Pecan crust, dark chocolate ganache, berries, cream, sea salt. $8
Pesce, San Francisco CA
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.

With vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. Per person dinner $20
Hutch Bar & Kitchen, Oakland CA
Ok, this tart was TINY, but I really didn’t mind after that gigantic fried chicken dinner. It still tasted great and the ice cream was an added bonus. Mmm…

Bourbon caramel sauce, vanilla ice cream, candied pecans. $9
Town Hall, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this dessert was very tasty and the peaches were great. The sticky bun was a bit too caramelized on the bottom and hard to cut through, but all the flavors were there and the vanilla ice cream helped to soften up everything.

This is a delicious way to get your weekly allowance of sugar! Be careful if you have any loose crowns or fillings because all the sticky, gooey caramelized sugar may just pop one out, hehe. $2.95
Duboce Park Cafe, San Francisco CA
Kayaker near the Bay Bridge.
Pecans, creme fraiche frosting. $5
Chambers Eat and Drink, San Francisco CA
I liked this cake – it was nutty and the creme fraiche frosting wasn’t overly sweet! Noms!
Bread flour, eggs, buttermilk, cream, sugar, cinnamon, raisins, brown sugar, butter, pecans, yeast, salt. $2.75
Arizmendi Bakery, San Francisco CA
Not too sweet, but utterly delicious. I’m kinda sad that I couldn’t eat it right away cause I’m sure it’s even better warm!

Baby beets, mixed greens, pecans, blue cheese, citrus sections, balsamic vinaigrette. $9
Trio Restaurant, Palm Springs CA
You can’t really tell, but there are tiny pieces of roasted beets in there – I swear! That was another disappointing thing about this restaurant – if I’m ordering a beet salad, I think the beets should be a prominent component! Ugh!
