Eating On Our California Vacation (2013)
This is the second entry for my vacation number 1 recap (2 of 3). Check out the activities we took part in. This entry is all about food. The restaurants we ate at were fantastic. I try my best to eat fish or seafood when on vacation because I don’t regularly eat that here. So when I can get my hands on it, I do it. And this trip was a big success as far that goes.
The first restaurant was in San Simeon, just down the street from our hotel. The Cavalier restaurant is a part of the Best Western Cavalier Oceanfront Resort. I couldn’t find their menu online, but they had a variety of dishes. I don’t know the exact name of what I had, but it was a turkey wrap. I know it came with coleslaw, but I think it also came with French fries. It was a huge wrap filled with avocado, veggies, and of course turkey. I had about two thirds of it and stopped. I wanted to save room for the rainbow sherbet. It was very good, and there was more than it looked like. They packed a lot of sherbet into that small looking bowl.
The second place we ate was for lunch at the Blackhawk Plaza. A place called The Prickly Pear Cantina. Definitely a Mexican restaurant. Both my mom and I ordered the Classic Taco Salad, while my husband ordered the Quesadilla. Everything was huge! The taco salad was about a foot wide and very tall. The quesadilla was just as big. I’ve never seen a quesadilla that big before. I ate about half the taco salad and I was full. Very good food though. You can check out their menu here.
That night we had dinner at Firehouse 37 in Danville. Casual spot with really great food. I had the Cedar Plank Salmon and it was delicious. Very juicy and tender. Check out their menu here.
We found a nice little restaurant for lunch in Sausalito called Scoma’s Sausalito. There I had the Scoma’s Clam Chowder which was served in a bread bowl. I had all of the chowder, but the bread bowl itself was hard and was tough to eat. I just ate the lid off the bowl and scraped the insides of it out. You can see their menu here.
The last place we ate at was a very nice restaurant called The Peasant and the Pear. Again, I had the salmon, and again it was very good. I hate to admit it, but I did not eat the asparagus. I’ve never been a big fan of asparagus. I try it every now and then, and it’s always the same. Just not my taste. For dessert, I had the White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake. It was to die for. I want to go back just to have that again. You can find all of their menus here.
And that ends the food experience portion of the recap. I would highly recommend all of these places, they were all fantastic. Stay tuned for the last entry of the trip recap which will be about my walking and accessibility on the trip.
