California, Castro, food, Las Vegas, San Francisco, The Venetian

We’ve been eating around for two weeks, from Taco Bell to fine dining. Yesterday we talked aboout the best experiences, which leads to this blog post: the winners for the best meals are…

Restaurant 2223, San Francisco

Prawns, mussels and clams in yellow thai coconut curry with lemongrass and jasmine rice
“The hotness is just perfect”, cheered Miss H and once again we started a discussion about how good seafood we have eaten in costal California. Even the buttery chardonnay matched the food perfectly.

Catch, San Francisco

Miso glazed grouper, sautéed bok choy, udon noodles, dashi kumbo broth
“I don’t know half of thos words but it sounds good”, said Orvokki.
It was: great Japanese tastes. Miss H started to think about Blue Ribbon Sushi’s miso soup. My mixed seafood grill and her lobster with garlic pasta would place high on this list, too. Actually, everything in Catch has been great, and we were warmly greeted as we stopped there for our last drinks yesterday evening.

Pinot Brasserie by Joachim Splichal, Las Vegas

The restaurant is inside our hotel, The Venetian

Maine Lobster, fettuccini with artichokes in cream sauce

The lobster was “peeled” but still whole on the plate, and I had never imagined how well the pasta & sauce would go with it. Also the dessert, croissant bread pudding, was heavenly. Actually, during this trip we discovered the bread puddings. Warm pudding with ice cream… nami nami!
