Pine and Pike.
Marinated pork with rice, beans, cilantro, salsa, onions, cheese, avocado, and sour cream. Served with corn totilla chips. $6.50
Taqueria Cancun, San Francisco CA
Wow, this place is a mad house at 2 AM! I was in desparate need of food so I stumbled into this joint for a large, delicious burrito. I’m pretty sure it was good, I think… Lol! The intercom announcing the order numbers is REALLY loud, but I supposed that’s necessary at that hour. 🙂

The Monkeybutts! I thought this was quite the band during Sunday Streets in the Mission. They were playing in front of the SF Library Mission Branch to the delight of many kids and parents.
Flour tortillas filled with grilled shrimp topped with a chipotle lime slaw, pico de gallo, pepperjack cheese, and sweet chili infused sour cream. $10 Henry’s House, Charleston SC
The shrimp usually comes fried, but I requested them grilled. They were OK, but what really annoyed me was that they were supposed to be half-off for happy hour but we were still charged full price. Super lame! I guess it was also pointless to order the shrimp grilled since the tacos are covered in sour cream anyway.
Fleet Landing Restaurant, Concord Street. I haven’t been here yet, but would like to since it’s one of the few waterfront restaurants in downtown. People seem to enjoy their shrimp and grits as well as the fried green tomatoes.
Two chicken enchiladas with brown chocolate mole sauce, melted cheese, and sour cream. Served with Mexican rice, refried beans, and salad. $7.50
Santi’s Restaurante Mexicano, North Charleston SC
Mmm, this was so tasty and the service was fast and friendly. The mole was very flavorful and I really liked the refried beans too. There was so much food on this plate and all for less than eight bucks, heck yeah! I couldn’t even finish everything.
Chips and salsa. Complimentary. Noms, more please!
