Ostrich Fillet (Not Burgers)
I love ostrich. I'm talking about a solid, tender fillet. not burgers.
Does anyone know where I can get some at a reasonable price? I live in SOMA.
According tio foodiebytes.com:
Blowfish Sushi has "Ostrich portobello": Seared ostrich on a tempura portobello with ingen beans, ponzu sauce and purple beet vinaigrette
Eliza's on California St. has " Ostrich with Chinese garlic or mango"
Jasmine Tea Hlouse has "basil ostrich": Sliced tender ostrich stir fried with green onion, celery in a spicy basil barbeque sauce
Red Jade on Church has both Mango Ostrich and Kung Pao Ostrich.

I partly addressed that above. Polarica, for sure, and possibly some of the larger Chinese markets/butchers. There used to be a deli/restaurant in Chinatown (where Golden King Restaurant is now) that served ostrich meals in one room and sold uncooked cuts from a cold case next door. Some Chinese restaurants serve Ostrich, so I'm guessing about Chinese meat markets carrying them; I've seen just about everything else edible in Chinese meat markets including armadillo (tastes like turtle, said the sign).
Hmm... House used to offer an ostrich fillet that was amazingly tasty, but I don't see it on their website. I tried the ostrich fillet at Big Four and was disappointed (somewhat tough and not very flavorful). Years ago, I had an amazingly good ostrich dish at One Market as part of the Bon Appetit Grand Tasting event, but I'm guessing that's not offered on a regular basis.
