Recent Restaurant Eats
I’ve been home for a couple of days and have thoroughly been enjoying it! Part of the reason is because I’ve been eating a bunch of good food! Here are a few of my recent restaurant eats…
Friday’s lunch was at The Cheesecake Factory (CF) in San Francisco. We went to SF for a mini girl’s day and we girls gotta eat! Lunch was delicious. I munched on two of CF’s Small Plates and Snacks. I love that CF has these smaller portion options for times when I can’t eat a lot or want multiple things. I ate a Greek Salad and a Roasted Pear and Goat Cheese Pizzette.
Greek Salad = Feta Cheese + Tomato + Cucumber + Kalamata Olives + Red Onions + Vinaigrette (on the side).
This was so satisfying and crunchy! I didn’t need the vinaigrette because the salad had so much punch and flavor already.
Roasted Pear and Blue Cheese Pizzette w/ Pecans, Argula and Caramelized Onion
Oh my gosh! This was so delicious! So cheesy! I loved the combination of all the flavors, the sweet and the savory. (I only ate half because I was full.) I will definitely try to replicate this sometime soon.
Saturday lunch at L&L Hawaiian Barbecue after my dad suggested we go there. (He like that kind of stuff.) I got the Healthier Salmon Patty, which came with a salad, brown rice, and dressing on the side. It was actually quite delicious! I loved the salmon and the salad was huge (yay veggies!).
My family at The Counter on Saturday. Basically, it’s a build your own burger joint. They have so many great options and their quality is exceptional. Here is what I got…
1/3 lb veggie burger on organic mixed green salad + danish blue cheese + dried cranberries + grilled onions + sliced cucumbers + tomatoes + country buttermilk ranch (on the side)
It was so so good! Their veggie burgers are amazing. And I can’t argue with melted cheese and grilled onions!
Last but not least, Sunday’s breakfast was enjoyed at Rick’s Cafe in Los Altos, Ca. I got the Salmon Bene “Cayenne” but made some changes to the original.
Lox salmon + two poached eggs + english muffin + hollandaise sauce (on the side) + capers and salad on the side instead of potatoes.
The lox was a bit dry (probably from being on the stove), which was a bit disappointing. However, the eggs and salad were delicious and I love all lox salmon no matter what. This restaurant is oh so delicious normally, very friendly, and has so many options!
