Watermelon dashi, sweet and spicy pickles, lime aioli, crispy rice. 5 course tasting menu $85
Le Pigeon, Portland OR
This dish was just so fresh, bright, clean, and delicious! I loved the way they made the watermelon and tuna similar in appearance. It was like a surprise to see if you got a piece of watermelon or tuna before you took a bite. Yum!
Bread and salted butter.
Served with butter. $4.99
The Old Clam House, San Francisco CA
I don’t think I’ve every had garlic bread served in a skillet before, but I liked it! I liked the nice crusted created on the bottom of the bread. And omg, this bread tasted SO good when buttered and used to scoop up the delicious cioppino sauce. Noms!
Farmanova beet, arugula, crescenza. $16
Jardiniere, San Francisco CA
I liked this salad enough, but it was more of a leafy green salad with some bread thrown in than an actual bread salad. I liked the flavors, but I felt a little misled from the menu description. Definitely wouldn’t be on my list of things I have to try before I die.

Mesibah menu $53 per person
Zahav, Philadelphia PA
If I recall correctly, the daily topping for the hummus was some sort of mushroom mixture, but I could be wrong. Regardless, I remember that it tasted amazing and I couldn’t get enough!
Laffa bread baked in wood-burning oven. Omg, this bread was out of this world! I could eat this every day for sure!
Roasted squash, curry spiced granola, toasted coconut, bacon lardons. Tasting menu $95
Volt, Frederick MD
This super was very tasty and I think the curried granola really made it special. It added a unique flavor and need texture to the velvety soup. I will admit that the curry flavor began to dominate everything else towards the end. A very good soup overall.
Moka Cafe, Genoa Cristoforo Colombo Airport (GOA)
I didn’t like this very much. It was cold, soggy, limp, and super oily. Usually I like anything with olives on it, but this wasn’t my favorite. 😦
Cucumber, dill-yogurt, pickled pearl onions, toasted sesame seeds. $16
Tosca Cafe, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this bread was really delicious! It was fluffy and soft on the inside, and the outside was beautifully covered in butter, garlic, and topped with cheese. More, please!
