B44 Catalan Bistro (San Francisco, CA)
Located on Belden street in the financial district of San Francisco, this cozy, dimly lit tapas sits aside many other restaurants with outdoor seating. Belden street- for the record- is more like an alleyway filled with restaurants, so if you happen to not take fancy to B44's menu, there are plenty of other options to choose from. On a random night, me and my friends decided to head to the city to shop and grab dinner afterwards.
This place was very dimly lit with red candles, so my pictures aren't the most appetizing... We had the ceviche, which is basically a seafood salad typically marinated in lime. The presentation was nice, but the ceviche itself wasn't out of the ordinary. The seafood was fresh- especially that delicious scallop on top- and the flavor was close to authentic, but tasted like ceviche I could find at a less pricey joint.
We also got the grilled leg of lamb brochette with cucumber salad, which was, in my opinion, the best plate of the night. The meat was grilled to perfection, and I only wish the sauces were as good as the meat. In any case, it still topped the other dishes.
