B & M Mei Sing [San Francisco]

i go there fairly frequently.
i usually order gun lo mein with wontons and duck with choy sum. ive been having it for 15yrs or so. i now also order the crispy noodles with beef and choy sum. its kinda like oyster sauce chicken over cake noodle from hawaii, which i adore.
everyone does seem to order the fried fish.

Rancho Las Trancas - SSF

ive gone there a few times after arriving for the machaca and green chili burros.
when i was a kid the tortillas they used were about 16 inches across and they had to use two to make the burrito cause it was so heavy, it puts mission style burritos to shame.
my family used to get tortillas from carolinas several times a week.

Rancho Las Trancas - SSF

funny you mention carolinas melanie, i went to high school at st marys in downtown phx, carolina's daughter bertha went to my high school and i was even an escort in her quinceanerra, which was catered by carolinas. im all to familiar with her enchiladas, the sauce at trancas isnt like carolina cause of the special ingredient, but they are very good.

did you go to the original carolinas by the airport or the new one?

ISO good chile rellenos, crab enchiladas, tortilla soup, huevos rancheros and decent fish tacos at restaurants with table service in SF, Santa Rosa and/or Sonoma

in ssf, rancho de las trancas has really good crab enchiladas and in house made realllly yummy tortilla soup. their shredded beef tacos are heavenly. they stuff the tortilla with the shredded beef and some oniaons, seal it with a toothpic then fry it. their red sauce is tasty and has a really unique taste, i asked a waitress and she told me it is pumpkin pie spice.
very simple old school place, with a great band on friday night.
