SW and I decided to we needed to have a nice lil celebratory dinner last weekend, so we decided to treat ourselves to :
448 Brannan Street,
San Francisco, CA 94107
we started with:
chilled english pea soup | soft-shell crab / chili mint / pickled ramp
the soup was refreshing and the soft shell crab was quite tasty too
and of course the hamachi shots that Alexander’s is known for..
hamachi shot 2.0 | avocado / garlic / serrano chile / yuzu-soy / radish / cilantro
i’ve mentioned this before, but ever since tasting the deliciously melt-in-your-mouth Japanese Wagyu at Keiko a Nob Hill (see KEIKO a nob hill X 2), i’ve sort of fallen in love with it…and had to try it again at Alexander’s. This time, i splurged on the real Japanese Wagyu..not Australian, like the previous time (see speaking of salts…)
宮崎県 miyazaki japan a5 | warm mild climate / ideal conditions for raising cattle
it was tender and buttery..the accompanying salt platter always makes things more interesting and can really change the flavor. keiko’s is still #1 though!
to supplement our wagyu portion, we got
tomahawk chop for two | charcoal roasted giant ribeye / wasabi butter / veal glace
all other steaks list a weight, for example, grilled filet mignon 6 or 10 oz, dry aged t-bone 24oz…for the tomahawk, it just says “big”! and BIG it was…
and some accompanying sides:
brentwood corn gratin | camembert / harissa / corn bread crumble
mashed potatoes | chicken cracklings and white gravy
small amuse bouche dessert:
and as always..their flavored cotton candy — saturday night’s flavor was cherry lime!
