This is just a general thank you to you SF Chowhounders. I just came back from SF a couple of days ago from my first vacation in YEARS. As I was visiting tons of friends and family (Filipino-style, which means wonderful, endless days of eating homecooked tastiness) I knew that I would only be able to go try one great place.
After scouring the boards, I found Incanto.
I knew it was a good sign when the cabbie that took me there commented that it was a place only locals knew about.
Apps: The Porchetta di Testa was interesting - I really enjoyed the marbling. Though I totally forgot to ask which part of the head it was - I am guessing cheek. (Anyone know?)
Entree: I had the Spaghettini, Sardinian cured tuna heart, egg yolk & parsley which was just...delish. *sigh* My friends had the Braised pork shoulder and the Roasted lamb neck. While both exceptionally tasty, I am glad that I went with the wilder of the 3 (as per the suggestions given by chowhounders).
Dessert: I had the Bay leaf panna cotta which was meltingly good. Though I think my pal's Honey-lavender ice cream with peach crostini was the absolute best. Esp the ice cream. Dreamy.
So, thank you, chowhounders for helping me make the best of my vacation.
