So what’s the food like over here? Whilst British haute-cuisine like Sausage and Mash, or Pies are thin on the ground there are a few interesting alternatives:
- Californian food. Burgers. Plentiful. Varied. Quality. Tasty.
- Mexican food is outstanding. Chilango, La Cumbre are two places in San Francisco I’d recommend above others.
- Sushi – a rarety in London, it really rocks here in the Bay Area. Seems pretty cheap too.
There is also a trend for ‘fusion food’ over here. Not surprising given the melting pot society here. Just today I tried Mexican-Korean fusion of a kim chi burrito. Not the greatest actually.
A more pleasant combination was Mexican-Indian fusion food – for example, Curried Pumpkin Enchilada’s.
Taking the lead I experimented with a little English- Mexican food myself in the form of a `Tequila Trifle` with Mezcal Tequila replacing the sherry. Mmmm . Tasty!
