Kimchi burrito - was SO excited to find this in SF. Unfortunately, the burrito has some room to improve. The beef didn't have much flavor and there was far too much kimchi juice, resulting in overly soppy rice & dripping burrito. good job wrapping the sucker though. i can appreciate a tight burrito wrap job.
my friend had the chap chae bento box w/ bulgogi. good texture, chap chae could use more seasoning but it wasn't overly oily like most so that was good.
i've loved this chain ever since the first one on pine st. it's been a while so perhaps i'm out of the loop but cannot describe excitement at seeing the buttery sugary precious kougin aman. if this hasn't spread too far yet, get in on it now and tell your friends. it's like a caramelized croissant. same buttery flakiness but with a caramelized sugar "crust".
as always, their cannele are probs the best i've had in the US of A.
overall cute decor, good classic spirit based cocktail men (rye, pimm's etc).
started with a little amuse of daikon rolls filled with a sea creature i'm forgetting...possibly shrimp? tasty bites.
poached egg over asparagus and pork belly in parmesan broth
petite and delish down to the last drop. would have this egg every day.
goat cheese, beet salad - a pleasant spring mix
pureed daikon soup - yes please
amish blackened chicken - generous portion, moist & tender
chestnut cream & apricot dessert - light & tangy
chestnut cream a fascinating surprise
note, only 1 bathroom - plan accordingly
ideally i think this is a 3.5 rating. juuuuust shy of 4.
the snow ramen is...interesting. not bad. just diferent what with the cheese.
very generous portions of char siu.
noodle texture was great, very bite-y
thought the broth was a tad salthy, hence the .5 deduction from an otherwise good bowl of ramen.
espresso pork ribs: meltingly tender meat, great caramelized sauce infused flavor
goat pot pie: less of a pot pie and more of a stew with roti, the roti was thinner than expected (not quite the roti canai of malasian singaporean fame). good flavor in the goat stew.
side of brussels w/ chinese sausage: when does lap cheung NOT make everything better?
toasted baos: a tad too toasted & buttery. prefer a more traditional steamed mantao but it wasn't bad
noms! def will go again.
tried the steamed milk...prefer if it was warmed but overall still tasty. def. a bakery version vs the fancier steamed ginger milks elsewhere.
Out of the pork belly by 7pm on a Friday night so we did a tasting of
pulled duroc pork
hoisin veal meatballs
both good, not zomg deliciousness! but solid. of the two, the veal meatballs were more tender & flavorful.
had the pork belly on a previous visit and this is still the num pang to beat.
maple egg cream: didn't have the triple layers of a usu egg cream. everything was pretty stirred up but the flava flav held up.
sundae of broken dreams: vanilla sundae with caramel sauce and pretzels
um, heaven? do this.
made up for the slush puppy machine fail at nearby frank's deli.
good thing this was not here during those awk JHS years
