opinions of Taylor's Refresher & other Ferry Bldg eats?

frederika | Feb 5, 2004 07:07 PM

Please post any reviews of recent ferry bldg visits - I'm starting to wander over that way again, especially since more things have opened up, but I'm hesitant to invest in food I haven't tried yet (because it's so expensive!).

mmm...had a yummy Butternut Squash-Spinach turnover at Froghollow today.

Delica RF1 is a disappointment. Seems like an awfully large space for so little selection. The potato croquettes are super crunchy, but the rice ball was utterly flavorless. The other stuff...overpriced! I regularly hear older Japanese women in there saying, "oh, I make that at home all the time...very easy".

Lulu Petite is a let-down, too. Once I paid way more than I should for a sandwich and it was too salty, and the quiche was so softly, quiverishly mousse-like I gagged.

Stopped by Taylor's Refresher today - has anyone tried it yet? Is it as good as they say? Is it consistent with the Napa Valley one (although I've never tried that one either). I longed to try the fish tacos, but I couldn't eat 2, and $8 seemed a rather pricey risk. What are the must-eats there? I doubt I can afford to sample the entire menu.

Thanks!
