Ordered from Munchery again. I do like that they are pre-pared meals by decent chefs. This meal was a Vera Cruz style local rock cod with a salsa and basmati rice. The rock cod, surprisingly, wasn’t dried out at all even after microwaving it. Good flavor!

Walked by here before, but hadn’t tried it yet. Glad there was no line when we went! I ended up going for the Spicy Miso ramen. It definitely looks more tasty than it actually was. Decent flavor, needed a bit more miso. Their egg was cooked pretty decently, but it was cold. I wish it would have been cooked on the spot so it was still gooey, but at least their noodles had good texture. A decent bowl, but definitely not the best in this part of the Bay.

Gotta love Peruvian food! We shared the entire meal. Started of with crab and fried avocado salad, which was light and flavorful. Next came the trio of ceviche (ceviche chifa, tiradito pasion, and tiradito sakura maru) that had so much flavor and left me wanting a lot more.

I took over ordering the Lomo Saltado (definitely a must-have), Pollo a la Brasa (well cooked chicken and fries), and Arroz con Mariscos (lots of seafood, similar to a paella.

Had to take this guy to one of my go-to spots in SF. The corn fritters are always delicious with the spicy aioli-ish dip. The roti is a definite must every time! The curry sauce is the best thing ever and the roti is soft, slightly flaky, and perfect! i got the Singapore noodles that have a bit of the curry flavor. It’s like eating in someone’s basement. Someone who has an awesome kitchen in their basement!

I had to get one of my favorite chinese dishes, salted fish and chicken fried rice. Pops got oxtail curry flat noodles, which he usually gets here. Both were damn satisfying!

Garlic fries and one of the many choices of delicious sausage at the park! What great baseball food! Throw on some kraut and onions with some good ol’ deli mustard and ketchup!

Need some cleansing after eating a lot of fatty foods in El Paso. Decided on some tasty northern style pho! Rare beef and well done beef (tender neck meat!) with some good broth, plenty of onions and cilantro, and soft flat noodles. Yum!

Family place with decent food. People love their croissants and the diner-type food is a-ok. Nothing to blow you away or keep you slim!

Rib tips! Nice and spicy BBQ sauce and pretty nice rib tips. The amount of food they give was surprising and I definitely couldn’t finish it all.

I ordered the green chile and cheddar burger. I think they like green chile in this city. I did like their fries. Some of the food here is pretty good, such as my burger, but some of the other stuff probably could come off the menu.

Some ethnic food!!! The chicken shawarma plate was pretty good. Tasty and came with an awesome garlic spread. The chickpea soup was a little dry, but was to be expected. We finished with the rice pudding, covered in honey and ground pistachio. Interestingly sweet.

Found me some Belgian brew! Surprisingly, my first Westmalle and decided to try the Tripel. Smooth and delicious.

We got some parmesan fries and chef’s choice pizza. The chef did a really good job choosing ingredients, including green chili. Good crust, too!

A healthier choice in EP. I got the steak sandwich and creamy cauliflower soup combo. I also tried their salmon sandwich, which was pretty decent. I thought my sandwich was alright, but the soup was tasty.

Easily one of the best restaurants in EP. They put green chili in lots of their dishes, but with flair. We shared a lot of the food, but I got one of their burgers. Good flavor and huge! It came with a spaghetti squash slaw, which was pretty good and unexpected. In a city with no real culinary creativity, Crave had lots of good options. I just don’t know how much the locals are willing to go outside their box.
