Buckwheat pancakes - Joule
Rhubarb chutney, walnut, whipped cream.
Joule, San Francisco CA

I liked the combination of slightly savory and sweet in this dish, and the texture of the buckwheat pancakes was great. I would say that was a pretty successful plate!

Omg, this box was heaven! I tried a little bit of everything and each seemed tastier than the previous. I don’t think I could choose a favorite; they were all good. What a marvelous bakery with delicious creations for us common folk!

Noms! We went to Wayfare Tavern with my roomies and had a fabulous time. The service was amazing and I loved the drinks. Dare I say, I loved them more than the food? It’s true. The drinks are expertly made. Although, you really can’t beat their popovers (more to come about that).

Rhubarb ice cream – Bi-Rite Creamery

Rhubarb cream - Bi-Rite Creamery
We used to grow rhubarb for sale growing up, but I only ever had it in pies or crumbles and usually mixed with a fruit of some kind. This ice cream tasted good, but I wish it had a punchier rhubard flavor. I remember rhubarb having a slight sourness that this ice cream lacked. Kid size $2.50
