Boston Hound Report: Thanks!

  • 5

Senor Sisg California burrito: the truck is now parked directly behind my San Francisco office. This is so stupidly delicious, even though it's fusion, doesn't include brains, blah blah blah. If I lived here full time I would probably eat there always.

Great Eastern: I was intrigued by this thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/886003 by Melanie Wong, so I stopped in last night for their very enticing list of specials. I ended up having lingcod with asparagus and lily bulb. The flavor was quite delicate and fresh, but I was disappointed to not get the house soup or red bean soup with tapioca pearl, but the menu looks really enticing. I liked the look of the oxtail claypot with redwine and think this could be a great place to get back to with a group.

Street: I was looking at corporate housing in Pac Heights and stumbled in here. The menu was rather "comfort food, but with a twist!"-ish, but the food was still solid. We split an order of steamed little neck clams, that while rubbery, were still flavorful. Then I had some duck confit with mashed potatoes, cabbage, and brussel sprouts. It's odd to say this, but the dish was better than it had to be. Creamy potatoes, bright sprouts, crispy duck - it worked well.

The House: I had three salads here, and while each was flavorful, all of them were overdressed.
Deep-Fried Chicken Liver with baby greens - I mean, it's deep fried liver. Who can say no?
Ahi Tuna Tartare with roasted nori chips
Seared octopus with crispy pork skin salad - probably my favorite out of the bunch.

    1. Thanks again, gini!

      Complimentary house soup and dessert are rarely -- if ever -- offered to non-Chinese patrons. Presumably one could ask, but I never have!

        That must be an SF thing -- we often get soup and dessert brought to our table at Canto restaurants in Vancouver.
