I’m eating 100 Items off of 7 X 7s SF Big Eat List. You can see the rest of entries to this series here. On my birthday my friends took me to the city to make some hard-core headway on this list, it was fun. I wish you had been there with us. :) #33-Ahi Burger at Gott's Roadside
Gott's roadside is when the crazy-town eating started to kick in. I don't remember being hungry at this point, which is not to say that I didn't want to eat more! Gott's is a hamburger import from Napa, it's kind of a farm to fast food kind of place. The ahi burger was refreshing, the tuna was seared well and the Asian flavored slaw gave it nice texture. On a normal day I would've been super-happy eating a sandwhich of this caliber, but... it was Big Eat day. A strange day when good food, suddenly seems... average.
Verdict: The ahi burger is good. I would eat it any day, but it did not change my life.
#34-Warm Egg Salad Sandwhich at Il Cane Rosso
During the process of procuring the Ahi Burger my friend Betty was left unsupervised in the Il Cane Rosso line where she was tasked with getting the Egg Salad sandwich. Despite the fact we had already eaten about 3 full meals she still came back with the sandwich AND a panzanella salad. What can I say? She can't be tamed.
If none of us was blown away by the Ahi Burger, the blame can be placed on the Egg Salad Sandwich. It was so unique. The bread was almost like a focaccia crouton and the creamy salad was perfectly seasoned with tarragon and other (hmmm, it's good, but what is it? fresh herbs). In a million years I would never have chosen to order this menu item. Quite frankly, I thought it sounded gross but it's discoveries like these that make this adventure worth it. It's so exciting to try something new and love it!
Verdict: Yes it sounds gross but it's not, it's the opposite of gross. It is marvelous!
PS-The panzanella was rockin too.
