Chocolate walnut donut – Shipley Do-Nuts

Chocolate walnut donut - Shipley Do-Nuts
Shipley Do-Nuts, Oxford MS

Mmm, this donut was pretty tasty! The chocolate glaze was on the thick side, but I didn’t mind. I loved the light, fluffy dough. Noms!


Burrata – 1760

Burrata - 1760
Grilled bread, garbanzo beans, asian pear, walnuts. $13

Mmm, this was pretty tasty! I loved the sculptural presentation and the variety of textures. I think there was also some pickled onions in there so it was all good. 🙂

Tiger roll – Wasabi Bistro

Tiger roll - Wasabi Bistro
Shrimp tempura, topped with snow crab and walnut. $13
Wasabi Bistro, San Francisco CA

Ugh, I was not a fan of the abundant, goopy white sauce on top. It reminded me of condensed milk (among other things) and it tasted a little sweet too. It definitely turned me off. I tried a piece and left the rest for the table.

I love roasted beets and this salad had a awesome combination of flavors and textures. It was super refreshing and delicious. I’ve never had Ethiopian wot before, but this mushroom wot reminded me of an Italian crostini. It tasted great!

Brownie a la mode – Mozzeria

Brownie a la mode - Mozzeria
Banana, walnut, vanilla ice cream. Pre fixe menu
Mozzeria, San Francisco CA

Mmm, this was pretty good and I’m not even into really sweet desserts. The brownie was moist and not super sweet as brownies go, thank goodness. I also liked that they bruleed the bananas individually. A great way to finish off a less than stellar meal. 🙂

Butter lettuce and Fuji apple salad – Town Hall

Butter lettuce and Fuji apple salad - Town Hall
Candied walnut, radish, Pt. Reyes blue cheese dressing. $12.50
Town Hall, San Francisco CA

Mmm, this salad was pretty tasty with all the classic flavor combinations. I’m a huge fan of Point Reyes blue because this local cheese company produces great products. And the dressing that Town Hall created with the blue cheese was delicious!

Flourless chocolate walnut fudgie – Flour Craft Bakery

Flourless chocolate walnut fudgie - Flour Craft Bakery
Huh, I wasn’t a fan of this cookie. It was too dry and crumbly. You’d expected that with something called a “fudgie” it would not only have a rich chocolate flavor, but also a dense chewy texture. This cookie had neither. I’ll stick with their regular cookies next time. Each $2.25
Flour Craft Bakery, San Anselmo CA

Backyard, Anaba Wines
Backyard, Anaba Wines. We hit this small tasting room on our drive home. It’s located at the intersection of Hwy 121 and Hwy 116 so it’s very convenient to stop by when leaving town. The people behind the bar are friendly and the back area is small but cute.
