Eating In SF

It's been an interesting 24 hours of San Francisco food.

First, there was Nom (a spicy papaya and peanut salad) and Bo Luc Lac (deliciously earthy and tender beef cubes in a dark sauce, dipped in a spicy vinegar sauce) and the estimable BoDeGa Bistro.

Then, breakfast at Dottie's True Blue Café, where I learned that I have been overcooking my pancakes. Their pancakes, well worth the wait, were a lovely brown on the outside and meltingly liquid inside. Delicious. And the home fries were superb.

Lunch: a very nice duck confit and salad. The light alternative was roasted vegetables and couscous; I'll take confit 7 times out of 10.

And dinner at Zuni: a persimmon salad and a roast chicken. A very impressive roast chicken, with a lovely bread dressing and wilted greens, superbly done. I wasn't really expecting that much from Zuni, but it was delightful: nice service, a terrific space, and really well done food.

I might not eat for a while, though.
