I was raised eating really simple meals. Living here in the states, is taking a lot of adjustments for my tastebuds to adapt, and mostly I never enjoy most meals because they are too rich and with complicated different flavors. It’s also so seldom now that I manage to eat simple Filipino food. So when I do get to eat some, I always go for simple boiled rice, fried fish (today it’s smoked milk fish) and chopped tomatoes seasoned with sea salt, and I am always over the moon and thoroughly satiated.
Brunched with my lovely friend Roxane last Friday @ CLIFF HOUSE, SAN FRANCISCO and I happily enjoyed their complimentary popovers (bread basket) which I ate with whipped butter and strawberry jam more than I enjoyed my burger, but their garlic fries is to die for. Also Dungeness Crab Cocktail (and Roxane), Camera Obscura and Sutro Baths.
