Birthday Week (Part 2)

I'd like to thank my friend who treated me out for my (third) birthday dinner! I've been eyeing Farmer's Brown for many months, and it was one of the very few restaurants that I wanted to try for Dine About Town.

Due to its not so desirable location, I had to practice my 'speedy walk'. The area is the starting point of the Tenderloin district after all.

After my week long trip in New Orleans, I was still craving for good old Southern cooking in San Francisco- and Farmer's Brown did fit the bill. The meal started on a high note with refreshing pink sangria and chef's compliments of pimento crackers and buttery corn bread. I was on a roll for anything fried starting with the popcorn shrimp appetizer and fried chicken entree. I had high hopes for the fried chicken since this came up on my research as the must eat at Farmer's Brown but was disappointed with the lack of flavor of the chicken and sides of mac and cheese and vegetables.  My dining partner even jokingly commented that Jollibee fried chicken in the Philippines is miles better. There is some truth to this statement. The lemon lime pie was unfortunately forgettable although I couldn't forget the original paintings as seen below.
