This chocolate torte was super rich and yummy. The berries and whipped cream were nice to help cut the rich chocolate, and the coarse sea salt was the perfect addition.

Gnocchi with milk-braised pork – Pesce

Gnocchi with milk-braised pork - Pesce
Maiale al latte. Pancetta, sage. $14
Pesce, San Francisco CA

I was surprised when this came out and it was almost a thick soup. When I read gnocchi, I thought it was gonna be a dry pasta dish. It’s pretty great that chefs can prepare food in so many ways. This dish was super rich and hearty, but it wasn’t my favorite. I’m not sure that I liked the gnocchi as a soup after all.

Pesce, San Francisco CA

Beautifully prepared scallops are a wonderful thing! These scallops were perfectly prepared and very tender. The cream sauce was pretty heavy especially since there was SO much of it for only 3 scallops, but it was still tasty.

Mmm, I love fritto mistos! Who doesn’t love a plate of battered and deep fried seafood and vegetables?! I thought the marinara sauce was a little lame, but I’m not gonna complain too much. 🙂
