Fog City Diner - What's good?
Went here for dinner the other night and found the food exceptional. We had a big group so ordered a bunch of apps to share including:
Crab cakes – fresh with lots of crab
Bread basket – delicious, especially the corn bread with the pepper jelly
Fried calamari – great spicy sauce with a kick
Mac and cheese – creamy and decadent. Close to the best mac and cheese I’ve ever had. (Best is still at Pican.)
Meatball sliders – meat was nice and juicy
Truffled fries – crispy with a nice truffle flavor
For the main course I had a burger that was cooked perfectly. The “lasagna” someone at the table ordered looked really good and different with what looked like puff pastry. The ribeye looked really good as well.
For dessert I had the chocolate molten cake that was really good as well.
We got there a bit early and hung out at the bar. The bartenders were friendly and recommended some tasty drinks. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised and thought that everything from the food, drinks to service was excellent, especially for the price point.
