Hmm, this was kinda too healthy for me. I needed more fat and flavor in this dish to truly enjoy it. I’m guess I’m just a horrible eater and don’t enjoy super healthy dishes. ūüė¶


Lamb guisado – Canela

Lamb guisado Canela

Lamb stew on seasoned quinoa cakes. Tapa $11
Canela, San Francisco

This was an interesting dish. I guess we didn’t know what to expect when we ordered it, but a pulled lamb stew wasn’t it.¬†It tasted good¬†and the quinoa cakes were really cool. They were underneath and they had a great texture. The dish was on the small side and dull looking. It needed some additional color.

Grilled day boat scallops – ANZU

Served with pickled yellow and red watermelon planks,quinoa upland cress, baby fennel and pink Hawaiian salt.
ANZU, San Francisco

This presentation was very beautiful. The bright pink from the Hawaiian salt played off the yellow and red watermelon slices and the cream colored scallops. The flavors, however, seemed unfocused. Between all the different flavors and textures, the scallops were lost.
