It’s been several days since I’ve had some time to blog, needless to say, there has been a lot of eating going on 😛
Let’s start with Thursday. I was originally planning to cook something, but laziness and tiredness got the best of me, and we ended up back in the Mission..good old Mission..I’m really starting to love this area for its diversity of cuisines/restaurants. It has definitely seeing a lot of revitalization in the last couple of years with new restaurants popping up all the time which is awesome for variety, not to mention, many are open later–convenient if you are sometimes a late night eater.
We had no cravings, and ended up parking outside of lolo (http://www.lolosf.com/). I’ve walked past this restaurant many times and was always curious to try it. I was a bit hesitant at first because we’ve had tapas a lot recently. Despite this, SW and I were still pleasantly surprised..the words, “This might be my new favorite restaurant” came out of his mouth, but with him, you can never tell if he’s joking or serious!
We started with:
Tijuana Ceasar Salad: I really enjoyed the twist on this classic salad. I didn’t read the description, and I should have known better then to expect a traditional ceasar. Aside from the normal components, there were also anchovies, avocado slices, as well as red cabbage pieces.
Taco Tropical: It looked like it would be maybe a bit saucy but it was like a treat for your mouth with the mixture of flavors and textures–the crunchiness of the panko-crusted shrimp, and the outter cool veggie shell (I’m guessing it was some sort of radish) were a great combo. This was probably the best tapa we had that night.
