We're starting the weekend eating again!!!! Last night Gil & I decided to give Brenda's a try for dinner. We had eaten there twice, once for brunch & another time for lunch. The restaurant is small and after arriving (without reservations) at 8:30 pm, we had to wait 30 min. for a table. It was well worth the wait!
The style of cooking is called french-style, New Orleans soul. I wanted to try everything on their menu...everything looked so good...it was really hard making a decision & after talking to the couple sitting next to us (the tables are arranged very close to one another), we made our choices:
|We started off with drinks. Gil had this beer & I had a glass of zinfandel blend.|
(We both liked our drinks!)
|Fried Black-eyed peas|
This was served instead of the ususal bread.
It was very good...went well with our drinks.
|My entree choice: Crawfish & Andouille Pot Pie with Cheddar Biscuit & mixed greens.|
The dressing in the greens were delicious, but take a look at the pot pie (next picture)!
|This was piping hot! And there was plenty of crawfish & sausage.|
It was just the right "heat" & oh so good!
|DESSERT!!!! Black-Cherry-Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding with Bourbon Sauce!!!!|
This was so decadent! Everything about it was GOOD, GOOD, GOOD!
|Gil's dessert choice: Beignet, filled with Ghiradelli chocolate|
|Just look at all that chocolate in the beignet...Of course I had to try it...so glad I did!|
The beignets were perfect...light & crisp. And the chocolate made it even more perfect!
So, next time you're in SF & are looking for a place to eat, go try Brenda's, 652 Polk St. @Eddy.
Yours truly, Karen (in the Bay)
