Chilaquiles – Luna Park

Chilaquiles - Luna Park
Tortilla chips, eggs, beans, queso fresco, salsa fresca. $13.95
Luna Park, San Francisco CA

There was certainly a lot of food on this plate! I just wish it tasted a little better. The sauce was on the bland side and the eggs were on the verge of being overcooked. It’s a great value, but probably one I wouldn’t order again.

Carne asada nachos – The Little Chihuahua

Carne asada nachos - The Little Chihuahua
Hot corn tortilla chips topped with black beans, smoky chile salsa, jack cheese, guacamole, sour cream and pico de gallo. $10.95
The Little Chihuahua, San Francisco CA

This was delicious and super cheesy! The carne asada was very flavorful and I liked the smoky chile salsa than the others they have at their salsa bar. I’m also surprised how well the sour cream and guacamole withstood the car ride in the to-go container.

Yellowtail crudo – Padrecito

Yellowtail crudo - Padrecito
Mango, avocado, chipotle-agave salsita and blue corn chips. $15
Padrecito, San Francisco CA

Hmm, this isn’t what I expected when I saw “yellowtail crudo” on the menu. It’s ok becuase this actually tasted pretty good. I would have preferred if there was less mango so that you could properly taste the yellowtail though.

Chilaquiles – Solaire Restaurant + Bar

Chilaquiles - Solaire Restaurant + Bar
Salsa, tortillas, Rio Zape beans, queso fresco and fried Glaum eggs. $12
Solaire Restaurant + Bar, Santa Cruz CA

This dish was lame. The sauce covering the tortilla chips was cold and the tortillas were way too soggy. The Rio Zape beans were bland and boring, and the eggs were overcooked and dry.

Coffee - Solaire Restaurant + Bar
Freshly brewed coffee. $3

Velvet nachos – Velvet Cantina

Velvet nachos - Velvet Cantina
With chorizo, house made tortilla chips, chile con queso, black beans, sour cream, and guacamole. $12.78
Velvet Cantina, San Francisco CA

Omg, this was SO frickin’ wrong in the best way possible! You knew this plate was bad for you once it arrived, but it tasted so good that you couldn’t stop from eating the entire thing, lol. The chile con queso was warm and melted and just coated the tortilla chips perfectly. The chorizo was an added dose of unhealthy, but it too tasted heavenly to omit. I think my heart is constricting again just decribing this plate, lol!

House margarita – Velvet Cantina

House margarita - Velvet Cantina

100% Agave Dos Manos, triple sec, fresh citrus juices. Pitcher $27
Velvet Cantina, San Francisco CA

I’ve been to Velvet Cantina several times now and I haven’t been all that impressed with their margaritas. They’re decent, but nothing special. They’re not cheap so I would expect more “wow”!

Chips and salsa - Velvet Cantina
Chips and salsa. Complimentary
I do love their chips and salsa though. The chips are extra salty and their salsa is a bit different from most restaurants.
