Mmm, I really enjoyed this! I think it’s the perfect share – not too big and absolutely delicious! I loved all the different flavors and textures. Everything was perfect! Ok, almost perfect. The shrimp were slightly overcooked, but who cares! This was definitely my favorite snack that we ordered.

Niman Ranch cheeseburger – Fish & Farm

Niman Ranch cheeseburger Fish & Farm

Ground beef patty cooked medium with a fried farm egg, grilled onions, white cheddar, house made pickles, secret sauce, Acme bun, and French fries with fried parsley. $14 plus $2 additional for egg
Fish & Farm, San Francisco

Yum, this thing was delicious! You might think – a burger is a burger is a burger. Not so! There are plenty of shitty burgers out there and you all know it! This burger was absolutely nommy. It was also very large and I could only finish less that 3/4 of it. I didn’t even eat the top bun. I scraped the secret sauce off of it and set it aside. Way too much carbs already with the French fries and all.

The beef was so good and I loved their homemade pickles. Every part of that burger was good. The French fries was also delicious and I really like their dipping sauce. It took us awhile to figure out what it was, but I think we decided it was a horseradish bbq sauce. What a great combination! It was on the runny side, but it tasted great.

Macaroni and cheese – Cafe Flore

Macaroni and cheese Cafe Flore

Shell pasta baked in a creamy parmesan and white cheddar cheese sauce with cornbread crumble and chopped parsley topping. $6.50
Cafe Flore, San Francisco

Wow, this was good! Maybe it’s nostalgia, but I tend to like yellow mac and cheese the best. This version, however, made me forget about the color (hehe). It was nice and rich, and the crunchy topping added a great texture and even more flavor.  The medium sized shells held a lot of the yummy cheese sauce and were fun to play with! 🙂
