Taste of Monterey

After our Pierce Ranch Vineyards adventure, Jake and I ventured down to the more touristy part of Cannery Row to check out the new bistro inside of Taste of Monterey. I'd been seeing enough drool-inspiring photos from there, so I figured we'd give it a try...even on the busiest tourist weekend of the year. So glad that we did! Here's what we tried...

Applewood Bacon-Wrapped Dates filled with bleu cheese and drizzled with saba, which is a new-to-me ingredient

Inzana Farms Almonds & Pistachios with brown sugar, cayenne, thyme

Chicken Tikka Masalad Phyllo rolls with a fragrant spinach-masala sauce and walnut chutney

Pig Wizard Flatbread with fennel sausage, foraged mushrooms, roasted peppers, and toma cheese

Jake had a raspberry wheat from Peter B's and I - designated driver for the day - stuck with water. Besides, I was still swooning from the Pierce Ranch Vineyards' Cosecheiro.
