Kyoto style cooked local vegetables, served in three different preparations. Tasting menu
Izakaya Yuzuki, San Francisco CA
I can’t remember all the vegetables in this dish, but on the left are eggplants and on the right are a type of yam. The bowl contains a leafy green. The preparations were delicious and the eggplants were my favorite!

Shaken Beef. Cubes of angus filet mignon, wok-seared medium rare with onions and garlic. Served on a bed of mixed greens, brown rice, and topped with yam fries. $20
Zadin, San Francisco CA
I don’t know why I expect every version of Shaking Beef to be good! This was ok, but the beef was a little tough. Oh well, the search continues…

Project 365: Day 40
It’s been an uneventful day thus far, besides it sporadically being super windy and rainy outside. I was on the highway earlier and I swear that the car was occasionally being blown into the other lane, scary! I’m looking forward to a great gym workout after work. I gotta work off all that fried Southern food from this weekend and I don’t want to feel bloated for Valentine’s Day tomorrow!
Purple yam flavored ice cream. Junior size $2.20
Mitchell’s Ice Cream, San Francisco
I love all the tropical flavors at Mitchell’s! I’d say that Halo Halo is my favorite, but Ube is also delicious. I love that it has chunks of purple yam in the ice cream and I think the color is particularly pretty.

Yam tater tots with a cilantro-lime crema. $4.90
Criolla Kitchen, San Francisco
These were delicious! I’ve never had yam tater tots before. They were slightly sweet, and warm and crispy on the outside. The crema was a great accompaniment, but they also had a hot sauce that I liked better.
