SF Saloon

For Sharisa’s good-bye dinner (NOOOO, SHARISA DON’T GOOOOO!), we all gathered at SF Saloon for some fun burger lovin’. This place is super laid back and has tons of parking – very low maintenance and good for huge groups. The time interval between when the first people came (James and I were third to come) and the last people was, like, three and a half hours, so it took us a long time to order. Thank goodness for their yummy fries. They are crispier than your average fry, though not in a disgusting Burger King fry way. WHICH, by the way, according to James, have a mind-blowing sixteen grams of trans fat. Insanity.

The late ordering was distressing because my perfect food-shooting light shining down from the skylight was going to go away. No one at the table seemed to care too much about it, though, and everyone took their sweet old time ordering. By the time my food came – total darkness. Betches.

And yet, people were absolutely fascinated in an angry sort of way when I started taking pictures of the mustard. I thought Extra Strong Dijon Mustard would be interesting for the CM readership; it’s something you don’t see every day, and how cool that a restaurant wants something with actual kick and flavor to go with their burgers! But my fellow companions at the table couldn’t stop grumbling about it, and shaking their heads in disbelief. I’m just misunderstood.


See? See the difference between this photo and the good-light fry photo above???

Ever UCLA-faithful, I got the Bruin Burger – lettuce, tomato, avocado, bacon, & cheese. It was an easy choice. I cut it in half, intending to only eat one part, but by the time I noticed the whole thing was gone. You can’t really go wrong with these types of ingredients, but I still think it was yummier than most burgers I’ve encountered.

Sigh. Good-bye, Sharisa! The only silver lining of this is that you will re-open your blog and tell us about your yummy eats in Pittsburgh. Best of luck!
