Food Porn: San Francisco and Wine Country Edition

My lack of posts last week was because of a week-long vacation to San Francisco and Wine Country. For the most part we were good. We ate well but ate right at the same time. There were a few occasions where we went off the reservation, as you will see below.

Roam Burgers doesn't mess around. On the left a bison burger "Pacific Blue" style: Blue Cheese, Watercress, Tomato, Caramelized Onions, Steak Sauce. On the right an elk burger "Heritage" style: Applewood Smoked Bacon, Fontina, Butter Lettuce, Tomato, Caramelized Onions, Herb Mayo. I ate both and they were gooooood. I also had a Dagoba (which I thought was a Star Wars reference but turns out to be a real company) chocolate milk shake that was phenomenal. Kara beat me in the milkshake department with her salted caramel. Seriously, could've had that milkshake everyday; it was that good.

The Trifecta at Roam Burgers: sweet potato fries, truffle fries and onion/zucchini fries.

Dottie's True Blue Cafe is so old school they don't even have a website. And they don't need one either. Everyone knows about this place. There's always a line, but it's worth the wait. This scramble may not look like much but the merguez lamb sausage on the inside was damn tasty.

Calf's liver with polenta and bacon at Mustard's Grill in Napa, CA. Really savory and good.

Mustard's is known for their lemon-lime meringue so we had to try it. Could have used a little more pie and a little less tidal wave of meringue, but it was still really good.

"Bacon in the batter" waffle with espresso gelato from Zazu in Santa Rosa, CA. I'm gonna have to paleofy this one.

Honorable Mention: While I didn't take any pictures of the food at Gracias Madre in San Francisco, it was one of the most flavorful meals I had the whole trip; and it's a vegetarian restaurant.
