I really do love eating eggplants, so it was a shame and annoying that this grilled eggplant salad wasn’t very good. It tasted WAY too sour the eggplants were cooked unevenly. Some were undercooked and on the hard side, and others were overcooked and super mushy. Lame!
Served with warm baby leeks and truffle vinaigrette, broccoli rabe, pork stuffing, and pork jus. Incanto, San Francisco CA
I’m back! OK, I know I’ve been MIA and I apologize. Life has been hectic and I haven’t been able to adjust as quickly as I wanted to.
Anyway, it took the closing of Incanto to get me to blog today. Over the weekend, we celebrated a friend’s bday with the FINAL whole roasted pig dinner ever to be served at Incanto. It was a wonderful dinner and the food was delicious.
They brought out the whole roasted pork and it looked beautiful! I thought the gold leafed snout was a nice touch.
Our server carved the pig tableside. I was surprised that the body had actually been deboned prior to cooking so only skin and meat remained.
The meat was SO tasty, especially smothered in the pork jus.
I made sure to go back for plenty of the crispy skin.
The sides were also very good. The baby leeks were beautifully presented.
The broccoli rabe had a nice bitterness to them.

This was such a great salad. It was bright and fresh and the dungeness crab tasted delicious. I also really loved the beautiful, multicolored chicories that they used especially the pink-splotched variety. Noms!
