recipes this month, I also got to try some new restaurants. Bonnie, Rebecca and I decided to check out Schulzies in Hayes Valley the other weekend. I loved it! Instead of stale bread they use soft white bread (mmm) and they serve it up cold like ice cream (base flavor, plus toppings and sauce if you want it). I got the banana flavor with extra bananas and blueberries on top- major yum.
Bistro Aix (like Aix en Provence in France). SUCH a fantastic meal! Everything we ate was delicious and we all thoroughly enjoyed it- no complaints! My brother and I shared the House Cured Salmon on Potato Galette with Dill cream- AH-mazing I could have eaten 10- the potato galette was like crispy hashbrowns on the bottom mmm. I ended up getting the roast chicken (it was a tough choice) and it was perfectly crispy and the veggies were amazing. We ended the night by splitting the chocolate cloud cake- it was heavenly. Highly recommend checking this place out if you need a place to eat in the Marina.Major bonus: the walls are padded so you can actually hear each other and hold a decent conversation. Only downside was that I could clearly hear the worlds most awkward first date next to us- the highlights:
1.When she told him that she was having expensive (emphasizing expensive) procedures done to remove wrinkles on her face to which he reasonably asked 'how old are you?' and she came back with the ever-deadly-known-to-sink-a-good-man question 'how old do you think I am?'. He intelligently guessed low so she seemed happy
2. When she told him that if her friends had to label her they would label her the 'church girl'. Hey to each their own but when someone goes on and on and on and on for 15 mins about how much they looooove church its starts to get annoying- also start to see why her friends call her 'church girl'. She ended that by saying the only thing she loves more than church is bible study. I personally would have gone with the chocolate cloud cake but that is why I am not known as the 'church girl'
