SF - Happy Hour at Anchor & Hope

osho | Jan 11, 2011 02:00 PM

psb and I met for a drink (well - several) this week at Anchor & Hope.

There are a few mentions of it on the board but nothing specific to Happy Hour. The chief attraction for me is clearly $1 Oysters from 4:30 PM to 6 PM on weekdays, IIRC. They had a fantastic plump and juicy variety from Washington the day we were there. Miles ahead of some other $1 oysters in SF like Grand Cafe and the like. Properly shucked too - which is always a delight.

I had a few pints of Lagunitas IPA - $3 a pop during happy hour. Note for lovers of English ale, they do have a hand pumped ale on tap - only sometimes though ! psb tried a couple of white wines I think and was impressed with their extensive beer list.

Following which we had the angels on horseback - described here in detail by a fellow poster.

I concur with her assessment - I dislike cooked oysters and they tasted like mush compared to the super-crispy fried bacon.

The other item we devoured with wild abandon were the fries - oh the fries - these were really delicious - perfectly crisp and dusted liberally with parmesan. Served with aioli which was also outstanding.

psb stuck around for a bit - maybe you'd like to add your thoughts about dinner ?
