Caramelized anchovy – Benu

Caramelized anchovy Benu

With lily bulb, peanut, and pickles. Pre fixe dinner $180
Benu, San Francisco

I think the caramelized anchovy was actually the reddish, dome shaped gelee with more slices of lily bulb embedded inside. There were a few pieces of lily bulb scattered on the plate in addition to dried fish and pickle. I don’t know what the soft, white gelatinous cubes were. This dish totally brought me back to Filipino flavors and textures though. It struck me as odd to get that memory while eating at Benu!
