I finally get to try Senor Sisig! And it was much better than I expected! Hype was big and it lived up to it! The sisig fries with a fried egg…yes!

Got a champinones empanada and another from a different food truck. I’ve had it before and it’s so good! The chocolate creme brulee is consistently tasty.

It was great to have this again after a few years without! Their grilled cheese has a couple types of cheese, all of which are delicious! It goes perfectly in their tomato soup and croutons.

Kind of dangerous having a solid Korean place so close! The prices are decent and the food is good, so I’ll keep going back until I get sick of it!

Some of the better XLB in the city. Their crab and pork dumplings are hella good. I like this place more than others because the dumpling skin isn’t too thin where it breaks every time you pick one up and it’s not too thick where it is just too much. If you see the doughnuts being brought around, just grab them! They’re awesome and are only cooked in batches. You might not see them come back around the rest of your meal!

Haven’t had Ethiopian for a while, so it was good to revisit this spot. We shared a bunch of entrees that included Kilwa (beef sauteed in butter with tomatoes, onions, garlic, and spices), Zebhi Dorho (marinated chicken), and the vegetarian mixed special. 
Always great flavors and more filling than what it looks like.

Loving this place! Best chicken and waffles I’ve had. Awesomely fried chicken and bananas foster waffle! I didn’t think it’d be all that, but the sweet bananas and whipped cream just meant more flavor to go with the fried chicken. I want to go back again soon!

This place is super bomb! Garlic rice, some of the best pork sisig I’ve had so far, and an awesomely sour Bangus sinigang. Daly city is flooded with good Filipino food, but this is one of the better one’s I’ve had and it’s a hidden restaurant!

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!
