I ventured over to the Tenderloin to have lunch with a couple of friends. Why would I ever go to the Tenderloin, you ask? For Brenda's French Soul Food!
We wrote our names on the chalkboard wall and only had to wait about 10 minutes before we were seated. They were serving both breakfast and lunch, and all four of us ended up ordering off the lunch menu.
From top to bottom, left to right: Croque Monsieur with french fries, a close up of it, Cornmeal Fried Shrimp Po'Boy, and the BFC (two pieces of fried chicken with fries, cole slaw, & a cream biscuit).
The inside was decorated pretty modern and quirky. Overall, we loved it! I didn't care for the fries, but everything else was top notch. I can eat a croque monsieur everyday. It was my favorite meal in Paris!
Next, my DB and I had our first Philz experience just a block away from Brenda's.
I know, I know.. how could we not have visited Philz before, living in the Bay area for a year and a half now? My excuse is that we serve Philz on the airplane... same difference, right?
Wrong! We ordered the gingersnap ice coffee.
It was like slurping down ice cream. I added sugar and cream to mine, so it was nice and sweet, just the way I like it. Best. Coffee. Ever.
