A Memorable Sushi Experience At We Be Sushi Restaurant in SF!

While walking down Valence Street, I noticed this really small Sushi restaurant and decided to check it out as there weren’t many people and expected no wait times to be served! We were welcomed by the sushi chef himself, who was quite soft spoken.

I noticed that a lot of items on the sushi menu appeared quite new to me. Usually at other places I have gone for the maki rolls but on the advice of the chef, I decided to go with his suggestion which was to try a number of items off his menu.

Since we were two people, he offered to split each item into two, something I had never noticed any of the sushi restaurants do before! Also while he was making the sushi for us, we came to know a little bit about him. Apparently the chef had moved from Japan to the US a few decades back and ended up making SF his home.

The last item of Sushi that we got was something special he told on how all moms in Japan used to make sushi for their kids when he was young. It also aligned with the restaurant’s slogan ‘Like mom used to make’.

I think this is one of the few sushi restaurants that I am going to remember forever. It’s just the whole personalized sushi experience that I got and the feeling of being at home. And yes, the sushi was quite good! I do recommend you to check this place out if you are around the Mission-Dolores area.

Combo Platter At The Halal Guys In San Francisco!

I didn’t knew this but just while walking around the city of San Francisco, I noticed that they have Halal Guys! If you haven’t heard about The Halal Guys, it’s a really popular restaurant chain that started in Manhattan, New York City. A lot of New Yorkers when they are done with their drinking, end up at this place for a meal before heading home!

And I love The Halal Guys (NYC), so I went in and ordered a combo platter. The Combo Platter contains a variety of meat (beef/chicken) and has rice, lettuce and tomatoes. In case you are vegetarian, you can get their falafel platter.

For some reason, I felt that the Combo Platter that they serve in New York City is much better than the one in San Francisco. I think part of the reason might be that the restaurant in San Francisco is Franchise owned and the quality can be a bit different.

I think the Halal Guys in San Francisco didn’t meet my expectations but that doesn’t mean that I won’t be visiting the other Halal Guys restaurant in New York whenever I am there 🙂 If you are in New York, do try The Halal Guys street carts as they offer the best pricing for the platter.

Mystery Shots At Amado’s San Francisco!

While Bar Hopping at San Francisco’s Mission District, I decided to stop over at Amado’s as I was hearing really loud music coming from this bar. Turns out it’s not just a bar but the place has an underground music venue and is a restaurant as well!

I headed over to the bar which had a small sign that said $5 Mystery Shots and I was really curious what I would get for it, so instead of grabbing a beer or a cocktail, I decided to order their Mystery Shot! Turns out you get this really big shot glass with some really strong alcohol in it. I didn’t ask the bartender what was in my mystery shot but it was some good stuff!

Considering it’s San Francisco, this is prolly one of the cheaper drinking experiences you can have and this will get you buzzed real quick. However take caution if you are a light drinker! My stay at Amado’s was short however it was a good experience!
