Here’s a look into my San Fran posts :), and my post on famed steakhouse, House of Prime Rib (post) My flight over to SF was even a huge foodie heaven! Read that here! Fine Dining on fresh seafood in San Fran..try out the Water Bar!
When we arrived; we were a few minutes early for our reservation…but we got to see a very cool CAKE!!! All decked out like the Candlestick Park!
We begin with an assortment of oysters. Most of them specials that Water Bar recommended..The Humboldt Kumamoto US$4….a piece were SOOO good! We had over 2 dozens of their best oysters!
Wood Over Roasted Dungeness Crab Legs | Meyer lemon, garlic, spiced raw beet salad |US$16. This was a surprise hit for me. It tasted very similar to the Chinese style crab legs we order at big family gatherings. But with a Western twist and kick! Spicy, full of garlic and tender juicy crab meat!
Grilled Ono |Cauliflower puree, braised leeks, uni butter, shoestring potatoes| US$36. This was divine!! I was sooo sad I didn’t order it- because it was definitely delish!! The ono was marinated to perfection: buttery, juicy, flavourful, soft and decadent. The uni butter was a perfect match atop the milky soft ono fish. Finish off with some of the most delightfully crunchy shoestring fries…mmmmmmm
Braised Kale |Olive Tapenade |US$7....Kale lovin’ in SF! 🙂 It was pretty good, but baked kale…still the best!
Oven Roasted Sablefish| Red Curry Braised Pumpkin, Black Rice, Pea Leaves, Sierra Beauty Apples | US$37. I went with the recommended sable fish, but I have to admit it was pretty good, but for the price- it wasn’t all that great. Very salty and tough to chew. :/ Not my best fish.
2 rounds of Gingersnap skyy vodka | Luxardo maraschino liqueur. ginger beer lemon | US$11 🙂 Slightly happy off of this.
Ice Cream Sandwich |chocolate fudge cookie, chef’s selection of ice cream, bittersweet sauce | US$9. This ice cream sandwich was just the right cap off to the night! But it is a BIG BIG cookie. The ice cream was a honey ginger flavour. The outside was a chocolate fudge ….BIG BIG cookie. Stuffed, to say the least.
