IF YOU WERE TO HAVE A LAST MEAL AT A LOCAL RESTAURANT, WHERE WOULD IT BE?
I go through phases. SF is hard because there are more restaurants than people. If I were going to die this week I think my last meal would be at Bar Tartine
. I have been going there quite a bit recently. The chef
is cooking Hungarian cuisine with a touch of Japanese and a California twist.
WHAT WOULD YOU ORDER?
I would have fried Lango Bread -a potato bread that’s fried. It reminds me of the fried dough I would get in Pennsylvania at a church bazaar growing up in the Summer. I would also have the fried potatoes, smoked with Alderwood and served with homemade aioli. Last but not least, a serving of Tartine sesame bread with lard, onions, and stuffed chicken breast with sausage.
It’s the perfect meal. It’s on the heavier side, but satisfying. I feel like it hits all of the food groups. It is very decadent. I would be happy if this were my last meal.
